Missing the Farm.

foil1a

Sometimes I just find myself waxxing nostalgic (don't ask me what that means I have no idea but when you are doing nostalgia you are supposed to wax ... ya who knew ... grandma was years ahead in the personal hygiene department.)

foil2a

So when I feel that way I find myself wandering down to the creek and leaning over the fence and looking longingly at the neighbours paddock and calling softly into the wind .... "Fluffffffy.... oh Fllllllufffffffyyyy. Here Fluffy. Come on Fluffy, come to mama ...."

But the cows just look at me like I am some kind of loser or something.

They don't speak Canadian and they never met "Fluffy." Hubby told me I should be careful. There could be a snake named "Fluffy," and I would not like it if he answered the call would I?

I think it is a trick to keep me from hanging over the fence and bothering the neighbours ... mainly because he doesn't like the idea of people shooting at me and all those stray bullets coming into the yard.

Normally I trust what he tells me but come on .... a snake named "Fluffy?"

Pffft get real!

foil3b


That snake would be cuddling with someone somewhere like all animals named "Fluffy" do.

That's what I miss most about my cow "Fluffy," . . .  all those wonderful afternoons just cuddling.

The Magic of Second Life.

sor1

I really like Second Life. It protects you from the harsh realities of the real world.

sor2


Putting aside that you can fly and magically teleport yourself wherever you wanna be in a matter of seconds, there is the factor that you can wander mountains in your lingerie. I mean you can do that in real life too but the lace tends to get caught in the rocks, and your toes tend to get stubbed and bloody which takes away from the whole effortless fashionista kind of thing.

And you can wear your underwear to the store, or to the concert, or to the wedding, or the sporting event or anywhere you want to really ... and you are pretty much guaranteed that someone there is going to look stupider than you or will act stupider than you.

sor3

If you want to guarantee that 100%  . . . just make sure some of your alts are at the same place.

Suede, the Romance of it All.

mor1

We all had to have suede purses with fringes, and suede vests with fringes ... because we were kids ... living on the fringe ... of suede???

mor2

Nothing went better with a peasant dress than a fringed suede bag and bell bottom jeans absolutely kicked ass with a fringed vest.

Not many of the country kids were hippies.

We were too busy trying to be polite while we combined the fields of wheat and milked the cows. Perhpas some felt that it was a travesty to wear suede considering we depended so much on the cow. I think they probably were subconsciously protesting from wearing "cow" as if they were that insignificant as to be relegated to a mere purse or a vest. I bet at lots of barbeques around the country while they ate their hamburgers and turned the steaks over on the coals, they really felt the need to give the cows a voice amidst the crazed, drugged induced, love fest of the out of control, unbathed and unbra-ed youth ....

I am pretty sure that is what is was all about.

mor3

Either that or the local tractor and hardware store just were late getting suede fringed purses and vests in.

Sandals and Socks.

dwm2a 

 Is there anything more attractive than a man in sandals and dark socks with shorts and pasty white legs?? Can you say Canadian on holiday?

  dwm1a 

 I mean you have to have compassion that wearing sandals in the snow with bare feet can be really tough. AND unfortunately, you book your holidays to go up to the lake but you never know when a snow storm could hit so ya the socks are kind of necessary. I will go that far.

  dwm3a 

 But a pasty white naked man with dark socks is more impactful than a cold shower.

If You Wanna Be Fair.

ads2ab


You know we greatly underestimate the influence that teachers have over our lives ... and school ... it impacts us too. I mean if we are really fair about it.

ads1ab


I am not forcing you to be fair.  If you feel strongly that you wanna continue to be unfair, like if today sucks for you, then by all means, you go ahead and be a bitch ... it is your right as an adult.

I think back to my grade two teacher who pointed out to us that an easy way to tell the difference between "desert" and "dessert" is that we always want 2 helpings of "dessert" and so it has two "s's."

How brilliant was that??

And what a life lesson.

