All those are true in Kentucky, too.
But y'all, there is one no-fail, unmistakable, eye-popping sign of the arrival of Spring in my neck of the woods. It's the annual appearance of Derby hats in the stores.
|Just a small section of a local store that sells Derby hats AND has |
classes in how to make your own.
Lordy, I am SO tempted!!
I hope that it you click on this photo, you can see it in a larger format.
It's eye candy. Trust me.
|Yes, that price tag reads "$245". It costs a lot to wrestle the feathers off those birds!|
This plan may be scuttled if I get in trouble for taking pictures of hats in the stores. I caught a little stinkeye from a sales lady in one department store who obviously thought I looked a little suspicious, skulking around with phone in hand. Perhaps I should talk my daughter into making a trip home soon -- she can model the hats and give me an excuse to have a camera in hand.
Mwahahahahaaaaaaaaaa! I feel so stealthy!
