About a year ago, after an online cooking demonstration, a friend of 
a friend reached out to me about a difficult situation. At sixty years old,
she had finally met a man who, she said, was the love of her life and then
he was diagnosed with neck and throat cancer. It had just happened. and they were gearing up to fight it. She asked if I could connect them to my former
husband, Edward Van Halen, so they could get the latest and best information
on where to go and whom to see for treatment. Ed knew quite a bit about this particular type of cancer from his own long battle wih the disease.

Q:  Do you have any bookish posters or artwork on your walls?
A: No. But I have them tattoed on me, so does that count?! They're on the walls of Freda.
I have two Maya Angelou tattoos.

    I hope you have a great weekend! Thank you for hosting!

  5. VB looks great! Seeing her face on the cover brings back memories of childhood tv!

  6. Isn't Valerie B. lovely? I bet the book is too. I had a quote on the wall of my library. "I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library."

  7. Love your tattoos! I've been thinking about getting a literary tattoo but I am too chicken to get one.

    1. Thank you! I hope if you do get one that you share with us!

  8. Sounds like a good memoir. Got me curious :-)

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