I cannot tell you the number of times that helped me from having 2 helpings of camel ... or sand ...

ads3ab
 
 
But probably also was responsible for making me have 2 helpings of ice cream and sticky date pudding ... which is probably why so many people are overweight ... all because of mind control conditioning done at the grade school level under the guise of  "spelling tips" and a teacher campaigning for nicer Christmas gifts ...
 
That is so FREAKING unfair!

Weekend Chores.

ita2a


Wow what a busy busy Saturday. Don't you love productive, everyone pitches in and helps, kind of days? You get so much done and you feel so incredible when it is all done, high fiving everyone who looks at you and even some of those who don't?? (although I freely admit it is a lot more work to high five someone who is trying to run away from you .. with perseverance ... it CAN be done.)

ita1a

First there was mowing the 3/4 acres - no ride on mower easy stuff here folks - and then finshing up the cement that was laid, power washing the new retaining wall and steps we made, power washing the drive way and the patio and around the pool, man oh man ... busy busy busy ....

And then all of a sudden there was this knock knock on the window of my office and there was my hubby. I kept the window closed because all the working was so freaking noisy I could not concentrate on my Mahjong game. He wanted me to open the garage door for him.

So I did.

As I stood there, looking out at the beautiful yard I told him, "Look at us, are we a team or what? I bet you are thanking you lucky stars you married me huh? I mean, you have to admit, without my help today, opening this garage door for you, all of this would never have been possible.!"

He nodded, as sweat dripped off him in a puddle onto the grass, "I was just thinking that."

ita3a

I am betting he wanted a hug right then and there. Sometimes he needs that to remind himself I am real and he is really that lucky.

But he was sweating.

Get real.

I will send him a nice e-card ... when I am done my mahjong game.

When Birds Lose It.

socl1

I have been accused of being neurotic and insane so why wouldn't we have insane wildlife around our house?

socl2

I like to think of it as a "home." You know the animals probably try to go to other places but the word gets out ... over to Bliss's place, she is as whacked as you are and you are safe to totally give into your neurosis and well ... just have a good time.

So our little bird that lost it on the window the other day, pecking at it, has now developed OCD. He is at the window constantly. He brought his friends, he tap tap taps endlessly and even if we try to block his reflection, talk to him sternly, or get up close and personal ... he will not be deterred. Now he flies around the house to find out where we are so he can make sure he taps on THAT window.

Does not want us to miss out on the joy of his insanity.

At least he always has a couple friends with him ... not sure if they are lauging at him, their for his protection, or filming a documentary on "When Birds Go Mad."

But I love him just the same as all my other little birds . . .

Help For the Masses At Your Local Library.

btod2a



Sometimes I like to get all dressed up like a geek and go to the library and just hang out in the stacks.

btod5a

I like to set up a little booth way in the back and put out an "information and advice" sign so that people who just come to find a book, or to read, or to study ... get more than what they paid for. People get so tired of pamphlets ... I mean other than folding out what tricks can they do?  It is my service to humanity. Not that it costs anything for them to come to the library but sometimes free things should include more free things on account of what should people with money have all the fun??

People are always doubtful at first but when I start handing out free glasses of wine, they are totally into it, and usually there is a line up of people wanting to know stuff about life and the world and many important things that I am perfectly qualified to advise them on. Of course I have to herd the little kids back to story corner because as cute as they are, I am not going to change their milk from their sippy cups to wine. 

I only fill the sippy cups from the seniors.

You can't have spent your childhood being raised by senior citizens and not have absorbed some of that wisdom. It was in everything they baked and especially the coffee ... and then you double that by being on the prairies of Canada and well ... we don't just raise wheat ... we raise wisdom. Kellogg's missed the boat by not advertising that on their All Bran cereal because All Bran not only makes you regular ... it makes you wise. It's true that no-one has ever done an actual study to find out if it is the wheat that makes you wise, or being regular ...to be really fair on that claim I guess we would have to study a bunch of people in Mensa and see how many, if any, are constipated. 

btod4a


Well by now you can see how incredibly intelligent I am and understand why my booth is always a run away success at the local library.

