 French framework,

  silky silhouettes...

...and daywear dreams!

no blushing!

well...except for your lips, fingertips...

...and toes!

isn't this the greatest space? 

oh how i wish we could have a place like this for

the kids and grands to visit when we retire!

i have caught a serious case of cabin fever fervor! 

be careful, it could be contagious!

my 6th grade science diorama project was due tomorrow.

Sunday dinner...Mom's blue plate special, always with mashed potatoes and gravy!

pink bubble bath!

pink and blue flannel nightgown!

the fuzzy pink slippers i received for Christmas!

Sunday night hair was always neatly rolled in pink curlers!

i was ready to meet...






the set started with All My Lovin',  ( "close your eyes and i'll kiss you... " ), and

ended with I Want To Hold Your Hand, 

( i want to hold your haaaaaand!...bah, bah, bah, bow!!!) .

Monday morning we gathered  in class with an excitation that we had

never shared before. we placed our science projects on the long,

 low bookshelf that spanned the entire length of our classroom.

 chatter...(not about science)

giggles...(not about the 6th grade boys)

my sweet girlfriends and i were completely captivated by those mopped haired Brits!

...and yes,  i met them for a very brief moment in the Summer of  '66.

i was wearing a Jonathan Logan pastel blue dotted Swiss with

little white daisies appliqued on the sleeves.

Mom let me buy white strappy "squash heels"

my fave was Paul.

today, i can't remember what it was that i went upstairs to retrieve...

...but i still can sing almost every Beatle song between 1964 to 1967.

"Michelle, ma belle.

sont des mots qui vont très bien ensemble,

très bien ensemble."

( i honestly think that Paul McCartney may have had a slight influence with

 my need to speak French!) 

ah...words that go together well!

ma belle!

my beautiful!

(mots parfait!) will send to you...

...and to

those sweet girlfriends from St. Bernadette's and

Puget Sound Jr. High!
