Time to down-size in my life. And, I chose to do it while I am still able and in my 'right mind'. I would not leave that huge chore for my children to tackle after I am gone. Not that I am planning on 'being gone', nope, not for a long while yet. But, you know what I mean.
Anyway, it has made me nostalgic. Remembering first this thing, and then another. Things I wish I had (so I would have to get rid of them now. haha) like a scrapbook I made when I was a pre-teen. I was so into Hollywood stars. And, back then the stars were bigger than life! I knew them all by name. I'd cut their pictures out of newspapers and magazines and I pasted them into a scrapbook. I wonder what ever happened to that scrapbook.
I loved Veronica Lake and her long, blonde hair and the way it swooped over one eye. Sexy hairdo.
Of course, my favorite male was Clark Gable. Who wouldn't be mesmerized by his husky voice as he declared to Vivian Leigh that he didn't give a damn in 'Gone With the Wind". He actually said DAMN on the big screen. That was risqué in those days. Oh how we have fallen from grace over the years.
I thought Hedy Lamar was so beautiful. She was always perfectly made-up.
Loretta Young was another movie star that I followed faithfully.
I've been told that when I was young I favored Susan Hayward. I don't know.... what do you think?This is me......
Some people say that the photo of me in my teens looks more like Judy Garland.
Regardless of who I look like, I look like ME and I never made it to Hollywood!
