Red Hats and Purple Attire... Oh My!

>> Tuesday, August 18, 2009

As you can see, a vision in red hats and purple attire visited us today! If you can't guess - the Stuart Chapter of the Red Hat Society came for lunch and a tour of the Inn. What a delightful group of ladies they are.

Having them in the Inn reminded me of my college days. One of the girls on my dorm floor had the poem "Warning" by Jenny Joseph posted on her door. It became a part of my day to stop, read it and laugh. The poem, which is a humorous reflection on the desire to do whatever comes to mind but not being able to b/c of society's rules, begins with:

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.

What a concept - to live life just as we want to!!

It was a pleasure to see these 13 ladies living it up and enjoying themselves here at the Mountain Rose. They laughed, they joked and they had a good time. They were an inspiration to me.

Happy living as you'd like today,
Dora Jane
