Finally!

All winter long I've mourned the loss of my oh-so-beloved bike rides with Darek and our stellar bikes. Saturday we decided to cruise downtown on our bikes to enjoy the weather and all the people watching.


We rode over to Haymarket and checked out all the grub and hubbub. It was so fun that so many people were out and I always love Haymarket because it reminds me so much of Italy and is indeed full of Italian pasta mamas buying all their fresh ingredients for their deliscious creations! I wish they would invite me over for dinner!

Darek "admiring the general splendor." If anyone can name the movie that that line comes from I'll give you a very exciting reward!


Yes, this was my very discreet picture of the red hat society walking by. Darek looks real funny because I was pretending (obviously) to take a picture of him but actually just wanted to get a picture of the cool old ladies in the background.

The Red Hat Society is the coolest. People clapped for them as they walked by and they waved and said, "woo hoo!" like they were on a float in a parade! Nothing better than old ladies that dress in red and purple and go out to lunch to gossip about how loose and moraless today's youth are and so on and so forth. My grandma once commented on my many ear peircings, "In my day only FAST women had their ears pierced!" I'm not quit sure what a "fast" woman is, but it sounds disgraceful and I've called myself one every since. Haha! Never fear grandma, I've let seven of my nine piercings grow in!

You better believe I'll be joining this old lady sorority as soon as I reach the ripe old age of wrinkled at which point I'll have earned the right to be as critical and gossipy as I please!

i am so jealous of the outdoor, market, type atmosphere. i seriously miss that life. i am so depressed here. i miss the fruit stands. the "downtown"ness of city life. the cool, quant shops. the locals are the best. here the locals are all at casinos. i hate it. even more, i love that you guys can ride your cool bikes and go and enjoy the day. so fun.

Darek looks oh so glamorous! What a fun little market to visit. We really need to get out there sometime.

I like the ladies. Don't you have to be single or widowed to join them? I saw them at Leatherbys in Valencia...where we were Go Carting with the YW and I puked in the bathroom cause I was brand new pregnant. good times those ladies bring...and by the way, I whooped those YW on the go carts, booyaa!

I love the red hat ladies. That's great. I will miss the 9 piercings Amerli. too bad. Don't you love Spring! I love the Blue Spirit. Wish I had one.

I heart the red hat ladies too. Who can think of the purple and red combo and not think of them? Who ever saw ANYTHING in the combo before them anyway??? Applause to them for at least being daring enough to wear what they do at their age. I only hope I can have as much spunk at that age.
