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...

Victoria Beckham's New Line

Supposedly "moderately priced" ($435 - $1,250) - well, not for the likes of me, that's for sure!  But I give applause to the lady, she has a knack for designing extremely wearable clothes.  Kudos to Victoria Beckham - actually designing clothes for real women!

Who Wore It Better?

  As of tonight just a few minutes ago, fans voted 51% to Beckham versus 49% to Williams. I prefer Williams' look (she wore it to a pre-award tea party in Great Britain in January, 2012), but I'm a more formal type of gal :)

I love this dress because Beckham shows that it can be worn in two very different ways:  fun and flirty (her look) -- notice the pink soles on her ridiculous platform shoe-booties, and Williams' more sophisticated look in classic black and white.

Now, if only women would start wearing hosiery again!  Bare-nekked legs = Epic FAIL!
