Not Your Typical July Day
Peaches that my friend, Jane, from Mah Jong brought back from Porter - the Oklahoma Peach Capitol.
And then there was One. (Right after taking this picture, I gave in to temptation!)
The rest of the day was not typical. Flush from the success of polishing my Silver Beehive Tea Set and having it remain shiny for months in this dry, dry climate of Oklahoma, I drug out all the silver jewelry I owned, both super cheap and fairly pricey (for me, that is) (it is Silver, after all - which at the best is still not too expensive) - and polished away. I had picked up a few new $1 pairs of earring at the Goodwill, which now look like $40 earrings. (Note to self - Need to mail these off as gifts. People will be impressed.)
Then my friend Carol came by on her way to the Chiropractor and picked me up. She dropped me at one of her favorite stores (Belts, on 51st) with the most interesting shoe selection. The three pairs of shoes were each less than $18 - and they are good brands. The Andre Assous would have been over $100 in Canvas, and this was a leather pair - named: Beryl. (Really, a shoe style with my name, in my size in a fabulous brand!) This was another of those oddly creepy places which I have had friends show me, that I would never have found on my own. Is Tulsa the only place with these establishment? I have never found anything like them before. Like a Goodwill, with all new stuff. Good Times!
