Spunky Old Broads Month!!

OMGosh!! I almost missed it!
February is (almost was) Spunky Old Broads Month!
What is a Spunky Old Broad?
Basically a SOB (oooo... I wonder if they did that on purpose???) is woman 50 and over who is living life to the fullest. Age does not define her.

So all of you Spunky Old Broads out there.....stand up and be counted!

Shout out loud..."I'm an SOB and I'm proud!!" (hmmm...maybe not)

Warning - When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple

When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple
with a red hat that doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
and satin candles, and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I am tired
and gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
and run my stick along the public railings
and make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
and pick the flowers in other people's gardens
and learn to spit.

You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
and eat three pounds of sausages at a go
or only bread and pickles for a week
and hoard pens and pencils and beer nuts and things in boxes.

But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
and pay our rent and not swear in the street
and set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.
But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

(personally, I've decided to wear tie dye and lots of orange!)
