WHAT WOULD ROSIE THE RIVETER THINK ABOUT THESE ICY POLKADOTS?

SEASONS GREETINGS

Wishing you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Feliz Navidad, Happy Kwanzaa, Mele Kalikimaka, and other greetings for a wonderful and joyous season.


BUT FIRST...

RosieCentral began back in 2006 when Kendra and I wrote the collective memoir: Rosie's Daughters: The "First Woman To" Generation Tells Its Story. We were inspired by the incredible stories of these women's lives -- women born during WW2 -- women whose mothers represented the iconic Rosie the Riveter.


NOT MUCH LATER...

...and as you probably the remember the story, we made a few red and white polkadot bandanas to wear for book presentations. And much to our surprise, women in the audience began asking where they were purchase these bandanas. And a business was born.


PERHAPS THE MOST UNUSUAL POLKADOTS ARE IN ICE...

...YES, ice. I was busy cooking for 12 on Christmas (well, actually Boxing Day but that's a story for another day) yesterday when I looked out the window to see that while Santa hadn't been here, it seems that Rosie had been. Look at the polkadots she left behind.




I have absolutely no idea how that happened. But it sure looks like polkadots both on our driveway and on our street. The polkadots are even in a random pattern -- just like the ones in the We Can Do It! poster. Hope you get as big a kick out of this as I do.


MEANWHILE... Kendra and I hope you are able to stay warm and spend time with family and friends during the holiday time. Best wishes for an inspired and inspirational 2023.
