Ironic photo


As I was leaving the disappointing lecture that I wrote about a week ago, a reporter from a local paper took my photograph and name.  No one else had even asked my name although people were distantly polite to me and one nice lady at the table where I sat chatted with me about local history.  However I think it very ironic that the weekend edition of the paper made me the cover girl for the article about the event.  Here I am in my quilted jacket like an advertisement for the whole thing.  Was it the Jabberwock that "chortled"?  Well, when I saw this that's what I did.  I'm even relatively happy with the photo and it's been a long time since I've really liked having my picture taken.

June -- very attractive photo. Your jacket is gorgeous. I love unique clothes. I had a quilted vest many years ago but for the life of me I do not know what happened to it. Sure wish I still had it. -- barbara

Well, you certainly look good and obviously looked the part. Now, if they had only asked you to present the talk about quilts, it would've been VERY good.

Thanks, Barbara -- I'll take a commission to make you a vest if you let me know.

You're right, Nellie. I could have given the talk -- a more informed one. And that's not bragging.
