What to Wear To A Barbecue?

This is an event that would have put me over the top a few years ago. OH NO - I can't do that. I have only a few casual items at that time and casual was not part of my gig. Rhonda was a "one trick pony". She could dress up, be professional/elegant and go out for the evening. A limited repertoire and confined by my own limits. Sound familiar? 

Even when going to work as Rhonda she was the forever professional and one dimensional. The real world is multi-dimensions.  Rhonda needed to be real. She needed real experiences in the wild. E.g., shopping, getting her hair done, job interviewing, volunteering, Starbucks, going to the Post Office and taking walks at the beach. 

Just a few days ago Deborah at the blog Fabulous after 40 was ask the question “What to Wear to a Barbecue?” Perfect timing because my local Mercedes Club was having a barbecue the following Saturday; our end of season appreciation party. I have been perfectly comfortable at our holiday parties, and even casual car collection tours, but I was lost as to what to wear to a picnic/barbecue. This was going to be held outdoors at a local Florida State Park in the late spring - might as well be dead of summer any place else. 

My choice for the day - shorts, t-shirt, and sandals. What I see every day at the mall, Starbucks, and basically everywhere. South Florida is very casual. These were all item I have in my closet, however rarely or never wear. This was also going to be a good test for my upcoming "casual days and excursions" on a seven day cruise. 

How did the choices work out? Very well and yes there was trepidation on leaving home. Once there I did receive several compliments and was asked: “where did you get those cute shorts?” The sandals were custom made at least four years ago and this was the first time wearing; a good match for the outfit. I like the way the outfit came together and most important, I felt confident.

In spite of the humidity the hair even held it's shape. Thank you hair spray. The photo here was takes as I was leaving the event. 

Do take a look at Deborah's suggestions and she has another post on "How to wear Shorts after 40". Here is a short synopsis

When your shorts are colorful and busy, try to keep what you wear up top nice, clean and simple. This creates balance and lets your shorts take the spotlight. A fun hat also adds huge style to a casual shorts outfit, and earrings give you a more grown-up shorts look.
Good advice for those of us a certain age, venturing out.

Challenge yourself to be real and escape into the wilds of your feminine summer.

Breaking News - Trump/Putin

For the rest of today and tonight there is going to be a lot of coverage that will be labeled "Fake News".  There is nothing fake about the president's actual words and you can see and hear them for yourself unedited most everywhere. Even on Fox News.  .  . 

There will be no denying that today's Trump/Putin news conference was a monumental event. The most clear denouncement of the president's actions are coming from Republican Senator John McCain. His words are unequivocal and strong. The question is now where does the rest of the Republican Party stand on what is also being called "nothing short of treasonous"?

If you are like myself, I wanted to see the full text of what Senator McCain said. Read his full statement below: (source)

“Today’s press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate. But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake.
“President Trump proved not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin. He and Putin seemed to be speaking from the same script as the president made a conscious choice to defend a tyrant against the fair questions of a free press, and to grant Putin an uncontested platform to spew propaganda and lies to the world.

“It is tempting to describe the press conference as a pathetic rout – as an illustration of the perils of under-preparation and inexperience. But these were not the errant tweets of a novice politician. These were the deliberate choices of a president who seems determined to realize his delusions of a warm relationship with Putin’s regime without any regard for the true nature of his rule, his violent disregard for the sovereignty of his neighbors, his complicity in the slaughter of the Syrian people, his violation of international treaties, and his assault on democratic institutions throughout the world.

“Coming close on the heels of President Trump’s bombastic and erratic conduct towards our closest friends and allies in Brussels and Britain, today’s press conference marks a recent low point in the history of the American Presidency. That the president was attended in Helsinki by a team of competent and patriotic advisors makes his blunders and capitulations all the more painful and inexplicable.

