Stubbed Toes and Icees

Memories of a childhood, conjure up going to the 7-11, barefoot of course,
after all, I was properly raised in the south ya'll.

Opening those big old heavy doors with the metal bottoms, only to have it
smash and stub my big toe!

Big tears and lots of drama, prelude my being hushed, aka sedated,
by the one and only Big Cherry Icee

Awe, Sweet Memories

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Holly Golighthly at her Best! I am not sure that I have seen all of the movie, but I definitely love the premise, the clothes and least but not last Tiffany's.

Audrey Hepburn was the perfect actress in this movie and launched many a love affair with her quirky sense of style and coy personality.

It even appears that Karl Lagerfield has utilized her as his muse for his Chanel's collection!

One of my favorite songs has always been Breakfast at Tiffany's by Deep Blue Something. As I am new to the blogosphere, I have not figured out how to link videos, or add a song playlist. Any suggestions and/or advice would be most appreciated. In the mean time, please link on the below to listen and enjoy.

Tiffany's Blue has to be a favorite color for every girl out there. Nothing can make a girl like me squeal with delight more than a present wrapped in my favorite color!

Have a Fabulous Day!!

"Every government interference in the economy consists of giving an unearned benefit, extorted by force, to some men at the expense of others." Wilton Friedman

Well, as stated in my opening Whimsy's and What Knots, this is on the deeper side of What's Next. Not to be political, but never have I heard such and exceptional explanation for the importance of Capitalism. I am amazed at his eloquence and the degree in which he imparts such a recently debated and most often difficult concept to understand by breaking it down into simplistic terms.

Plastic is Fantastic

For Barbie that is! And Good Golly Ms Malibu Molly, she is 50 and still going on strong. The only thing that I can say is I wish I looked that good at 30, let alone my current age (and I ain't telling).

In honor of Barbie's great Celebration, I have to acknowledge My Dearest Old Friend (as in one is silver and the other gold) as we have had some great times together. I have enjoyed watching the evolution of your body image, your assortment of fantastic attire, and not too mention, your numerous break-ups to make-ups with Ken . . . oh, and lets not forget your short lived fling with GI Joe.
