Walt Disney hit with a bang this day in 1937 with the premier of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The first feature length animated film. Took in $8 million its first weekend.
Critics thought it would be a loser. They referred to the film before its release as “Disney’s Folly.”A lesson learned: Don’t always listen to those who supposedly know more than everyone else.
Who can forget Dopey, Sneezy, Bashful, Grumpy, Sleepy, Doc and Happy? Whistled While They Worked: Heigh ho, heigh ho, it’s off to work we go…..
A happy film. Good to be recalled. Even better, to be seen again.
An old friend in Key West last night. Years since we have been together. Dinner at Antonia’s.
Catch up conversation.
After dinner, Mike had things to do. I decided to stop at the Chart Room. Glad I did.
Met Dee Elder from Kansas City. She lost one breast to cancer.
Seems I am getting a mastectomy education lately. Jenny two months ago in the Chart Room. She had a double. Explained the whole procedure to me. She was happy with her new breasts. Intended having her nipples tattooed on.
Seems women who have had to undergo a removal of their breast(s) want to share the experience with everyone. Dee went so far as to show everyone her breasts.
Magnificent! More magnificent, the work performed by the doctors.
Dee had only one removed. She had papillary breast cancer. She explained papillary cancer does not jump from one breast to another.
Her breasts beautiful! Both balanced and appeared the same in size, etc. The doctors do some work on the remaining one to make sure the two breasts look alike when all is done.
We got into nipple tattooing. Thanks to my previous conversation with Jenny.
Dee’s nipple was tattooed. I could not tell. A 3-D tattoo. The shadowing made it appear slightly erect.
Dee told me that only medically licensed tattoo artists were permitted to do the tattooing.
Should my mastectomy education continue, I may write a book on the tattooing aspect. A follow-up to Irma and Me.
This is Dee’s 23rd visit to Key West. Once a year for 23 years.
She is here with her husband to the 26th so I anticipate running into her again. She will probably expose her breasts again. She is proud of them. Good for her!
Need some help. I am looking for Julie from Canada who I met a few weeks ago at the Chart Room. The same Julie I had written about two times earlier re her split toe ring and its magical influence upon Key West during Irma.
Her husband, Conrad.
Julie, please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I need your assistance in something I am doing.
Big event tonight! Custom House from 5-9. A holiday concert and bazaar. Guaranteed to be a winner! My friend Dr. Cori Convertino involved with the event.
The tax bill in reality our government for sale. To the rich donors who fill the Republican election coffers with mega dollars.
They want to rule the country……from the shadows.
Trump working his alienation powers again today. At a meeting of the UN General Assembly. A vote regarding the U.S. having declared Jerusalem Israel’s capital and advising it would be moving its embassy there.
The U.S. is going to take a beating. A big one!
Trump has advised that those who vote against the U.S.’s position could face repercussions. He threatens to cut aid to any such country.
Niki Haley said the U.S. would be taking names re those who vote against the U.S. position.
What kind of bullshit is this? Trump’s way in this regard similar to those of an authoritarian figure. Men like Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Adolph Hitler and Joseph Stalin.
No way to make friends! No way to keep friends!
The Mayflower Compact signed this day back in the 1620’s by the Pilgrims before they disembarked from the Mayflower at Plymouth Rock. Signed by 41 adult male Pilgrims.
No women were permitted to sign. Second class citizens back then.
It took a few hundred years. Women however have come a long way!
Enjoy your day!
