I heard that this morning on Morning Edition too. And it’s about bloody time for them!
On a related note, the local newspaper ran an article about one of the 3 surviving WASP members, who doesn’t live that far from me. She should be in Washington for the ceremony, but I’d love to get some sit down time with her and get some stories!
You tell me! Here is a small list of WASP pilots and their bios. Wonderful stories, the whole lot of them, but to be quite honest, I find Marie Marsh, Adeline Ellison, and Deanie Parrish quite attractive.
But that’s the problem. They’re cute, but they can’t GET you up to FL300!
(well, they could get you up to FL300, but they couldn’t fly you up to FL300.)
I don’t know if you were understanding me though. If I were alive back in their prime, I’d find the ones I mentioned rather attractive. It’s like Julie Newmar in her prime (around the time of the original Batman series). Very attractive.
All the more proof that she’s still got it, and no plastic surgery to boot! Her legs put Mariah Carey and her insurance policy on her legs to shame. Just some of the pictures at her website tell the tale.
I could go on for a while on Newmar, but back on topic… Seeing how she was 50 years ago, and that the WASP pilots were roughly on the high end of that generation, if I lived back then, they’d be lookers, for sure.
Ahh, to hell with it. The WASP ladies are wonderful… but I’ll take Newmar!
