Please note ------- it is Peggi that had this done, NOT me:
"NOTE... I only mention this in case there are other ‘older’ ladies who sometimes winter in the Rio Grande Valley with a similar problem. I selfishly trying to show others how brave I was.
"My appearance or smile is slightly different but now when you meet me, I at least have a subtle upper lip outline. Would I do this again? You bet! FYI cost was $75.00 and all hygienic actions were taken. (with fill-in colour included, cost is slightly over the $100.) I look at this slight modification as simply a necessary evil to getting older. Not everyone is affected the same way but very few of us are even close to perfect. “
When I asked Peggi's permission to copy and paste this, she agreed and sent me these pictures, of before and after.
I checked with our little private weather station across the road, Squirrel Tree Ranch, Willis, Texas (PWS) on Weather Underground, and it also said that there would be NO wind this morning.
As Jay wanted to work, I drove down to get him. We strung water hoses out there, and wet down around the pile before lighting it.
After trying out some 8 O’Clock Colombian coffee that I bought yesterday, (voted A+), we raked front, back and side yards, burning all the old pine needles, and piling more and more on the fire until they were all gone. One way to get exercise!
The whole place looks a lot better today.
