Friday 55

It's time to play "Can you write a story in 55 words?". When you do, be sure to let the G-Man know, then visit as many contributors as you can. Think of it as an adult Easter Egg Hunt.

She stood before the mirror, trying on hats.

There was the Greta Garbo look

The Ode to the 50s

The Cowgirl

Beach Bunny

Birthday Girl

Southern Alaskan

The Witch

The Halo

But when she found the photo of her
last Easter Bonnet,
which resembled a flying saucer...

...she decided to give up hats all together!

Nessa said...

I think they are all adorable. I wish we still wore bonnets.

GM said...

You absolutely win for the best multimedia 55 of the week. This was so enjoyable!

My 55 is here in case you'd like to read.

Ah Brian, I couldn't find photos of the really AWFUL one which my usually talented Grandma had made. We looked like Little House on the Prairie Orphans. :)

Nessa...seems my fashion sense peaked at age 10. :)

Thanks brought back some fun memories. Off to visit you now.

Monkey Man said...

Those hats are great - don't give up wearing hats. Great 55. My 55 is HERE.

RNSANE said...

Very cute 55. You were delightful!

Brighid said...

Fun 55, and I liked your hats, they show character...

LOL...that is just too funny. Love it and well done. What a trip down memory lane.

Susan at Stony River said...

Well at least the flying saucer looked better than Pilgrim Girl on the other side of Daddy LOL.

Hope, all those hats are a sign of CLASS! They're great!

g-man said...

I like this 55,
simple, fun, and remarkable!

Happy Easter!

Ji said...

here is mine!
thank you for stopping by.

Titus said...

What a great hat tour! I'm with Susan on flying saucer vs. Pilgrim Girl.
I have a deep desire for my own Southern Alaskan though. Way cool!

Dulce said...

funny and lovely
great 55

EG Wow said...

Hahaha! I HATE hats, so I appreciated this story very much.

hope said...

Monkey Man, the only hat I wear now is when it snows. Meaning I wore one this winter for the first time in 10 years. :)

RNSANE: I keep looking at that little girl and wondering what she was thinking. :)

Brighid: I think they show that Mom liked dressing me up like a doll. ;)

Thom, it was a trip all right! Can you imagine anyone wear little white cotton gloves for Easter today?

Susan, that's "Little Sis" when she was actually little...she outgrew me pretty fast! That picture makes me squirm because I remember that dress when I got the flu. To this day I hate grey wool!

G-Man, it's my Easter Egg for you. ;)

Ji: Thanks. I'll be checking y'all out on Saturday.

Titus, the "southern alaskan" is ironically one of my favorite pictures and yet I barely remember what the COAT looked like. Just that hood. :)

Dulce; thanks! It is fun to take a look back at "traditional" Easter.

EGWow: I rarely wear hats these days and I was amazed at how many childhood pictures had me wearing one!

Buzzard said...

Don't kid yourself, you still wear many hats; there just not as visible as they once were.

Mojo said...

A hat's a hat for a' that. Enjoyed the trip down nostalgia lane.

And the "Alternate Endings" thing doesn't actually have an expiration date. Or any other "rules" really, other than the ones that apply to 55 in general. If you feel the muse speaking to you, now or later fire away. Three people have sent links so far. I'm keeping them on the page where the setup story is and I'll post any newcomers in upcoming 55FFF posts.

Alice Audrey said...

Hey, I like those flying saucers. Can't figure out what I did with my own, though.

Larry said...

Hey whats wrong with a flying saucer anyway? If you still had it you could come N seen the man in the moon. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment as always I love every word. As people say I bring Hope to "This Blog Of Mine" winksNsmiles@U

Hats! I am glad they were out of fashion before I had to deal with them! I enjoyed this and the photos.
