#66 and beyond....continuing the story

# 66. I was a hat model. The photo above was one of four in our local paper in January, 1960. I wish I still had those eyebrows!

# 67. I am the happy owner of a new mouse pad, thanks to none other than Rosie O'Donnell! If you go to her site http://rosie.com and sign up, you might get one too. It's bright yellow and it says:

Go blog urself.........................rosie.com

#68. I was a member of the Rainbow Girls; the young women's arm of the Masonic Order.
#69. I didn't see the ocean until I was sixteen years old.
#70. Drawing and painting are some of my favorite things to do, but I never have time for it any more.

Hurray, hurray, I'm Michele's site of the day! http://www.micheleagnew.com
Thanks, Michele, for choosing my site and thanks to all of you who stop by here. Come back soon, ya' heah?

Hello, Michele sent me. :-)Beautiful picture!

Karen said...

Hi, Michele sent me.

Great picture. And as for #69, I was 23 before I ever saw the ocean (as long as the Gulf of Mexico counts... if not, I was 39!).

War Eagle said...

Michele sent me. I like the photo too. The story about the movie theatre is interesting

War Eagle said...

Just checked out rosie's blog. What's with the short choppy sentences, no puncuation and no capitalization. It is had to read they way she has it written. I did like the painting she did through.

Heather said...

Hey Kenju! Congrats on being site of the day! I got a rosie mousepad too:-) My name was wrong on the envelope, though. Was yours? Lovely picture of you! You know I am hear every day but today Michele sent me:-)

Hello, Michele sent me!

Ally said...

That is such a fantastic photo - I am suffering from both hat and eyebrow envy :).

Hello, Michele sent me!

Melody said...

Hi! Here via Michele...

What a gorgeous photo of yourself. A hat model hey? You must have a lovely shaped head! (*grin*)

I can't believe that you didn't see the ocean until you was 16. I guess us Aussies are lucky as most of us live within 100kms from the sea (some figure like that anyway!)

I too love to draw and paint. I had not picked up a pencil, let alone a paint brush for simply years, until 3 days ago! (Believe it or not!)

I have been here a few times before and I will be back....

Cheers ;)

christina said...

Hello, Michele sent me! What a beautiful picture. How elegant you look. It's not everyone who can be a hat model.

mrsmogul said...

How beatiful! Congratulations on being Michele's site for today. I was reading your Four Freshmen post. I met James Darren, and i was thrilled.

Angie said...

You are gorgeous!!!

quietlyshouting said...

Stunning photo - you're so glamorous!

Michele sent me, but I've been lurking for a few days anyway :-)

Zinnia Cyclamen said...

Hello, Michele sent me. 'Get on over there,' she said sternly. 'Kenju has been so kind in your comments box even though you haven't visited her for ages. Go say sorry.'

I'm sorry, Kenju. But I'm glad I finally made it to your blog. And everyone's right, that photo is stupendously glamorous!

Michelle said...

Yo, Michele sent me. Nice lid!!

Jennifer said...

I had to come on your Special Day and say, hello, Michele sent me.

She couldn't have picked a sweeter gal for the honor. I'm proud to count you among my blogfriends, too.

And lordy, that picture! You are one hottie, Miss Judy. :-)

Finn said...

How do you spell a wolf whistle? You were (and probably still are) one hot momma! The eyebrows are perfect.

Hi - Michele sent me! It's so cool to meet a blogger with a little more *coughs* "experience" under her belt.

You go girl!

FTS said...

I haven't made it down my blogroll to Michele yet, but I guess this saves me a trip. :)

Free to Be said...

Hi, Michele sent me.

Müzikdüde said...

Yes, Judy, Michele sent me and I feel guilty for not visiting on my own.

terrilynn said...

Wow! Who knew you were such a glamour girl? I love that you are doling out these tidbits instead of sharing your list all at once.

Enjoy your Michele-Sent-Me Day!

OldHorsetailSnake said...

You are absolutely stunning, Judge. Couldn't much look at the hat for all the looking at you I was doing. Wow!

srp said...

Got here on my own today. Love the hat. It reminds me of a really funny Mother/Daughter banquet story from the 60's....

I think Nys has a hat somewhat like that in her old dressup box.

Mrs. Fun said...

How fun to be a hat model. I wanted to model in my youmger days.
Hello Michelle sent me :)

Janet said...

Hi, Michele sent me! Kenju, I love that photo of you in the hat...you're beautiful! Also, most of the female members of my family on my Dad's side were all Rainbow Girls, who went on to belong to the Eastern Star...course my grandmother took a slightly different path and became a member of the Rosicrucians, but that's a whole 'nother story!

scrappintwinmom said...

Awesome pic! Michele sent me today!

iliana said...

I love the photo! Very glamorous. Michele sent me by the way :)

Angel of Music said...

Cool! I love to draw but never have time for it either... congrats on being blog of the day! Michele sent me. :0)

Kevin said...

I used to be a hat model, too. More of a trucker hat model, actually. Your pic is much nicer.

One more thing, lest I forget: Michele sent me.

Cylithria™ said...

Michele Sent me and wow you are stunning!!! Have a great day!!

vicki said...

Hi Judy! Michele did not send me. Site of the day! That's fun! I'm glad you finally got to the ocean.

You look oh so beautiful in that hat! I wish we still wore hats like that and that it was okay to wear them with shorts and flip flops.

MB said...

Hi, Janet sent me. I'm her cousin the Rainbow Girl. Love the picture, and I too love the brows. I work hard to keep mine from becoming a visual nightmare!

Humor Girl said...

Vics said...

Thats a hell of a back history m'love - oh yeah - and Michelle sent me too *kiss*

Blond Girl said...

Michele Sent Me....

and I'll be back. I love the picture. and as for the ocean the first time I supposedly saw it I was 26. However, it was raining and foggy in Washington (what' new with that?), so my friend may have just been saying it was the ocean.... who knows if it really was? :-)

I hope you'll visit me some time!

e said...

Hi, Michele sent me - this time...but I'll be back. great site!

Suzy0928 said...

Michelle sent me....I'm a little late...so sorry! =o) But loved the pictures!!

Weary Hag said...

That is one CLASSY photo, Judy! Just perfect. Forget the eyebrows... I wish I had that FACE!

Excellent post... it's always such fun to read your "things about me" posts.


(oh, and Michelle didn't send me)

doris said...

Wow! You looked fantastic. That is a photo to cherish.

Reminds me of when I did some secretarial/PA work for an elderly gentleman. I got chatting to his wife and commented on the old photo of her and said gosh, you look like a film star. Turns out she was!

Maria said...

Wow, so you made it to "site of the day" Congratulations and I know you deserve the honor. Of course, I am green with envy (not) and I didn't come by way of Michele exactly because I always look at yours first. =)

Shephard said...

Oh! What a great hat. You look wonderful, like you just stepped out of a movie. You're beautiful!
