polka dots & green

Good Monday!

I’m on a roll!  Another outfit with a pop of color!  Pastel green with polka dots!?  Hmm…I’m not sure what to think of this combo.

I got tired of posing. 🙂

See ya!

I’m linking up with Visible Monday and Monday Mingle and .  Go check out the ladies!

I got this email from a friend and wanted to pass it on…I love it!

OLD PERSON PRIDE

I’m passing this on as I did not want to be the only old person receiving it. Actually, it’s not a bad thing to be called, as you will see.

  • Old People are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem. Old People remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment. They know the words and believe in them.
  • Old People remember World War II, Pearl Harbor , Guadalcanal , Normandy and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. They remember the 50 plus Peacekeeping Missions from 1945 to 2005, not to mention Vietnam .
  • If you bump into an Old Person on the sidewalk he will apologize. If you pass an Old Person on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Old People trust strangers and are courtly to women.
  • Old People hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.
  • Old People get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and children and they don’t like any filth or dirty language on TV or in movies.
  • Old People have moral courage and personal integrity. They seldom brag unless it’s about their children or grandchildren.
  • It’s the Old People who know our great country is protected, not by politicians, but by the young men and women in the military serving their country. 
  • This country needs Old People with their work ethic, sense of responsibility, pride in their country and decent values. 
We need them now more than ever.  I was taught to respect my elders. It’s just getting harder to find them.
 Thank God for Old People

Wishing you wonderful week, and thanks for visiting!

    • Thank you! I thought it was a great list as well.
      Green and polka dots…I would have never put this together before blogging. It’s kinda fun sometimes just to play dress up! 🙂

  1. You were smart to come up with a look that works for both Visible Monday and EBEW! In looking at the outfit, the dots are either turning green or making the pale green jacket look almost white. What to you do to keep your legs in such great shape?

    • Hi Terri,
      I actually planned the green outfit knowing EBEW was the next day. I don’t have a lot of time for photos so this worked out great. Haha…I thought the same thing when looking at the photos.
      Thank you for the compliment…I work out (not lately tho) with kettlebells when I can. It’s a great overall body workout without putting too much strain on my joints like running (which I gave up after experiencing some pain in my knee).

  2. loove the mint! It’s my favorite color this season:):)!!! beautiful and i love the contrast created by polka dots

  3. very classy and elegant look …at the same time, the polka dots add some cute touches to the outfit. I enjoy talking to elderly…they have so much experience and knowledge to impart!

    • It sure felt like spring today! So nice outside…too bad I was inside all day. 😦
      Polka dots remind me of the 60’s when women were prim and proper.. ? I have no idea what I’m rambling about…
      Anyhoo, I hope you had a good day!

    • Hi Alicia!
      Thanks so much! The skirt is quite light, feminine and flirty. It would probably look fantastic on a younger gal, with it shortened, combined with a white t-shirt and a colored belt. I just might have my daughter try that!

  4. Yes! You look fresh and vibrant like a spring flower. That sounds very cheesy, but it’s true!

    I have a special place in my heart for our seniors and adore this list. Thank you for sharing it with all of us. xo

    • Hi Elisa!
      Thanks! That was my intent. It was so pretty this weekend…got the spring fever!
      I love old folks (the ones I know that is), they are a different breed…I wanna be just like them!

  5. I really like it! Also, I now have more appreciation of myself, being older and all!!! Love the cute animal post. Enjoy the day.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it very much!
