LOL.

We could start an investment club. Buy a few shares of some stock or mutual fund.

I have no doubt it would be your inner charisma and inner beauty that would dominate the picture. The actual outer revelation would only help to frame your many thoughts and posts.

Then again, maybe with my two baby shih tzus. Well, there is also my three wonderful girls.
Cute idea.
Do you know that Walgreens makes calendars very quickly. Also, many online sites, but I've found cost wise the drug stores are the least expensive and quick.
Ok, now tell me this was just a joke.
Heck, no - we should do it.

You could be walking on the beach, with your sweet furkids!!!

Heeheehee....I'm working up the nerve. I may opt instead to DM you the photo IF (1) you promise not to laugh and DM each other with your comments (2) you do not send or post this anywhere, ever.

The photo definitely shows another side of me and blows my three current covers a dignified New England lady with high-class Italian (Milan, Gucci, Ferrari) and French (all the best) taste, a backwoods bumpkin living in a cabin, and a beachcomber turning out best-sellers on a laptop on top of a dune. In retirement I actually have time for these.

Poets can only capture in words what others have created. Remember only God can make a tree.

The photo definitely shows another side of me and blows my three current covers – a dignified New England lady with high-class Italian (Milan, Gucci, Ferrari) and French (all the best) taste, a backwoods bumpkin living in a cabin, and a beachcomber turning out best-sellers on a laptop on top of a dune.

I am sure you saw the movie, "Julia" with Jane Fonda and Vanessa Redgrave.

You can be Jane Fonda (a spiffed up Lillian Hellman) in the cottage on the beach, writing . . . my memory goes back to that little house in the dunes so often . . . I have been hunting for that house for decades, but alas . . . I think none exists since all the development that occurred along shorelines after the 60s.
