A little like Erma Bombeck, a little Dear Abby, a whole lot of fun as Helen Hartman holds nothing back giving timeless advice with vintage attitude and a sip from her sweet thermos o' gin.
Makes a nice veil!
Maybe I should wear it to church?
Adorable! :) I LOVE Kentucky Derby Pie. I miss KY. I need to scoot over there!
I haven't had Derby pie in a while - maybe today is the day!
Nice improvising! :)
Try as I could, I couldn't get off the ground in that thing!
Hilarious, because I remember doing that when I was young!I might add we lived across the street from a convent.
LOL - we weren't Catholic, no convent in sight but man I wanted to be Sister Batrille!
You make me smile, and who doesn't need that?!
To quote Buddy the Elf - Smiling is my favorite.
Helen, You kill me.. That is a funny photo. I love visiting your site...sometimes I have trouble getting here and leaving a comment..it's my computer,shhh , it's on it's last legs. xoxo,Susie
Oh no! I know how that goes, had to get a new computer a few months ago and STILL not used to it.
You are so funny! What a joy to come and see what you post! Have a wonderful Derby weekend and please, do tell, what a Derby Pie is for us westerners who don't know!Robin
Derby Pie is basically a pecan pie with a chocolate layer. I have never been able to eat more than a bite or two.
Best Derby Hat, by far! Also a pretty good Queen of England hat! Wouldn't old Bets look grand in that?! :-) Happy KY Derby Day, Helen...will be watching from Vegas - Tanya
I can totally see her highness with a can can on her noggin!
Ah yes, or a pillow case. They made excellent flying nun hats.
Also bridal veils or princess hair!
YOU make my day!
I don't know whether to thank you or apologize :)
Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!!! Have a fun weekend!!!
Too funny! Happy Derby Day and Happy Pink Saturday!
HPS to you too!
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
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.
You are such the trip! Thanks for the laugh! Enjoy the race!
Thanks - actually we're going to see Ironman 3 instead. No lines at the theatre!
Ha!!! I am so looking forward to seeing you on TV in that thing :)
My daughter didn't even want me to go out on the deck. If I was on TV she'd faint.
hahahahaha...Gotta love it.Happy pinks!xoxo's
Thanks HPS to you!
Dear Helen...That half slip, it was once a staple in every girls dresser!I do remember putting the half slip on my head for a wedding veil! lolYou crack me up.xo Tami
We're wearing dresses more at our house, well the females are, and have found half slips hard to find.
Would make a excellent wedding veil!Absolutely fantastic. *heheheh*
HaHaHa! Love this post and missed stopping by last week because I was sidetracked! Happy Mother's Day to you!
