I have a headache.

And the bright, Fallish, background I had in here before wasn't helping it much so I decided to change things up a bit,,again. This one's easier on the eyes, don'cha think? I intend to spiff things up with some graphics someday too but I haven't been of a mind to try to figure out how to do that in this format yet. The differences in this template and the other one, that I'd had for a couple of years, is enough that it's like a new foreign language to me and I ain't never been good at no "furrin" languages.

Sometimes I reckon I've got a bit of the racoon or raven in me that causes the occasional, spontaneous urges I get for bright colors and "flowerdy" britches. (I have 1 pair of those britches and my kids just hate em.) And sometimes I have this yearning for a friend who'd wear red and purple with me so I could become an honest member of the Red Hat Society and not have to go at in solo. I know, in my heart, I'da been one of those saloon floozies if I'da been born back in the days of the wild west.


Red and Purple

Grandma's getting older and her eyes are getting dim
Her random access memory, is half of what its been.
When Saint Peter comes to call someday, She'll say I cant go yet.
He'll have to wait for Grandma, cause she's surfing on the net.

Hey girl, LOL! Surfs up! I always wanted a red valvet suit! I did get me a red suit in Chicago sort of a red & white tweed! Have a good sunday girl!

Saloon Floozies ruled the West.

I will wear a red hat with ya

OH MI GOSH!! I had no idea you were a fellow 'red hat lady'! I have a purple shirt with a red hat on it, I have a purple dress with a red hat on it and ....yes... I have a RED HAT! Mind you NO ONE will go anywhere with me if I put it on, so I usually just wear it in the yard. And even that tends to annoy 'some' folks.
I love my comfy red hat purple dress. You can find me blogging away in it on any given day!
I don't have any 'flowerdy' pants but I do have a couple pair of 'checkered' ones. I don't wear them in public either! ;)

I don't care I'll wear the red hat and purple dress with you so how about it. I just looked at your pictures and remembered, please save me some seeds from your morning glory this year. I forgot who it was that I had told I wanted some when I first started blogging until I just saw your pictures again. Beautiful it is.

Brenda said...

I'll go out tomorrow Miz Victoria and save some of them, they're starting to seed some now.

Love the poem and the body shape looks familiar on the red hat lady.,.. oh, that looks like my butt and hips! I have a red hat, but when I put it on my whole face looks red. I prefer to wear a purple hat with a red band or feather. I would have been the mother hen in the saloon. The men back then loved their women with a little meat on their bones. I would have fit right in. What do you think would happen if we opened one now? LOL!

I am not a memeber of the Red Hats, but it's just a time factor thing that I am not. Our local chapter has a ball and do many, many things.

I would say you would have ruled the roost at the saloon!! It would be neat to step back in time for a short stay, huh?

Nice colours. Like the hat!

David said...

Flowery britches? Yuck. LOL

The new look is fine by me.
