sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

We’ll take four!

Dresses, that is. Mama, Country and I went shopping. Man, did we go shopping. Clothes for Country and Diva, and 4 just-alike-except-for-the-size dresses for the four of us to wear on Mother’s Day. Seriously, this is the universally flattering dress. It fits all of us and looks great on each of us! Can’t beat that! This is our first year without Grandmother, and so, for the first time, I may be in my own church on Mother’s Day. Or I may end up going to Granny’s church, with the rest of that side of the family. Regardless, we’ll be wearing those new frocks, that much is settled. Also, we did not get new slips, the “control” ones that mashed our boobs flat and let our bellies hang about in a most bouncy and unflattering way. Also, I think I hurt my shoulder joint getting the thing on and off. Just sayin’

So, what are you doing for Mother’s Day? Do you still live close enough to visit? I tell you, when I lived out of state, it was hard on me not to be around my family on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, almost as hard as the bigger holidays of Christmas and Thanksgiving. Of course, that was before everyone was online, when you still had to use the yellow pages to send a long distance mothers day gift. 1-800-FLOWERS makes it so easy to select just the right arrangement, unlike when you had to call, and kinda just hope what they were describing to you sounded like what you thought it sounded like. Did that make sense? I hope so. If you ordered flowers back in the day, you know exactly what I meant, anyway. Nothing more unnerving than having to say ‘Red, she likes red, can you send some red flowers that look like ruffles?” “No, I don’t know the name of them.” “No, not roses, the other ones”. Yeah, slick, right?

Be smarter, and let the florist work harder instead of you, LOL!
