Makes a Mama Proud

While I couldn't get the whole thing to scan, the important part is there.  Boy, I'm glad he didn't think to put "My mama wants to sleep all the time."

Hats--Not Just for the Kentucky Derby

This Easter, I was sorely disappointed by the lack of Easter hats at the church service I attended.  Didn't there used to be an Easter hat tradition?

Unfortuantely, this wanton disregard for head coverings made of shiny, wicker-like material appears to transcend religious factions.  I asked a friend of mine if she saw any Easter hats at her church; and she, sadly, had not.  Not a single one.

Now, some of you may say this rant is woefully hypocritical because my head was bare as well--but, in my defense, I didn't have any feathers or fake flowers on hand with which to decorate my baseball cap.  I'm also under the age of 60. 

I had thought I could depend on those mature, fashionable women who have the confidence to flaunt an oversized, gaudy hat in style.  Where have they gone?  Where, I ask you?!

So I'm making a New Year's resolution.  (Yes, in April.)  I'm on a mission to bring back the institiution of the Easter hat.  Something tasteful will do.  Something along the lines of this perhaps.

(Pink has always been my color.)

With a little luck (and a few hot glue guns), I predict a future of Easter happiness: 

May we all be as happy in our hats!
