That is great PAG!

I must be downright gorgeous!

I LOVE that blouse, PAG, it's just my style, too. And what a beautiful lady you are. Such nice things to hear from strangers on an elevator, that would have made my day, too!

Last thing that made me smile big was yesterday....it was my birthday and I spent it with my daughter and grandson - he's 3 and is just beginning to understand the concept of birthdays, and I got so many little grandson hugs.

One for you! Pag, that has to be one of the loveliest complements you will ever get. Niceness shines right through on some folks, and you are one of them.
