The Wicked Sissy:

"I had downloaded the first episode of the new season (7) of 'Once Upon A Time,' and was watching this morning, only to see the wonderful of sights: 'Cinderella,' was thrown from her carriage, (Don't worry, she was not injured) in an absolutely beautiful dress, head-over-heels. In the process, I was treated to the sight of her crinolines from underneath. (Her modesty remained intact, as I was unable to see anything but crinies and her dress.

 

"Here is the best picture I could snap from the program, but I'm sure someone more skilled than I could get a better one.  I believe the whole incident takes place from 2:34 to 2:44, but my version doesn't have commercials, so I cant be completely sure."

"Before MTV Videos you had things like Scopitone and Soundies shorts. The machines were jukeboxes with pictures, and YouTube is
loaded with them; some are packed with cheesecake. Here’s a Scopitone featuring Debbie Reynolds - nice flashes for Pond lovers."

NOTICE

Thanks to my many friends who expressed concern, empathy and condolences; you DID help get me through a very difficult time.

Now, the best way to go forward is just that: Think about life and recognize how fortunate we all
are to be conscious of the wonderful grace our favorite interest adds to ALL of our journeys.!
