The Sporting Life of 1957 ICE FOLLIES Figure Skaters...


..."Fancy Free" Georgiana Sutton & Richard Dwyer

and coming in for a landing is

"The Belle of New Orleans" Florence Rae.

P.S. As of a couple of years ago, Richard Dwyer, then age 87 was still skating and can be seen on YouTube if you search. He is absolutely still living up to his name:

Mr. Debonair!

Here is a link:

P.S. I think Richard Dwyer resembles Rob Brydon -- 

we LOVE the British Game show "Would I Lie to You"?

Theme Of The Week - This Sporting Life

We haven't had sport as a theme for a while so feel free to include some aspect of sport or games in your collages this week. Football, cricket, darts, snooker, tennis, etc. So many to choose from and with the Olympics just around the corner seems like a good way to promote physical exercise of all kinds! Have fun!

SCIENCE FICTION or SCIENCE FACT -- First successful clone of circa 1910 Simon and Halbig doll into human being!


 Boy did I have fun with this one. Luckily I had two copies of the same book about dolls. (And I got to hone my skills with cutting those "ransom letter" letters to create words!) I also learned in the UK you call tabloids "red tops".