“No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant. Not only did President Trump fail to speak the truth about an adversary; but speaking for America to the world, our president failed to defend all that makes us who we are—a republic of free people dedicated to the cause of liberty at home and abroad. American presidents must be the champions of that cause if it is to succeed. Americans are waiting and hoping for President Trump to embrace that sacred responsibility. One can only hope they are not waiting totally in vain.”

A New and Damming Level of Hypocrisy

Franklin Graham

Franklin Graham tells Jimmy Carter that Jesus would kill gay people, not marry them.

 By Bil Browning Thursday, July 12, 2018 

From The

Responding to former President Jimmy Carter’s statement that Jesus would support same-sex marriage, Trump supporter and supposed Christian, Franklin Graham launched a blistering attack on Facebook.

Jesus wouldn’t bless gay couples, the far right minister says. Instead, God would kill them all.

“Jesus didn’t come to promote sin, He came to save us from sin,” Graham wrote. “The Bible is very clear. God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah because of homosexuality. God defines sin in His Word—it’s not up to our opinion, the latest poll, or a popular vote.”

“God loves us and gives us the truth in His Word. He warns us of the serious consequences of sin,” Graham finished before launching into one of the Bible verses that evangelicals use to condemn LGBT people.

If you’re thinking, “Boy, that sounds a lot like the religious reasons why slavery shouldn’t be abolished,” you’d be right. But you shouldn’t be surprised.

Graham’s father, the late televangelist Billy Graham, was known to eschew blatant politics beyond serving as a spiritual advisor for multiple Presidents and purposefully integrated his followers during the civil rights era.

His son has instead made it a priority to promote the Republican Party – especially the most immoral president in the nation’s history – and endorses discrimination against people of color and LGBT people.


Shame on You!!!!!!!

Here is Connie’s latest note with photos. 

On July 8, 2018, she wrote:

Since I've let my hair grow long I've become more confident in being out in public now. Very happy how the longer hair enhances and helps me present with a much more realistic feminine presentation. As my hair gets longer I get bolder going out and can more easily mix and blend in public.

Now that it is long--- and I have let my wife's hairdresser know of Connie-I'm now seeing her to get my hair done. A bit of a new experience having my hair done with my wife!! Such is the life we in the TG lead at times

High Heel Hacks

You Have Been Wearing Your Heels Wrong Your Entire Life

From the Blog:

We all have to admit that we are obsessed with high heels, not because only do they look fashionable, but they give us that extra edge to our personality. Heels give us satisfaction and confidence while we wear them and they help us look more feminine and give our legs a perfect shape.

But sometimes wearing heels can be painful. But if you know the correct way to carry them, then it wouldn’t be painful anymore. So, let’s have a look at these life-saving hacks that are given below and that will double up your love for heels.

Know the correct size;

You need to find your correct shoe size if you want to get rid of the pain. If you wear heels that fit you perfectly, your pain will lessen drastically. But if you choose a size bigger than your foot size, you will feel uncomfortable all the time because it will get out of your legs continuously. But remember that on the other hand, if your shoes are too tight for your feet, then it will hurt them and leave ugly marks on them. So you need to choose the correct size so that you feel comfortable while walking.

Choose heels with thicker soles;

You should always choose heels with thicker souls because that will ensure that you have enough ground to land your feet on. The ground will give you ample space to your feet and you will feel comfortable walking in them. Your legs can be hurt by thin soles because they put more pressure on your feet and dirt and other external agents can get into the legs and make your feet dirty and cracked.

More coverage is better;

Shoes with a higher coverage are more comfortable and are always a better choice because more sole ensures that less pressure is put on your feet which makes the shoes more comfortable for you.

Go for shoe inserts;

Those small and soft rounded balls which can be inserted at the end of the shoes are called shoe inserts and they prevent sore in legs. If you have them in high heels they will make it smooth and comfortable for you to walk in them. If you haven’t used shoe inserts yet, give them a try! You will save yourself from the nerve-racking pain of wearing heels.

