  1. What an interesting blog concept. Last night there was a biography on the Rat Pack on TV. It was very interesting. I lived through many of those years and hardly rememberd any of it.

  3. Hi Linda,

    I love your October 29 Mourning quote about the hummingbird.

    What a lovely sentiment.

    Blogspot doesn't want to recognize my ID, sigh.

    I hope you and everyone dear to you is thriving.

    Happy Trails,

  4. Joey Bishop. The end of an era. I actually sort of met him once.

    I sat in the lobby of a hotel in Las Vegas. I had my legs crossed and was wiggling my leg. Joey Bishop walked by, removed my shoe, took hold of my foot, and said, "May I show you something in a pump, Ma'am."

    At first I thought he was just some kook, but then I realized he was a well-known one. *lol*

    May he rest in peace.
