Six Word Saturday

my Six Words (4):

forty-nine inch legged young lady

ZZ Top recording "She's got legs"**

These two have what in common?

They are both from Houston, Texas

The young lady is 6 feet 4.  Her 49 inch legs, from thigh to toe, may set a world record.  For sure for Houston they did and probably are a record in Texas also.  Things are bigger in Texas. 

For sure too she would intimidate me if we were alone in an elevator.  Ladies taller than I am worry me.
At the right above is Mrs. Jim's simple table setting.  The white bowls are for her homemade chicken with cheese tortellini and spinach soup.  It was really good.  The eight of us, assembled at our home for a night of Texas 42, played with dominoes, left just a couple of bowls, perfect for us two for lunch left overs.  She is still in her boot, but now she can use it for a walking boot.  It comes off Friday the 28th.

bonus Six Words:

What brand was
your first cigarette?

Mine was Chesterfield regular length.  This 1962 ad was for the king size but they hadn't been invented back when I was someplace between the seventh grade and a freshman in high school.

I "found" a whole pack and smoked all but two of them.  Sister, Lois (link), and I went down to the creek to play and to smoke.  She had two but they made her sick.  She has never smoked since.

The ad was in the December 1962 issue of Popular Science Magazine on the Inside Front Cover page.

I smoked in earnest when was in the 10 grade.  By then Herbert Tarrington's were out, king size so that was what I smoked.  Finally in the early 1980's I stopped smoking.  By then I was smoking a pipe until my lip had a permanent sore.  So I switched to chewing tobacco and dipping snuff.  Those fixed my nicotine desire but were nasty.  Because they were nasty I stopped using tobacco at all.

ZZ Top song, first verse:

She's got legs, she knows how to use them.
She never begs, she knows how to choose them.
She's holdin' leg wonderin' how to feel them.
Would you get behind them if you could only find them?
She's my baby, she's my baby,
yeah, it's alright.

Bet Mrs. Jim can't wait to get her legs back! Thanks for the smile, Jim. Beautiful table setting. She's a talented lass, your lady.
That table setting is lovely - I had assumed it was a picture from a magazine! I have never smoked, so no first brand of cigarette for me.
I think there are more advantages being short- you can always ask a tall young handsome man to fetch something from a high shelf in the supermarket.
I started smoking at 18 and gave it up at 38, and haven't smoked now for 28 years, so I think my lungs are clear again. Bah humbug, disgusting habit!!
Happy SWS dear friend.
Yes, those legs of ours are so important. I'm happy to say that mine aren't this long! Wow... she is a tower of long legged beauty!
Jim! Your dining room table looks so beautiful....glod to hear Mrs Jim continues to get better! and glad to hear you quit tobacco ....dangerous stuff! Have a great weekend! Cheers!
Never smoked and even though I married a smoker I got him to quit. Fortunately none of my children smoke. Hopefully none of my grandchildren will either.
You have one talented Mrs. that table looks great! I'm glad you quit smoking. Those are some long legs! Happy Saturday!
Let;s see - that woman had the longest legs I had ever seen! And Mrs. Jim sure sets a beautiful table. I know she will be excited to have her cast off.
I got stuck on the table and the soup. Sounds wonderful.

I don't remember what I smoked first. I quit long ago too. It is a nasty habit that does nothing good health wise.

Have a fabulous day. :)
Glad to hear Mrs. Jim is getting better, and that you quit your tobacco habit. Choosing to improve your health is always better.
the 28th is right around the corner.. Mrs. Jim is in the home stretch….hopefully everyday is a little better
Legs. Food. Cigarettes.

Mrs Jim's homemade chicken with cheese tortellini and spinach soup should be very yummy :) Take care, Mrs Jim.
