When I was visiting the family in Ohio for an extended stay, one of the last days I was there we went to Von Maur, a lovely department store in Columbus at the Polaris Mall.
Maura and I saw all the elegant Spring/Easter hats on display. She tried on a gray one that matched her Ohio State Swim shirt. A gracious salesperson asked if we needed any help and of course, we did not. But she didn’t seem worried about trying on a hat.

Growing up, almost all women in church wore hats.
.The Kentucky Derby, the first Saturday in May, is a place to wear a fashionable hat. Or a Derby party as you watch the race on TV. You see Royal Wedding attendees sporting stylish hats. I wish I’d looked inside the hats to see where they are made. Do you own a hat and on what occasion do you wear it?
Putting on a hat can change your whole persona, help you feel dressed to the nine. The epitome of dressing up in style.
“To the nine” is an English idiom meaning “to perfection” or “to the highest degree” or to dress “buoyantly and high class”. In modern English usage, the phrase most commonly appears as “dressed to the nine” or “dressed up to the nine”.

These bright colors caught my eye as I walked by the storefront of La Feria on Walnut Street.
It’s a restaurant too.

Erika’s cousin Shannon captured the store exploring we did. I missed National Sloth Day last month.
I captured the “found grocery list” in the cart.
What fun to find and read other people’s grocery lists

This afternoon I left a Shop ‘n Save where I don’t usually shop. I saw these eyeballs staring out of the dark frames.
The building is unoccupied. Just thinking about why they were painted there.
