Red Hat Outing, New Book

Thursday, January 27, 2011
The Wild West Women of Weatherford Red Hat Chapter made a fine showing at Janell's Ladies Wear in Aledo, Texas on Wednesday, January 26, 2011. Jannell has a beautiful home in which the upstairs is set up as her ladies wear shop. 18 of us shopped to our hearts content and there were very few who didn't find something wonderful to wear. She also stocks jewelry, shoes and boots, scarves and handbags. Since this is the end of the season she had a spectacular sale going on and several of us took full advantage of this.

Once the shopping and trying on was complete, we all went downstairs to enjoy a lovely luncheon of chicken with bow tie pasta, green salad, ice tea and coffee with a scrumptious cake dessert. I took some photos of the tables before everyone got seated because everything was so elegant and I wanted to capture this. Janell has 12 grandchildren, but you'd never know it by looking at her. She has long beautiful dark hair and is quite slim and trim. I came home with a very stylish jacket, two skirts and a shell/jacket combo. I can't wait for her to come back from market with new spring fashions.

If you are interested in checking out Janell's Ladies Wear in Aledo, call Janell at 817-599-8739. She especially caters to groups and serves a free lunch as well.


I just finished reading an absolutely stunning book by Laura Hillenbrand called "Unbroken" a World War II story of survival about Louis Zamperini, an Olympic runner in the prewar Germany Olympics. You will read of some real horror in Japanese POW Camps and God had to be with him for him to have survived this torture. Louis Zamperini still walks among us at 93 years of age. Ms. Hillenbrand is the author of Sea Biscuit and suffers from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. As a result, she spends a lot of time in bed, but she managed to complete "Unbroken" definitely adding to our reading enjoyment. It is published by Random House and I purchased mine from As I did, I'm sure you will come away from this book with tremendous appreciation for our veterans and the atrocities they endured fighting for our freedom.

This is all I have to say for now.
