I crocheted a RED HAT with a PURPLE RIM and PURPLE FLOWER. Check it out:
Did you ever read the story that goes with it?
WHEN I AM AN OLD WOMAN
I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go,
And doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension
On brandy and summer gloves who know me are
And satin sandals, and say we’ve
No money for butter. I shall sit down
On the pavement when I’m tired
And gobble up samples in shops
And press alarm bells
And run my stick along the
And make up for the
Sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers
In the rain and pick the ‘flowers in other people’s
Gardens and learn to spit.
You can wear terrible shirts
And grow more fat
And eat three pounds
Of sausages at a go or
Only bread and pickle for a week
And board pens and pencils
and things in boxes.
But now we must have cloths that keep us dry
And pay our rent
And not swear in the street
And set a good example
For the children.
We will have friends to dinner and
Read the papers. But maybe I
Ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are
Not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old I am old
And start to wear purple.
I do not know if they meet around where I live now, but when we lived in VA, there were a lot of women that would have fun together. Their motto was to never grow up. Just have fun. And that they did! They would go shopping together, have luncheons, etc.
Well, I had to make a scarf to go with my hat.
Now have the hat and the scarf, I am ready!
How about you??? What is your motto???
