Hot Legs

Once upon a time I had hot legs. My husband was crazy about my long lean legs. (I am 5'8 and my inseam is a 33). I like to think I lured Sergio with my mini skirts and heels. It was the eighties!
This photo was taken many years ago. Framed and sat at our bar for years. It was a gift for his 30th birthday. I was 25 and BP (before pregnancies). He loved it. But I will never forget, what he said:
"Honey, one day when you are old, you will be glad you had this made! You will look at this and remember, you use to have Hot Legs!"
It kind of pissed me off. What do you mean one day when I am old? And what makes you think I wont always have hot legs??
I am old now. I don't have hot legs anymore. They got fat, I have spider veins, and the are ugly now.
I saw this picture alittle bit earlier this evening. I remembered what he said. And I am glad I had the picture taken.

Jan, I don't believe your legs are ugly!! No way and you have aged very well!! Things do change and I think gracefully is a good way to do that...however, I still believe you look awesome!! Love you!!

Wow, that little red number. A gentle warning: Do not be afraid when you wake up one morning on your back to find that your boobs has vanished through the night. When you sit up you will find that they have just gone into hiding in your armpits (lol). Growing old is not for sissies.

Well from what I've seen of you here on the blog in photos - you are still GORGEOUS!!!

But that is SOME photo - wow girl!!! :-)

I never had legs like that, but I made use of the ones I do have. I'm 5'6" with short legs, but I was always told they were cute and I too wore the short skirts and heels, lol.

You have some really fun blogs, lol.
