ABC WEDNESDAY-"Q": Quirky Mother's Day Hats

Moi, granddaughter Olivia and daughter Kati


Part of our Mother's Day Celebration was to wear a hat we decorated ourselves.  Even some of the males celebrated with us.

  6. I just commented about women's hats on Jillly's site, and then I opened yours and found more hats -- evidently inspired by the popularity of hats among guests at the royal wedding.

  8. Very funny, and fun. A bunch of mad hatters! Are you part of the Red Hat Society?

    Re your comment on The Villages: Were you pulling my leg? The Villages, as I'm sure you know, is a huge retirement community - now with 30K plus homes and over 80K residents. We were also at Spanish Springs the other night and you wouldn't believe all the kids - must have been children and grandchildren visiting.
