A Yeehaw for Y'all!

So, at 59, I'm not wearing a bikini this summer. Not even a two-piece. In fact, I haven't worn my one-piece in 7 years. Yes. Yes, I'm serious. No interest. At all. (Believe me--I'm doing the world a HUGE favor.) I do own a few pair of shorts. Only wear them in the privacy of my own home or on walks to our gate with My Sweet Hubby and Teddy Buddy Boo Bear. (They don't seem to mind my pale, chubby, veiny, cottage-cheese legs.) Capris, however, are my summer wardrobe necessity. I wear them almost every day from May 1st until the end of October. Sooo...my legs have to be shaved at least 6 inches above my ankles. Teeheehee.

For more than half my life, I used bath soap to shave. I did decide, about 20 years ago, I deserved to buy myself a shave gel/lotion. I think back then a can might have cost $1.50. I quit buying the cans when a couple of them got rust on our tubs/showers. That really annoyed me.

About 6 months ago, I discovered Pure Silk. I have no idea why I got the urge to buy it or how long it's been around. It's not expensive (maybe $3?). Comes in at least 3 "flavors," maybe more. BEST OF ALL? It has a rust-proof bottom. Thank you, Pure Silk Peeps. Thank you very much.


Go ahead: If I think I'm worth the cost of special shaving gel for my old, unattractive legs, you are, too!
