I love this gospel song!

I heard a couple singing this song on the beach in Santa Barbara with just a guitar and almost fell over it was so pretty and sounded hundreds of years old but it isn’t?  It’s from Gillian Welch? 🙂 I need to give bluegrass a closer look….

Betty Page was a Schizophrenic and liked 50 Shades of Grey?

Well, I just didn’t know a damn thing about Betty Page. (I thought I did?)  I grew up seeing pictures of her on the wall of my uncle Joe’s garage and my dad had one of those pens that took all of her clothes off when you picked it up to write.  He kept it hidden in his tool box, but I would play with it when he would send me to the garage to get a pair of pliers or a screwdriver.  I didn’t know that she was the original “50 Shades of Grey” either?  I had no idea she made bondage photos until I saw this documentary.  Wow, for the time, that sure took some moxie?

She was also her class Salutatorian!

Have you seen this documentary?  I think the whole thing is on YouTube?  If not, you should give it a whirl.  First of all, she was ornery as hell and I love a women like that!  She was also a healthy looking woman with a normal body!

Her story was empowering and sad at the same time, anybody that has ever had a horrible landlord can understand her attacking one…lol  But having to spend 10 years institutionalized in a mental hospital?  I supposed it was also because of her nervous breakdown and the schizophrenia, but 10 years?  She should have lashed out at her father, that man was disgusting which you’ll learn about in the film.  Maybe a psychologist would say her father was the person she was lashing out at in a way when she attacked her landlord?…..

She doesn’t show herself on the film because she wanted to be remembered the way she was in her pictures, but you’ll hear her aged voice narrating the film.  RIP Betty Page.

If I Were To Online Date…

My friend just signed up for online dating(barf) and I was cracking up reading the “about me” sections of those things with her. She didn’t enjoy the mockery but I couldn’t help it. (Plus I saw TWO GUYS I KNOW ARE MARRIED!)  I respect people choosing online dating as an option, it is none of my business, but it isn’t something I would ever do.  I wonder what would happen if people were brutally honest with their profiles….  I started thinking about what my online dating profile would sound like. Haaa  Here it goes:

You may not call me “Babe.”  That is a generic term that guys use as a catch-all and more than likely, was used on every girlfriend you’ve ever had.  If you’re going to be with me, you’re going to “Say.My. Name!”

If your mom is a meddler and attempts to subtly put down your girlfriends over dinner, I am not the woman for you.  I am too old to be polite to mean mothers.  I will not wince before verbally nailing your mother to the wall, no matter how cute you are. I regrettably tolerated bad parents when I was young and naive – I won’t do it again.

I come with two dogs a cat, rabbit, and some really annoying God kids whom I love very much.  They will want to be your friend, how you treat them can and will be a deal breaker.

I’m set in my ways, that means you are welcome in my home but the minute you start trying to rearrange my furniture and/or attempting to change me in general; you are history. I’m still wild enough to try almost anything once, but I like myself the way I am, I’m not changing. But, I promise to return the favor.

I really don’t enjoy large crowds, gambling, Vegas, or middle-aged men that still talk about the football pass they made senior year of high school or college.  Living in your past sucks.

I can’t twerk and I don’t want to.

If you don’t believe in good dental health keep scrolling.  If you floss religiously everyday, call me.

In my opinion, a great sandwich consist of only cuts, a fresh roll, mustard, red onion, and mayo.  I like onions and garlic a lot, this will work out better if you do too.

Music, movies, nature, and art are part of my life force.

I can’t compare Star Wars to Star Trek, I won’t choose sides.

I prefer a man with a big nose, big feet, and big hands. (Think Adrian Brody or Robert De Niro)

My idea of a good time is an old cabin in the middle of the forest, good wine, books, delicious food, quality clothing, great leather boots(I like to get dirty if my feet are comfortable), tiny cubes of cheese, dessert, comfortable furniture, a fireplace, and a Range Rover(if it’s good enough for the queen…) to get me back into the city every few weeks. ☺💜

If that sounds boring to you keep on clicking………
