If Only by Ruby RedHat, Red Hat Society

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.


This morning I was enjoying a slice of red velvet cake for breakfast, because I believe that sometimes it’s okay to break the rules and eat dessert first. With every bite of ooey gooey cream cheese frosting, the child in me giggled with excitement. But let me tell you… these hips don’t lie, and I knew I would definitely have to go for a walk later to balance out my morning. This leads me to this month’s topic: 


IF ONLY….       

If only… reminds me of a poem I read somewhere, some time ago.  If only I could remember so that credit could be given to the poetess.  If only is usually followed by a regret, but I would rather turn it around a bit.  (I’ve had a few regrets, but “too few to mention”.)

     How about:

     If only red velvet cake lowered cholesterol.

     If only dancing cured hip and knee problems.

     If only high heels WERE sensible. 

     If only wrinkles were a sign of great beauty.

     If only “wings” (aka arm flab) were useful for something – like flying.

     If only we had happy dust we could sprinkle on crabby people.


     And, from a red hat point of view:

      If only we could have Chapters in every country we just might be able to take over the world. 

     If only we had enough members we could emulate the Olympic Torch ceremony and carry a torch from Hatquarters to our convention and REALLY get noticed.  (On second thought maybe we should enlist our Pink Hatters for that.)


If you are reading this rambling of mine, I thank you.  If only I could give you a hug – right now!! I also 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.
