I am wondering why so many people have tattoos. I see them on grown,mature women. I see it a lot on kids. As I was having this thought, my teen age neighbor came over to show me her new Tatt., on her upper arm. Hey kid, You do know that for the most part,it is permanent? The tattoos look dirty to me. Not clear, but with lines that have spread or washed out. I don't find it attractive. I guess I am old fashioned about some things. I might put this out ..Jews and other 'Undesirables" were tattooed with numbers in concentration camps. I had read of a Grandchild who tattooed his Grandmothers number on his arm to Honor her. I can understand this. There was a purpose and reason. But having tattoos over every available bit of skin, bothers me. My neighbors tatt said "Love to Love". A nice sentiment, but you don't have to wear your heart on your sleeve, kid.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
