THE EMPRESSES NEW CLOTHES

Last week my sister and I went on my annual shopping trip. I am ready for Ron's ship reunion next week in Corpus Christi. It is all I can do to keep from changing clothes every five minutes as I plan on what to wear to each event.

Last year I went to the reunion in old clothes. It was just a couple of months after my mom's death and my sister and I did not have the energy or will to go shopping. It was a good feeling this year to be back on track and we felt mom laughing at her silly girls acting like teenagers again.

Even with my injured rotor cuff, I managed to try on everything my sister brought to me. We're a great team and if she did not shop with me, I wouldn't get anything because I'm a terrible shopper.

For a week Chicken Annie will disappear and The Empress of NOL-NOC Estates will hob-nob with the Navy:-)

  4. I hope that Corpus has not born much of Ike. I just saw a whole series of photos of Houston and Galveston and they were horrible.
