Think Pink

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  It is a serious topic.  My Grandma had both breasts “radically” removed just a year before she died in 1971 at the age of 59.  But I have had a lot of friends send me funny reminders to have my “mammies-grammied” these past few weeks!  Humor helps.

 We’ve come a long way, baby.  So-laugh.  But be wise, too.

Ah, memories…here and here

UPDATE 10.24.08 – I had Stormie give me the “censor box” so I could go back to my PG-13 rating. :)

  1. I was thinking. If men had to get thier sensitive parts crushed by a machine for an exam they would redesign it or improve it. I worked for a company that made ultrasound equipment in the 80’s we were working on a breast scanner that the women would lay on with thier breasts suspended into a warm tub of water. I wonder why someone hasn’t developed something like that yet?

  2. Hmmm…that is interesting, Bry. Maybe they could even pair said mammary-floater with a massage and women would be lining up for it! Ha!

    I “censored” because my grown girls were mortified at that cartoon. And I didn’t want to make anyone blush! :) Just a friendly reminder to stay healthy!
