    that’s a bit like the problem I have, not gender related though…people can’t believe I’ve got a Gold card, as I don’t look old enough…

    I used to get annoyed with that, but now I feel it’s compliment!

    I often think I am looking old enough, and a good % of the time, I feel pretty old – okay not terribly old, but old enough to be entitled to it all….

      Yes, take it as a compliment. I had a friend once whose favorite saying was, “I’ll take that as a compliment!” No one ever tried to put him down because it would have been pointless.

    ohmygosh! LOLOL!
    neither one of my grandmothers would have been caught dead in “gentlemen’s trousers.” they always wore a dress. even to garden in.
    and do housework.
    and I haven’t had a dress on in years now. even gave all my sundresses away!
    and I did love them. but for comfort you just can’t beat pants! 🙂
    I just love pickles.

      Years ago I wore shirtwaist dresses and sensible shoes and bobby socks. Andy really liked it, but enough guys would look at my shoes signaling disapproval so I eventually switched to slacks and tops. Not quite as nice looking, but easier and more comfortable for me. 🙂

    I need pockets. Not many dresses have pockets. It can even be hard to find women’s slacks that have pockets. Nowadays, I mostly wear yoga pants. That have pockets.

      I agree with you about pockets. My pants have them and around the house I wear shirts with two pockets for my different glasses. I spend a lot less time looking for them now. Hurray for practical clothes!
