Swarm


Lucille's cheap drugstore perfume did what her snobby personality couldn't.
It couldn't get a date, but man could it draw a swarm of flies!
Run Lucille run!
Swarms of laughter and happiness on you all he he he!

ROFL!!!! I remember my Mother talking about women and *cheap drugstore perfume*....omgosh....that gives me the biggest laugh!
It was the sign of an era...and other than young girls, the *women* that bought that perfume were usually, hmmmmmmm, well the step UP to flies was a good one! ;-D
Snowed in again......ACK!

Ha ha ha ha
W.O.N.D.E.R.F.U.L.
I imagin eshe must smell like this tree- shaped air- refreshers, some people put on their review-mirror choke).
But snobby or not she has style, her green outfit is really cool.
You did it again, you made my day.
Your new header would had been enough to do so, it is W.O.N.D.E.R.F.U.L. asweel.
Have a wonderfull, sunny, happy weekend
Hugs
Janine

Ok, I am laughing over the bathing cap. BOY! I am JUST old enough to remember watching my cousins syncronize swim at the YMCA and wearing those. Shoot! I even wore them as a kid. You know I adore every illo that you do and the colors/expression/movement don't let me down in this one. Just a joy! And funny to boot. I love the back story.
