A LITTLE MORE FOR MONDAY –
Here is a collage of drawings from The Philadelphia Inquirer Magazine. It is dated February 16, 1986. All the sketches are autographed to Sally. I wonder if she was long and tall.
I just think this is delightful. So to your delight, single and/or double click on the collage to enlarge and get a closer pink peek.
Yes, these were the golden boys who Dick Clark put on the globe. They were the Philadelphia fellows he could count on in a pinch

Friday Fun –
For those American Bandstand fans, you’ll remember two of the most famous of all the American Bandstand Regulars, sisters Carmen and Ivette Jimenez — the girls with the streaks in their hair.
