My life in pictures

I ordered these today–I'm afraid my dad doesn't get why I bought new frames instead of just having the lenses replaced on my old ones, because I am planning to have the lenses changed on my old frames, which I still like, but there's a lot of things about being a girl he doesn't understand (the number of shoes and handbags any girl needs, for example). The black-framed glasses on the right are my new Bad glasses–there's no telling what I might say when I wear them. The round mid-century styles are kind of a throwback to what I wore in the late 80s, early 90s, but I don't know what that means. Shoulderpads next, I expect.

No story behind these pictures, I just like them:

 

I've been trying to walk for 30 minutes every day, when I can do it in the daylight since my neighborhood has narrow streets and no streetlights, so I've been meeting the neighbor cats.  This one sounded like he had guitar strings for vocal chords:

 Isn't this a pretty baby? One of the neighbors told me her name was something like Snuggles and that she was twelve years old or something like that.

I met up with three neighbor ladies on my last walk, Roberta, Pat, and Jan. Roberta says I'm one of the few people to have been inside her house–she very kindly let me in to get a phone book so I could call someone to come get Sukey the day she went up a tree, but it was a cat-lady house, cluttered and messy. Pat goes to my church. She's dyslexic, so instead of singing the hymns, she whistles along with the music, quite skillfully, and sometimes adds handbell gestures. Jan is a retired librarian, the softest-spoken, most ladylike person you could ever meet, and she researches carnival freaks, especially a woman from Georgia born with a parasitic twin.

    Such an artful eye you have. Yes, the glasses are lovely too. Great photo shots Peg. And not one cake or cookie. You are multi-talented. I thought of you today. After being out in the snow, my brown pill-box hat with the faux furry trim was looked like a perfect chocolate cake with powder sugar all over it. Ever make a hat shaped cake?Of course you need extra glasses. At least two. Same as with cats. Enjoy your walks.I'm off to Google "parasitic twin", …maybe.

  2. Thanks pyrit! Plz note "parasitic twin" is in the same sentence as "carnival freaks," so…just so you know.
    Early in my career I did a hat cake:

    Aren't walks of discovery lovely?
    I need to get my eyes checked – my glasses are changing their strengths and efficiencies. Two people thought I might need bifocals – so that's two less people this world has to worry about.
