Selfie


I lost a bet recently and to pay up,
 a new selfie on my blog was requested.



Selfies are kinda hard to take, aren't they?
You have to hold the camera across from your face,
hold steady and smile pleasantly at nothing.
In my case, I had a cat tickling my legs and making me laugh!



So, we'll blame Smokey for the giggling.
OK, I've paid my dues!  
Back to our regularly scheduled programming. ha.

    1. Thanks, Helen! Remember my braces? So glad I did that! :)

      Delete
    2. I do remember! Think I told you once I had braces, the metal kind, for almost three years when I was in my 20s ... so worth all the agony. Mid-way thru, they pulled off all the metal, pulled four teeth and began over! That was in addition to my wisdom teeth coming out! Almost 73 and my teeth are still hanging in there! Yours will too.

      Delete
    3. I remember that you had braces as an adult, but not the wisdom teeth and starting over! Ugh! But it is worth all the pain and money...I don't regret mine one bit and I know you don't either. I'm so glad I did it!

  6. What a doll! I bet you light up the room in real life. So fun to see a current picture of you - I wondered if you kept your hairstyle from a while back. It is so flattering.

    1. Well, thanks Miss Dishy! You're so sweet. :) I did get it cut again the same way...which I don't usually do! But it's a little longer the second time around. I like it better, I think...and I have to be able to pull it up.

    I just love both selfies and very well done.
    What a lovely smile. Thanks Smokey for initiating the giggle
    and the dentist would be a very poor man if everyone had a set of teeth like that. Did you take the photos today? :)

  14. Great selfies. And you're so pretty - lovely, glowing skin. I always look really severe on mine. Maybe it depends what lens you use but they always make my nose look big (and it isn't really!)
