Anyone ever been to Crown Hill Cemetry? The highest point in Indianapolis is there.

James Whitcomb Riley is buried at the highest point along with 2 other shrines to people I don't know. The view of downtown is unmatched!

I took some great pictures from that perch high above the city (and around the grounds too). Here are a few of the shots.

On to a more pleasant subject......

Went to the Indianapolis Art Museum today. Got some great shots! Here are a few.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is what happens when an eyebrow waxing goes terribly wrong!!

If you have a weak stomach .... this may just gross you out. Sorry about the poor quality. I couldn't take the picture and focus on the eyebrow abscess at the same time. These are about as good as it gets.

Anyone want to hear my eyebrow waxing horror story?

Ok, Ok, I know some of you know the beginning of the tail.....for the slow people I'll start at the beginning.

Get my eyebrows waxed (as I always do) about 12 weeks ago. She pinches me with the eyebrown wax "roller-on-er". OUCH, I think to myself but think nothing more of it.

Later, I notice a small bump - tiny I'd say in comparision of what's to come. I look at the bump and think to myself - great a zit.

The zit never comes - and the bump doesn't go away or come to a head. Next thing I know, I have a knot above my eyebrow. And it's getting bigger all the time!

So about 4 weeks go by. The knot is there. It hurts. It's BIG. I'm sick of it. I visit my general doctor - who at this point probably thinks I'm nuts for coming to see her with a bump on an eyebrow. So what? It hurt dang it and it was way too close to my eye and brain for my comfort.

She says it's a sack of blood. GROSS, I'm thinking silently. The Doc says - "It'll disolve on it's own...give it time." So patient as I am, I wait .... and I wait. And I wait. Still the bump is there - and dare I say it's getting bigger - not smaller.

Now - TWELVE stinkin' weeks after the "alleged" incident...this sucker is killing me. I mean I have an extremely high tolerance for pain but this sucker about knocks me off my feet.

That was Monday. I've got to go to a dermatologist - so I convince myself & make the appointment. I see him on Wednesday this week.

He comes in. Looks at the now boil like object above my eyebrow and says with a horrified look on his face.....that's an abscess and it's so infected I won't touch it today. You need the strongest antibiotic and you need alot of it. So take 3 of these 500 mil. pills every day and come back to see me on Monday.

Thank God I went. The bump, that turned into a lump, that turned into a boil like object that turned into an eraser sized puss volcano finally erupted yesterday.

It's fair to say it was probably the most disgusting thing that ever happened to me to date - in all my 40 years. I mean, other than me, who do you know that's ever had a face abscess?

So girls the moral of this story is....there really is a high price to beauty & Beauty is more than skin deep.

My advice to you? Tweeze. Don't wax.

I can prove damages. I sure had pain and suffering. And I have 3 Doctor bills to prove I have expenses.

Girls.......I ask you, is this the get rich quick scheme I've been waiting for all of my life?

Should I call Keller and Keller? Vaughn Wamsley? Roni Deutch?

Your input will be invaluable as always!!

P.S. I have pictures of the puss ball on my face - if you'd like to see them, let me know, I'll post them here

How cool is that?

Ok girls. It's up to us to decide....

What are we going to do about Christmas? Grammy is super stressed out at the thought of having Christmas at her house. She can't stand the commotion and the crowd makes her nervous. She doesn't enjoy herself and darn it, she's too old to stress out and not have fun.

We can't think about what's best for us we have to think about what's best for her.

What do we do? Should we rent a place?
