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!
