I think every senior gal has the right--nay, perhaps the obligation!--to dress however she gol-darn pleases.  But speaking for me, I want to be the gal on the left, not the right:

And Lovely Daughters #1 and #2? If you ever see your Momma dressing like this, please make a neurologist appointment for me right away:

Because this is definitely Mental.
