    Mr. Lane actually says I look better without any makeup. Works for me! I used to love putting on makeup but I despise doing so now...I'll do some for work, but it's minimal (lipstick and mascara; and maybe a touch of powder). No foundation! I hate foundation!

    That would be a good reason to keep shaved

    Just for the record, I haven't shaved since 1981.

Kind of bluesey, kind of retro, kind of punk and folk mixed together. But it worked and the band members were really nice. And it was nice to go somewhere with my daughter and it be fun.
    You are a cool mom and your story reminded me of how cool my mom was. When my mom was 70, she and I visited my sister (who lives near San Francisco) and Kathy took us to an alternative club. The lead act was a bizarre fellow who 'played' these different-length metal tubes by hitting them with a skinny metal stick. It was beyond crazy. Then the three of us were in line to use the restroom and there was a rather strange looking woman standing in front of me in a skin-tight leopard-print dress. She was wearing strappy sandals and as I caught a glimpse of them I was horrified to see these mammoth, hairy toes sticking out. I tried not to let my facial expression betray my horror, though, and smiled weakly when she glanced at me. Well, she ended up in the stall next to me and imagine my horror when I realized her feet weren't pointing away from the wall but toward it! It's then that I realized she was a he. My mom who was on the other side of him/her, noticed it too, and we roared with laughter when we were safely inside the car going home. She was such a good sport about things like that and we continued to chuckle about it many years later.

    My beard isn't really all that long. I take the weed-whacker to it a few times a year to maintain it at about eight or ten inches..

    My friend took a picture of me last weekend and I am PASTY white. I'm going to try to be outside this weekend, in hopes that those 50 degree rays will help me get some color (wishful thinking). I keep shaving all winter too-- I do wear shorts to the gym, but also, I just like the feeling better anyway.

    I usually don't wear makeup to work or anything, but I was going out to dinner with some people I used to work with, so I wore makeup and heels on Wednesday. When my boss saw me (I don't necessarily see him every day or week, even), he definitely commented (and promptly asked me if I had a date that night, where I knew him from, etc etc).

    Is your weedwhacker a sears or the REAL weedwhacker brand?

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Thanks Roses. My daughter's friends all tell me we're the "cool" parents. Of course, my daughter doesn't think so.

    I wear makeup about half of the time. It really depends on my moods and where I'm going.
    My husband is very easy going and he says I look fine all the time, but he also knows better than to comment on some things. He would never ask me to wear makeup for one.

    I truly am lucky in him because he's ALWAYS said it was the inside of me that counts with him. He was looking at photos before I lost weight and he says: "gosh, I really don't remember you looking like that". He is a sweetie!

    I know women that have one distinct style. When you see them whether its casual or dressy, they have that one style. Me, I go with my moods. I can braid my hair, wear no makeup, boots, faded, ripped jeans and a camo jacket as comfortably as I can wear my hair up, my "full" makeup and a fancy outfit and heels. Of course, I don't dress up all that often.
    Anyway, I just go with what I feel like and fortunately Mr. Rosie is cool with whatever. ALL he asks is that I dont' become "high maitenence" and if I do, not to involve him in it. We have a teenager and her "look" is very high maitenence and he's sick of it as she whines about it constantly.

    I know a few women that no one has EVER seen them without makeup. They don't swim, go to the beach, boating, one won't ride in a convertible, because it will mess up her hair. My husband told me after one of these conversations with her (she's married to a really good friend) that he was glad I was a "shower and go girl", because he didnt' think he could stand being married to someone who wouldn't do the stuff we like to do because it would mess up my hair and makeup. I couldn't stand that either! I'd have missed out on an AWFUL lot in my life if I had that rule. But I guess I would have always looked good though. He once said to me after kneeboarding and waterskiing with friends that I "glowed". Heck yeah, I'd been in the water and sun and had just had a thrill ride and spent the day laughing and having fun with my friends and husband. Best "makeup" in the world!!!!
