Morning Gloria~

I would say you look exceptionally hot this morning~ SMOKIN HOT! Love your new blog dress. Brookes and Dunne are playing at the rodeo 3/21 but I couldn't get tickets. They are one of my fav's, too. I will be going to see ZZ Top instead. It'll still be fun anyway. Girl, I can see you dancing and singing up a storm, I do it all the time~ it's so good for the soul~ wouldn't you agree? Even though I can't sing worth a darn, I sure do try..lol. :) Oh, and you are NEVER too old!!!!

Have a great weekend!!!

Hi Gloria, love the new look! I was looking at your vintage signs in the previous post, what a great collection you have.

Also, I have to tell you, if you looked good enough to support your kids working as a playboy bunny, you should BRAG about it! I'm totally jealous!

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Ohhh yes! Did I ever notice your new blog look here! Wow, how gorgeous.

It was kind of like I did a double take. Like if you walk into a familiar store. And it looks sooo different. That you stop and have to go back outside and look at the sign again, to make sure you're in the store, you planned on entering. -gigggggggggles-

Well my Dear, you are looking oh so classssssy. And of course, you look thinner. Mahhhhhhhhhvelous. That's it. You are looking mahhhhvelous these days. :-) I think we all could do well with adopting that style wig and clothing. We'd all look thinner! >,-)

Plus, you just know that lady has a glass of Champagne in her hand too!

Hi Gloria,

Love your new blue look. It goes with your eyes and complexion. It was such a surprise to open your blog that I thought I must have walked into another Gloria's place. Congrats on being a prize winner. Oh, those two little greatgranddaughters are beautiful. Kyra looks so sweet and healthy. Keeping her and all of your family in my prayers. Hugs, Fieldstone/Pam
