Default NSV...all the way from Iraq!

Wow...I was talking to my son Jay, who is stationed in Iraq when one of his buddies asked to talk to me. He introduced himself as Cpl. Giles and I waited for the "Your son is a great Marine" speech....so imagine my shock when he said "I just wanted to tell you ma'am that you are extremely attractive and you look really young - I couldn't believe it when (my son) told me you were his mother". Trust me -- 8 months ago when I was at Jay's boot camp graduation, no one was telling me I was "extremely attractive" or anything even close to that! Talk about an ego boost -- that made my whole week!

(PS: The picture of me was taken from about the knees up -- another NSV for the girl who wouldn't allow a picture below her shoulders for the past 3 or 4 years!)

Very nice!!! That IS a lovely compliment. But then again you do look marvelous, simply marvelous. But it's always nice to hear, especially from a young man! I bet you were real glad to speak with your son.
