TULIPS & LESLEY

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

Where do you suppose the tulips are today?

 What a nice choice. They stayed in the bedroom, but moved to the dressing table so they can be close to Favorite Young Man, or at least a photo of Favorite Young Man from 1997.

Of course, we still don't know who sent the tulips––well, I do, and so does the sender.* I think the problem with the guesses is that they're too obvious. Today's clue is that the sender has a vagina.

Now you know we've been mentioned on each other's blogs, and she has a vagina. I think it's reasonable to believe that the sender is a female blogger, and someone I follow, who also follows me.

I was going to write a post today about the fact that we women own our bodies, even if we're not treated as if we do. Then I visited Shady Del Music & Memories and learned that Lesley Gore died. Thus, I present my favorite Lesley Gore song. It states what I want to say to you, but does so in a much better way than I could:



Lesley was 68 when she succumbed to lung cancer. Once upon a time, I would have thought that 68 is quite elderly. Now, at 56, I think I'm just getting started.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

    1. You can claim it was you. No one will know for a couple of days.

  2. I'm usually good at guessing but this is a hard one. Did the sender buy his vagina at Walmart or Home Depot?

    1. That's how I found out that Lesley died. Shady said he was surprised that neither one of us knew. And it was not Linda Kay.

    1. Cherdo would never send flowers to me. Cherdo is a hateful monster who threatened to draw on my face with a permanent marker. Evil Cherdo.

  7. Hmm, an intriguing hint. Even though Fishducky claims it wasn't her, I think that's a red herring. So, my guess today is Fishducky.

  8. Yeah, I'm doing a tribute to Lesley Gore on Sunday (International Women's Day). I have no idea who sent you those tulips but what a nice thing to do!

  9. Those tulips are holding up remarkably well. My memory isn't what it used to be. Maybe I did send them.

    1. Then go ahead and tell who it is. You get ten entries for a correct response.

  13. It wasn't me. I would have sent pink roses and white daisies, 'cause daisies never tell.
    Wait - it's quite possible that the tulips will never tell either.

    1. The sender asked me what my favorite flower is, and then gave me a choice of colors.

  14. I was sad when I learned that Leslie Gore had died. Her hits were the background of my pre and early teen years. 56! I'm looking at 65 in 12 days! How can that be possible! I think Debra sent you the lovely tulips!