Choose heels which are thicker;

This may be difficult to believe in, but sometimes the problem is the thickness of your heels, because the thinner the heels are, the more horrible your experience will be. Thicker heels will give you more comfort than thinner heels. Thick heels will give you more space and comfort while walking and that makes them painful.

Taking breaks at regular intervals is mandatory;

You need to take regular intervals to save you from the pain of wearing heels, no matter how good the quality of your heels is. You need to bring out your legs from the heeled shoes once in a while. You can take regular breaks after every 30 minutes if you suffer from severe pain because the breaks will let your feet breathe and shoo away the pain.

Stretching your feet;

Make sure to stretch your feet when you take a break and open your shoes because it acts like a little exercise for your feet by giving them ample space to relax. In that way, your feet can breathe much better and the next time you put your heels and walk in them, you will feel very comfortable.

Know your type;

Heels can be in many shapes and sizes, and the material used for making them are different, so you have to be aware of what shoe type can you carry off easily. You should wear only the shoes that you are comfortable putting on and always go for comfort rather than the appearance of the shoe.

Show when the day ends;

Your feet get sore when you wear heels for the entire day, so you should switch to a comfortable pair of shoes because it will give you ample space and needed comfort after the heavy day.

Say yes to the tie-ups;

The tie-ups distribute the pain evenly and are less painful, and the benefit is that you can adjust the ties as per your preference – loose or tight.

Fix the bottoms;

If you want to get rid of the rough edge you can screw a part of the bottom of the shoe heels with scissors.

Check the heel placement;

When you buy shoes, make sure to check that the heels are placed right at the center of the shoes because that will ensure proper balance and less pain to your feet and it will prevent you from tripping.

Cruise Activities - Disco Night

Evenings on board the cruise ship were full and never dull. Dinners were early in the main dining room most evenings, with many choices of what to do next. There was the 1380 seat Amber Theater with the Broadway class production of “Mamma Mia!” There was the Aqua Theater with an incredible water acrobatic show including 60-foot platform high-divers. And in between, there was a piano bar, wine bar, champagne bar, jazz club, dance clubs, comedy clubs, an ice skating show, a karaoke bar and solo music artists performing in the garden of “Central Park”.  And that is not all...

The photos above are from the Promenade Deck where on one of the nights the cruise director hosted a full blown Disco Party. There must have been several thousand being entertained by the beat of “We Will Survive”, "Soul Train", "Kung Fu Fighting", "YMCA" and much more. A very reasonable tribute group of the Village People danced and encourages us all to join in for over an hour. The policeman of the group was none other than the ship’s cruise director. He was quite the entertainer and dance master for the show. 

During the cruise he was the hardest working person on the ship. He was everywhere.  

The music was great and everyone moved to the beat. Obviously, some knew ahead of time and brought their best 80’s disco outfit. There were many very interesting costumes including one person wearing white Go-Go boots, a paisley polyester 70’s mini-dress, and a long wig. I am sorry I did not get his photo.

Again I want to tell you how easy blending in was on the cruise.  A super wonderful ESCAPE. There are more photos to come and this was just one very full evening of many. Stay tuned.   

A broad smile after a full evening of activities. 
Do you like the nautical look?

Restoring Femininity

Michelle Miller | TEDxAmsterdamWomen

As femininity cannot be measured, we often consider it to be without value. Being feminine is not about a measurable result, it is about the experience. It is a mistake to ask society to try and measure though. Michelle explains how writing a book and producing a TV show have, in fact, yielded great results, but above all were a great and liberating experience. 

Michelle Miller is a writer and producer of books, television, apps and experiments in digital art. Her novel The Underwriting, a satirical corporate thriller about Wall Street, Silicon Valley and online dating, first appeared as a self-produced transmedia serial, and she is now writing the television adaptation with Endemol and Fox. In a past life, Michelle worked in finance and as a consultant in New York and across Europe. She holds a BA and MBA from Stanford University and currently splits her time between New York, Los Angeles & London.

