If you read my blog about my 40's sing-song you know that my family and I are friends with an elderly couple, Mr. and Mrs. Guy. We were at the Guys' for lunch again this afternoon (steak, anyone? Yes, yes, yes!), and after lunch we were sitting around chatting and playing piano (of course). Then Mr. Guy asked my aunt how long she was going to let her Veronica Lake bangs grow. Of, course my aunt didn't know who Veronica Lake was, so Mr. Guy came and asked me if I knew her - my answer? "Of course!". Then Mr. Guy said something to the effect of "See? I had to ask someone sensible. Someone from our generation."...their generation? Let me just tell you I had to hold onto the piano to keep from floating away! Happy is not the word - I was elated. I love being thought of like that - an old soul or whatever you want to call me. I also love it when people tell me that they heard something about Stany or Vera Lynn or something pertaining to old music/movies and that it made them think of me. :)
There, now that I'm done with my story I will tell you about Veronica Lake (since I'm guessing most people don't know her very well). Veronica Lake was a actress/pin-up girl from the 40's who sort of created her own hair style - long waves and long bangs that covered one eye. Like this:
See? By the way, my aunt's hair doesn't really look like this.
Isn't she pretty?
Okay, I'm done. What do you think of my skill in coming up with reasons to talk about random people? Ha! ;)
Until Later On~
