THE RETURN OF THE DIGNIFIED WALKING LADY ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Cheers erupted at 7th and Montana this morning as the Dignified Walking Lady -- known for her long walks and arctic sense of style in 80-degree heat -- returned to Our Favorite Starbucks after a long hiatus. Last seen on October 28, 2007, the Dignified Walking Lady hasn't changed a bit. Her outfit -- a tweed skirt, heavy winter coat, woolen scarf, gloves and a broad-brimmed hat -- is the same. Her ivory-tipped walking stick is the same. Her limited command of the English language is the same. Even my conversation with her was the same. "Hello," I cried, "So nice to see you, again. Beautiful weather we're having, isn't it?" "Hi," she replied. "It's almost like Summer," I said. She smiled in response, tightened her scarf, waved goodbye and continued along her merry way. I, for one, am relieved to see her back in action. For a while there, I was afraid she might be stuck on an iceberg, floating out to sea ...!

Bless her heart...despite her garb, she'd still be cold at Nutwood! Brrr! 8° and dropping!

Hugs, Beth

It's refreshing to have a little dignity after suffering through the newspaper thief and the Jittery nutcase and the like. (i know we hear mainly of the wacko's and there are a lot of really fine people there but you know what I mean).

A good day, is a day above ground (or something like that). The Walking Lady is not only above ground, but walking. Kudos to her for enjoying the fresh air!
