Glamour Girl

February 16, 2011 – I will forever remember the day Lucy arrived at the 7MSN. 
It was the very first time I met her in person. There's something to be said for online dating after all. 
Anyway, it was the middle of winter and she came from Colorado wearing a heavy, shaggy winter coat.



Winter turned to spring and spring turned to summer and the winter coat came off, slowly but surely.
Underneath those Andy Rooney eyebrows was one gorgeous glamour girl.


Seeing her every day, I hadn't realized how much Lucy's looks have changed over the past five months until recently. 
Many of you have noticed it, too, commenting on the dapples in her coat that you have seen in this week's posts. 
They have emerged like festive little polka dots.



I've always thought Lucy was beautiful, but now she is simply stunning.
Yeah, and she sort of knows it. There's a little bit of diva underneath those high cheekbones.


Hank: She's a looker. I get it. But until the day she gets an agent and starts putting beans on the table, 
we've still got to eat, and that means you have to put that damned camera down and feed us. Capisce?

Me: Yes, sir. I had no idea you spoke Italian.

    I know you like the natural look and that's good, not so much work. Oh!, but when you remove the whiskers, shape up the ears (I'm not one for clipping in the ears)just remove the longer hairs, shape up the mane (some people like to remove it all), and a good bath (which lasts for a micro second), and finally a good brushing of the teeth (JUST KIDDING). She looks OUTSTANDING, then she rolls and it's just a memory. But we all know what's underneath and THAT'S WHAT COUNTS (for people, too). Hugs to the kids

    Love the pics and enjoy the "conversations" you have with your animals. Perhaps the heat is making Hank a little cranky??

  7. Lucy is beautiful, inside and out. And you hit the nail on the head with "Andy Rooney eyebrows." I knew she reminded me of someone.

  8. She is stunning, isn't she? Glad to see Hank still runs the show around there, though. Ooops...you'd better hop to it.

  10. Seeing Hank and Lucy side by side makes me wonder: Who's the dominant character here? Does Hank still rule?

  13. Andy should be proud! Lucy and Hank really look good together, although she's got him beat in the ear department!

  14. Id like to invite everyone to read a blog post today of a woman who joined the old order Mennonite church from the outside. I'm extremely lucky in publishing her very first, and most likely last post on Amish Stories. A lot of work was involved in her getting permission to be even able to write anything on the internet, and permission was given by her bishop. So please stop by and read about a woman who gave-up her car and other worldly possessions for the person that she loved. Richard from Amish Stories.

  17. Today I was noticing how much better my little George looks now that he finally seems to have gotten rid of all (most?) of his winter hair. They seem to look younger too lol

    I love the pic that is 3rd from the bottom :)
