Everyone who is older wants to look younger. The number of products available is astronomical. It is a wonder that they all stay in business. There are lotions and potions, supplements, exercises and various products that only a licensed physician can provide. Those include Botox, face lifts, light therapy and more. The number of ads for this is staggering. If it wasn’t for the older generation, many of these companies would be out of business. People who abuse themselves their entire lives with drinking, smoking, lack of exercise, eating fast food, high caloric intakes on a daily basis, are the ones who once they discover they are going to die if they don’t change their ways, are their best customers. Too little too late is usually the case. However, while they are trying to hold onto life, they will spend any amount of money, do anything and try anything to make themselves well again and look younger. The hair loss industry loves this as well. Everyday I see adverts for thinning hair, going bald, losing hair, etc. The amount of money spent to save a person’s hair is enough to feed a family of three for a week. Sure we all want to look younger as we age but if you abused yourself your entire life, unless you have large sums of money for plastic surgery and are willing to give up your old ways, it is never going to happen. Not that this has anything to do with the Good Gus series, it’s just that once again today older women are showing off on internet their bikinis just to prove they do look younger. The series can be found online at Kindle with a few books on Nook and Waterstones. “Misplaced Trust” does have characters, particularly females, who wish to look younger, but the younger men come along to steal all their money and for a brief period they do believe the are younger and beautiful. The book is available online at 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino.
When I was younger, if you even considered taking what is now termed as a selfie you would be called conceited. When you skim the internet news, instead of important events, there are articles about older women in bikinis, extremely skimpy clothes and even Madonna showing her bare chest. Seriously, there are important events in the world today. Yet these women are so conceited that they have to show their physiques. Is it to be noticed? Where are all the rules of decency gone? It’s easy to understand that women are proud of their figures, and many show off in dresses and appropriate attire. It has to be the conceited women who need to be noticed and possibly seeking approval. Other women, myself included, do not care how they look. We care how we look and our families’ appearances. In high school the conceited boys and girls were ignored. The phrase at the time was, “They are full of themselves.” They probably were but in retrospect no one really cared. The dictionary definition is having an excessively favorable opinion of one’s abilities, appearance, etc. There you go. In the Good Gus series, Bad Bart, book one, “Pecos Meets Bad Bart,” arrives in town and is quite conceited. He thinks because he wants something, he should receive it. He also believed it should be handed to him instantly. As we all know, Sheriff Gus solved the problem in a positive manner without anger. The series is online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
