It has been a worldwind day for Susan Boyle fans who have supported her over the past months by wearing 'purple'.
No red plastic scarves for the true fans....no...they opted for purple scarves, mostly hand-made and shared 'world-wide' as tokens of friendship amongst true fans.
One true fan is reported to having said,
"Well, we just knew, by observing Susan's clothing and NOT listening to her brother Gerry, that her favourite colour just HAD to be purple.
I would say that we are not, in any way, gloating over the fact that the very first fans opted for RED.
We don't 'gloat'. We are comfortable in our bodies and in our true feelings for Susan and her talent.
True, we are not rich or flambouyant in any way shape of form. Neither is Susan and that is why we continue to follow her career."
Susan has not yet met any of her 'Purple' fans as yet, as far as we know. They are biding their time and giving her the space she needs and deserves.
The Yarn Store in Port Dover, Ont. has a sale on for Purple Yarn. Bring in your Susan Boyle CD and you are also entitled to 50% off the sale price.
The owner is not ashamed to admit that he, too, is a Susan Boyle fan.
