Happy blogiversary to me — 3.0! (Or is it 2.1?)
On June 23, 2011, Duke University’s Kyrie Irving was the number one pick in the NBA draft.
Actor Ted Shackelford, Gary Ewing of Knots Landing fame, celebrated his 65th birthday.
And I hit “PUBLISH” for the first time on this blog, launching Shadows and Satin!
Can you believe it’s been three whole years? I can’t. But time flies when you’re having fun. (And fruit flies like a banana.)
Writing this blog has been — in the words of Don Cornelius — a stone gas! And it’s a pleasure to take the opportunity, once again, to thank Dark Pages Senior Writer and Speakeasy blog author, Kristina Dijan, who encouraged me to start it in the first place. My most sincere thanks, also, to anybody who has ever read a single word I’ve ever written here.
To celebrate my three-year blogiversary, I am continuing my tradition of offering you a great quote from one of my favorite actresses — this time, it’s Jean Harlow, from Hold Your Man (1933):
“You wouldn’t be a bad looking dame, if it wasn’t for your face. ”
By the way, if you haven’t seen this pre-Code gem, check it out.
You know why.
