I checked on the spelling of broach/brooch and both are acceptable. I choose to use broach and I don’t even know why. It seems a lot of fellow bloggers are posting broach photos. Especially memorable are Wendy’s photos. She has a lot of broaches. Some really cool ones. This whole broach thing started with a blog by Romi. First I will post the photo of mine then it will need a short explanation.
The one on the top left is a skunk and not really what you would consider a broach. But you can pin it to stuff and my daughter bought it for me after I got sprayed by my friendly neighborhood skunk. The one next to it she bought me in Provincetown. It is handmade and looks great on my black coat which I don’t wear too often because I am always too hot for it. The one next to that one is a custom piece specially made by one of my daughter’s bosses for a customer who never showed up for it. They gave it to me because they know I like strange and weird stuff. The one on the left on the bottom row was given to me about 35 years ago by my father-in-law who is now in a nursing home and is 93 years old. My wasband and I used to have an English Setter so Grampa got that for me. I love that man just like a father and even though I have been divorced from his son for almost 20 years, he and I are still and always will be very close. The middle one is my girl scout pin. Yes, I still have it. Again it’s not a broach but it pins to stuff. The last one is a replica of the Elven pin that the Nine wore on their cloaks in the movie “The Lord of the Rings”. Of course, my daughter gave me that.
I don’t know that any of them would attract a man. More likely scare the hell out of him.
My daughter and her husband leave for Las Vegas tomorrow for ten days.
I’m already missing them. I like the hustle and bustle of having them around. My wasband won’t be around much. He has a three day baseball card show this weekend, then it’s chasing birds all week and then to his girlfriend’s house. I will get time off from cooking and shopping. I guess now I won’t have any excuse not to do all the projects I’ve talked about.
I haven’t been on the computer much in the last couple of days because I’ve been so busy doing errands for my daughter for her trip. The computer is also extremely slow and we need to get more RAM for it and that is my job to figure out what to buy and have it put in. What computer wouldn’t be slow with 10,000 or more bird photos stored on it. The wasband took over 400 photos yesterday of a flock of Bohemian waxwings. They came out absolutely incredible. I’ll post one or two tomorrow. I have to get it from his side of the computer somehow to my side.
I know she’ll be gone for only ten days and I’m happy she is going but I’m feeling a little down about being alone. Oh well, I’ll get over it. I’m invited to a party Saturday to one of her friend’s house. PARTAY!!!!
This is the way they PARTAY on CAPE COD. Though I personally have never been to a party like this.
