We had planned to travel to a local lake to spend the day with some friends at their cottage. I got some new flip-flops. Orange ones to match my favorite Bacardi Breezers (you do that too right?). I planned to make Rice Krispie Treats, yes I love them too but I was thinking of them, really! Wouldn’t you know it, after weeks and weeks of hot weather and an over heated house, today it had to rain.
I pouted momentarily, I was really looking forward to putting my toes in the sand, BBQ’ing and general lakeside mayhem. Then I remembered a project I had on the back burner (truth? I have too many stewing at once). I had bought an ‘Iron On’ at Michael’s a few days back. One, it was hard to resist the price and two, I love that it was a Peace sign.
If you grew up in the 60’s, you might remember seeing them everywhere, every day on everything. Remember John & Yoko in 1969 encouraging the world to ‘Give Peace A Chance’? I love that song!
I ironed my new ‘tattoo inspired’ peace sign on to a plain-white -T I bought at Superstore for just 8 bucks. I think John would approve. I wish we could have had him around longer. Such an immense talent and I think, a fine human being. Then again, this old hippie wears her heart on her sleeve.
Imagine what could have been?
“The thing the sixties did was to show us the possibilities and the responsibility that we all had. It wasn’t the answer. It just gave us a glimpse of the possibility.”
