It's Worldwide Hoot Day

What in the world is Worldwide Hoot Day????  According to the Red Hat Society it is: "Hoot" is our word for an unstructured and extremely informal gathering of RHS Members. It's usually a one day event.

Our group didn't have a 'hoot' but we did have a city-wide picnic this week with members from all the local groups in Two Rivers attending! Well, they called it a picnic....Even though the weather was beautiful it was held indoors. Why?

  • what if it rains?
  • it might be too windy to hang the decorations
  • maybe it will be too hot
My thoughts are that the older ladies want to be in a controlled environment. But me? I don't think it's a picnic if it's inside! As an alternative if it rains it is necessary but when the weather permits Why sit inside??? In previous years we've been at a park, I prefer the one in the middle of town so we are visible....good publicity, ya know?

When the weather is nice I like to be outside! I'm glad we don't have a/c because I like to have my windows and doors open. When I lived in a house where I closed the drapes at night the first thing I did in the morning was to open them.   .....just sayin'

The 'picnic' is usually a good time.....We played a game to get us to mingle, but I wasn't in the mood to I didn't.

 I did add some purple 'hi-lights' to my hair for the occasion and wore my best (and only) feather earrings.

The food for the event is catered in and it was tasty! and bountiful! We divided into teams and played a game where you had to open a caramel while wearing work gloves. Some gals had theirs open in no time, not me.

 Guess my favorite game was Pin the Feather on the Hat. It's always funny to watch people do that.

Tomorrow I am going to a real picnic- birthday party for my 4 year old granddaughter. It should be fun!

  1. I think I would have preferred to have the picnic outside too. I think you assessment a about wanting a controlled environment was right on...but sounds like you enjoyed it a bit.
