Lisa Snowdon…..A final…there’s no more coming…Lady-in-Red!….It’s funny how just wearing a pair of red shoes can get you inducted into my Lady-in-Red Club…..I probably make it too easy, but it certainly allows for a lot more contestants to put their names in the hat (in the ring?)…..Lisa Snowdon is famous (infamous?) for something besides her awesome beauty and dazzling legs….Let me think!!….Thinking….thinking….thinking….As Dexter would say, “I’ve got nothin’ for you…Sorry!”…Maybe she’s the daughter of Lord Snowdon who is famous (infamous?) for something…I think???

10 Ways to Take Stunning Portraits

College Life…perfectly capsulated!!…And perfectly encapsulated!!…Well, the academic aspect of college, the “I gotta study and this is a lot, lot harder than high school” aspect of college….Of course, I did have a lot of friends & acquaintances who didn’t realize there WAS an academic aspect to college….And no, not ALL of them failed….One guy went on to become an admiral in the Navy…One guy went on to become a bartender….It was kind of like the college gods were rolling dice up in Zeus-dom and one guy came up with a hard eight….and the other guy….well, I guess they lost the dice…He didn’t even get a roll!!….And no, the bartender was NOT happier than the Admiral….Had a better looking wife, though….And he was 5 times as ugly as the Admiral….There’s no lesson here….I’m just stating the facts as they were presented to me as I studied my ass off to get good grades and amount to something….Of course, I DID get good grades and haven’t amounted to much of anything…..Like I said, There’s no lesson here…just the facts, mam, just the facts!…Well, one lesson….I should’ve screwed off more when I had the chance….and you never get as good of a chance to screw off in life as in college….Guess that’s TWO lessons.

“Woman in a Mirror”…..Lady-in-Red in a Mirror means you get “Two Times a Lady—–in-Red!”…..Oh, I guess it’s supposed to be “Once, Twice, Three Times a Lady”…..Guess I screwed that up…..Love the painting, though….Courtesy of my incredible Stumbler friend Dobedobedo……1907 (the painting, not Dobedobedo!)…..by Theo Van Ryssellbberghe…..Yes, one of those Van Ryssellberghes!

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this!!…..Cuz I be nuts, too!!!…..All of those almonds & walnuts I’ve been cramming down my gullet for the sake of “living forever” health!!….Of course, I have been washing them down with a cup of Captain Morgan’s and a shot of Creme de Menthe so it hasn’t been ALL about health….or living forever…..which, these days, who the hell wants to accomplish anyway, huh??
