Katherine Hepburn and poodle skirts...

I watched the old movie "Adam's Rib" the other night, starring Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn, and it was pretty good. I usually can't stand Katherine Hepburn. I'm sorry, but I always thought she was terribly overated. She always seems to play arrogant, selfish, feminist types. I do love her in "The African Queen," but that was the only one until I started seeing her films with Spencer Tracy. They are an amazing couple! I am in awe of their chemistry. There is no doubt that they were a real-life couple. When they're angry and spitting fire at each other, it's real. When they're in love and sending witty banter back and forth, it's real. You would never think that they would fit together, but they do. Sort of like Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Bogey was a grumpy, unusual man who somehow became a leading man (even though the only time he looked remotely handsome was when he was really young), and Bacall was this young beautiful starlette. But they fit perfectly. It's really surprising, but completely believable. My favorite Tracy/Hepburn is still "Woman of the Year," though.

My poodle skirt outfit is nearly complete! I think it looks pretty cute. All I have left to do is sew on a hook and eye and get some sheer fabric for a matching neck scarf.

My cousin is at the hospital, about to have her first baby, a little girl, probably at any time now. Everybody please pray for her, that she won't have any serious complications, and that Mom and baby will be healthy!

Until next time,
