Wait-wait, I never had a chance ....

Easter bonnets are Easter bonnets, but, I mean,
I think I melted ....

I think I am in love, but where did she go?

Have you seen this woman? I was out for a bite to eat earlier today and she walked into the restaurant. All the tables were full, mostly with the Easter Sunday after-church crowd. She walked over to my table and asked if I would mind her company.

You actually think I would say no?

We ordered, we ate, we talked for maybe an hour after finishing the meal. She said she was going to a movie, and asked me if I wanted to come with her.

You actually think I would say no?

As we walked from the restaurant, I dropped my newspaper and bent to pick it up. When I looked back, she was gone. I mean gone, as in vanished. I looked for her outside, went back inside, then outside again, and waited for 17 or 23 minutes. She was gone.

She said her name was Norma Jeane. I did not catch her last name. If you see her, give me a call and let me know where she is, will you? I am in the mood for an afternoon at the movies.

Music Note: Listening to White Lion ....
Specifically, "Pride" ....
Some lines from "Wait:"


Wait-wait
I never had a chance to love you
wait-wait
if only our love could show you
wait-wait
I never wanna be without you
wait-wait
no I never had a chance to love you
now I only wanna say I love you one more time

Fram......
Thank you for your Holiday wishes, only "our" Easter is two weeks from today.
I’ve never seen this picture of Marilyn before, thank you. It is said that those who died young, stay young forever…. Who would want to see this exquisite face wrinkled?...
I love hats and hats love me and men love me in those hats!!!!!!!!!!
Happy Easter!

Katy said...

Now it's your turn not to recognise me Fram. I only went to powder my nose...

:-)

Wonderful picture, thank you. I've never seen that one before either.

I hope you're having a great Easter. I'm not long back from an afternoon & evening of great food and good conversation with the family of my sister's husband. Have eaten far too much...

Happy Easter, Fram :)

Katy said...

PS - my blog for today is particularly for you - your special request of a few weeks ago.

Happy Easter Fram :-)

I just received this joke from Wichita Falls, TX, thought you would appreciate it!!
“One guy said he called his boss and told him he wasn’t going to make it in tomorrow because he has anal glaucoma. Boss puzzled, said “anal glaucoma?” Yes, he said, “I don’t see my ass coming in tomorrow!!”

Natalie .... greetings ....

I wish the photograph of Norma Jeane had included the entire hat, but ....

Is that Russian Orthodox or ???? you are referencing in two weeks? You have made me curious. Now I have to look it up.

I've mentioned age and aging in regard to men who are professional athletes and women who are exquisitely beautiful in the past and, in fact, had done a short piece that I was going to include today, but decided to hold off for another day or two.

Yes, I am certain men love to see you in your hats ....

Fram said...

Well, Katy, that will teach you to fib and call yourself Norma Jeane. What movie did you go to?

It sounds like you had a beautiful Easter Day. Good for you.

I read your blog, and want to think before writing a comment. It seems perfect for Easter, though.

Fram said...

Right back at you, Kelly. Happy Easter.

Hope you had a great day. Mine did include a nice dinner and a nice present.

She's done a runner on you, mate. Legged it with Almodovar. Pedro, I mean. At least he can guarantee her a few movie roles.

But if she turns up again, me ol' mucker, don't forget to serenade her. 'Moon Over Bourbon Street' usually does the trick, as long as you don't reveal your real identity and hide your two overdeveloped canines from her ;-).

Greetings from London,

Fram said...

You kept me laughing five minutes with that one, CiL. People were beginning to stare at me.

Not only will I heed your advice, I will print it and carry it in my wallet. Then, I will retrieve it and read it just before I enter any restaurant in the future. I shall be prepared.

ahhh... which is why we must SIEZE the moments as they are presented!!

Fram said...

Almost missed your comment here ....

I try my best, Rachael, .... but, at times, I become distracted ....

Magdalena said...

Hi Fram! :-) I'm sure you will meet her again and say what should be said. ps. Marylin was very, very beautiful, and so unhappy. Why do things go like that? I will never understand.

Fram said...

Greetings, Magdalena. Time will tell whether or not I meet her again. I suppose it depends on my choice of restaurants, too.

Beauty is on the outside. Happiness, or the lack of it, comes from the inside. You are fortunate to have both. Marilyn never was able to define her inner self, I think.

Magdalena said...

But why people around couldn't help her? I saw documentary film about Marylin and got the impression they were using her. And this is what I can't understand. She was so fragile. She was born to be protected. ps. Choose the right restaurants, PLEASE!!! Warmth! :-)

Fram said...

From what I know, it would seem Marilyn was victimized by many, Magdalena. Beauty, money and fame often attract the worst people among us, and she eventually had all three. If she was not wise at choosing her friends and lovers, no one could have helped her.

Yes, I will work very diligently at selecting only the right restaurants.

Something special ....
