yes, that's right! in fact there's a video of him in one of those on the internet. so cute!
my father thought he was terrific, he'd probably have been a zoot suiter altogether but they made him wear his Army Air Force uniform! my Dad was cool, really!
loved bluesy jazz and stuff like that.
no, I never heard of it. God knows what I was busy with then--I wish I had seen it though.
I would have loved it you're right.
Thanks, Leigh. Maybe I'll be lucky and they'll show it sometime.
I just noticed you specified Old Hitchcock--I agree with you, it's earlier films were the best I think.
Oh Leigh! NEW BESTEST FRIEND, LEIGH! Thanks for that. It is busting to come out!. It's escapist really, before I start writing I go and soak up all of my time capsule stuff and I'm back in another time! I'm Veronica Lake flirting with Alan Ladd--or Stanwyck, planning on "making a killing" in the insurance biz!
I shut out giant tv screens and cell phones and all the noise of now--and dive into neon cities with big band music and jazzy cocktail lounges--I stroll arm in arm with my escort--wearing my ankle strap shoes and a gardenia in my hair, and it's not 2008! (My Mother always told me I was born much too late)!
Yes, Jim Quayle's wife was (or is) a Pulliam, the family that owned papers in Indianapolis, Muncie, and Huntington in Indiana and the paper in Phoenix. Dan was a lightweight. I still break out in a cold sweat whenever I recall that for four years he was a single heartbeat away from being president.
Leigh, this stuff snows me under but Shelagh Watkins, who started the forum, says to get on it go to http://publishedauthors.org/ and to set up a forum the address is http://forumotion.com
Those addresses seem to work. She also invited you to join her site. Hope this helps.
I'd like to see an easy to use forum for those who write and read mysteries. Something like a lady in the UK started and calls Published Authors. I don't know how she did it and I'm too old a dog to learn many new tricks. Until I left the previous message I didn't realize I had signed up here earlier.
Read your post about this on the AHMM forum. Like you, I'm leery of Myspace because I see myself ending up listed as a dirty old man and potential predator. If I get it figured out, this may be a great place.
