If you are short on mirrors, it would be the best to place them on the outer surface. Start around the outer edge and work in as far as the mirrors last.

More mirrors coming next week.

You'll find the older you get the fewer mirrors you need.

John Wells said...

I look in a mirror so seldom that when I do catch a glimpse of myself, I don't know who it is.

Sam Finn said...

Now and then I catch a glimpse of an old gray haired stranger in my mirror too! I'm beginning to think he might be the one that keeps hiding my needle nose pliers on me.

So funny Sam. But inside I know the young me. So sad outsiders might not see that. I have to remind myself what I am now. People comment on my young personality and voice. I might get a perverse thrill out of passing quickly past a mirror and not looking at it. When I take a selfie, I am getting more shocked at that wrinkled mostly white haired person, but my children have not commented on it. I will not get surgery because they are so flippant about it and younger girls have died from it here in San Antonio.

Someone complimented me recently. They said, "I bet you were really pretty when you were young."

The other evening 2 men flipped out their i-phones and quickly took my picture at an AA meeting after I had told them "no". But the photos turned out good on their less focused i-phones. They said I was pretty and they were going to post them on a dating site online so I could find a man. Well I was upset about all that (no picture taking in AA either because it is anonymous). Well, just for today and focus on what is really important.

Hey Margery -- Don't know if you are related to the same "Bills", but Barbara Eden has them in her background back in the early to middle 1800's. If so, you should have looked pretty good.

Did you consider something like this?

I did consider using a reflective Mylar...but lots of little mirrors looks cooler.

Undersaint said...

John, I think you looked better when you were working out brother......

Margery Bills said...

Janet, TY so much, but 100% I am not related.

Margery Bills said...

Janet, after I had my children, my younger children in those days said I looked like Brook Shields. (Maybe a little from the Calvin Klein jeans picture she did).

John Wells said...

I had a lunch date with Brook Shields in 1987.

Margery Bills said...

Ah, yes, the great past. Some people here have no reference point of anything I might tell them about something in my past. Sad. (Sometimes I feel like I might be a candidate for the nut house with the apparently far fetched past history of events. So mostly I stay quiet like a dumb amoeba or the fly on the wall paper-just a dumb turd). People cannot judge the mental capacity or background of someone who remains quiet, alone by the back wall. :-)

Margery Bills said...

When my children and I worked for Bob Dole, I met Mrs. Dole. We had similar hair styles and suits then. We looked at each other and said nothing. But I learned from this quiet experience. This quiet person was a brilliant lady who graduated 1st in her class from Harvard as a lawyer. Who knew.

Janet said...

How was your date John? I have read Brook is a very intelligent, educated person, but she says she was somewhat naive for years.

John Wells said...

It was fun to meet her...but uneventful. I only wish I had taken some photos. Strange that I didn't - being a photographer. Back in those days it was my day job and I never really thought about taking photos when I wasn't at work. Funny thing is...all these years later I am no longer a photographer, yet I take at least 10 photos a day.

Janet said...

No offense meant to Brook, but I would rather look at your photos of burros and bunnies. You are still a photographer -- you were born to it.
