  6. Tch, tch, Clint...You're losing your edge.

    Hilarious, Peggy! I liked your bringing in those disparate people-- Hercule Poirot, Clint Eastwood and Cecil B. Demille!

    My husband appreciates your comment, too! We have fun doing these. In fact, I look forward to each week's picture!

  15. Wow, I'd never have thought of bringing Poirot (whom I love, by the way) into this MF. Kudos to you, Peggy, and have a great week.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Good thinking, Peggy! It appears that our Mr. Eastwood may have taken one too many hits on the set. He does look rather unsteady.

  17. I just can't see that dapper Poirot trudging through the desert.... even to solve a crime!

  18. I got a sneak preview of Pat and Jerry's takes on it, so I had to change my Clint Eastwood one to something even more historical.
