I'M A "SUNSHINE SISTER"....SISTER!

While I was at Church on Sunday, one of the women invited me to a luncheon for the "Sunshine Sisters" club. I was quite flattered, though I didn't know what a "Sunshine Sister" was. It sounded cute and fun so I said, "Oh sure, thanks very much". A few minutes later, Peter found me and I said, rather proudly, "Hey Honey! I'm going to the Sunshine Sister's club tomorrow afternoon! I was INVITED". Peter asked what a Sunshine Sisters club was. I said I didn't know, so I turned to the sister next to me and this is what happened....

ME: (very excited and animated) Hey! What exactly is the club I just agreed to meet up with? *big eyes-wide open and open-mouth smile*

SISTER: non-smiling, non-animated: "It's for women over 50".

ME: OH! So....it's pretty exclusive, eh?...HAHAHAHAHAHAH

SISTER: ----

ME: *turning back to Peter* It's for really awesome women with something to contribute to the Relief Society. Not everyone can get in. There's a waiting list. But once you ARE in, you're in for life. Whew!

PETER: So you have to be over 50.

Whatever....

sidenote: I went to the luncheon today and when I walked in, I did not know one single person. Not one. But there was an adorable little lady with a long, thick ponytail down her back in what looked like an old jogging suit. She ran up to me and said, (and I am NOT making this up), "Oh good, you wore old, beat up shoes too, like ME! That makes me feel better about wearing these!"

I looked down and she had what looked like old running shoes on. I just smiled and gave a thumbs up, patted her back, and smiled way big. I do love my sisters!!!

Second sidenote: I was wearing my "antique lace" socks and my brown ankle boots that lace up. It's a cute look...or at least I thought it was....hmmmmmmm

Welcome to the "CLUB"! (She said in her best Boris Karloff accent with the Eagles "Hotel California" playing softly in the background).
That's right, "You can never leave". Mwahahahaha!

Actually, it sounds a little creepy, but better than "Nifty Fifty's", as we were lamely called in Fallbrook. I never found out what was so nifty about it. I think we should be Soul Sistah's or something. Celebrate our age, wisdom, knowledge, etc. and play only Aretha and other MoTown songs.

Oh my gosh Linda...YES!!!! Maybe as the Boomers become more prevalent, that will be the case. It certainly will be if I ever find myself on the planning committee....bwahahahaha indeed....