Significant Dress Shopping

I am looking at doing more professional speaking as Rhonda and had my cruise coming. So off to Macy's for an afternoon of dress shopping. I have not updated my dresses in a while, although I've had several alterations done recently (shortened).  While attending my "Woman's Forum" event a few weeks back I noticed a lot of dresses. So definitely back in feminine style.   

I question Macy's viability long term, as they always seem to be having desperation sales. Every weekend is a "One Day Sale" lasting all weekend or whatever holiday/season is close "Sale". The prices on the tags only seem to be MSRP as in car shopping. This day's dress shopping had "Star Rewards", "Father Day" (not kidding), "Style Event"  and "Loyalty Points" savings. How could a father (sorry girl), resist?

The tags are still attached, so not 100% committed to all three. The most fun of the day - the shopping and trying-on. I likely took six different dresses back with me to try and had my associate running to get additional sizes. (Someone who has helped me before). This kind of shopping would have only been a fantasy in the early days. This was so much fun!  I love being a girl.

Note:  The two dresses on the left have been committed to events.  You will see them in upcoming cruise photos. They look great!

Feminine Differential - Getting Ready

I am sure so many of us can relate to this.  Going to work as Rhonda was a one hour process and that was on a morning that I did not wash and set my hair.  Choosing the outfit, hot curlers and makeup was the ideal situation.  Washing, blow drying and styling hair was at least another 30 minutes plus.  Still a lot more time that I ever spent getting ready in my other gender - although not near as much fun.  

I have friends that talk about the 2-3 hour process and early on that was the case for me as well. That was part of the allure as much as going out. Work did change that in that there was not the luxury of time in the morning.  Still I never tire of to getting ready and going...

How long does it take you - start to out-the-door?

Cruising Suggestions - Q&A

St Maarten Beach
Before moving past the recent cruise identification process and discussing the trip activities, I wanted to post an observation and answer several of the questions I received.  

First, let me encourage this type of escape and state how easy blending becomes. Many years ago in some of my initial escapes, I notice that if I was in somewhat of a large group of busy activity, it became very easy to be invisible. One of my early recollections of this was mall shipping in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Everyone around me was distracted with their own activities and not noticing me. A great confidence boost so I relaxed and enjoyed the moment. 

On board the ship I was in sheer awe of its size, beauty, complexity, and details. The goal of the crew and cruise company is to keep everyone entertained and engaged. That they do! Thus it is easy to become centered in your experiences. There is a daily ship newsletter that has pages of activities and literally every minute has something going on. Think summer camp for adults.   

Thus you are wrapped up in doing, seeing and experiencing every aspect of the ship, ports, and entertainment along with your other 6000 shipmates. Everyone is busy. 

The bottom line - blending in is easy. 


Rhonda Darling ask the following questions:

Ship Pool Time
Q: When you were at the pool, did you swim? If yes, how did you deal with your wig? (assuming that you wear one. If your hair is natural, oops!)

That is my natural hair and I did take full advantage of the adult pool area by getting in. I also enjoyed the beaches at St. Martin and Labadee, Haiti (Royal Caribbean’s private island). In all cases, it was to cool off and I did not get my hair totally wet, which could work for a wig as well. I did not want to go through the shampoo blow-dry process before dinner. It takes about an hour to wash, and blow dry my hair. Yes, finally mid week, I did my hair. 

Q: Did you have any problems while ashore on the islands visited?

No problems at all. Puerto Rico had a two-tier re-entry. Port-side photo ID and then shipboard re-entry. There was no departing or reentry in St Martin other than the ships. I spent the day on St Martin, wondered, had a local cafe lunch and about two hours on the beach. In Puerto Rico, I walked around, did tourist stuff and took a cab back to the ship. Labadee is a small island and is like an extension of the ship. There is a tram provided that will take you to one of five beaches and a lunch (picnic style) is catered from the ship. There were excursions available (snorkeling, fishing, sailboat, zip-line, jet-ski), however I just enjoyed the beach with a lounge chair, umbrella and had lunch.

