Happy Anniversary -- Scott and Zelda
During the height of last year's Gatsby roaring twenties overload, the Huffington Post published a list of 12 Things You Didn't Know about Scott and Zelda. Well, we knew them, but I must confess, it was the first time in years that I had seen the word "furbelows" in print.
In honor of Scott and Zelda's anniversary, I though I would give a shout out to gin...no wait...a shout out to two relatively new books I enjoyed.
I wrote about it in February, so you can check it out, here. One of the six flappers is Zelda. (Speaking of Alabama, one of the other flappers is Tallulah Bankhead.)
Zelda died locked in a mental institution. Scott died broke with his books out of print. One does hope there is a heaven. That they are happy and know that we still love them.
And now...I am off to be careless and drink gin...
