Proclamation for Celebration of Women Week

Monday, February 28, 2011
President Dottie Mills of Parker County Women's & Newcomers' Club had a conflict and could not attend this event at the Weatherford, Texas court house on the square. I stood in for her along with Joan Shaw and Dale Burns.
Judge Mark Riley is ill and Judge Pro Tem George A. Conley of the Commissioners Court issued the proclamation officially making the week of March 7-11, 2011 "Parker County Women's and Newcomers' Week", which coincides with "Celebration of Women" festivities all week long in Weatherford.
The Commissioners Court was crowded so quite a number of people were exposed to the information on the PCWNC. Who knows? Maybe we'll get some new members out of it!

Thanks to Doug Kerr for taking shots of the event.

This is all I have to say for now.

Red Hat Breakfast at IHOP

February 23, 2011
We have really been busy this month with Red Hat events, but they are always so much fun! Several members are going on a Red Hat cruise this month so we hurried up and put this together so those of us left behind wouldn't feel too left out. The IHOP always does a great job for breakfast and I don't think anyone was disappointed in their food. Everyone looked spiffy in their red and purple and took part in good conversation and laughter.

We will all be waiting to hear about the Red Hat adventures on the Caribbean Cruise.

This is all I have to say for now.

Red Hat Valentine Party, Theater Off the Square Production

Tuesday, February 22, 2011
The Wild West Women of Weatherford, Texas got together at Queen Of Gaudy Gabigail's home in her upstairs Red Hat party room for lunch and exchanging Valentines on February 16, 2011. We brought "white elephant" gifts and played the game "Left & Right". Since we didn't have something to read with a Valentine theme, Carla Kerr read a Christmas story about the Wright family and their were a lot of the words "Wright, right and left" in the story. The object is to pass the gift you are holding around the circle according the the reader's pronouncement of "right or left." It was a lot of fun and the gifts were really quite lovely.
Joyce Bruton, as usual, made a gorgeous Valentine Cake for the occasion and the food was delightful as always with this group.

One of the gals got really brave and showed off her celtic cross tattoo. (See Photos)

Doug and I, my son Russ and wife Kelley went together to see "Til Beth Do Us Part", a very funny Jones Hope Wooten comedy about relationships at Theater Off The Square in Weatherford, Texas. However, before the theater, we went to Whistle Hill Cafe first to enjoy a delicious lunch making it a well rounded Sunday.
The actors were quite good in their roles and had excellent comedic timing.

This is all I have to say for now.

Red Hat Pajama Breakfast

Saturday, February 12, 2011
If you weren't there, you really missed out this time! The Hoity Toity Red Hat Mamas Chapter of the Red Hat Society (Lewisville, Texas) really put on a great event with seventy people in attendance. Now, how many people do you know will get out of bed at 5:30 a.m. to drive 50 miles just to have fun? Either we are fractured or we know something nobody else does, because this is exactly what we did and we had a blast.
Seven members of Wild West Women of Weatherford Red Hat Chapter woke up, glitzed up and showed up in Grapevine, Texas at the Golden Corral Restaurant for the most fun pajama breakfast we've ever had. We played games and competed in contests from crazy hats to blowing the largest bubble gum bubble. We were judged on our pajama get-ups and crazy shoes. Not a soul left without winning some kind of prize. This is just the way Queen Zoomy Ward of that chapter does things. Creativity was alive and well in this group of Red Hatters.
I provided a door prize, a basket of goodies including an autographed copy of my memoir "The Cherokee Advantage" written under my pen name, C. C. Crittenden, and it was well received by the winner.
Can't wait for Queen Zoomy to host another event. I'll be there for sure! Before I forget, the food was just delicious. They have a young lady there making omelets and mine was the best I've ever had. The Golden Corral is cafeteria style and they have anything and everything one could ever think of for breakfast, not to mention that our room was just next door to the dessert bar. Yes, of course we had dessert at breakfast. We are, after all, Red Hatters!
