Yesterday, I was reading Curtise's blog http://sopastcaring.blogspot.com/ where she wondered if her pinafore was, "Too Lolita." I can assure you, it is not-my mother would never have worn a pinafore! Yes, her name really was Lolita, and no, she wasn't amused when the book was published, though mercifully she was already out of school by that time. Anyway, it does tickle me to hear my mother's name being used that way. It did however cross my mind that perhaps this dress was too short, and schoolgirl-ish when I selected it today. I don't think my mother would have worn this either.

We hit a couple thrift stores as well, and I came home with three pair of really pretty gloves, a beaded eyeglass case from the 40's, and some other small items. The kid who was working the register kept looking at what I was buying and saying, "Far out man", and "Whoa, those are really freaky fer sure." He looked about 16. I didn't know people still said, "far out." I'm not sure they do.
This weekend we have Soylent Green to watch for family movie night. I wanted to do a double feature with Omega Man, but the library didn't have it. I may need to go on line and buy it.
Hope your weekend is bear-free.
