  •  My husband wasn't fond of Bardot or Mansfield-- (0+ / 0-)

    but Jane Russell works just fine. These days the only women on TV who don't look like Cameron Diaz (tall, toned and lanky) are on Lost Girl on SyFy channel and on Cult--which I watch despite the typically boring Hollywood stud because it has RObert Knepper.

    I kinda laugh these days at myself beleiving I was fat.  When I turned 50, we wer eliving in Japan, and we were having dinner at the military hotel in Tokyo (having spent the day before at Disneyland there).  I had on a stretch velvet gown in burgundy, and you couldn't wear a bra or anything but a thong and thigh-highs.  I realized I was cold, and asked my husband to get my Spanish shawl (one of the few good points of husband who deploy is they bring home great presents), and he was doing so while I headed to teh restaurant.  I am normally oblivious to male appreciative stares--that notion that I ws fat stayed with me--so I failed to notice that a man around thirty, was so busy watching me walk away that he literally walked into a wall.

    He and my husband talked while waiting at the elevator, and  he learned the guy was a Maine, there with a few Marines on a weekend pass from Camp Fuji (think very primitive).  The Marine invited us to meet them in the bar. We did, and I could not buy a drink. Nobody touched me. ANd I felt maybe 50 wasn't the end of the world!

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
