GOOD GOD!!! As a woman, I look like a former Fox News Talking Head who was FIRED after a feud with Donald Trump -- and NOTHING like my sisters or other female relatives -- HA!!!
This was morphed from this ten-year-old photo of me when I was only 57 years old:
Brett Webb-Mitchell, my friend who was ordained a Presbyterian Minister, but is now ALSO high in the United Methodist Church, as Brett put it, "bringing the Love of Jesus Christ to Methodists".
Well HERE is one water slide:
Back in MY day, The Doors recorded a song about this -- linked to in comments:
>>> WELL, HERE'S THE AFTERMATH OF LAST NIGHT'S PARTY IN MY BACK YARD:
About two dozen straight people showed up, ages about 20 - 24, and there was a long table to the left TOTALLY covered with beer bottles and cups used for Bourbon mixed or straight.
Everyone showed up right after 5:00 PM, and while I did not expect them to be so thrilled with the water slide for much more than an HOUR, these guys (and I mean especially the males), could NOT GET ENOUGH OF IT!!!
They were yelling and screaming and running races as alcohol drinking games until I went to bed about 12:30 (and slept soundly through the rest of it). MOST of that was the MEN, who went down together in groups of two or more. Many looked like Ryan Lee Burris's (local Cape Fear Equality Leader and former 3rd Vice Chair of New Hanover County Democratic Party), new boyfriend, Joe Allred:

Others were more to MY taste:
But I just enjoyed the eye-candy occasionally when I went out on my deck to smoke a fag.
THEN, I got it -- I understood!!! Some guy called out loudly (but not so loud that most heard him):
"I'm NOT GAY!!! Really, I'm not."
And THAT is why God invented Alcohol, Marijuana, and Water Slides (and other slippery wet activities that all men like so much) -- to GROPE EACH OTHER even in front of their WOMEN FOLK -- LOL!!!
Well after raining every day for over two weeks here in Wilmington, it did NOT rain today.
WHO KNOWS what ELSE might have happened!!!
Remember this -- the Mexican Blogging Machine I wanted to buy in Villanueva, Mexico in 2012 to drive back to use to BLOG IN WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA???
It was NOT JUST because I had dated Mexico's Consul to Atlanta in 1983 -- Villanueva (Newhouse), being one of his two surnames:
I wanted to honor some KICK-ASS WOMEN as well (and would have added a sidecar):
