I have been tagged by Debbie of Cozy Cottage. OK ..... I'll Show and Tell! LOL I am to tell you 7 strange and /or random things about myself. I have given this much thought. So here goes.......
1- My first kiss was Tom Jones.
2- My mother and I made a pack that she would contact me after she passed by using the song "Autumn Leaves". I have been playing Debbie's music from her blog while I am writing this and wouldn't you know that as I type this the song Autumn Leaves came on in her line up of songs from her blog. I am so awed. All I can say is "Hi Mom" and Thanks Deb!
3-Brace yourselves for this one....are you ready... my favorite color is not PINK. I know..... after the smelling salts get passed around I'll tell you that I love green. All kinds of green. My engagement ring was not a diamond but an emerald.
4-My favorite affirmation is " Don't wait for your dreams to come true. Your dreams are waiting for you to come true."
I had a friend who was a character actress. Her name was Kathleen Friedman. She was in all the Jerry Lewis movies. You would know her face in a moment if you saw her she worked all the time. She sang in the choir with me at church. Even though she had great success she always had wanted to be on Broadway.
Long before " The Secret" we studied The Science of Mind together at our church. She was a Practitioner. That is something you have to study for 3 years to achieve.
She set the intention that she would be on Broadway. She was a powerful clear thinking woman. A friend of hers was offered a part in a little play in San Diego called " The Full Monty" the friend did not want to do the play so she recommended Kathleen. Kathleen took the part because it sounded like fun even though it was just a small part.
The play was a big hit and went to Broadway and Kathleen was nominated for a Tony Award for her role. They invited her to do her number from the show on the Tony's. Kathleen was in a hit show on Broadway the day she passed away. She was living the dream. She is the one who gave me that affirmation. Everyday to the best of my ability I "come true".
5- I lost a job as a showgirl in the Follies Bergere because I am afraid of heights. The opening number starts at the top of hundreds of stairs and I was afraid to walk down them. They made the stairs really small so it would look like there were more of them and my foot was bigger than the step. I was so afraid of those darn steps. I tried to act cool but they could see me shaking all over.
The girl that got the job fell down those stairs during her first show and broke her leg. By the time I got the call that I could be her replacement I had already moved to L.A. Years later I ended up working as the assistant to the director of the Follies. He lived here in Los Angeles. I guess when you are meant to do something it doesn't matter what you do it comes to you.
6-My first pet was a black and white rabbit named Freckles.
7-I didn't learn to drive a car till I was 40. I got my drivers licence on my 40Th birthday!
OK I get to tag 4 people.........Ha ha
