Yup. This would be me. Multicolor hair. Kind of boney, especially through the shoulders. Absolutely no cleavage. A rather blank look on my face. Coffee cup in hand, wondering how in the hell-o so many years have gone by so fast. It seems as though I was young, and then, I was old with nothing in between. I think raising adolescents had something to do with missing those in between years.
Being serious, the card is my take on Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #127. It also meets the criteria for Crazy for Challenges C4C54 – a black, red, and kraft color challenge. I love the stamp. It makes me laugh.

A Slice of Life: Have I mentioned that fall seems to have arrived in Minnesota? The days are cool. It is downright cold at night. We’re hoping it warms up a bit one of these days … for a little while, at least. This morning held the promise of a nice day until it clouded up, and the wind started to blow. If the sun comes out again, it will be a nice afternoon.
Mom and I went out for lunch and did a little shopping downtown before I came home to get ready for the wedding we’re attending at 4 pm.
The memory of the 9-11 tragedy has not escaped me today. I remember. We all need to remember.
I’ll leave you with a wish that you are safe and as Abe Lincoln once said, as happy as you’ve made up your mind to be. Take care, friends.
