Love white.
I think I started my love affair when people started telling me all the rules concerning it. 
You can’t wear white past Labour Day.
Never wear white to a wedding unless you are the bride.
Don’t wear white to a funeral.
For God’s sake change her into play clothes before she ruins her Sunday dress.
You have to wear a slip or something under white, what would happen if it got wet?
Don’t wear white if you are trying to look slimmer.
I like things other people pick on.  The heart wants what the heart wants.

I had to get glasses when I was in school.  I am not sure why.
I have a theory.  I think my grandparents wanted to make me look more intelligent than I really was.  People tend to overlook insanity when they think it is a by-product of intelligence.   They also frequently sent me to school with boxes of candy to share.  I think they hoped that I might be able to buy some friends.   Pfft forget that … I ate all the candy myself.
OK I did share them with a boy named Leonard … only because Leonard showed me … Read more at the source.

OK that never happened to me but I have a

10 speed bikes were a big deal for us.  Prior to that we had bikes like the old 50’s and 60’s movies.  That is because we grew up in the 50’s and 60’s.
I never wanted a girls bike … those were for girls.

We used jar rings to hold our pant legs in so they would not get caught in the chain.   Bell bottoms were big and bike gear … come on … we were fighting to be able to wear a two piece to the

Sunset 1
I got talked into having this older couple sing at our wedding.  They were significant to my husband.
They were going to sing “Sunrise, Sunset” From Fiddler on the Roof.
The wedding went fine, apart from the flower girl who was doing a mean interpretation of the future in which a half naked woman wearing cones on her breasts and her underpants over her other clothes would prance around a stage in front of millions, “Vogue-ing.”  When I whispered to her during the ceremony, asking what she was doing, she informed me she was “being a tree.”   Her mother told … Read more at the source.
