It took me a week to respond to comments on last week’s post. What a slacker! I’m so sorry! Mom is here, though,
Oh, look at that hummingbird out the window flitting from yellow blossom to yellow blossom (on some sort of tree or huge bush we have), drinking out of each little cup :).
Is it worse to interrupt oneself or someone else?
Anyway, Mom is here, and I am trying to keep up with her. Thanksgiving coming up and then her birthday party a few days later.
Saturday night we attended a bat mitzvah shindig. Second best part was the martini bar.
They offered lemondrop, cosmo, gin, and one other kind–vodka ones? The chocolate fountain wasn’t bad either.
The best part of the night was I found myself a new OLD HAT. If you recall I was in love with that fishing hat I got in New Orleans and lost in Tampa. I first wrote about it here: A Tip O My Hat.
When the DJ started the music, he turned on all manner of flashing lights. Ms. Complicated Migraine here can’t tolerate those. I asked the event planner if she had a hat with brim I could wear. She pulled one off the costume stand for me.
Later they said it looked so good–so RIGHT–on me that I could keep it. Hahahaha. If you want to see it on me, I may or may not post a pic on my Instagram account (catpoems).
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL WHO CELEBRATE! XOXOXOXO

So happy about the hat. You wear them well. Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Birthday to Mom.
Hahaha, yes, the right hat is so exciting to me! Thank you for the well wishes. You have a meaningful Thanksgiving, Cheryl!
Love it! Too much fun! Looking forward to the picture of you in the hat…Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy the time with your mom over this holiday season.
LOL, I put it up over there. It will medically disappear at some point haha! Thank you so much! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
The chocolate fountain sounds good to me, but congrats on the hat. 😉
Enjoy the visit with your mom and Happy Thanksgiving!
The man only let me put two items on my skewer!
It was not only sad but embarrassing. I was trying to add a marshmallow for my mother actually!
By the way, Happy Thanksgiving! XO
I thought of you the other day–saw a recipe in the paper for a gluten-free cake. If I can find it, I’ll send it to you. 🙂
Ok! Thank you!
I emailed it to you.
Enjoy the time with mom and the interruptions of the hummingbird!
Thank you, Maggie! Are there hummingbirds near you at least in the summer?
Yes, and feisty little things, they are!
They are so friendly to humans!
The hat looks like one that would be perfect for you!
What fun to have a martini bar to sample!! Very festive!!
Pretty and I were at a birthday dinner Saturday night, and I ordered a prickly pear martini. Delicious…but definitely had to sip.
It is pretty perfect :). It was so festive. Everything was beautiful and felt so fancy! Prickly pear, wow! Those are an Arizona thing!!!!
Oops, HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU AND T!!!!
I’ll bet you look great in the hat. Happy Thanksgiving. Luanne.
Haha, thanks, John! You have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
You as well, Luanne.
Flashing lights bother my eyes. I know it makes the occasion festive but I wish they wouldn’t do that. Glad the drinks were great! Love the hat.
I agree. A man at our table has epilepsy! It’s the WORST for epileptics. I think a DJ who uses them should put up a warning ahead of time–or maybe even invites should say so because if warned I can wear an appropriate hate and sunglasses. Haha, thanks!
I wore sunglasses at a concert in a dark theater because of them once and it helped to some degree. Still had a headache when I got out. I’m cautious about concerts now. When you are focusing on things like that you are not enjoying the music.
Oh me too! Had to turn around too. Concerts and indoor sports are baaaaad!
Wasn’t buying the apology until “Mom is here”
🤣🤣🤣🤣 that’s it!
Yes, it is! Thanks, Derrick!
I think you’re just a hat person. You’d look great in any hat, Luanne.
LOL! No, not any hat, but hats are one of my thangs, so to speak ;).
Great hat! Enjoy your time with your mother, Luanne.
Thanks, Jill! I hope your Thanksgiving is a happy one for you and your mom and your dad, too. And Mr. D, of course.
Sounds like a fun time you’re having with family. I’m sure that hat does suit you well. Happy Thanksgiving, Luanne!
Yes, it’s good to have family around. Haha, at least it suits me in my mind ;)! Happy Thanksgiving to you, Eilene!
Wow, Luanne, you are in for some fun after already having some fun. Lucky you! That martini bar! I hope you have a wonderful visit with your mom, and I hope her birthday will be wonderful. xo
We are enjoying Mom being here. The festivities sort of start tomorrow when daughter comes to help cook :). Love you!
Sounds like a fun time at the Mitzvah. 😉 I’m with you on the hat. I love what they brought you. I have to wear one for similar reasons. I would topple over from dizziness at the flashing lights. Riding in a car at night is an eye closed experience. Happy birthday to your mom and Happy Thanksgiving to you both, Luanne. We are going to be 4 single ladies here and keeping it simple. Lots of gratitude and food though.
See, I think there are a lot of us who can’t handle the lights. I’m pretty sure the man with epilepsy who was at my table and his wife left right away. They disappeared from our table, at least. Yes, night is awful. And now they have these huge flashing billboards in Phoenix and the back of the buses flash like that, too!!!!!!
Oh, your thanksgiving sounds like it will be marvelous! ENJOY!!!!!
A chocolate fountain, martini bar and a new (old) floppy hat all in one night?! Perfect.
It’s true!!!! hahah, you understand ;)!
Wonderful! How fun!
I couldn’t see the hummingbird and am now sad. LOL
What a great hat and how nice that they gave it to you! A martini bar sounds like my kind of bar 😉 (I prefer gin martinis, dry with olives, in case you have a need to know.) Have a wonderful holiday with your mom and family. Happy Birthday to your mom, too!
Coming right up! Haha, thank you so much and have a wonderful holiday tomorrow! xo
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and your mom’s birthday Luanne. Great hat!
Thanksgiving was wonderful, but we are still eating leftovers! The bday party is tomorrow. Thanks, Andrea!
You scored a hat at a party! That’s so cool. I think that might beat my grocery store hats 🙂
LOL! Yes, it’s a GREAT hat! We both love our hats :)!
I think that hat would look terrific on you! 🙂
