For Women Of All Ages

      

                

Only women of a certain era will fully appreciate this true story.

(if you don't understand this, tell your mother, she'll get it)


A Michigan woman and her family were vacationing in a small new England town where Paul Newman and his family often visited.

One Sunday morning, the woman got up early to take a long walk. After a brisk five-mile hike, she decided to treat herself to a double-dip chocolate ice cream cone.

She hopped in the car, drove to the center of the village and went straight to the combination bakery/ice cream parlor.

There was only one other patron in the store.  Paul Newman, sitting at the counter having a doughnut and coffee.

The woman's heart sk ipped a beat as her eyes made contact with those famous baby-blue eyes.

The actor nodded graciously and the star-struck woman smiled demurely.

Pull yourself together! She chides herself. You're a happily married woman with three children, you're forty-five years old, not a teenager!

The clerk filled her order and she took the double-dip chocolate ice cream cone in one hand and her change in the other. Then she went out the door, avoiding even a glance in Paul Newman's direction.

When she reached her car, she realized that she had a handful of change but her other hand was empty.   Where's my ice cream cone? Did I leave it in the store? Back into the shop she went, expecting to see the cone still in the clerk's hand or in a holder on the counter or something. No ice cream cone was in sight

With that, she happened to look over at Paul Newman.

His face broke into his familiar warm friendly grin and he said to the woman,

"You put it in your purse."

We had such good actors and actreses when we were young.  And good looking too.  Too bad so many of them are gone.
But I guess these young people feel the same way.  Marlene

Yeah, things like that happen. In my case, it was a certain female singer that came onstage after I did. I always admired her from afar and when she approached me, my years of stage presence totally abanded me. I was reduced to the words of a thirteen year old and just babbled. She finally grabbed my hand, pulled me closer and whispered, "Relax, I don't bite" to which I responded, "Me neither." Smoooooooooooooth !
