Wishing the sun will stay out for the Steeplechase. Good luck, Good Night Shirt because if he wins, it will be his 3rd year in a row.
They have eaten and gone on their way. The last two days I have not seen any Rose Breasted Grosbeaks.

Kitty in her hat at the last Art Ventures meeting. I could wear this today but not the shoes I had on. Rubber boots would be the ticket today. Which would only make the hat look silly. I have never been to the Steeplechase but my hats would fit right in. Of course, I would photo all the handsome horses but as for the race, I prefer something with a BIG ENGINE. However, I would have the most fun doing one of my favorite pastimes when I am among a crowd. "PEOPLE WATCH."
I really think most of the folks are interested in the partying and hat and outfit show. All those ladies who have planned their outfits will really have to rethink the head gear and foot attire. Those high heels would mire up in and hold them in place or maybe they will just carry the shoes in their hand to show.
The Kitty Justice is that it just might be a good day for the chase after all.

Lady Di,

Love the photo of the rose breasted grosbeaks. They are so pretty.

You hat is lovely. I miss those wide-brimmed hats. Not many people wear hats these days.

Happy Mother's Day, my friend.

Thanks. I have always liked hats and now I choose to wear them when I go out to eat and Church. I would love to bring back the more formal attire rather than the comfortable sludge everyone wears now. Yes, I have been guilty of going out comfortable but would rather dress up.
I hope you had a nice Mother's Day too. Peace

Glad your back and I hope your trip was a fun one. Irises are TN. state flower which makes them little more special to me. I would gladly share. Peace

People watching is the greatest!! And you could wear the boots with the hat--you would be making a foul weather fashion statement and setting a fashion trend and being peopled watched yourself. Whew--that was a long sentence.
I came home--somewhat reluctantly--but I am here. I had fun traipsing around .
Your Iris are beautiful. MB

Dear Dianne ~~ Lovely birds and your hat is terrific. What a lot of rain we have had under 2 inches all year.
I am quite over my fall, it was indoors and on carpet, it was the getting up that made it memorable.
I had a great afternoon and evening with 4 of my cousins. And bringing
some of the food was such a help.
I hope your Mother's Day was a happy day for you. Take care, Love, Merle.

I am so happy you are over the fall. I had a wonderful Mothers Day except when the dishwasher almost caught on fire. Luck it was on the recall list and will be fixed free of charge. Peace
