In Memoriam

4 Jan


Pomchi pistol Mary Poppins VanDyke Brown (age 10-ish) crossed over on January 3, 2017. She battled congestive heart failure for a year, and her tiny body was tired. It was a perfectly peaceful transition; she was in my arms.

From her hard-knock beginnings as an injured country stray to an anxious, long-term shelter resident to a lady of leisure and style with an editorial side job, Mary’s life ran the gamut. Loyal, loving, saucy, and cantankerous, Mary was straight fire, and we’re lucky she came our way. 

Adios, lil’ red sass. Immense love to you. 

Why Death Is an Ironic Mofo

Because Chuck Berry and Chuck Barris within a week, that’s why.

I just can’t with that. Flawless. I might fall over. Spot me. 

While Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds still take the cake, this is another wow moment for the death show, my friends.

Bon voyage to game-show guru and self-proclaimed CIA hitman, Chuck Barris.

Some people called him “The Baron of Bad Taste.” Haters. They were just jealous of his super-slick dance moves. Everyone knows that.

Best. Flower girl. Ever.

Flower Girl Pearl

That gown. That scowl. That finger. 

Congratulations to my daughter, Pearl Mae, on her first flower girl gig. 

She sobbed and refused to walk down the aisle. 

Pearl has everything it takes to win. 

I’ve always said I’d rather die than be a pageant mom, but if anyone knows of any shade-throwing pageants, kindly let me know, because we’re all in. 

(P.S. Obviously, Pearl’s gesture is totally unintentional — fab fluke.)

We’ll miss you dearly, Michelle.

Icon of the Day

20 May


Claire Lovell, geriatric social columnist for Oregon’s Daily Astorian, screams ‘elderly Lisa’ for the following reasons:

1. Her column is called Scene and Heard. Sassy!
2. She begins this column with some grammar policing, then…
3. Shares details of Kay-Lynn’s style show at Dooger’s (and it’s a miracle she made it there alive—someone get this woman a Life Alert!), and wins for “Scarves were freely in evidence.”
4. She’s hot for surfers.
5. Fashion statements and body art: Claire’s got it covered.

For these five reasons alone, my husband will be embarrassed by me on at least a weekly basis in our golden years. He’ll probably spend a lot of time doing his own thing… like surfing, a favorite pasttime. I’ll show up (with my sidekick, Myrna… she might be a drag queen) at the beach and make catcalls. 

Claire is Come Correct’s icon of the day. Heck, maybe the year, who knows?

Fab Alert!
