There was an old woman who lived in a shoe,
She had so many children she didn't know what to do.
She gave them some broth without any bread
Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.
For some reason I saw this snapshot and the first two lines of the nursery rhyme kept running through my brain. Then I went in search of the last few lines and thought "Whoa!" I hadn't remembered the violence in the rhyme.
The reality of this photo is unknown, but I'm willing to bet she's not standing in front of a giant shoe. Most likely this nice lady received this lovely chenille bathrobe as a gift and stepped outside to have her photo taken. I'm thinking it was probably one of those pretty pastel chenille colors. I'm hoping it was pink or green. Chenille. I miss chenille. I do have an old chenille bedspread that is still in beautiful condition. I wonder why it went out of fashion. My useless thought for the day: "Chenille was fun." You may quote me.
