  1. Welcome to the blogosphere, Missy! Yeah, my husband thinks nothing of walking past a window in our house in the buff. More Venus and Mars stuff I guess.

    So glad you joined in the fun with blogging 🙂

    • Thank you!! (I do hope you’re chasing him while he’s strolling in the buff. LOL.) I think I still need to pretty the place up a little. As a very good friend of mine said very recently… “Baby steps.” Thanks for being my first comment!!

  2. I am so proud of you! Now I just need to follow your lead. As for the nudity, living alone I don’t think too much of it, but I am always AMAZED at the complete and utter lack of male propriety in regards to nudity. I think it has to do with them not having quite the same body image issues women have. Oh, they have body image issues, but not in the same way we do.

    • Hi Maria!
      Thanks! (I’m still figuring this out.) Yes, I think (some) men definitely have different body issues than women. They don’t seem to be afraid of letting it all hang out. Literally. (Yes, you knew that was coming. LOL.) Thanks for dropping in! You rock!

  3. I remember an actor frend in the early ninties telling me that everything had changed with the focus on sexual harrassment and that he missed the camaraderie of the good old days. He said it used to be fun to go to a shoot and slap some woman on the butt and tell her she was looking good. He said all that had stopped and people were not sure how to act or what they could say without fear of a law suit. Of course, me being all right and proper, said, “And rightly so.” : )

    I love the story of the towels. Oh, and welcome to the blogosphere.

    • Hi Robena,
      That is so true about the sexual harrassment issue. My story happened about 26 years ago. (Yikes!) I was flustered (and yes, a little angry), but I knew he only meant it as a joke. I don’t think he had any ulterior motives. LOL. And for the record, something similar happened on a different show, but that’s a story for another time! Thanks for the welcome!

    • Hi Veronica!
      Thanks! Let’s hope I have enough to keep you (and everyone) entertained.
      Thanks for stopping in! I really appreciate it!

    • Haha! True. ONE very over-exposed point. LOL. Clearly I need some coffee, too.
      So glad you dropped in! Great to see you here.

  4. Men sure can be proud of their dangly bits, can’t they?

    Hilarious – although, of course, one’s sense of humor is generally shot after 11+ hours on set. Welcome to the wild and wooly world of blogging!

    • Hi Beverly,
      Yes, they can! That is the truth! LOL. Yeah, my sense of humor was long gone at that point. I just wanted to go home and after that I think I RAN home. LOL. Thanks for the welcome and for stopping in!

  5. GREAT first post, Dee!! As you know, I used to produce large stage shows, and a number of them back in the 80’s were 50’s and 60’s artists. I had the same experience that you did when I went to get Lou Christie (“Lightning Strikes, “Two Faces Have I” – we’re talkin’ OLDIES here, LOL) from his dressing room. I knocked, and he also said he was “decent”. I learned the same thing that you did when I opened the door – that “decent” definitely means different things to people! And it wasn’t the last time that happened to me either – Gerry Marsden of Gerry and the Pacemakers and his wife were full-on nudists, and liked to run around that way back stage…YIKES! Needless to say, it created a bit of a “situation” for the other artists on the shows!!

    Congratulations on your first post! YAY!

    • Hi Julie!
      What is it with guys and their pants (being off)? LOL. Bummer you had to go through it twice. I’m finding myself lucky it was only the one time. Well, kinda… but that’s another story. LOL. So glad you dropped by! Thanks for YOUR great stories!

  6. Hi Dee! SO happy you’re blogging!! Yay! “…letting it all hang out” Ha! I’m so going to try and get the actor’s name out of you when I see you next. 🙂

    Happy blogging!

    • Hi Robin!
      My lips are sealed, baby!! LOL. (It’s a fairly obscure show anyway…not sure you’d know it.) So glad you dropped by! Great to see you!
