Slightly eccentric is how one might describe
Mame Dennis, better known and loved the world over as
I always wished for an aunt just like her - how divine it would have been!
When first published in 1955, Patrick Dennis’ Auntie Mame sold over two million copies and stayed on the New York Times bestseller list for 112 weeks!
It was first made into a play, and then a movie starring Rosalind Russell.

but can you believe that I've never read the book?
Shame on me!!!
Well, no more...
A fresh copy has arrived on my doorstep and I'll be devouring it this week!
I can't wait to get started.
I predict a whole lot of laughter in my future!
Do you have a favorite book or movie that you go back to time and time again?
Happy Monday and make sure you pop back later this week for my
2nd Blog Birthday!
