MY LONG-TALL-SALLY-LEGS.

THIS MORNING, AFTER COMPLETING ANOTHER LONG HIKE WITH BIG-DOG-CUBBY-DOG, I DECIDED TO SAY "THANK YOU" TO MY LEGS-- AGAIN-- BY SHARING MY THOUGHTS FROM SEPTEMBER OF LAST YEAR:

"YES...LEGS! MY LONG-TALL-SALLY-LEGS!

IT'S TIME TO SHARE HOW PROUD I AM---AND WILL ALWAYS BE---OF MY ALMOST-- EIGHTY YEAR-OLD LEGS.

I LOVE AND RESPECT MY LEGS FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS.  PERHAPS YOU'll THINK I'M BRAGGING AND... MAYBE I AM BUT ....AFTER BEING CALLED "BIRD LEGS" FROM AN EARLY AGE, I HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO BE PROUD OF THE MANY ACCOMPLISHMENTS MADE BY  MY FEARLESS LEGS.

I'M PROUD TO TELL THE WORLD HOW MY LEGS CARRIED ME FROM THE STAGE OF THE MISS PINE BLUFF PAGEANT.... TO THE STAGE OF THE MISS ARKANSAS PAGEANT...AND ALL THE WAY TO THE MISS AMERICA STAGE!

BEST OF ALL...I WAS EXTREMELY HONORED WHEN THE INTERNATIONAL PRESS VOTED MY LEGS: THE-BEST-LOOKING-LEGS AT THE 1958 MISS AMERICA PAGEANT.

I'VE DEPENDED ON MY LEGS,  ALL MY LIFE; I'VE PUT EXTREME PRESSURE, INTENSE STRESS, AND LOTS OF WEAR/TEAR ON MY TWO LONG LEGS BUT...THEY'VE NEVER FAILED ME. I HAVE EVERY REASON TO ADMIRE AND RESPECT MY PRICELESS LEGS. 

AS FIFTY YEAR OLD LEGS, MY LEGS SPENT ALMOST SEVEN MONTHS---CARRYING ME UP AND DOWN SOME OF THE TALLEST MOUNTAINS IN ASIA. MOST REMARKABLE, MY LEGS BECAME THE FIRST PAIR OF LEGS TO TRAVEL THE LENGTH OF THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA!

MY LEGS ARE CONSIDERABLY OLDER NOW. THEY HAVE A FEW SCARS, MORE THAN A FEW BROKEN CAPILLARIES FROM YEARS OF STRESS AND EXTREME ACTIVITIES--YET-- MY LEGS REMAIN STRONG.  I'VE NEVER HAD TO WORRY ABOUT CELLULITE OR "DIMPLES" OR KNEE REPLACEMENTS.  IN ALL MY YEARS...MY LEGS HAVE REMAINED FAITHFUL...REGARDLESS OF THE CHALLENGE.

AND....MY LEGS ALWAYS TAKE ME WITH THEM. TOGETHER, WE'VE TRAVELED ENDLESS MILES AND...EVEN NOW... WE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER--EACH STEP OF THE WAY."

Simply,
Sally
