published

Published, yes, but not in quite the way you might be imagining the scenario.


Not many of you are JP Magazine readers I'm sure. I'm not either, but Gordon surely is. And one Sunday morning a few months back, as we were sitting in the Living Room drinking a cup of coffee in our favorite chairs in front of the fireplace, he tells me that he just e-mailed a photo of me and his Jeep to JP magazine. Conversation ensues. And I tell him that they'll never publish a photo of someone as old as me, fully clothed, in that magazine. They're looking for really cute, young chicks. 


He receives an e-mail, within days, telling him that the photo will be used for publication. I quickly told him that they were just being kind to him by telling him that and that I still firmly believed they would not publish my photo. And anyway, he didn't ask me if he could submit my photo as it was. Hmph.


I don't think I've heard Gordon laugh quite as loudly as the other day when he "ran" out the kitchen door to tell me that I was a JP Chix {translation: Jeep Chicks}! Still didn't believe him, if you want to know. That's me and the blue Jeep on the left in nearly the same spot as when I took these weekend wildflower walk photos a few weeks ago.


I will add that Papa got a real kick out of seeing me in the magazine, when Gordon felt the need to show it to him. So I have been proven wrong, again, by my quite handsome, and quite right, Mr. wRight! Not the first time, I will tell you. He does get bonus points for submitting such a sweet bio to go along with the photo, though. Okay, lots of bonus points.

So the next time you are in your local bookstore, check out the latest issue of JP Magazine and flip to the very last page, that's where you'll find me. Now, you can tell all your friends and they can have a good laugh about it, too! By the way, Gordon just felt this was a wonderful topic to blog about and has been asking me each day if I have blogged about it yet.

Sweetie...here's your blog post. And it's probably the only one you've read this year. I Love You!
