When We Last Saw Our Heroine . . .

She was wrapping up a pretty fun and full week.  I had another trip for pie and coffee.  There were a few tables of "young folk" there this time (high school seniors-ish) who gave me a second glance, but said nothing. Then there was more time spent downtown. The Bloomsday Runners statues - downtown landmark   Hoopfest - the nation's biggest 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament - getting set up Outside the old Masonic Temple - we both were a little stiff   Does this store make me look fat?  The true highlight of Friday, however, comes with no photos.  I had connected with another Girl Like Me on line and came to find out my male side is friends with his wife!!

Being July, Sarah insisted that wearing pantyhose would not only be uncomfortable but would say to other women that I was not one of them.  So I ventured out bare legged for the first time, and felt rather naked! 😏 We started at a vintage clothing shop, browsing through lots of fashion from the 60's to the 00's (that doesn't look right, but you get what I mean), but I have alw
