Here's a quote by Tallulah Bankhead I copied from Bob's blog. Do any of you remember her? She was a hoot on talk shows. Here's his post about her.

"I have three phobias which, could I mute them, would make my life as slick as a sonnet, but as dull as ditch water: I hate to go to bed, I hate to get up, and I hate to be alone."

Ah, I couldn't agree more! She was something else! We don't see any like her anymore! Thanks for the reminder!

Tallulah was one of a kind. She did what she wanted, when, how, and with whom she wanted.
After we moved to South Carolina we rescued a cat, and because she was Southern, we named her Tallulah Bankhead.
And this cat does what she wants, when, how, and with whom she wants.

I guess there is something in a name.

Gives me the RIGHT shivers.
I HATE owls.

Bob, cats always behave in that manner! Two of my favorite quotes from her are:
I'll come and make love to you at five o'clock. If I'm late start without me.
Only good girls keep diaries. Bad girls don't have time.

The lady had class and style in buckets. If only TV 'personalities/celebrities' today had an ounce of that.

There is a story about Tallulah being at a Catholic Mass--why, I don't know--and as the Priest came down the aisle in these gorgeous purple robes, with a pail of incense at his side, Tallulah was heard to remarkj, "My God! That dress is fabulous, but someone needs to tell him that his purse is on fire."

She used to swear on talk shows without compunction. It was F this and F that all the time. We all howled- in those days ya just didn't. I can't remember who had her on so frequently can you? Was it Paar, Steve Allen, Merv Griffin, Carson?
