I could be Scarlett, but I want Dorothy's ruby shoes

I live in Windy Alley.
To deny it, is like denying that my hair looks like I just got off a motorcycle ride and wore no helmet.
I wear a toque in June while I work on my garden. Every coat I buy has to have the type of lapels you can whip up and hide behind in case the wind comes up. Tumbleweed rolling down my road is normal.

This week we had 100 km/h winds (or 62 mph).
And I was outside.
I know, foolish girl.
But I felt I must go out.
It was important.
Vital, even.
Crucial.

Buying more toilet paper always is.

But it left me feeling much like a character in a novel. I found an archived picture of me that will help you pick which character I am most like.

1. Scarllett O'hara in Gone With the Wind
2. Dorothy from Wizard of Oz who is most notably 'not in Kansas anymore'.
3.Captain Hook meets Hair Spray (You can't stop the beat, people)

You think my past mustache woes would leave me alone for this photo? But, no siree!

Hey girl, so I usually take a pic put together a header in like publish or draw and then I take that pic over to picnik.com add the pic and you can edit pics there then you can also take them over to edit and add words. When you get over there and if you get lost (which I'm sure you'll be fine) just email me and I'll help you out a little more if you need it - BUT picnik has a lot of cool stuff and it is really easy to spend hours there. Happy Sunday, The Lady