I was really hopeful when they cloned Dolly the sheep because lets face it, once they did a sheep, human beings would be a no brainer being as so many humans have identical DNA.  I thought well, they can clone me and I can be here to help the library people forever because I have to tell you, when I think of a world without me being here to help ... I weep man ...

I really weep.

If You Think About It ...(or not ... )

DRB2

If you really look at Butterflies they have antennae and squiggly legs and are creepy.  They are just bugs in drag.  And let's not forget they used to be caterpillars.

DRB1

We just forgive a lot because they have pretty wings and they float around in the air gently. That's kinda interesting huh?

Wonder what that says about us and our judgments of things?

I put on my scientist white coat (have to put in the pocket protector otherwise people think you are coming to take them away)and got a spider, held it with some tweezers and attempted to glue gun on some Barbie Wings.

The first spider got kind of lost in the glue and died.

The next one was crushed by the wings and the third one(after I cut the wings down) just looked at me like "you have got to be kidding me?"

Unfortunately the operation was irreversible so I just put him outside next to some butterflies and hoped they might play with him.

They didn't. They flew away.

The moths might take him in.

I am not hopeful though because I still did not like the spider even though when I threw him up in the air he did kind of float and look pretty. Grandma always said you could not make a silk purse out of a sows ear which is evidence both of there being sicker people than me a long time ago AND that you probably cannot make a butterfly out of a glue-gunned spider.

DRB3


Now I am waiting for someone to try it on snakes.

 I am not hopeful and I am not going to offer to help.

I have a feeling that a snake and a hot glue gun might result in an angry bitey snake and everyone knows those will not make good butterflies.

One of Those Kind of Nights.

mfb3a

I am thinking about getting drunk  chemically whacked tonight being as it is going to hail like crazy and things have been getting weird here.

Like is the sky supposed to be green??

mfb2a

If tonight is like the last few nights then I wanna be prepared.  Pass the wine please ... no need for a glass ... just give me the bottle.

First of all we had the night where something was thumping around on top of the house and then jumped down to the ground and then was banging on the screen door. 

I would have screamed but I didn't want to wake hubby up ... being as he was sleeping so peacefully.  He might as well have a good night's rest before he has to get up and call the police to tell them we have both been murdered in our sleep.

The next morning he tells me that he has cut all the bushes and trees back around the house so it is impossible for any kind of animal to get up there other than a bird but this bird would have had to have been like a prehistoric size of a bird unless ostriches can fly now and one happened by that night.  He suggests maybe a frog jumped up or a fruit bat.  Because you know the ground shakes when frogs leap and fruit bats like to run along the roof and then jump to the ground before they fly at doors and bang into them being as they don't have sonar or anything.

Then the next night as I went to bed there was this deep rumbling sound like thunder off in the distance except it never changed and it went on and on. Hubby said he could not hear it (he has some hearing damage) so I was trying to describe it to him and he is telling me it is a motorcycle or a big truck like I have no idea what those sound like.

I love that he argues with me . . . he has NO IDEA what he is talking about because HE DIDN'T HEAR ANYTHING and he is arguing with me WHO CAN HEAR it, about what it is????

How does that work?

I am trying to explain to him that it is a deep rumbling that fills the whole space outside, it is like it comes from the bowels of the earth and he starts laughing at me and wants to "assure me" he will protect me from the bowels.  I told him I did not think it was funny at all. We are going to end up going into the wilds of Australia and somewhere in the middle of nowhere we are going to be killed. He is not even going to be able to hear someone coming to kill us and I am going to be on my own. I had tears in my eyes as I envisioned my death. 

He was rolling on the floor at this point.

I tell him they never caught that guy from Wolf Creek.

Hubby tells me we aren't going to Wolf Creek.

