    I don’t have wrinkles. The ravines on my face are character lines, at least they curl upwards… Why do you think I laugh so much?

    Wrinkles? I ain’t got no stinking wrinkles. I have frown lines. Perhaps wrinkles would be better.

    Do you ever listen to Sorry I haven’t a clue? Some brilliant word definitions there, might tickle your fancy.

    Don’t I just love them all…but I love the “yawn!” You’re a clever one!


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
