Fortunately, it was FaceBook I was dealing with and not heavy equipment. The first thing I saw on my wall (or timeline or whatever it is that comes up on my computer screen) was a fabulous photograph from Stephanie Frieze – ‘our’ girls crossing the road at the crosswalk! Not our current girls, mind you. But they are all lovely hens that I recognize from past associations. Obviously, they exist somewhere out there in cyberspace which is probably where Stephanie found the image.

This one promised to tell me which celebrity was my look-alike based on my FB profile picture. I took the bait, pushed the right buttons and… voilà! Just as we always have known, I’m a dead ringer for the late Marilyn Monroe.

Once again, FB has provided the perfect segue into another day in Greater Downtown Oysterville. For just a nano-second or two, I zoned out and saw that road crossing in Image A but without the chickens. This time the ‘girls’ were Marilyn and me – Marilyn first in line, of course. (She was ten years older than I and we all know the age-before-beauty rule!).

I’m sure with that image echoing (or whatever images do) around in my head all day, life will just be a stroll among the constellations. Or stars. Or wherever old hens and celebrities reside.
