    SHHHH! I turned 50 this year.

    People say they would never know by the
    twinkle in my eye
    the smoothness of my skin
    my figure still so trim
    the spring in my walk
    or the giggle in my talk.


    And I don't know it either.
    My heart still flutters
    I still stutter
    whenever he is near
    I am still just a girl.

    Smiling

    Now that sounds more like the GayLee we have come to appreciate. The one who likes herself, and is strong enough to share how young she is, even if only as a whisper, lol.

    You're a smooth one, Lady Gaylee...and no, I'd never believe you are 50!!!!! (cuz I'm looking it dead in the eye mydamnself! LOL)

    I relate to this fluttering heart, this inner fire that's been smoldering since that first love... and it feel goods...no, BETTER!

    Getting to that juicy part in the middle...it ain't over for a girl. :) :heart:
