Quote of the Damn Day: Lauren Bacall


The other night I was going into a doctor’s office, and some son of a bitch came out of the building, almost knocked me over. I said, ‘You’re a fucking ape!’—screaming at him. He never even turned around. Couldn’t care less, this big horse of a man.

[Ms. Bacall has a hip fracture currently and uses a walker to walk to her physical therapy appointment. The Moms says young people today have no gumption, and I think for the most part, she is right. Ms. Bacall obviously has loads of it, and I adore her.]

Heh-heh. We are both reading Vanity Fair. Bacall is a real woman. I love her too. Not nearly as much as I love you, though.

Good for her! When I was getting over my hip op I found it was the old age pensioners that were the rudest bastards out there, I think they were jealous that my walking frame was shinier than theirs.
Love ya! xxx

I read her autobiography back when I was first married - 30 years ago! - so it was missing the last couple years but she was an admirable lady even then.

I think she's correct too and the Moms.

Not that I am picking ... but the future is now... if something isn't done at this time, it will never even be attempted...

...but when it comes to the battle with between the rich and the rest, the battle is over and the winners have been decided... and they all get tax cuts..!

That;'s a cute quote and I can hear it coming from Lauren Bacall, who tells it like it is.
Have a great weekend SB.

Imagine knocking over Ms Bacall and not stopping to say sorry. In fact, imagine knocking any elderly lady askew with her walker and not apologise.

Guy's a total wanker.

Ms. Moon,
I love you MAS!

Vix,
I'm certain that it was jealousy. Certain.

Jeannie,
They are certainly right. Love you.

Christina,
You are my idol of fashion.

Dovie,
I adore you!

Big Mark,
You can say that again, buddy.

Guy in the silk tafetta dress,
Ms. Bacall rocks. You know it, brother.

PF,
I love you.

Ali,
Yes, I would have liked to have gotten a hold of him!

Hmmmm....calling someone a fucking ape could have resulted in another fracture. Just sayin'. I prefer to not mouth off at people, but maybe just trip them. In her case, maybe she needs to carry a cane for that.
