    Newer Older

    I always wanted a red hat so I can say and do... whatever I want
    now at age 77 I finally got it!

      Bravo! I am with you, Julie! Did you join the Red Hat Society? = )

      I did not join, you have to pay them! Only in my hart.
      I do not need a society to begin to behave, like I want,
      (or always had, or for at least some dozens of years)

      A first: flowers on my nails
      But I let my grand daugher put flowers on my new red nails, for me it is a first.
      A first for me_Family pained !

      When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
      With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
      And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
      And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.
      I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
      And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
      And run my stick along the public railings
      And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
      I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
      And pick flowers in other people's gardens
      And learn to spit.

      You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
      And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
      Or only bread and pickle for a week
      And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

      But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
      And pay our rent and not swear in the street
      And set a good example for the children.
      We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

      But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
      So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
      When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

      Good example of using the rule of thirds.

      If you have not yet you might want to join the Red Hat Society, a great symbol for irreverent aging.
