Red Hat Society

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves

So begins the poem that inspires the women of a certain age who are members of the red hat society.

We used to get many a red hat lady in the small British tea room I worked in years ago. Love those smiling faces.

Jack said...

Good for them. Nice, bright and colorful photo.

Thought for a minute the lady on the left with the bright smile was a member of the cast at Disneyland :-D

I love that poem :)

I am not at 'that age' yet and I am not sure I would have the eccentric balls to pull it off.....but it gives hope that at least we won't be invisible

Irina said...

Happy faces. Great shot.

I've seen many red had ladies in the Phoenix area but, I've never seen one with purple hair and Mickey Mouse ears! Now that is real chutzpah!

Emm said...

Ha! That is so cute! I would love to do something grand and fun like that when I am older.

Now if this won't make one smile, nothing will!

I happened to be in Halifax, Nova Scotia a few years ago when the Red Hat Society descended upon the town. It's something to see.

I never really understood the point of the red hat society..

Bob Crowe said...

Oh, we have them here, too. My daughter's godmother is one. A bit daft but joyous.

Leif Hagen said...

I love her purple wig and ears! They sure seem to be having a fun time! The Red Hat Society exists over here, too!
