Rageagainstmachine! :D i agree with your comment, because the same have applied to me! :D Funny thing i have another story on this very subject that occurred, yesterday actually! lol I had a compliment from a few "teenagers" lol :D <br />
Thank you for your commenting, my friend, :D You and i must be doing sopmething right then! lol :D

Oooh! that is a lovely compliment isn't it?? it's the same as my son and myself, people think we are "brother and sister". I think we are doing the right thing, we use umbrellas, hats, sunglasses and suncream in the hot weather and the heat of the sun,. :) Yes!! i agree that is the key to keeping some of the wrinkles away,. My friend is a "sun worshiper" she will sit out in the midday sun with!! (wait for this) baby oil plastered all over her, including her face and then wonders why she looks "old and wrinkled, her neck is like a "Turkey's" and she cannot understand why!! :( <br />
Thank you so much for commenting and sharing your story with me! :)

my son who is in elementary school is often confused as my brother. i get confused looks from other people and they compliment me how young i like. i think it's because i don't bake myself in the sun. if i have to go under the sun, i will use umbrellas, wear hats and sunglasses and that's one of the reason why i look youthful.
