Timeless Beauties

A few months ago my sister and I had a conversation.  It went a little like this:

My sister: (looking in magazine) Wow, Helen Mirren is on fire!

Me: (looking at magazine page over her shoulder nodding my head)  She looks amazing.

My sister: If I look like that when I am her age....(side eye with attitude and and strikes a diva pose)

Me:  Not sure if the world is ready for you just yet.  (cracking up laughing)

My sister:  Well, ready or not.....(chuckling and browsing through magazine again)

Fortunately Helen is not the only one looking great as she gets older.  There are many other women her age and older who are as my sister would put it "holding it down!"

Here are some of them, most of them over 70 years old.  Enjoy!

Thought Of The Day

“Often the strongest blades were pounded the hardest, or scorched the most severely; We judge them by their strength and sharpness, not by their prior rough experiences. With our comrades it should be the same. A good blade is rarely forged in a velvet box.”

But Wait, There's More.......Snow In ATL

Well, Would-da-ya know more snow here.  In ATL.  Again.  A blizzard this time.  I guess old man Winter wants to go out with a bang.  What a drama queen!

Here are a few pics from the carnage.
The last one is the most recent.  It was taken a few hours after the storm ended.  Ahhhhhhhhhh, is that the sun?  Welcome back friend!

The ATL Blues

The excerpt below was nation wide news just days ago.  And it was all true.   Not one bit of it was hype or pumped up for dramatic effect.  This really happened.  I live here in ATL so I am still in  "what the heck!!!" mode.  They say a picture is worth more than a thousand words so here are a few pics to show you what I am talking about.  I shot most of them and a few are media sites.  I am not a snow hater but  it won't break my stride one bit if it disappears totally for a few years. Just sayin, I need some sun. At this point just the thought of Spring makes me light headed and giggly. Can. Not. Wait!

"Forecasters had warned of a freak Southern snowstorm, but schools and offices remained open Tuesday. Mass chaos and gridlock ensued when offices closed early and an exodus of midday commuters headed home.Less than 3 inches of snow brought the city to a freezing halt. Children camped out in schools or on buses. Hundreds of motorists were marooned for hours on highways and onramps; some abandoned their cars and walked home through the snow. Workers spent the night in their offices.

One woman delivered a baby inside a car stuck on a frozen highway, aided by her husband and a police officer. She named the girl Grace.
Georgia National Guard troops delivered military meals and water to stranded motorists. Other troops and police rescued children from schools and delivered them to firehouses and other sanctuaries. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said all students made it home safely by Wednesday.  But another hard freeze was predicted overnight."
