Can't get enough!
I adore men but love women. Besides Frank, I share my life with many of the female persuasion. We've talked about "it" before. That magical concoction that causes you to immediately connect. I'm blessed to have a gaggle of "it" girls in my life. Friends for life from the moment we met. It's strange how that first impression can form a life long bond. And yet, looking back that's exactly what happened.
"T" Time
She was wearing a down vest when nobody, I repeat nobody wore down vests. A mane of chestnut hair framed a face that was beyond lovely. And yet, it was apparent that she cared little for appearances. Her true beauty was talent. When she picked up a pencil all things botanical became magical. From that day we met and on we've been as close as two friends can be. Shared tears and laughter enabled us to survive broken marriages, lost loves, and idiotic dreams.
I can't imagine life without her and am happy knowing she'll always be there.
Golly "G"
Everybody said she was tough and trust me, she was. She zoomed around the agency as if she owned the place. Nobody messed with her, you simply did what you were told. Then she stopped by my office and I discovered that the most powerful thing about "G" was "G"! The essence of Hepburn grace, beneath that tough exterior lurked a pussy cat. Immediately ready to do anything, expecting nothing in return. Her real strength is deep within her. I've watched her leverage that inner power to overcome infidelity, uncertainty, and cancer. Many tears later, she is my daily inspiration.

"D" Day
It was strictly business. We met via telephone.
Her company was partnering with our client.
My agency was assigned to build a campaign.
Sight unseen, her confidence, charm, and candor
immediately engaged. Then we met face-to-face
and fireworks! She entered the room looking like
a movie star. A glowing orb of perfectly coiffed
auburn set off an elegantly tailored, subtly chic
ensemble. Everything about her was perfection
and yet she was totally "real". You see, warmth
and kindness are her most charming qualities.
I fell in love that day and over twenty years later,
still feel the same. If only I didn't like boys...
I've had many work wives. Consumed professionals who I spent most of my day with. "M", "S", "LVB", "B", "E", "L", "A", and "K" the queen of this realm. For over eight years at two companies we were inseparable. She's smart, witty, and a bit of a bitch... a glorious, divine, and fabulous one! We first "clicked" sitting in adjacent seats in First Class. The red wine started to flow until finally, our exhausted flight attendant gave is our own bottle(s). Ultimately our friendship grew far beyond work. We've shared secrets nobody else knows. Not even our husbands!

To name a few...
I know that right now several of you are disappointed that you were not one of the above. While today I didn't write about my Tiffany jewel, Red Headed Stepchild, Valley Girl, Duluth Diva, Plano Playmate, Bosom Buddy, Korean Bombshell, and others unnamed, you know who you are. Frankly
I am blessed to have all of you in my life.
"A", "B", "C", "D", "E", "F", "G", "H", "I", "J", "K", "L", "M", "N", "O", "P", sorry no "Q's", "R", "S", "T", no "U's" just all of yous listed, "V", "W",  and the only "X", "Y", and "Z" in my life... my darling Frank!
