Merry Christmas

And Merry Christmas to you! (a day late)

Seeing Ms. Bette in all her glory gave me a chuckle and brought back a memory. Thirty-plus years ago, I was in the Crazy Horse in G'Town and was being charmed by a handsome Middle Eastern guy. He told me that I looked like Bette Davis. I was horrified...because I thought he meant Bette as she looked then...but he meant it as a compliment. He said "Didn't you know that in her early years, Bette Davis was a great beauty?" Ah, memories. :)

Yes, Sheri, most people remember her as the crotchety old hag on the Tonight Show.

Sheri: I'm sure you know that they were always after the young Bette Davis to look better. Yet when you see her early films, she was quite beautiful.

Kate: It sure made me laugh. I was watching other Jimmy James You Tubes and he does an incredible Marilyn Monroe.

Phil: Those later years, I wanted her to retire behind doors. She weighed 30 pounds, had experienced a massive stroke so had dragging face/speech impairment, and she was so....cranky. Also a designer of that time had put her in these clown clothes with large primary colored buttons. It lacked dignity.
