Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends – do you want to make the 1st Monday of the summer better?

Then do what I do, think of  your favorite summer songs, you know the ones that you just have to hear every year no matter how old it is…the ones you only listen to when it’s hot outside or when you’re on vacation?

Okay, now download, stream or pull them up on Pandora, turn up the volume, then sing along loudly in your office or cubicle – sike…don’t get fired…or carted off to Bellevue,  just sing quietly and chair dance!

This is the list with link to my six favorite summer songs.

Sundress – C.o.C.o Brown & The Phat Cat Players

Summertime – Will Smith

Under The Boardwalk – The Drifters

Celebration – Kool & The Gang

Hot Hot Hot – Buster Poindexter

Heatwave – Martha & The Vandellas

Summer songs and summer wear seem to go hand-in hand, hence my #1 jam, so when it’s hot all day everyday, I prefer a sundress.  This is one of my favorites thrifted from GW Boutique.

Hello Friends, I hope everyone had a nice Father’s Day weekend!

Father's Day 2013 003

Hubby had a nice one even with a change in dinner plans, but I was able to pull off what I think was a better meal than what we would have had at a restaurant.  Yesterday he played a little one-on-one with Malik and fortunately, no injuries were sustained!

Father’s Day Dinner was baked Salmon, Spinach Shrimp Salad and Dill Potato Salad. Daddy’s (not mine) dessert was Lemon Meringue Pie and Talenti Gelato Mediterranean Mint.

Hello Friends and Happy FRI-YAY!

Sunday is Father’s Day, a day to honor and celebrate our dad; daddy; pops; pop-pop; grandfather; brother; uncle or significant other.  Sunday is also the 14th anniversary of my father’s death.  Talvage Cross, Jr., my father, didn’t raise me nor were we close I did however, love him very much.

He died on June 16, 1999, at the age of 61, a heart attack in a library in Cincinnati, Ohio.  A man of meager means who loved to read, so for him to die in a Public Library was profound.

Talvage Cross, was a hard working and decent man; the man that married my mother in 1960; the man that assisted in my creation in 1961; the man that walked me down the aisle in 1990; and the man that consoled me when my sister, his daughter died in 1992.  My sister, Gloria Cross, Jr., was named after his own sister Gloria who also died at an early age.

He was also the man that died before my sons had a chance to meet him, the first time they saw him he was laid in a coffin.  They like me do not have a grandfather, they will never call another man granddaddy or pops, because hubby’s dad is also deceased.

On Sunday, my sons will be celebrating and honoring their father, another great man, or as Malik likes to call him “the old man” and for that I am blessed.

I am wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
