There's something for everyone

So, I was at the library this morning. I got there a few minutes before it opened and found quite a crowd. Who knew that this many people had urgent business at the library on a Saturday morning? Anyway, I noticed an older woman (80+), step in the building just before the doors opened. She was wearing a nice navy mu-mu type dress, and some comfy shoes (SAS, I'm sure). She smiled at me and I smiled back. As I was checking on the computer to see if they had my book, I noticed her out of the corner of my eye, looking through some paperbacks. She picked up 3 or 4 of them, then headed for the check out. After she had walked away I glanced up at the labeled portion of the paperback holder. What did it say you ask? Romance.

Steph, (I tried to find a bigger picture, but this is the only one that was jpeg.) Anyway, the young girl is looking over her shoulder (away from you), the old womans mouth is a choker necklace, and the old womans nose is her jaw line

I always see the younger woman first. I wonder what the lady from the library sees.

For us males out here, can you explain what a mu-mu type dress is? Does it have anything to do with cows? Just wondering.

I always see the old lady. I love it that she has a huge schnoz. :-)

Two blogs in one week--wow! :-)

I had a great-aunt that passed away, and I didn't know who they were talking about for a long time, because we had only ever called her Aunt Mu-Mu.

My grandma LOVES the trashy romance. I lived with her for a semester in college and, when I couldn't sleep, would raid the library. My choices were Fabio or Neal A Maxwell.

Fabio and Neal A. Maxwell, side by side!! (only in Grandma's library.)

I see the old lady. Does that mean I am a pessimist? Cause I am really not.
I really hate that picture, it gives me the creeps.
Arrrrgh and I hate Saturdays too.
