Polar Opposites


The other day my husband pointed out the juxtaposition laying on our night stands.

On my side lays the book Breakthrough: 8 Steps to Wellness by Suzanne Somers. It explores cutting-edge science and delivers smart, proactive advice on the newest treatments for breakthrough health and longevity (Amazon.com).

And Suzanne looks like this:

My husband is reading Willie Nelson: An Epic Life by Joe Nick Patoski. It's a chronicle of Willie Nelson's life replete with exactly what you'd expect: honky-tonk, long nights on the open road, whiskey, womanizing and weed. (Amazon.com)

And Willie looks like this:

Granted, Willie's about 13 years older than Suzanne, but there's quite a difference in the "landscape", wouldn't you say?
Willie's got all those long nights, honky-tonks and bottles of whiskey coming back to bite him now.
And he's probably not into vitamins, oxygen wraps or fruit smoothies.
Or the thigh master.
I'm just sayin'....


Just Mom :

I heard about Somers's book and was actually a little curious about it. You'll need to share your thoughts on the book when you're done.

Just Mom :


LOL! re. the juxtaposition.

Nadine :

Too funny, but your points are quite valid. It's comes down to who do you want to look like?

Melissa @ Breath of Life :

Yeah, I'd be interested to know about the book, too.

Though I wonder...did Susanne's look come naturally? Just wondering if there's a scalpel or even an airbrush behind the scenes somewhere. If not...SIGN ME UP to read the book!

Lauren@Baseballs&Bows :

That's great! Looking at Willie makes me glad I am not the partying type! :)

Tonja :

Yeah I wonder if Suzanne had any surgical help, too! However, I did do one of her diets several years back and lost the most weight I ever had. In reading her diet books, she had some smart advice.

Ole Willie looks like he's had a rough life, all right.

aniowamom :

Willie looks a bit worn ... but I'm betting he's got a lot of great memories ...

I'm also betting he doesn't care what he looks like.


Momma Roar :

Just looking at the two pictures is hilarious - but to know that you each have one of them on your nightstand is really funny!

I passed an award your way - play along if you like!

Tammy :

Love it...and so true!

Dianne :

Well, "I'm just sayin'...' too! YUCK! :-)

Tickled Pink And Green :

Suzanne was on Hannity & Colmes the other night and her book sounds really interesting.

Don't get me started on the liberal Willie who won't even pay his taxes. Ugh.
