I'm going to turn into one of those eccentric older ladies; all the signs are there. We were out and about shopping yesterday and I saw two must-have items for my retirement.
The first was a cloche felt hat at Macy's. I feel absolutely in love with this hat, and I'm not a hat person! I can see myself wearing this hat and a cotton dress on a hot summer afternoon out for a drive in a jalopy. Sounds crazy, but it has a certain appeal to me. They have it in red, which would be perfect for someone attending a Red Hat Society function. I won't be joining though. I plan to enjoy my unscheduled days and embrace spontaneity wearing my black cloche felt hat.
The second item was a Vespa. Gerry and I both liked these, and I can picture the both of us taking a quick trip to the grocery store on our matching Vespas. Of course, I'd have to be wearing my cloche hat, and Gerry would be wearing his fedora. Perhaps we would have a side car of some sort for Maya and Chelsea.
Shoot...if I'm having these thoughts now one can only imagine what I'll be developing a yen for when I'm eighty!
