Marilyn Monroe Stamps
A friend of mine just returned from the Dominican Republic where he and his wife went to celebrate their wedding anniversary, and as usual, Russ is always thinking about stuff. I received a 5 x 7 inch envelope in the mail the other day from Cheyenne, Wyoming – not big enough to contain a “secret” anthropological gray paper, and not clunky enough for cookies or jerky, so I was at a loss as to what might be inside.
With the Academy Awards looming on the horizon what was inside was most appropriate – a block of Marilyn Monroe stamps from the Dominican Republic – kokkoi, kokkoi !!
Russ told me that he has a Bert Stern MM page from Avant Garde framed and hanging in his Cali-getaway in Trona (Google that) !!
I might do a wallpaper from one of these photos . . .
“Some Like It Hot” is probably my favorite Marilyn movie followed closely by “The Seven Year Itch“.
Gotta buy an acid free folder for my stamps and put them in a safe place . . .
. . . time for some carrot cake !!
