I'm glad I live with a woman's woman who takes care of herself.

Manicured hands sign with sureness. Colored lips are easier to read. Accented eyes are more expressive.

A retired college bookstore buyer, she continues to shop every day for fun and profit and considers me hopelessly handicapped because I leave the house on occasion to purchase one item at one store, buy it whether it's on sale or not, and come home pleased with myself.

She says gun shows don't count 'cause I never take cash or plastic, and once she liked a Charter Arms Chic Lady lefty revolver in light blue.
