Postcard Friendship Friday!

Frankly My Dear I Don't Give A Boop!
I'm posting this postcard sent to me by a friend who is now deceased. I ran across it and decided to use it for Postcard Friendship Friday. She sent this from South Carolina when she was there during a hurricane. I'm not sure if this was sent before or after the hurricane. But she knew how much I loved Betty Boop and it was very thoughtful of her to do that.:)

For anyone who doesn't get the reference it comes from "Gone with the Wind" the movie made from the book by Margaret Mitchell. The heroine Scarlett O'Hara has grown up in a beautiful southern mansion on a plantation. Rhett Butler is the man in her life and they have a tumultuous love affair. I don't want to spoil the story for anyone who hasn't read it or seen the movie so I'll leave it like that. Vivian Leigh and Clark Gable played Scarlett and Rhett. Rhett is disgusted with Scarlett and as he is leaving her he says: "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn."
Just a little different:) See the actual scene when you click the link.

So Betty Boop in a hoop skirt with that quotation is perfect. Betty is so much a Scarlett O'Hara.:)

My next post will deal with my thoughts about Walter Cronkite who died at the age of 92 today on the 40th anniversary of a man walking on the moon. More in my next post.


  1. I love Betty Boop myself.

    We need more acts of selflessness, like what you described, in this world.

    Enjoyed your post...and BLOG!
