Why I love the hat Princess Beatrice wore to THE wedding...aka... The Royal Flush

First, let me say that I do not believe that passive aggressive behavior is a good way to deal with life,  and this is just one opinion on the hat... I also want to say that I don't follow the royals in general, but you really had to be living with your head in the sand to not hear about "the hat" and "the wedding"!  A disclaimer; I am not a professional psychologist:, so my analysis is just amateur....

But part of me just has to admire the self confidence of the woman who could wear this hat, stand tall and proud and have photos taken and posted all over the world.  I so would love to have the boldness to stand in front of everyone and make my opinion known in such a bold way.

What I am surprised about is that I have not seen this opinion posted anywhere else, so here goes:

OK, Princess Beatrice is the daughter of Fergie, Fergie was not invited to the wedding, her dgts were.

Take a good look at the hat:

Does anyone else see the toilet seat in the center, with the flushing water
running down the sides?  The hat just screams flushing toilet to me!! (yeah, I am pretty good with ink dot tests too..)

So, I hear ya, Bold Beatrice!!   A true "Royal Flush"?

Oh, and btw, the talk of the hat goes on.... good move selling on e-bay..
even after the lovely wedding gown pics slowed down on the net.

Have a great day all, enjoy this wonderful world God gave us, and may we all care a little less about other peoples opinions and stand up a little bolder for our convictions!

Operation Write Home

I am so very excited, have my first batch of cards ready to roll for OWH!!  They were so difficult for me, really, because I am used to flowers and animals and bright children images and not not not masculine manly kind of stuff.

Also, the stamp for the back of the cards.. the Operation Write Home stamp they sent me... the one that has been on my desk, right here, waiting for this proud moment... is gone.  It was here a minute ago... it really was.. unfortunately, that was the minute that came right before the minute that I needed it, and now that minute is gone and so is the stamp!  And, of course, these are Father's Day Cards... time limit, needed by the shipper now.
Well, in any event, these cards are leaving my house today.

Have a good one......

Life Goes On..

It is Monday, a beautiful, rainy, gloomy day!  Who needs warmth and sunshine, anyway?  Just makes you feel kind of like maybe playing in the ink and glue and thread and fabric should be put behind while you go out and smell.. and weed the Roses, right?  So, who needs that???...
Actually, the smell of lilacs comes right in my window while I stamp and cut.  What a joyful scent that is.  Last year for Mother's Day my darlin' daughter and her hubbie came over and planted me a couple of the deep purple lilacs, and a double flower Rose of Sharon.  The lilacs are barely 4 ft tall, but both have almost 3 dozen blooms on them.  Happy little lilacs!
So, where have I been, my 3 followers may be wondering?  (Well, maybe they haven't been, but it is nice to pretend)  Mom has been sick, and we can not figure out the cause, or what to do about it.  We have been visiting doctors, and scanners and scopers and pokers and prodders, and, proud to say.. we have stumped them all!!  Got another one lined up today... can't wait!*****

***Disclaimer for those who may not know me...I tend toward satire and sarcasm when humor gets stretched past my laughing point****it can be difficult to tell at times; I am working on it, just not today, general rule of thumb is this; If it hurts, I am sorry, I did not mean it.. there really is not a mean bone in my body.

So, just thought I would pop in and say Hi!  Hope you are enjoying the Spring.  Praise God for the rain.  Pray for the people who have too much, the people who have had too little, the people who have just the right amount.  We all need prayer, so, lets just pray for the people!
