Birthday Remembrance :
( March 23, 1905 - May 10, 1977 )
Joan Crawford was born Lucille Fay LeSueur on March 23, 1905, in San Antonio, Texas. She was a good dancer, though, and -- perhaps seeing dance as her ticket to a career in show business -- she entered several contests, one of which landed her a spot in a chorus line. Before long, she was dancing in big Midwestern and East Coast cities. After almost two years, she packed her bags and moved to Hollywood. Crawford was determined to succeed, and shortly after arriving she got her first bit part, as a showgirl in "Pretty Ladies (1925)".
Her first talkie, "Untamed (1929)", was a success. As the 1930s progressed, Crawford became one of the biggest stars at MGM. She was in top form in films such as "Grand Hotel (1932)", "Sadie McKee (1934)", "No More Ladies (1935)", and "Love on the Run (1936)"; movie patrons were enthralled, and studio executives were satisfied.
By the early 1940s, MGM was no longer giving her plum roles; newcomers had arrived in Hollywood, and the public wanted to see them. Crawford left MGM for rival Warner Bros., and in 1945 she landed the role of a lifetime. "Mildred Pierce (1945)" gave her an opportunity to show her range as an actress, and her performance as a woman driven to give her daughter everything garnered Crawford her first, and only, Oscar for Best Actress. Crawford's career slowed after that; she appeared in minor roles until 1962, when she and Bette Davis co-starred in "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962)".
Crawford's final appearance on the silver screen was in a flop called "Trog (1970)". On May 10, 1977, Joan died of cancer in New York City. She was 72 years old. Crawford is interred in the same mausoleum as fellow MGM star Judy Garland, in Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale, New York.

▪She lives in a daydream
Where I don't belong
Cause she is the sunlight
And the sun is gone▪
As I'm continuing to move through the stages of grief, I'm coming to guilt, but for a different reason then the initial one this time. I feel like I shouldn't be starting to heal and move on already. Like I don't deserve to be happy. I know that's not true and that some days are going to be better than others but...it's a day by day process.
Thank you all for bearing with me! 🌸
it’s saturrrrrrrrday 🌟 Tarquins galore! (ps, can you spot our little buffy...)

Who gets you vote as the #goat ? We’re also taking requests now. What’s your #favorite ? Who would you like to hear tonight?
Many miles away from their hometown in Maharashtra, Maratha Light Infantry manning the border at Thang Village in Ladakh, Jammu & Kashmir. Staying 2 full years away from their loved ones, in geographic inconvenience and challenging climatic conditions, taking all in their stride like fish takes to water.
One's life cannot be more purposeful than dedicating it to the nation. Salute to these selfless and extraordinary heroes of our motherland. One of many fulfilling experiences of Ladakh trip - visits to Kargil War Memorial in Dras and Hall of Fame Museum in Leh.
