As I am watching this week's installment of Mad Men on On Demand, I am again transported. Transported back to the 60s, when work such as advertising was glamorous, women were gaining a foothold in the business world (but not enough) but there was also still discrimination against blacks and women. Jon Hamm is such a hunk. He almost makes all the negatives worthwhile. Like the cheating. But the little vignettes where his wife Betty is role playing. Is she complicit in his cheating? If you don't follow what I am saying, you must catch up on your Mad Men watching.
I just returned from a week at Destin, thanks to my parents. They let me stay at their condo in Destin. I invited two friends, and we had a blast. Not only did we grow up together, but we have common problems today. So it made for a great bonding week. We ate, we swam, we talked, we watched chick flicks. We will be friends forever. And we will be there for each other forever. And we will go to the beach again. Where I am reborn.
