On the phone, a perfectly wonderful evening...

I've had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn't it. Groucho Marx

I had to crack myself up after working on other difficult matters today. I thought of this quote & pix when the phone rang & after two years, I hear...but things were really not that bad....we could go....

No we aren't going anywhere together, buster. And they weren't that bad, they were worse. What a nerve!

I love this photograph; it reminds me of my mother in the late 1950s, early 1960s, when contrary to previous appearances (though they be slight), I was young. [via myvintagevogue in sidebar; from House & Garden, 1950.]

Hope you have a nice evening. I will have a perverse kind of fun: the third & final (for now) installment of Wallander with Kenneth Branagh as the mussed-up, messed-up Swedish inspector. Since the shows make me all jangly, it's fortunate that I don't have to be anywhere early tomorrow.

ciao & buona notte

Love the dresses from that period! So beautiful!

Did I thank you for visiting me? I know I thanked you on my comments section, but I can't remember if I thanked you on your site...which I definitely wanted to do. Unfortunately, I've been in a lot of pain and fatigued and my brain is not really working. So...if I have forgotten to thank you...please forgive me.

So...just in case...Thank you so much for visiting me and especially for your lovely comment!

I hope the show doesn't jangle you up too much and you are able to enjoy lovely sleep!

Oh Beatriz...I don't remember. And now it's 26 June. Eek. If you see this somehow...I'll be back by end of month. xo
