This is day 7 in the A to Z Challenge.
is for Grandma. My grandmother Lucille Rucker Davis always had a new hat, especially at Easter. She went through a stage of wearing similar hats, typically tall with a short brim. For some reason we always referred to them as her “lid.” And then we’d laugh.
Here are two prime examples:
|Grandma and Granddaddy Davis|
Grandma always liked pictures near her flowers.
Grandma wore a similar hat back in the 1920s!

been a school outing.
Maybe because she grew up in a time when wearing a hat to church was the norm, Grandma always made sure we had hats for Easter too.
Top left: Moi 1960
Top right: My sister Mary Jollette - not sure what year but Momma made that cape and hat
Bottom left: Me and my sister probably 1962 -- does she look 3 to you? Anyway -- One of my favorite Easter outfits - a beige suit with red hat, red clutch, and red Trotters (complete with socks!!). Mary Jollette got a baby duck.
Bottom right: 1967 - I'm tres chic in a yellow suit with white hat and accessories (even gloves!) Even baby sista has a suit and gloves. Daddy always got everyone a corsage.
When my first child came along, she wore the French bonnet that I wore as a baby.
