Friday Flash 55.....

He emplored her...
"Dolores please, just let me try it on for a little while?"

Under the onslaught of his incessant pleading, she relented..
"God Ed, stop your groveling! You could always buy your
own Angora sweater ya know. Besides, I don't mind sharing
my wardrobe, but they always come back smelling like
Old Spice!"

Dolores Fuller was Cross-Dressing movie director Ed Woods
girlfriend and leading lady during the early 1950's. she died
last week in Las Vegas at age 89.
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55

So from the most gracious host from coast to coast...

Monkey Man said...

That's a great tribute to a cult figure. Ed Wood and his leading lady, Delores. Good Show. And as I am sure they said at Delores' funeral "That's a wrap."
HERE is my 55.

KB said...

If my clothes came back smelling of Old Spice, it would be a great excuse to buy new ones.

Have a great weekend all! Mine's up.

hedgewitch said...

Been years since I thought of ol Glenda--or Glen, or Glennie or whatever. And hey, angora is expensive--I can totally understand not wanting to buy his own--er, her own..oh whatEVER!

I'm playin. Here's my visit back to hippyland from last week when Blogger was refusing to play nice:

Anonymous said...

He'd wear women's clothes but not their perfume? Guess he didn't take his cross dressing seriously. :P

Maude Lynn said...

Very clever, sir! But, I don't want my angora all stretched out!

I'll get one posted in the morning (crossing my fingers).

Unknown said...

LOL. Not to mention stretched out.

Mine is up

Happy Friday folks

Margaret said...

This reminds me... my husband wore a fabulous white "Marilyn Monroe" dress once. (I have photos... it would make a GREAT 55!) It was for CHARITY I would like to make that clear. However, when the dress was offered to me to keep, I had to decline as I refused to wear a dress that my husband's waist line looked better in than mine. He still has a 30" waist and I had just had a baby at the time...

My 55

Me said... I'm thinking about my husband trying to wear my!

Hey, sadly I didn't have my camera with me, but I had to get gas today and when the pump kicked back to say I was full, guess how much I owed? $51.55! I am NOT even making that up. The people at the gas station probably wondered why I was laughing...and I'm not making that up, either. :)

So I'm in. Mine is Here.

Janna said...

Poor Dolores!

It takes extra fabric softener to remove the smell of Old Spice.

... Or so I hear. :)

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

PattiKen said...

Well, geez, who can blame him? It's a really nice sweater.

My 55 mentions ladies' wear. Pure coincidence. But my darling wife won't be pleased

Linda said...

Not sharing out my sweaters...all stretched and stinking. Good job.

Here's mine at Roses to Rainbows

PBJdreamer said...

Love Ed Wood.

Hate Angora


Mine is from last week but as we all know Blogger was down so here we go:

Hope that works

that is all

PBJdreamer said...


I am sorry to clutter up your comments, but I could not find an email address for you on your site.

It is tough to link to my Flash 55 because I do not know how to make a link.

Yes that is right...I am stupid about how to do that.

If someone would kindly tell me? I would be ever SO GRATEFUL


thank you, thank you very much

Tammy said...

Loved your 55! Mine is up...I'd give you the direct link but haven't figured it out just yet :s

Vinay Leo R. said...

I wouldn't like my girlfriend's clothes, too much pink there too :D Nice one G-man.

And am back with another 55fic.

The Bandit

Stranger said...

How sad! I didn't know Dolores died last week.

Oh, and Ed and those Angora sweaters.
I must be the only person in the world who doesn't mind Old Spice.

Someone mentioned the Johnny Depp movie about Ed Wood. It was good but not as good at Wood's movies. I must confess, we might actually have a few on DVD for those nights when only campy sci-fi will do.

Happy weekend, G-Man!

Well, my 55 is up. You can find it here

Unknown said...

Another movie I have to add to my never ending list: yay for Friday Flash! :D

Let's see if this html works:

Poetry Is For Everyone

Happy Saturday.
