Flash 55 Friday - Another Year Older and Deeper in Debt - October 1, 2010

Flash 55 Friday - Another Year Older and Deeper in Debt - October 1, 2010

I'm looking at the wrinkle creams,
And frowning at their price,
Those within my budget,
Really promise nothing nice.

My hair is turning grayer,
And I've gained a pound or two,
But Sunday I'll be sixty-six,
So what's a girl to do?

I think I'll have a cheer,
I made it through another year!
