So, I went to a party tonight. It was so much fun! I wore a suit my sister gave me years ago. It has a velvet collar and cuffs, all black. She'd bought it for herself, some $200 suit for $15.50, and never worn it. I pulled the tags off. I put on a scarf with border collies on it (not that you could tell, the way it was all scrunched up), a top hat, and my clodhopper oxfords. I looked good, especially considering I am not a spring chicken. I am an early-fall chicken.
And when I am a winter chicken, I expect I'll still wear clunky shoes (but not beige ones) and sometimes that hat.
Anyway, a person who has been trying to be a friend to me for over a year had her birthday party. We ate Italian food and I met a couple who helps put on a jazz fest every year in my city. That just can't be bad. I just can't be unhappy about this. She's a very nice lady with very nice friends.
Then I came home and worked on condo stuff. But you know, I feel like that may be coming along. Not that I'm near done, b/c I'm not. It is piling up like an avalanche ready to drop.
I'm still catching up with everybody. I still have tons of letters to write. I'm still on my way back. Talk to you soon.
