They're getting longer!!!


 My nails, of course..and I love them.  From last spring:

And now:


Not sure how much longer Wifey will let me grow them, but the nail tech has an eventual goal for my fingers - she wants to eventually work them up to  at least 1 inch  beyond the ends of my fingers (or more), and keeep both fingers and toes in red (or other) matching colors.   We'll see how that goes!

More later!

Hugs,  Mandy

Playing in the snow...

 Sorry about the delay in posting..."life sometimesw gfeets in the way!!

Wifey and  I recently spent a few days in the mountains of western North Carolina.  The weather "wasn't so hot." (Pun inteended!)  Good thing I brought a pair of closed shoes....would have been too cold for sandals!

So  I got to make my "first snowball of the year..."  And before you ask. we didn't do a typical; "snowball fight!"

About 9 months ago, we moved south to TN, to be closer to our son and grandkids.  So the sandals and capris work almost to Christmas!  And everyone’s fine with it, as they are with me in comfortable house-dresses and bare feet around the house and yard.


I now wear only shorts (hot weather), capris, and stirrup or traditional leggings.  No more regular pants. And am lovin’ it!   (No wonder Wifey and I are almost always addressed as two women.)  But still - no skirts or dresses allowed in public.


Since the pandemic set in about the same time as all the above, there haven’t been any solo trips (though I’m planning a couple in the future.)  And we’ve had only a couple recent trip together, and with my leggings and ballet flats, pink nails, long hair, purse and so on.


We had no trouble being addressed as a woman most of the time.  Wifey’s become somewhat tolerant of it…

Good to be back!


As I mentioned in my previous post, I haven’t been very active on Blogger for well over a year.  What got in the way?  

Well, life – yes, I’m still retired.  But a lot has occurred since the end of 2019/beginning of 2020…and to be honest, I had a brief experiment with another blogging program (which shall remain nameless), and it did not go well.  


So, here I am…back again!  (In one of my favorite dresses!)  To avoid a lot of writing, the next few posts will be a short refresher of what’s been happening.
