Well, it's the weekend for the Miss Meridian Pageant. I only found that out about an hour ago! I didn't even know that we still had that pageant. Yet, it was HUUUGGGEEE way back when...well, when I was in it! It was so long ago that Moses was the emcee. In fact, when I was in it, we had to have the dreaded bathing suit competition. It was so long ago, that I actually had a figure and didn't mind wearing the white, one piece suit with the modesty panel (remember those? if you don't, don't ask).. and the pointy little boobie cups. It was so long ago that there was very little of ME in those little pointy things! 45 years later, Madonna wears the same looking thing out on stage and makes megabucks!..but I digress. Anyway, tomorrow night 5 young women will be competing for the "crown" (heck, they may give an ipod now instead of a crown).. I'm telling you, it was a lonnngggg time ago since I was on that stage. At any rate, whomever the winner is, she gets to go on to the Miss Mississippi Pageant in Vicksburg. when she gets there, though, many things will be the same: she'll be nervous, scared and shaking, her parents will be prouder than than the winning pig at the county fair and she'll still be wearing a bathing suit in front of a gazillion people. One thing, however, will definitely be different... she won't be sportin' no pointy little boobies looking like two weapons of mass destruction. Good luck girls!
A touch about me:....Life is a hoot and worth living to the fullest. That's not to say it doesn't have its share of bumps...it certainly does, but as a counselor, I know the value of talk therapy and, as a woman, I know the value of friends. I'm a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a child of God. I have balance. I'm still young enough to have fun but old enough to not need the social pretenses that comes with the days of young wifehood. I'm free! My prayer is that my family stays healthy, I improve the world each day, and that I arrive wherever I'm going wearing shoes that match! Join me...share with me...let's have fun! Love, Sidney
