Lorna Shutter 1/10/2009 6:15:24 PM

Who's speaking here, Kitty? ... You or the flower? In any case, I don't want to get old and wrinkled! Unfortunately, there's no way to reverse the aging process. Someone should invent an iron FOR SKIN that will just press our wrinkles away! Ha! Ha! :D
Beautiful, beautiful capture, Kitty! Love everything about it ... even the wrinkles! :) #7012705
