“Ah ... the okra. First I drew, colored and cut them out, putting little holes in the tops, because they were my earrings the year I was Okra Winfrey for Hallowween. I painted my face green, and fashioned a microphone out of an antique wooden spool. Needless to say it took a long time for anyone in my office (still in the B&M world then) to know who or what I was, because only one person recognized what the okra was, and after I ‘interviewed’ her, she put two and two together. Okra it's rather an unknown vegetable to a lot of people, lol.”
You have a fertile imagination and plenty of spunk.
Okra I do know very well. Thank heavens it was available at the supermarkets in the US. Okra and pita bread was a staple diet for me (in between the tater tots and pizzas).
What post got zapped?

Thanks. It was a take-off on another Halloween costume when I still lived in Grand Lake. That year I was Opa Winfrey
The phrase "Opa!" was heard many times around that small mountain town before shots of whatever where downed. So that year, I had little plastic shot glasses dangling from my ears, and sewn all over the top I was wearing.
People still talk about Opa Winfrey ... many years later.

Apparently it was found offensive ... and I assume the Opa reference will disappear as well. I never in a million years thought of that costume as offensive - not even close, because it isn't. It's a play on her name.
Ravindra and whomever else may be interested: I LOVE okra and almost all veggies but definitely am not a Vegetarian. I just had fried okra @ The Cracker Barrel Thursday evening w/: chicken and dumplings, hash brown casserole, and fried apples. No carbs in that meal-lol! I ate about 2/3 of the meal and got a box for the other 1/3. When our waitress asked us if there was anything else we'd like I replied a wheel barrow (to haul me out). Sooooo good but soooo stuffed.

C'mon people ... let's see your photo ... I don't want to be the only one!
Okay, John, Rene, Pat, Wendy, Nichola, Jennifer …
You're up next!
Hmm, it doesn't appear that John or Rene are playing. Perhaps they need a formal invitation? Or, maybe they're younger than you think?
