  1. I like a lot of the things on this list including Mr Manilow. My fave entry is
    “Individuals who understand girls like me”. How about individuals who ADORE girls like you?? Love and Kisses ~Seth

  2. WOW …… is that a budding romance?

    I love Barry Manilow…who would judge?
    Nick and Nora Charles
    Pink Depression Glass

    Leaders of the pack but they all deserve lengthy consideration.
    Good thoughts.

    • Ha! No. Not a budding romance. A very dear friend that I adore. He’s always much too kind to me.

      I love my pink depression glass. It’s so whimsical. Years ago, I went to see Arsenic and Old Lace at the Alex Theater. They had “dish night” during that showing. Everyone who entered received an old fashioned dish. It was fantastic. I still have the dish to this day. Sometimes I believe it’s quite possible that I was born during the wrong era.

  3. You may wear my shirt anytime! Good stuff! Nice piece. As an individual, I dig a girl just like you and who looks exactly like you. ; )
