Guess my tastes have changed as I get older

I am watching Gilligan's Island reruns with my 10 year old daughter. It is funny how she values watching them as a reward for getting her homework done. Anyway, I can recall watching these as a youth, when they were not reruns, and preferring Mary Ann. These days Ginger definitely comes out on top (pun intended). Mrs. Howell still does not do it for me though.

Mary Ann did more cooking than the other two women put together and looked to be pretty pleasant for kissing, cuddling and other activities as well. Mary Ann also didn't have the inflated ego the other two women had.

Things change. In my younger days, I concentrated my efforts on blondes.

For the past several years , brunettes have been turning my head (anybody up on Jenya D >?).

Even in real real life it's mostly fantasy...

My old Gunny taught me to carry a sack to put over their head,,, we called it a "gunny sack" ,,, and you could cut eye holes in it for covert deployment or a really bad hair day and sneakin' up on folks in general.
You could put it on backwards if you needed to delude yourself,,, as time goes by.

Sarge,,,take another look at that face I'd bet a dollar she's had at least a couple chin tucks and botox in the lips. Meg Ryan and Mickey Rourke are barely recognizable. That's Hollywood !
Robert Forrester has was very handsome in his younger day and has left his face alone. He fit his roles in "Jackie Brown' and recently in "Breaking Bad". He keeps fit, and by my mark he still looks good.

I cast no stones, just calling them like I see them. The real point is how a person sees themselves. Over the last couple years I have grudgingly had to admit I'm no longer considerered for leading man roles, (but i'm still pretty,,)

Do four "half-smoked" joints equal two joints?

She smoked two joints before she smoked two joints, and then she smoked two more...


Quote:
Gilligan's Island star Dawn Wells, who played the role of Mary Ann on the 1960s sitcom, posed for the below Teton County, Idaho mug shots after pleading guilty in February 2008 to one count of reckless driving. Wells, 69, was arrested in October after cops allegedly observed her car swerving and speeding up and slowing down repeatedly. A search of her vehicle revealed two small cases used to store marijuana as well as four half-smoked joints. As part of her plea deal, Wells was sentenced to five days in jail, six months probation, and fined $410.50

I read that "Ginger or Mary Ann" is being used as a psychological question as an insight into a males character.

There comes a time in every woman's life when they should recognize that they have reached the far side of "young and beautiful," and begin to dress and act like it.

Many men are almost as bad.

I certainly know that I am not twenty anymore---, I do stay fit and don't use make-up, save for eyeliner when I have a special occasion. No cutt'n or botox on my face, as I could not imagine going thru that on purpose. I had a bad car accident in my youth and had over 100 stiches on the side of my face and nose, cut lip to jaw.
A year later I did go to a "plastic surgen" to get some of the railroad tracks smoothed out.
He basicaly numbed my face up and proceded to grind my skin off- NOT PLEASENT.
I did end up with much smoother skin and the scars are not nearly as noticeable.

There can be a grace in aging, I will not color my hints of grey around the edges, as it ,to me, signifies my status as one who has been wise nuff to make it this long.
I see women that look like ginger does now, down in L-burg near the greenbrier, when they walk iin groups of three to five -shopping in the art galeries and boutiques.
It is sad. They are probably wearing a thousand dollars "worth" of shoes, slacks and blouses, accompanied with $100,000.00 or so in jewelrey , trying to look twenty.Skinny, dried up, puffed up, brest implanted,botoxed , painted up , used barbie dolls, who could not survive in the real world for ten minutes.

I guess I'm just always gonna be a country bumpkin.
