Baby, its gonna be cold!

And, yes, dievca is going to pull out one of her 15 fur coats/jackets/vests….

Fifteen? you ask.

Yes, 15.

Just four here in NYC.

dievca’s Mom was best friends with a furrier. We received coats when people upgraded or needed another size. Coats can be cut down, but making them larger calls for a new coat. We received more when they retired and decided not to sell the business.

Fur, if it is taken care of well – stands the test of time. It is pretty much the warmest solution in cold weather.

If you decided to pass judgement on dievca — ask yourself if you eat meat, drive a car, wear leather, wear down, understand how much of a carbon footprint is made from creating faux leather and plastic products, etc. dievca knows where her fur came from, who sourced it, who made the coats and how long she has had them.
And they will, someday, decompose safely.

dievca is going to guess that you have a problem with hunting deer, too.
Have you ever seen Bambi starve in the winter? It’s not pretty.
All the hunters she knows are very conscious about using ALL the parts of a deer.

Yes, dievca has fur hats, too. Vintage.
And is tired of being on the defense for wearing fur, so she has gone on the offensive.

Choices.

“Life provides all of us with a series of choices. Choices we make determine how successful we are. When you acknowledge that you and only you are responsible and accountable for the choices you make and when you refuse to blame others for the choices you have made, you have in your hands the blueprint for success. When you allow others to choose your path so that you can then blame someone else when things don’t go your way, you are fooling no one and cheating no one but yourself. When you accept the fact that you are in your present condition, good or bad, because of the choice you have made, you will then find yourself capable of changing your situation by making better choices. No one but you determines your success in life.” — Lou Holtz

dievca is reviewing her Life:  her choices, her successes and failures.  she knows that she can survive in the City, she should be able to survive almost anywhere — but while dievca is dog paddling to stay afloat here, she forgets there are other choices available.

(A young friend got mugged at 3:00 am outside of his apartment on the UWS – broken nose and eye socket — reconstructive surgery. This coming after another friend moved to FL after a mugging…both gentlemen are young, handsome and gay. dievca hasn’t had a glimpse of anything on her end, but she is usually asleep at 3:00 am and she’s also old, ugly and not gay… But, it does make one think about what choices and options are available for the future. Time to talk to Master.)
