HEY Y'ALL - WELCOME TO CHICAGO !
Well the day that seemed so distant in the long, cold Chicago winter is finally upon us. Yikes! Did I forget anything? Let's see. I've planted a gazillion flowers, weeded, de-cluttered the house ( it looked like a day care center ) , polished the floor, dusted high and low ( gardener's houses aren't usually that clean in the summer ; at least this one's ) washed windows, cleaned the fish pond, washed and groomed the dogs, prepared drinks for the visitors, and hid the king size BBQ grill and water hose.
Good grief I just realized I have nothing to wear. No proper Southern Belle would be without a gigantic hat. Problem is I can't find one to fit my gigantic head. My head doesn't look big but I found out just how big it was when I walked into a hat store that had rows of hat according to size ( a thing of the past ). As I made my way down the aisle and tried several sizes, all too small, I found myself at the very last one and it didn't fit. The salesman said he could stretch it.
I can't pass the hat section without trying them on and sometimes I accidentally find one that's big enough. I'm on the trail of finding a hat to fit my BIG head. Einstein had an extra large head but I think that's because his brain was bigger than most. Wish I could say that was true in my case.
