Library Diva's Guide to Volunteering…











{March 25, 2011}   Tribute to Kitten

I watched “Butterfield 8” in honor of Elizabeth. How can you not adore her in that movie? Brushing her teeth in whiskey, “No Sale” in red lipstick on the mirror, putting that so second rate mink back in the closet and taking the other.

Even when I was 8 years old I always wanted to tell a cabbie that I’d “double his tip for a cigarette…”.

Barbara Walters asked her once what she’d like inscribed on her tombstone and she said  “Here lies Liz. She lived. Wait, no….Here lies Elizabeth. She hated being called Liz. But she lived.”

She surely did….