There are stories about less friendly islands like Jamaica, where there are places and individuals that may have problems with LGBT visitors. This island was not one of my ports. I would suggest doing research before and always explore tourist areas, shopping, and beaches that are suggested and safe. If you decide to skip a port, believe me, there is plenty to do on board the ship. 

Q: Did you have any identity problems at all on the trip?

Never once did I have an identity problem on the ship or anywhere else. After receiving a new cruise card with my first initial, I did not use my full name again until I went through US Customs re-entry upon return in Ft. Lauderdale the last day. 

A cruise vacation/trip creates lasting memories and fulfills fantasies. I highly recommend it as an escape adventure.

Declaration of Transgender Independence '18

This is not a day of just hamburgers, hot dogs and fireworks. It is a day to reflect. Men put their fortunes and lives at stake by signing a piece of paper that put the United States of America on a path to independence. If we do not speak out now, as transgender individuals we are in danger of losing the principals that the founders of this great nation envisioned. Please understand that your voice and vote matter in the same manner as the founders’ signatures.  

Rhonda Williams

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to arise and demand the political and social rights other Citizens enjoy, a decent respect to the opinions of humanity requires that they should declare the causes that impel them such.

We hold these truths to be self-evident. Regardless of gender identity, expression and sexual orientation, all people are created Equal – that they have been endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these Rights, governments are instituted among people, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to that end, it is the Right of the People to use the electorate process to change such government and institute new representation that will secure these rights and positively affect their safety and happiness.

Prudence, indeed, would dictate that representatives long in office and that have represented the people well should not be changed for light and transient causes. Indeed, experience has shown that people are willing to tolerate and suffer positions of their representatives as long as such positions are sufferable.

However, when such abuses and usurpation of Civil Liberties arise providing evidence to dehumanize any one group, it is the right and duty of the People to cast aside such representation in favor of new guardians that would secure the future and the liberties of all.

Such has been patient suffering of the Transgender Community, and such is now the necessity to replace those Oppressors with New Representation. The history of the Transgender Community is a history replete with injury and usurpation designed to dehumanize and eradicate a people within a society. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

*  The trivializing and ridiculing of the Transgender Community before the General Populace.

*  The casual abuse of the Transgender Community.

*  Psychological warfare against the Transgender Community has been committed to affect a disassociation between the Community and the General Populace.

*  Censure of the Transgender Community for expressing the desire to be treated with the same respect as other Citizens.

*  Allowing the Abuse of Freedom of Speech to inspire and incite violence and maltreatment against transgender people.

Deprivation of liberty against the Transgender Community.

* The committing of murder against the Transgender Community with weak prosecution is in effect, tacit approval.

*  The denied use of public facilities according to chosen gender. This represents a denial of personal privacy, dignity, and the free exercise of human rights with equal protection. 

  Defenseless young being forced by parents to endure dangerous conversion therapies aimed at correcting a person’s sexual orientation, gender identity or expression. Psychological harm is done attempting to change the unchangeable. 

In every stage of these oppressions, we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms. Our petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. Any representative whose vote and actions have given concurrence with these oppressions is unfit to be a representative of a Free People. And, thus, must be removed from office using the electoral process to place New Representation in its stead.

We, therefore, the Transgender Community, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, declare that we are a Free People – Equal with all other citizens and subservient to none. We state now and for all time that we have the right to Fair Treatment under the Law; retention of employment,  personal dignity, and housing; medical treatment as deemed necessary and prudent; to love and marry those whom we chose and do all other acts that a Free People may of right do.

And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, our time and our sacred honor.

Never has the statement above been so relevant and important. Last year I humbly added the points on public facilities, conversion therapies and murder prosecution.  They are still revelant.

Let us be united in voicing our concerns. Let us support those that support us. Let us vote with purpose and determination.  

Send this to your elected representatives, providing notice that our social rights are important. In support, I add my signature on this Independence Day 2018.

