What a Frenzied Moment That Was!

Didn't they maintain an exhausting pace?

My darling OC posted some fun photos from Ascot Opening Day with the usual assortment of haute and not so haute millinery that has become de rigeur.

I was reminded of a wondrous hat that Dame Edna Everage wore back in 1976.

A lovely replica of the Sydney Opera House - sail boats and sharks in the bay included. Dame Edna could get away with that sort of thing - some of the ladies that OC has posted pictures of can't.

Wow! Thanks for the link! That was a riot! Read your lively comment at the end and may I add that not only are the royals useless, they're also extraordinarily homely!

I could get away with wearing that hat...very non-butch but I can do it.

I so adore Dame Edna.

PS- you notice they hadn't produced any attractive offspring until they brought in some fresh blood.
