My How Times Have Changed
Tattoos used to be mostly worn by sailors, motorcycle riders, or wild women. Last week we were pushing our grocery cart behind a lady with lots of tattoos that were very visable with the dress she had on which was in good taste. She was wearing backless platform shoes. To our amazement she slid right off those shoes and on to her knees still holding on to her grocery cart. John ran to help her and it was evident she was in pain but she took it well. We stood and talked about the shoes and I showed her my tennies and said I could never wear anything but these. I even wear these to church and they don't judge. She went on to ask where our church is as she doesn't have a church. She said she may look it up sometime. We didn't go last Sunday so if she showed up I hope they didn't disappoint her or me if all her tattoos were showing. She was not a young woman but not as old as us. Not really the type you would think of as having so many tattoos but as I say times have changed. If I was younger I might even get a small flower or butterfly on my ankle or shoulder. Don't think it would be attractive on swollen ankles or old age arms so I'll pass. Hope I see her in church Sunday.