Cruising Suggestions - The ID

My Cruise Photo
As promised I will describe some of my personal observations from the cruise experiences of last week. The ship was the Royal Caribbean, Allure Of The Seas. It is one of four Oasis-class ships which make up a fleet of the world's largest passenger ships afloat; only slightly less in size than the American Nimitz-class aircraft carrier. The Allure can carry up to 6,296 passengers and has a crew of 2,300+. What a ship for a first cruise.  

My biggest concern was identification paperwork. As with flying there is very little latitude and passports are required because you are visiting foreign ports. The TSA operates this first tier of check-in, with identification checks, carry on bag x-ray, and radio waves body scanning. Once past this, there is a pre-boarding ship check-in, operated by the cruise company. 

This next level of security involves providing information for your “Cruise Card/Pass” and answering health question. Also the taking of a photo that is embedded in your file and displays most every time you use your cruise card.  The cruise card is your on-board identification, money (voyage charge card), cabin key, and entertainment/dining entry ticket. No paper or cash is used.   

Several weeks ahead I established an online account with credit card and uploaded the photo I wanted on file. That saved time at the cruise check-in counter and meant that I had, on file, the photo and presentation I wanted. "Nice photo" was the agent's comment. I highly recommended doing this ahead of time. At this point, the name on file is my legal (passport) full name. More on that later.  

Your boarding pass is stamped and this provides entry (boarding) much like in airline travel. Once your cabin is ready the cruise card is at the door to your cabin along with your checked bag. This occurred at about 1:00 pm on the day of departure. Embarkation is what boarding is called and occurred about noon.  Even after going through the security and the check-in process, you still have almost a full first day to enjoy the ship. That I did, so arrive early. The ship's departure from the dock occurs at 4:00 pm. 

Your ship entry point is onto a cavernous area, known as the Promenade Deck. This area is very much like a huge enclosed shipping mall that includes, shopping, dining rooms, information booths and a vintage car that is the centerpiece. Located on this deck is “Guest Services” which is very much like the front desk of a “Five-Star” hotel. 

Guest Services

It was at guest services later that first day, I presented in my best look (one that matched the submitted photo) and appealed for a better name representation for the week. I was fortunate to have someone that spoke and understood English well and after a huddle, with a supervisor, I was issued a new cruise card with only my first initial “G” and last name. Mission accomplished and problem solved!  I do believe that the travel agent had alerted the cruise line.  

I am sure that this is not their first request of this nature, so the guest services agent was understanding and knew just what I wanted/needed.

Thank you Barbara!  (see note below) 

From then on I was “Ms. G”. and all port departures and re-entries were uneventful as I watched the photo display. No questions or delays. The only additional security check was in Puerto Rico where I needed to show a photo ID, (driver’s license) and cruise card to re-board the ship. The first name on the DL matched the cruise card initial, so no hesitation or secondary look. 

My bottom line recommendations are these:

  • Upload a photo you want on file ahead of time.  Determine what presentation you want for the cruise and stick with that. Clothing variation can go from dressy, casual, to pool. Suggestion – stick with one gender so as to not confuse your cabin staff or food waitstaff; you will be interacting with them all week. They are friendly and accommodating, so no need to worry.  Be yourself - there is no reason to be concerned.
  • Most important – relax and enjoy the moment. Put on your bathing suit and go the pool; be modest and blend in. Wear your best resort/cruise wear. Formal nights are so much fun.  Stay tuned... 

There is much to see and do. Royal Caribbean and the Allure of the Seas was understanding and wonderful. This was one of my most rewarding and fun ESCAPES.

Why are you waiting?

She's Home

I have returned from my Caribbean Cruise aboard Allure of the Seas.  I had a wonderful time and plan on relating all of the fun times over the next few days.  There are many photos from beach time to formal night. I have some recommendations and experiences to tell, so stay tuned over the next few days....

There is a special person to thank for this experience of a life time.  You know who you are. A special experience. A special person.  

Until then here is a happy girl photo from one of the casual evening dinners.
