“I finally realized the happy medium, ‘honey blonde’ was the correct color and line for me.”

Had my sistas over for lunch on the tub on Sunday and it was super. Very rare for Clara, Myrna, Veronica and I to all get together same place same time, so the frozen Margeritas flowed and Ann Sothern’s French Bean Salad was scoffed. I am sure we made a very pretty picture in our floral day dresses and raffia hats sitting on the granny squares blanket enjoying the sunshine with drinks in hand. If only Lady Longhorn had been there to share the Lieutenant Blender with us it would have been total perfection.

The previous night I made Kay Stammers’ “Winter Salad” for the Panther but goodness knows where my head was at because Kay Stammers, a glamorous tennis star of the 1930s “feted for her film-star looks and style” – was never in a movie. Who on earth was I confusing her with? I just don’t know! I will find out next week when I go to my “lock-up” to retrieve all my memorabilia. But anyhow, a salad composed of lettuce, apples and celery hardly a Silver Screen Supper makes!
