Oh! my gosh, did you see those hats?

Yes I know the Brits are rather fond of hats, but goodness, there is a limit. I cant' believe that some of the hats worn at the Royal wedding were reported as the best. Even though I have
British/Irish/Scottish blood flowing through my veins, I would not bee seen dead wearing some of those creations. Can you imagine little 5 foot nothing me, wearing something the size of a beach umbrella, and looking decidedly less attractive, or a hat defying gravity perched over my brow, probably anchored in my hair by a dozen bobby pins. Jeez!
How about the one worn by Princess Beatrice, some sort of bow thingie creation worn on her forehead, it will be the buss of the town for weeks, as will be many of the others.

OMG is it really, where are my sun glasses? I am blinded. I do believe the sun is showing it's face.

Spring seems to be coming and going here in the Pacific Northwest. We have had snow, hail, copious amounts of rain, and as yet, not a whole lot of sun.
I had planned to spend Saturday out in the garden, but the rain drumming on our roof in the wee early hours of the morning put a stop to that idea, although we did get a short break in the afternoon. I took advantage of the break to run out to the veggie garden to sow some parsnip seeds, cover them with some row cover fabric to prevent them washing away, and get back indoors before the next downpour.
Perhaps the sun may shine a little today, so I can pull some of the weeds which are taking over my flower beds.
Yesterday we were in Puyallup at a shooting match, and enjoyed the sun on our faces for practically the whole day. Oh! what a treat to feel the warmth instead of the usual shivering and shaking as we wait for our turn to compete. I shot fairly well, and I know it is partly to do with being relaxed, due to being warm instead of having fingers and a body stiff from being cold. I will know better when I see our scores, which should be in a day or so.

Inner Peace:

If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

Then you probably are,

A little humor to brighten your day

A tour bus driver drives with a bus full of seniors down a highway, when a little old lady taps him on his shoulder. She offers him a handful of almonds, which he gratefully munches up.

After approx.15 minutes, she taps him on his shoulder again and she hands him another handful of almonds. She repeats this gesture about eight times.

At the ninth time he asks the little old lady why they don't eat the almonds themselves, whereupon she replies that it is not possible because of their old teeth, they are not able to chew them. "Why do you buy them then?" he asks puzzled. Whereupon the old lady Answers, "We just love the chocolate around them."
