HAT LADIES……who did NOT make the cut!

These  sweet ladies are “pissed off”……

…..they did NOT make the cut for my new EASTER hat.

This group of ladies got a new face………..but are impatiently waiting for their HATS.

There are FOUR DOZEN more…….. hoping to be chosen.

Tom’s New HAT • A BOLERO

J J’s had been here on 5th Avenue since 1911……New York’s oldest continually running hat shop….it is the “GO TO” store for New              Yorkers seeking a new hat.

 

I went shopping there today for my new hat…….which I will decorate for this years EASTER PARADE on 5th Ave.

My new hat………..being steamed and cleaned…….by my very cute salesman.

[ OOPS….I can’t remember his name]

I LOVE my new black wool felt……… BOLERO.

These are some of the LOVELY LADIES that will be appearing on my new BOLERO.

My Easter hat from 2018…..will be retired.

The VESSEL at Hudson Yards

If you want a view of the HUDSON RIVER…..and you want to climh 152 flights of stairs…………and wait in line for your “ticket to climb”……….head on down to West 34th street.

Is it a honeycomb….or a……….New Yorkers are calling it whatever they want.

It weights 60 tons and cost $150 million.

It is part of a new mega-mall on the Hudson River………even Neiman Marcus has opened a store there………….and 30 new restaurants are scattered about the buildings…….all very UPSCALE.   Tres chic…..and expensive.

PINK CLOUDS over Manhattan

From my terrace….it was a show!  The yellow turned to PINK………..and just kept getting pinker and pinker and darker………..strange but beautiful.

This skyscraper on 57th street is called the WATERFALL……..the windows are hundreds of shades of blue and green and when the sun hits it just right………WATERFALL effect.

This is why New Yorkers do NOT eat at Chic-fil-a

And if you work there and they find out you are Lesbian or Gay…

you are FIRED.

 

LEE the Birder and ARTIST

My friend….LEE……..a birder and artist……..spends a lot of time in Central Park

painting the birds in WATERCOLOR.

When I see her in the park………I always buy one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

CARY GRANT and his Lover RANDOLPH SCOTT

ROSY CHEEKS ………….

Every queen loves feathers on his nightgown.

When the girls get together………sparks fly.

“Destination Tokyo”a submarine war film 1943.

The smile that drove the “girls”wild.

His Hollywood shot for his fan club…….. dreamy girls everywhere cried.

It’s that TIE TAC that dates this photo………

She does NOT “light his fire”.

The chisel that sizzles……..

CARY and his lover……..RANDOLPH

Oh Randy…..oh la la
