Tony Curtis Dies At Age 85

Josephine (Tony Curtis) and Daphne (Jack Lemmon)
My favorite comedy movie of all time is Billy Wilder's classic comedy "Some Like It Hot". IMDB describes it thus:

"When two musicians witness a mob hit, they flee the state in an all female band disguised as women, but further complications set in."

Even after 50 years and I don't know how many times I've seen this movie I still find it hilarious. Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon were so very funny in this movie and Marilyn Monroe was a scream. If you haven't seen this gem I can't recommend a movie more highly.

I will raise a Manhattan to Tony tonight.

To All My Friends From Ocean Edge

To all of our friends from Ocean Edge: I was so sorry to read this morning that Lorraine King has passed away at the age of 50 from breast cancer. Although I only saw Lorraine irregularly I always appreciated her warmth and kind spirit. When she ran that bake shop I never thought that I'd want to see another Key Lime Pie again. Now whenever I see one I think of her. It'll be that way until I kick off too.
