06:20 pm - Friday smile
A long exhausting week, and I'm seeking respite from it all. I think I've found it....

(Backstory the First: Mr John Steed, played by Patrick Macnee in what I still think of as the *real* Avengers, ruined me for all other men. As they say on Tumblr etc, FORMATIVE.)

(Backstory the Second: I have a vivid childhood memory of a tinny radio playing "Downtown" by Petula Clark, and my parents dancing around the living room, smiling.)

(Backstory the Third: Emma Peel's dress sense, in both her everyday wear and her "Emma Peelers," has also been formative for me. In fact, yesterday in the delicious cool I wore a tweed sheath dress, very 60s-inspired, and thought of the great and glorious Mrs Peel all day.)

So tonight, as Master Danger snoozes, I'll pour a glass of wine [note: I need Champagne, but it's not possible until payday] and cue up this fanvid of Steed and Peel set to Petula Clark's "I Couldn't Live Without Your Love." Maybe I'll even dance around the living room and smile, too.

May your end of week be full of good things and smiles!

I am not quite as slim as I need to be for the dress to work perfectly, but a nice jacket concealed the multitude of sins. ;)

Cheers and a great Saturday! [hugs]

With me it was Patrick McGoohan as John Drake, but I wanted to be Emma Peel when I grew up. British actors... *sigh*

Things are going well with the little art quilt project. There will be a post with photos of the work in progress later this weekend.

*hugs* and I offer polite and respectful pats to Master Danger.

I loved McGoohan as John Drake, too, but he wasn't as lighthearted as my beloved Steed. :)

Cheers for the art quilt project, and for you. Happy Saturday! [hugs]

Diana Rigg as Emma Peel ruined my husband for all other women, except me, of course *g*.

Happy weekend :)
