My avatar picture was taken on the night of my son’s high school graduation. It is my favorite pic. Normally I look like a Russian farmer’s wife (no disrespect to russian farmer’s wives) all ruddy and dry:) But that was one of the happiest days of my life and I love remembering it.

Anyhoo, my dad used to tell me that no one would ever want to marry me because of my looks. And I once overheard the couple I babsysat for talking about me. She was telling someone that he had said something along the lines of, she’s an ugly duckling. So, like most of us I’ve had my share of body slams:)

Anyhoo, back to the post in hand. I think you should continue to work on this as it does have a good message.
