Well, I think my family really thinks I’ve gone off the deep end. Maybe they’re right, but I’m sure enjoying it. Saturday I pick up Kellar (against my family’s advice!), I’ve had a purple and blue stripe right in the front of my hair for the passed 18 months, and I finally got myself something I always wanted. Way back when I was in 6th or 7th grade, all the girls were wearing “saddle shoes.” I desperately wanted a pair …. after a lot of begging, my alcoholic parents finally relented. So, one night, the 3 of us went to a shoestore and I got those saddle shoes ….. BUT the “saddle part” was not black or brown …. instead it was RED PLAID and they had THICK RED FOAM SOLES, obviously making me stand out like a sore thumb. Well, the other day, I ordered a pair of real saddle shoes from Zappos, and they came today. I love them! So, here I am, a 73 year old woman, with purple and blue stripes in her hair, wearing saddle shoes and walking a dog who is probably very long with short legs! I may look like I’m nuts, but I’m sure having fun.
