If you are keeping count along with me... only the captions stand between me and a celebration dinner!
Polishing up the captions for the Introduction shouldn’t have taken more than a few hours, but at the last minute, Dan and I added extra photos.
We now have nearly 40 photos our Art Director can use for the introduction or title pages.
Of course, more photos means more captions! Now you know what I'll be doing today.
Today's first two photos are from the Intro. The sailors knots were made by my friends Ben and Spencer-- Boy Scouts, extraordinaire!
So, before I get back to my captions, I thought I’d share an excerpt from a note I received from a fellow blogger.
That’s what I love about my blog, you never know who you will meet!
“Hello Barbara! I wanted to thank you for featuring my blog on your Blog ! If you are ever out in California, we live a stone’s throw from LA on a good traffic day, so be sure to come by and visit!
We live in "Horsetown USA." There are more horses than people! I guess its appropriate for me as my Mother was an actress in the 40s.
She was in many westerns and one of them was Ronald Reagan's very first movie! Her name was Betty Brewer. She was under contract with Paramount for several years until she got married and quit the business.
She was also a singer and sang with the Big Bands and on NBC radio. (Don’t you love 40s music) It's fun to look her up on Ebay and see what pops up! I have paper dolls of her that were illustrated by Ruth Wood. They are fascinating! And get this, her best friends were Susan Hayward and Mae West! Susan actually bought my Mother a Scottie dog!"
*** BLOG DU JOUR ***
It’s always a good day for something pink, but since I’m wearing a pink and white pinstripe shirt, I’ve chosen Pink Latte today. It’s written by Helle Greer. Helle lives in California and collects vintage typewriters. She went to a great estate sale yesterday and I think you will drool over the photos she has posted.