He missed the point.   They looked in Wolf Creek for that killer and he clearly was not there!!    No-one knows where he is except he is NOT in Wolf Creek.  We should be going to Wolf Creek.  We would be safe there.  That guy will be where we end up going and I will be alone hearing him coming to kill us in a tank with the radio blaring some acid rock and hubby is either going to be asleep or  arguing with me that it is just a frog  . . . or maybe a fruit bat.

mfb1a

And now it is going to hail and it will probably be some freak storm and he is going to say he can't see the baseball size stones or hear them smashing through the house.

And I am going to be too drunk to care. 

Drunks always end up miraculously surviving.

I am a survivor.

Waiting for Dinner.

1a

There we sat, dinner was finally on the table, all the family gathered around at Easter/Christmas/Thanksgiving/4-H Steer of the Year/Whatever with all your favourite dishes and you could not wait to dig in.  Your mouth was watering, your brothers mouth was watering and grandma already had her teeth in and ready to go.  And then someone would say, "Wait, Wait!  We have to say grace!" 

2a

And everyone would have to bow their head and some tattle tale would tell on someone whose eyes were not closed tight and their head not bowed and then there would be the argument of "how would you know that unless your head was not bowed and your eyes were opened" and the pot and the kettle would scream, and the parents would insist everyone close their eyes and then there would have to be a grace period while a responsible adult checked to make sure.  After the "all clear" pronouncement someone would be asked to say prayer and it would always end up being "Aunt Maude," even though you had already fervently been pre-praying "please please God don't let it be Aunt Maude."

And Aunt Maude would start recapping the entire worlds history since her last family prayer, doing the thank-you's and letting the Lord know we had noticed what was happening, and then the requests for family, friends, neighbours and people we drove by on the street or stood next to in a grocery line once.

And an hour would pass.

And mom's famous green bean casserole would get cold and congealed and you stopped drooling and grandma had taken her teeth back out and dropped them in Grandpa's water, while Uncle Bob had actually left the table and was watching the football game in the other room.

But that was back in the day.  Now, people are not so big on the praying ... and if they are ... it is brief and many people are already dishing up anyway, without teeth, and in front of the TV, watching the football game.  But before you go patting each other on the back on our apparent evolution as human beings you should think about the cost of modern technology.  

Even atheists have to wait while everyone at the table pulls out their cell phones and takes pics of the food set on the table, then dished out on their plate, and then half eaten. You have to photograph it, think of something incredible to say, and then get it onto social media somewhere because you know the whole world is dying to know what you are having for lunch.

6a

There is even a Pinterest category for green bean casserole and people write things like "WOW" and "mmmm,"   because people have replaced God with food in their esteem.

We love our food.  And we love to share our food ... well not the actual food ... just the pictures of our food.  It is very spiritual and social of us.  A good enough picture of our food and people envy us and weep over their ramen noodle lunch.  It is a status symbol.  We don't share our real photos but we certainly share our food.

And sometimes, we even find a picture of God IN the green bean casserole and somewhere up there both God and mom smile and high five one another.

Now that is progress.

In a totally socially networked kind of way ....

Shag Carpets.

iff1ab

People laugh at the 70's and some of the colour and fashion choices but you have to give it over to those shag carpets. I mean what was not to love?

iff2ab

You could have an entire sandbox of dirt in there and it would all just settle down there ... somewhere....

Kids were well fed ... even if mom never fixed dinner ... there was always something left over down there.

You didn't even really have to vacuum ... you could just rake it ... yup ... you vacuumed and then raked. If you were really lazy you just raked it and then picked up the stuff it pulled out in piles.

iff3ab

My aunt lost a couple of kids though ... always wonder what happened to them and if they ever found their way out ...

Twirling 101.

dos1a

I frankly do not understand why twirling is limited to small children, Dervishes, and Julie Andrews at the start of "The Sound of Music."

dos2a



I twirl.  I am damn good at it.  I can do it with or without crinolines, naked or dressed, drinking or not.   People stop, they look, some throw money ... ok I am not completely sure the quarter was intended for me, there is a small chance it was for the homeless person sitting behind me and I got in the way and it just fell in my thong ...

