The Heat Is On

If it wouldn't have been in the dead of summer I would have dressed for the occasion.


But I just couldn't see me investing money in a poodle skirt, bobby socks, and a pair of saddle oxfords for one morning of fun...  not when temps were pushing ninety and I knew darn well that I would literally die in anything other than sandals.  Now if this 50's extravaganza would have happened in the fall or winter I would have considered it..  I'm always ready to join in on the fun! 

 Costume judging wasn't till one o'clock anyway and we were making a bee line for our backyard pool by then.  


But it was a relaxing morning browsing the antique market in Hancock, Md. and I even made a few purchases.  The oldies blasting from the speakers took us back to a simpler time.  
Oh, to be young again!


Anytime Gary or I pick up a hat to model, the other always teases.  "Head lice! Head lice!"  Hey, ya never know where that hat might have been!  

But there we are...  always living on the edge.


No, I did not buy the hat...  though it was so me...   

But I did take advantage of the 10 cent root beer float and the free popcorn.  Both were soooooo totally yummy!  A perfect morning.


By the time we made it home the heat was on!


 And the pool was calling our name.

Check out miss nosey peering through the gate to see what's going on.
