When I am an old woman I shall wear purple.
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
Anyone who know me, knows my distrust of Internet searches and Wikipedia. If I want to know something, I go to the library and look it up in an Encyclopedia (singing the Encyclopedia Song as I spell the word). But I must admit to looking up the Red Hat Society on Google since I was only slight fuzzy on its history. I knew that it was inspired by a brilliant J. Joseph poem and that it started out in Fullerton, California, the city where I was born. Wikipedia says Sue Ellen Cooper was the founder. Who am I to argue? It says anyone over 50 could join. So I am qualified agewise. What I couldn't find was where to go to join them. I hope I don't get unqualified for the fact that my Red Hat most certainly does suit me - it being an old Beret and me having been raised by a French mother.
