Soo greeaat.
I hope you had an opportunity to see them at some point in your life.

I for one saw them a few years back at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC--Lux in a red snakeskin catsuit, Ivy looking so sinister--

Here's to Lux--gone but not forgotten, and Poison Ivy, and their 37-year relationship--

Leila: I never did! They're one of the ones that got away.

Indexy; the more you post, the better I like you. I hope you are not actually someone I know and hate in real life.

I think we're safe. Unless you harbor any hate in your heart for a gal from SC who transplanted herself to Oregon five years ago. Ring any bells? Rouse any fierce desire to duel?

(or any diminutive expression of that name)

(P.S. You & Mrs. Moon sure inspire me to have a blog of my own, if only so I could have one of those lists on the side wherein I would recommend the blogs that both of you write. Love 'em)

No, we should be safe. How's Oregon these days? I have friends there, but no enemies (ha ha).

You should, by the way, I would read it.
