It Was A Tee Shirt Kinda Day
Do you ever get up and just want to wear a certain article of clothing you know you have stuffed away somewhere? Today I just felt like wearing my Niagra Falls tee shirt. I don't know why except that I like the softness of it and the color of kind of a cross between mauve and lavender. Before my husband died I had never been out of Texas other then to Mexico on my senior trip which is another story. After I was over my mourning period I started venturing out. You hear of all these wonderful dreamy places and an image sets into your brain. I went with John to Buffalo, New York to see his brother one year. Now you have to know this country girl does not know her Geography. We had been somewhere in his brother's car and I happened to spy a sign with an arrow pointing with the printing Niagra Falls. I had no idea I was anywhere near Niagra Falls. Heard about it all my life. People with money going there on their honeymoon. I was this close, I have to see it. The rest of the group had been there and didn't get too excited but agreed to take me there. They said we have to go to the Canada side. Its getting late and I just know this opportunity is going to slip by but we got there a little before dark. It was in December and it was so cold. Colder then this Texan has ever felt. It was too cold and late to go down below to see what ever you see down there so we went to a restaurant to eat and warm up. It was nice and we could see the lights on the falls across the way. Then we checked out all the tourist traps and I just had to buy a tee shirt to prove I had been to Niagra Falls even if it wasn't on a honeymoon. The picture has nothing to do with this entry other then I probably have enough tee shirts to wear a different one for a lot of days. Some days it will be a No-Where Oklahoma one. Yes there is a No-Where Oklahoma. I have the tee shirt to prove it. I wish I had one to prove I saw Amarillo by morning. I did, I really did, but most places are not what the idea in your head has been conjuring up so many years but I've got those tee shirts to prove a lot of things.