BUT ...

The point being that twirling makes you feel alive.  It makes you want to sing ... it makes you giddy and you laugh and laugh and that is supposed to be really good for you.  15 minutes of laughing is like a 2 hour nap for your body which is why I spend so much of the night laughing ... except I try not to until AFTER that special part in the sex talk  where "mommy and daddy love each other very much and..." because hubby tends to get upset.


dos3a


And then you throw up ... it is just like being 13 and drinking all over again and you know ... us old people gotta grab the brass ring every chance it comes around!

OMG its twirling music ... Gangman style!!

The Rosie Posie Blog Blogger Memes and Really Truthful Answers.

iaw5a


This is my first Blogger Challenge/meme and this one is from The Rosie Posie Blog.   It is part of the great new group/website/directives from Blogging SL gods and legends called SL Blogger Support.  It is a one stop shop for all your blogging needs and they will even come over to your house and fit your home with blogging aids to help you get out of the bathtub and stuff.


I am already fighting the demons on this one ... there is the nice demon who says "play nice" and sounds annoyingly like my grandmother and then there is the "fun demon" who can barely be heard over the loud music, the goats screaming at the penguins, and guests having a good time asking me "why change the bad habits of a life time?"  I was going to let them mud wrestle it out for supremacy but not sure it would be fair, grandma having a walker and all ... that thing really hurts when she throws it at you.


So ... I am going to close my eyes and answer...


1. What is the thing you fear most in the world above dying(that is if you fear death)? Getting into an accident without clean underwear on ... I have no idea what actually happens but the way my grandmother carried on about it, it must be bad.  I think they check at the scene of the accident, just before they put you in the ambulance, and if your underwear is not clean enough they put you back inside the car and leave you there ... oh and call your grandmother ....


OK OK ... ummm ...afraid of ever becoming hardened to the point where I lose my ability to feel compassion, to not be able cry for others, to not be moved by the needs of my fellow man.


2. When’s the last time you sat down and contemplated where your life was going, and what did you concluded from that?   I have accomplished pretty much everything I wanted to in my life as far as personal goals and I am very fortunate to live a fairy tale type of life with the most incredible man.  Now life is about giving back, learning, having experiences as we travel, meeting people, etc.  I am incredibly blessed and happy.  Nothing ever happened the way I thought it would and I certainly did not count on so much pain along the way but it is all good and yes, I take time every day to remember that.  I think you have to have the contrast to really appreciate.


3. If you could give any one person in the world a wish, a wish you knew you could grant, what would it be, and why would you give it to them?  I wouldn't.  I wouldn't because wishes should be your soul's desire and part of life is coming to the understanding that you are powerful enough to make your own wishes come true. We spend too much time looking outside of ourselves for happiness and completion instead of within ourselves where the real power lies.

 
4. Cat, dog, rabbit, horse, chicken, dolphin? There are so many animals in the world, if you could be one, and had to think, act, be like one, with out human thoughts, emotions, perception of the world, which would you be, and why? I am sure many people would argue for the Jack Ass lol.   I have no idea except to say maybe a bird simply because SL has got me kind of accustomed to flying and my own attempts to make wings in real life has not been so successful and has resulted in me being banned from climbing up on roofs anymore and jumping.


5. Today is the last day you’ll ever see your family. Some you may love, some you may hate, other you may not have any emotional attachment to. What would you do?  The same I do every day.  I refuse to live my life without regard for the fact I only really have this moment and therefore I need to live in a way that minimizes damage in case I am not here tomorrow to fix it.  I suck at that sometimes.  But I do make the effort to talk to my family and to be involved in their lives.  I do have family I do not see and I will not see for very serious reasons and I am fine with that.  I love them in the greater sense of the word, but they are not a part of my life for a reason and my dying will not change that.

