Beauty



I just love this lady. She's one of our parishioners who submitted a photo for the church bulletin in our new section called Temptation People. Everybody likes it when there are chuckles in the aisles and sometimes having a funny-looking cat like me just isn't enough!

On the subject of how people look, I've always been a great admirer of feminine beauty. I've often wondered, though, about all of the things that women use as they seek perfection. At least, Mary Lou does. I can't even jump up on the bathroom counter without knocking over a bunch of stuff and getting into trouble. I feel like a bowling ball hitting some pins. What I've scrambled over includes masks for the face, moisturizers, eye cream, makeup of every description and a cream to take it all off again. There's hair spray and other stuff that smells like roses, happiness for all our noses.. There's hand lotion, foot lotion, lotion for the body, and cream for the elbows, knees and feet.. and swing your partner, do-si-do! hehehe..


Oh, well, me? I always smell good. Jack thinks I smell pampered. Moi?

It reminds me of the story about the model who was being interviewed. She was very pretty and looked to be a great candidate. When the interview was over, she was thanked and the man said, "Where can I get ahold of you?" "I don't know," she answered, "I'm awfully ticklish!"

ha ha- your joke was funny. M has stuff like dat all over too. I drink water from the bathroom sink and sometimes she forgets to fill the sink after she's done putting all dat goo all over her face. Geeesh! I just don't understand women.

Mum loved the story about the ticklish model - she keeps giggling to herself!! She has plenty of lotions and potions to put on her face too - we keep telling her a beautiful furry face is such a lot less trouble.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

I'm reading the labels more now...like "age rewind"
Does that mean I can be a kitten again?

Father Tom, we first want to start off by saying thank you for stopping by our blog to wish Zoe a happy Gotcha Day! It was so nice to meet you. We think Maine Coon cats are just gorgeous and you are no exception. Your story about moms and their 'tools' is funny! Our counters are full of junk too!

Happy Sunday, friend!
