Good morning. Tis simply beautiful outside my door. Temps are cool at the moment, the sun is shining and there's a teeny tiny breeze just tickling the edges of my flag and the leaves s on the trees.
Pogo and I got up early this morning and had breakfast. He's decided that he's rather tired of boiled chicken and rice so I gave him doggie food for a change. He must have appreciated the change because he ate most all of it.
A week ago, Audrey and Mac attended another Taxidermy convention, and Mac entered his sculpture . I'm proud to say that he took two awards. "Best of Category - Original Art Professional" and the "Chris Barnhardt Award - Most Creative." Congratulations Mac!!
Do any of you subscribe to Redbook magazine? If so, does this latest cover bother you at all? I realize that we all come in different shapes and sizes, but when we are carrying too much fat do we really have to flaunt it? This is the cover of the recent issue of the magazine. It features the winners of the "Real Women Style Award."
I think the woman on the left and the woman in the middle look quite stylish and really nice. It's the woman on the right that bothers me. Does her look really deserve a "fashion style" award? Obesity is not healthy and I don't think that flaunting it in such an unflattering look is a good thing to do.
No, I'm not picking on people who are overweight. I'm in that group too. I just don't see anything stylish about wearing an unbuttoned shirt to show your oversized gut hanging out over your pants. Add holes in your pants and super high heels and OMG! I'm not sure if this woman is getting ready to chop down a tree or to wrestle a big bear. Ladies, is this really how we want to portray ourselves? Nuff said!
p.s. If this is your look, I apologize if my comments offend you. I'm just very old fashioned in a lot of my views.
I guess while I'm on this rant, I should mention that I really wish that the fashion world would bring back the maternity clothes of years gone past. We had such beautiful and feminine maternity clothes.
Last week, the guy from the oxygen company did not show up when he was supposed to, so he's rescheduled to come by today. I had asked for a morning appointment, but we'll see. When I called for the appointment, I was told that the service guys did not even start their day on the road before ten or ten thirty in the morning.
Here's a fun photo that Deanne sent to me. This is my daughter Deanne (in the middle), and two of my granddaughters, Mia (left) and Brandy (right). They are having fun at a luau party. Mia and Brandy are my daughter Kerri's daughters. I'm might proud of my girls!
Last night I thought I might put a few more rows on the blue afghan. Well, once I got started, I noticed a rather big boo boo two rows back. I tried to fix it but I could not, so I ended up ripping out two rows and starting over. Some days it just does not pay to pick up the crochet hook.
Now I think I'll have me another cup of coffee before that oxygen guy gets here. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
