A short Quiser pleaser

** Warning; when you read this, you must do so with a proper Southern drawl or the entire effect is so lost**

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

I also love it when she says.. after being told she hasn't changed a bit in 40 years...
"I'm not as sweet as I used to be."

The best character in that movie!

Raina Cox said...

This is one of those movies that when I'm flipping through stations, I'll always stop and watch. And cry.

One of my all time favorites - the movie, the character & the actress. I also love the line in the movie when Olympia Dukakis (sp?) says: "She is evil & she must be destroyed" - I use that one fairly often! Thanks for wise reminder (about Paxil) - LOL!
Best,
Colleen

Shirly was perfect for that part. One of my favorite movies. When I like a movie it seems I never get tired of watching it. I have seen
Afair to remember (all three of them) so many times. I liked Cary Grant the best. The Movies today are awful.

Gosh gorgeous girl I TRIED to do Shirley Mac's Southern drawl but failed miserably. Just couldn't keep the Aussie twang suppressed for long enough!

my favorite and my best said...

raina me too!!
i can't NOT watch it if it's on. and frankly it's so much better this way...just sort of finding it on the tv as opposed to popping in a dvd.

Emily said...

Haha. Love it!

La Dolfina said...

She reminds me of my Mom in that photo:)
I'm so happy you stopped over today cuz I just mailed your package and have been thinking about you. Let me know when you get it. I'm just starting to feel better after such a heavy heart regarding Marija. Life is so fragile. It' been a rough couple of days in my world as we had a tragedy in our midst as well. A dear friend's son died tragically over the weekend. 2 lives cut way too short. It really makes you aware of the gift of each day. So let me sign off with these words... I love you Deb :)
God Bless.

Bonjour Deb! What a sweet surprise to see you have visited me, and to come and read your profile! I USED TO VISIT BONWIT TELLER IN BOSTON when I lived there! And of course, growing up in Los Angeles, I believe I first walked into a BW in West Los Angeles or Beverly Hills, of course! How fun and what a clever blog you have! Thank you so much for coming and leaving a comment...you know how much that is appreciated! Yes, we are thrilled that we are finally adding on after all these years of waiting to the have where-with-all to do it and know it's time! Excavation starts next month! We are teachers, so it is going to cut into the school year, but at least we'll have something to look forward to when we come home tired at night!

Do come anytime!! Anita
