Hello, my name is elizabeth!

Monday, August 22, 2011

So happy to meet you. emoticon
I was born in 1952, one of 14 kids (7+7).
I am a retired teacher, mother of 3, an avid reader, a good cook and a wicked gym rat. emoticon
I live in Rhode Island, the smallest of the 50 -between Boston and New York.
Over the years, I dieted my way up to almost 200 lbs- never again!!!

Here I am in 1955 or so:

(Looking SO much like my dear late mother in this one).

Here's me today- 59+and looking every minute of it (the price I pay for being a sun-worshipper) - with my new haircut (the jury is still out on it- what do you think?):

OOOPs! Dear me, that last one was my beloved grandson, William!
How did THAT get in there?

    I like the hair cut too. And that is an adorable grand son. I like the early photo too. I agree with Ms Dolly about doing something like this on the next challenge!

    Glad to be officially introduced to you Elizabeth! We might have to borrow this idea for the Cats next 5% challenge.

You look gorgeous and great for your age. The sunworshippers down here look more like wrinkled dried up leather, not beautiful women.

    Cool! I had the same haircut as your one in 1955. My mum always cut it when I was young. In fact, I have a photo that's so similar, I may have to post it.

Have a good journey to your villa and a wonderful time when you get there.

Bon voyage!

Loved the intro!!!

    Good to see you, Elizabeth! The smile more than makes up for the haircut -- true beauty doesn't depend on hairstyles!

Glad you're here!

  I love it!! I'm a fan of short hair anyway ~ my own pixie cut feels too long when my hair measures an inch. I think it looks wonderful and you look gorgeous!

    Cute haircut and you don't look 59 at all more like 40.
