I’m pretty sure the snowpile must be gone by now… The pile was still pretty big a week ago, but here it is on July 20,
Since the latest guess was July 4, Krysta won! On Thursday, there was just a smidge of darkish (meaning ice) sand. I never actually went down there, but then there was no question who won!
We went to the parade at the Old Hallowell Days. It’s a great small town affair. Here’s one of the more interesting things in the parade,
I mean, who knew there was a Farriers Association for the Prevention of Hoofrot, never mind a Ladies’ Auxilary? Ah…. just a joke. But check out the dancing rubber duckies at the link, they were my favorites!
There was a small craft contingent there, and I fell in love with Julie and her One Woman Studio bags.
Don’t you agree that my friend Alphy Poulin needs this bag?
He’s the ballet master at the Julliard school, and I was hoping to get this to him before he left for Brazil… oh well, it’ll be waiting for him when he gets back to NYC!
How do I know? I spent the past two nights with mom, but can you believe I didn’t bring my camera?
The plan, successfully accomplished, was to go into Boston for an appointment for a fitting at Intimacy at Copley Place. It was yesterday, when temps were about 104 in Boston… We were going to take the train in, and the subway through town, but that part of the plan was abandoned in favor of air conditioned car, a parking garage, and air conditioned walking through all the shopping.
And the fitting? O-M-G. If you’re having problems finding a bra, go to this store!
The fitter said “I can’t believe you’ve been having all this trouble, you are an easy fit“. And nearly everything she brought me did fit, was comfortable, and was lovely. I blew a paycheck, but now I have an assortment of bras that work and can throw away the old ones (they are too tired to work for anybody else).
And I got a bathing suit… a bikini! Now I know I don’t have the body I did at 20, but what the hell, right? Now I need to go to the beach… or to Europe!
My personal crusade for a well fitted and comfortable (and attractive) bra may be over, but I will still probably talk about it. So, if you want more info, let me know. I can help you help yourself get into a better bra.
