Now, Where Was I? by Ruby RedHat

Monday, September 8th 2014 @ 7:36 PM

Ruby’s Corner
Hello! My name is Ruby RedHat, and I’m the official mascot of the Red Hat Society. I am a frisky, full-figured little lady, cleverly disguised as an adult. I like to think I represent the spirit of the little girl who is alive and well in women everywhere, and I am delighted to share my monthly Ramblings with you.




Now, where was I?  I know I was preparing to ramble and somehow completely lost my train of thought.  It’s been happening a little more often as a matter of fact.  Do you ever have this happen?  It got me thinking of a conversation I recently overheard among a Chapter of Red Hatters. (It might sound familiar to you too.) It went something like this –


     “Remember that great movie we saw with the actress we all loved?

     “Oh, yeah.  What WAS her name?”

     “She was in another one with the guy who was up for an Academy award, right?”

     “ We saw that one too, didn’t we?”

     “ That was last year wasn’t it?”

     “ I remember that we had lunch at that great restaurant on the river afterwards.”

     “Oh, what was the name of that place?”

     “I think it started with a C.”

     “This is pathetic.  We’re going to have to write these things down as they happen

       or else just laugh about it!”


And they did laugh – a lot!  I guess it takes a group, and then some, to complete a topic.  I guess I should start laughing too for the things I have been forgetting lately.  It is inevitable that I will lose (rather misplace) keys, lists, messages, and books on a pretty-much daily basis.  I used to be really good at remembering names, but that eludes me quite often now.  I know that a lot of information can be stored, and easily retrieved in one’s phone, but that means you have to remember where you put your phone.  Much like that Chapter I’ve mentioned, I seem to remember a title, but not an author, or an author, but not a title, of a book I want to recommend.  Sometimes I even forget what it was all about – just that it (whatever “it” is) was great!

My non-scientific explanation for this is that by our age we are on information overload.  Like a computer, we need to delete and refresh once in a while.  No wonder little kids can remember so much.  They haven’t lived long enough to forget.  But then, all the information we have acquired makes us wise, right?

One more thing… Are you playing in the Red Hat Society yet? I would like to extend my red-gloved hand and invite you to join the fun today! Trust me, there’s nowhere else in this world where you can step into a room and feel the instant connection of Sisterhood and Friendship like you would at a Red Hat Society event. Visit to learn more about the Sisterhood, and don’t miss the incredible events coming up on our Save the Date page.

RUBY REDHAT is the official mascot of the Red Hat Society.  In the year 2000, a little lady named Ruby appeared, out of nowhere, on the computer screen of EQM Sue Ellen's daughter, Andrea (aka Princess Daughter). Princess Daughter was working on the first Red Hat Society website and when Ruby got wind of it, she just volunteered her services as a representative (mascot?) for the entire membership. Ruby had recently finished compiling her Top Ten (plus one) Rules for Living and she had a feeling that both she and her rules would be able to help the Red Hat Society clarify its members and its purpose to the world. We are all thrilled to have her represent the little girl inside all of us, who is ready and willing to come out and play again in every woman who invites her to do so.