 
6. Given the chance to travel to one country -ONLY – in your whole life, other than the one you’ve grown up in, or have found yourself living in (pretend you’ve gone to no other country in the world other than the one you now call home) where would it be? Why, and for how long?  Iceland.  I would love to explore the spiritual history of it ... I would stay as long as it took.


7. Quick you have to pick 5 things to take with you as you are rushing out of the house- you don’t know what’s happening, where you’re going, whom is taking you where, or why, but you do know you can carry about 5 things, in the small bag you’ve given to take with you. What do you choose? Mare you kidding me??  Clean underwear of course ... to slip on while we wait for the ambulance ....


Probably my party dress, some great perfume, make-up, toothbrush, my credit card so I can pay for my shout and my hubby ... a good time is not a good time without him.  He can carry my small bag ... and his .. which will also have the clean underwear in i.  He is good about giving up his space for me lol.

  

8. You’re sitting in a dream, you can tell you’re dreaming, but you’re not awake enough to move. What do you see? Is anyone there? (be creative, make something up, or recall a dream you had before) My fear would be it would be one of those girls from Jr. High sitting on my chest and holding one of the dead mice I threw at them that day and that someone answered Question 3 with her name and revenge was the wish ....

 
OK ...There would always be someone there with me, most likely some kind of a higher presence and we would joke and laugh and talk and have the best time because I think they probably get tired of having to always come up with something profound and wise and would probably just enjoy a glass of wine and some good laughs.  They would have to hold the wine to my mouth to drink though of course ... or get me a straw or something ...life support at its finest!!


9. What color do you think you are?  Blush Pink.  Probably because my whole life I was surrounded by it.  First my grandparents, every time I did something, then my hubby, then my kids and now grandkids.  I am an intergenerational Blush Pink kinda girl ... spreading my gift all over the place.

 
10.  If when it came to blogging, if you blog, no one say your blogs, no one commented, no one noticed, no one cared, at all, would you keep blogging? Are people supposed to read what you write???

 
The only person I have to answer to is within me.  I do what I do because it is the right thing for me to do, whether that is a creative endeavour or even helping someone else.  I work hard to disconnect from the need of approval from others.  If approval comes it is a wonderful bonus and if not, it doesn't matter because I write (like I do many things) because I enjoy it.  I laugh.  I cry.  I think when I am writing.  I have learned a lot with the photographs and have miles to go but am enjoying the process.  There is no "goal" just the process and what it brings to me in the moment so by that same token, if it was gone tomorrow, I would be fine.  I would just find something else to address the need within to write, to create, etc.


OK that is me Bliss Windlow of Blissimo.  If you have any questions or want to draw me a picture or something please feel free.  Oh and I like cake.

Canadian White.

fic1

We Canadians have an affinity with white.

  fic4

It really contrasts our red noses in winter and our sunburns in summer. We are pasty and damn proud of it! (I mean in a completely humble and self-depreciating kind of proud way of course.)

I went to the doctor here in Australia to get the scoop on the whole skin cancer and thought she should check out my skin cause I had been here a couple of years.  She laughed at me. And so did all the staff. She said I would have to be here for probably another 30 years lying out in the sun every day to worry and then she asked if there is any sunshine in Canada at all. 

Yes there is.  It is just that we tend not to get naked in the 40 below sunshine when the snowdrifts cover the house.

My hubby suggested my white skin acts like a shield against sunlight ... it just bounces off me ... but that was before he saw my red version of my body. He got out the marshmallows and invited friends over. I sat in the middle of the room.

fic2

We defiantly wear white way beyond Labour day ... on account of we live in the real world and not Second Life where you can change your skin tone like your clothes. If there was ever a contest for a million dollars and you won it by looking at a room full of naked people and being able to identify the Canadians ... you would be so thankful that we are white and pasty because you would be rich!!!

