Beauty Tips

My mother was always very good about giving my sisters and I beauty and longevity tips:

1. Always wear a good moisturizer with sunscreen in it. Don't forget your neck. (You can always tell a woman's age by her neck and hands.)
2. Always wash your face last thing in the evening, first thing in the morning.
3. Splash water to rinse. Pat, don't rub, dry.
4. Always take your calcium.

And so on. Very practical tips.

I thought I should also record the beauty tips I share with my daughters from time to time.

1. If you smell horse pee, it's probably you. Take a shower.
2. Don't walk in the chicken coop barefoot. Chicken sh*t is hard to get off your toes.
3. If you are going to wear a dress or skirt, you should probably scrub the manure off of your ankles.
4. If you are wearing sandles, toenail polish will cover the dirt under your toenails.
5. Wash your hair frequently to avoid blemishes, and to check for ticks, burrs and so on.
6. If you want to live a long time, don't stand behind a horse.

And so on. As you can see, there is a generational difference.

Yay Cathy! I can so relate!!!!!!

I've got one who is so used to spitting (we spend so much time at the farm with the horses, and now, goats) that she forgot yesterday that we were actually in our HOME.

I gave her grace, but the look on my face let her know that it better not happen again..........
