    Forget the fancy skin creams and vitamins. The secret to living to be 89 and beyond and looking fabulous is as follows:

    1. Snickers
    2. Diet Cherry 7-Up

    3. Don’t waste time cleaning switch plates

      oh, she is lovely!!! I hope my diet of all things chocolate (I’m not picky), unsweet ice tea and cleaning NOTHING will do the same for me!

      Happy Birthday Aunt Jean!!

      Blessings,
      Karla

      It’s in the smile. That beautiful smile on them both. There is some happiness there that adds to the youthful combination. A love of life and laughter.

      Aunt Jean looks lovely and truly Bossy is willing to ditch all her switch plate cleaning if it means in thirty years she’ll still look that sexy in red.

      I’m guessing because they are sisters Cleo can’t be too far behind and she looks amazing too.
      How fun to be related to people who are so spunky and vibrant. I love that.

      My husband has a 93 year old Aunt Cleo who is sharp as a tack. She still wears bright red lip stick and one day while putting on her lipstick, she said, “I wonder why all the men are so crazy about me.”

      My husband has an aunt, Aunt Bar, that came along in his package. I adore her. She is 83. Walks AT LEAST 4 miles per day, takes wood carving classes, love to laugh more than anyone I know, loves my kids as much as I do and cleans like nobody’s business.
      I didn’t meet her until the day before my wedding and instantly fell in love with her. We only see her once a year but we write REAL letters to one another at least ever 2-3 weeks. What a treat she is! I’m so happy you have an “Aunt Bar” too. Every one should have one.

      I’ve always suspected that the switch plates have been aging me. I think I’ll cut that out of my household cleaning routine and go take that “Real Age” test again, just to see if I gain a decade or so.

      Ha. Who am I kidding?

      How often do people–I mean, other than Aunt Jean–actually bother to clean their switch plates?