That is all ... I am done for now. More later on how Hockey has single-handedly made dentists rich, and how to kiss your toothless man.

I Almost Gave Up.

gdb3a

It took me so much time to get this post on here thanks to Flickr and its decision to make me prove how much I love it with my willingness to keep trying to get the damn pictures to load.

gdb1a

18 attempts on 3 different browsers later I found out, despite it telling me repeatedly that it could not load my pics, it "surprised" me with several copies of this set ... all uploaded!  Clearly the Flickr people monitoring the uploads being new recruits from the school for the blind or the "ass" scavenger hunt team that lost their flashlights.

I was going to write something witty and uplifting but I am not in the mood. I have hubby out searching the streets for a cat that I can kick ... and if any of you wanna complain about it, I am happy to kick you too. You're not my mother and you are not the boss of me.

Apparently that role is currently being played by Flickr which has made me her bitch.

My Brother is Heartless.

iaw4a

My brother likes to spout off obtuse facts about anything, meant to impress us all into awedome. That is where you fall on your knees with your mouth open and just feel incredible that you are in the presence of sheer genius.

iaw1a

I can't believe I wrote that last sentence and did not burst out laughing. It is not often I use my brother and awesome in the same sentence, even when being sarcastic. It is out of respect for the word and the fact that I, a vessel of great awesomeness, take that responsibility seriously.

Some people wear medals ... I wear awesomeness.

Pinned to my left breast ...

over my heart ...

sometimes glue gunned ...

Anyway he informed us that some female moths do not have wings and they just crawl around.

 Doesn't that technically make them a caterpillar?

I am not saying he was wrong, it is just the image of someone picking up caterpillars and looking for evidence that they are not a caterpillar but a wingless moth makes me feel incredibly sad for some people. I am weeping now.

I am.

Don't mock me with your doubt.

iaw6a

I just did not care particularly at the time he shared it being as I had just discovered a caterpillar on my cauliflower on my plate and wingless female moth or caterpillar ... who gave a shit?? I was too busy standing on my chair, screaming and throwing my deformed moth across the room.  The least he could have done was scream with me.

There is an unwritten rule somewhere that when a brother is involved with a dispute between his sister and a wingless caterpillar ... he should always side with his sister.

My brother is an epic failure.  And now a moth is dead.

What kind of life was that for her???

This is a really sad sad story isn't it??

Lace Gloves are So Elegant.

rrl1a

My grandmother was big on gloves ... especially on little girls hands for church on Sundays.

rrl2a


Once the mittens came off that is. Let's face it, lace mittens with bows would not be practical in the frozen Northland ... and nobody knits that well to make practical heavy wool look "pretty" which is why we settle for Moose heads knit into our sweaters etc. No-one critiques the art of a moose. You can fudge the nose, the antlers, the proportions , , ,  and people are very forgiving. They are much harsher critics for pretty or cute.  Notice that most people have not included a "moose" category in their Pinterest accounts. There is a reason for that. People on the prairie look at warm sweaters and mittens with their moose motif and do the head nod ...

"Moose eh?"

"Yup."

"Nice!"

And then we pass the coffee and the donuts.

So once the spring thaw hit and she could be accused of causing her grand daughter to lose her fingers due to frost bite, my grandmother insisted on white lace gloves. I hated them but every freaking picture of me is in a darn stupid dress AND white lace gloves.  We were on the freaking prairies for crying out loud ... white gloves???

Finally, I couldn't take it any more and I put my foot down and said "No more!!" I demanded to know what the big deal was with wearing stupid white lace gloves to church.

I was 33 years old and enough was enough.

She told me that it was the best way of keeping kids from picking their noses.

rrl3a
 
Which made sense where my brother and grandfather were concerned . . . and I thanked her for that and thought perhaps they should continue to wear theirs but . . .  I handed mine in ... only after I signed a legal document promising my fingers would not go anywhere near my nose.
 
I told her not to worry, I would knit some moose mittens during the sermon.
