And The Band Played On

The scent of white linen perfume and I'm transported, suddenly I'm eight years old dancing in the swimming pool singing Casey Would Waltz with The Strawberry Blonde and thinking of her........

Born at the dawn of the roaring twenties,
Her life reads like a soap opera.
Mama died when she was two
Raised in foster care
The belle of the ball,
She oozes pizzaz
Charm bubbles over
Married five times

Only has one kidney,
Gave her sister the other one
World traveler
Fashion icon
Fashion buyer

Janie Belle......
One of my biggest fans
And I hers
Always and forever

Happy 90th Birthday, Granjanie
You're my favorite, for always.
