No Derby Hat This Year

Loved Ones, remember when you were a kid and you'd put a half slip on your head and pretended to be The Flying Nun?




Me Neither!


Happy Derby/Pink Saturday, Ya'll

    1. Derby Pie is basically a pecan pie with a chocolate layer. I have never been able to eat more than a bite or two.

  12. So clearly I wasn't the only one who adored Sister Betrille so much, I believed I could fly. Once I realised it wasn't to be, I became Wonder Woman and enjoyed rounding up the sheep and chooks in the paddocks, wearing my sister's beloved brown knee boots, manure and all. xo

    1. I was such a romance dork I thought the sister should marry the guy who supported the convent. I didn't really get the nun thing.
