How to torture yourself......

Well, the basement rehab is going well. I'm pitching, giving, sorting and I am happy even if not able to move. Lugging heavy boxes up and out of the cellar is really hard on an old fart. Harder yet was getting the old plastic shelves out in one piece without wrecking something---namely, me.


So to further humiliate myself, I find, in the rooting process, a photo of myself from YEARS AGO. I mean, young and thin and with a waist and legs up to THERE! It was taken when I was painting nose art on a B-17 at Grissom Air Force Base that was in the restoration process. I think I was 24 and still single and just full of myself! (ah! youth!)


Anyway, here it is for a laugh. Vintage cheesecake!



Where did that body go???? It must be buried in the cellar somewhere.....I need to keep rooting. Or maybe I was abducted by aliens and left in this plump, sagging specimen I loosely refer to as *me*. I'm crossing my fingers that I find THIS girl down there!!! And if I do, I'm abducting her and we're off to the plastic surgeon..........


In the meantime, back to the work at hand.


Ick.

Hey girls....let's put this in the proper tense----I "WAS" hot!!! (actually, it was a hot day when that pic was taken, then I sat on a wasp and got stung in the arse, almost passed out and had to have the guys working on the planes haul me--physically--over to some of the buildings with A/C as we waited to see how bad an allergic reaction I was going to have! that is no joke---we were on the verge of calling the medics: "Corpsman, would you please examine me arse where I got stung???")
Oh yeah---Anne-adventures......the good old days! Now there are at least TWO of the chick in the pic, sharing one pair of jeans......
Oy.

Yowsa! Think of it this way, you still look the same, just have a few layers covering that other bod up! I don't imagine those corpsmen minded in the least hauling you around, they likely would have been happy to haul you anywhere!

Quite honestly, I was never so mortified in my LIFE. I had a scar from that wasp sting for years....I think it just sort of stretched out as the skin *filled in*..... ;)
