Hola!

Today is the Super Duper Blue Red Full Eclipse Partial Eclipse Moon, depending on where you may be viewing from.

Three years ago this day was my last day of working and I retired after 46 years of full-time work. I've enjoyed every single moment of my retirement since then - three years and hoping for twenty more, we'll see how things go...

February and March can be cruel months in southeastern Wisconsin where I live. January itself was nutso here weather-wise, with two separate thaws. I don't ever remember getting two January thaws before, and many years none happened at all.

Before I know it I'll be headed to Las Vegas to visit my friends and celebrate some sunshine and warm weather, and see a show (I always try to squeeze one in). Meanwhile, I am continuing, slowly, to make this smaller retirement ranch into a home that makes me smile in every room. I still have lots to do, including major painting projects. I keep putting them off. Seems at 66 I'm not so keen on painting as I was at 36. Gee, I wonder why...

Why Do They Do This?

This dress has some possibilities for "commercial" production - minus the crap hanging down on the hem and adding some inches to the hemline.

The dress is - eh - but the look whoever gave to this model is grotesque.  Please, is it really necessary to ugly up a woman in order to make a "statement" on the runway?  And just what was the "statement," anyway?

My first thought upon looking at this image from Vogue.com was that the dress and look were created by a gay man designer who really really hates women, even if they are flat-chested with bad legs.  Come on, blue lips?  Is this some bizarre take-off on yesterday's "tribal" look?  Oh please. 

Turns out the designer is Mary Katranzou.  Is Mary a real she or a convert?  Guess it doesn't make much difference, either way, I think she hates women.  If she liked women and if she was comfortable herself with being a woman, she would never put a female model in such make-up and she would not turn out tramp-trash for the runway.
