Thank you to everyone who read my blogs during Mary Wickes Week! This was one of the most pleasureful writing experiments I’ve every done and I’m so happy that I’ve got such positive feedback from it all!

You can consider this blog entry a “table of contents” for the project, for those of you who wish to read or re-read blogs from my week with the cantankerous, brilliant actress:

(#1): Introduction and Biography of Mary

(#2): “and on to the next performance” – The Letters of Bette Davis to Mary

(#3): “My dear, dear Mary” – Letters from Broadway Royalty: Angela Lansbury, Ethel Merman, Richard Rodgers,  and Rosalind Russell

(#4): Letters from Mary’s Famous Friends, including Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Irving Berlin, Richard Nixon, and many more!

(#5): Mary, The Visiting Nurses Association, and The Television Pilot That Never Was

(#6): Mary and Lucille Ball – Treasures from a friendship with TV’s favorite redhead

(#7): Mary Meets Walt Disney and My Nostalgic Connection to Miss Mary Wickes

I also have a very SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: 

After a bit of musing on the subject, I’ve decided to create a Patreon account!

For those who don’t know, Patreon is a way for people to donate each month to help me continue to write, and podcast, and sing! As much as I love these things, they take a plethora of time and effort to do well and, as they say, time is money!

You can follow this link to learn more about Patreon and visit my page to make any size donation you wish!

(Again, this is completely voluntary on your part, but it would be much appreciated!)

**I thank you for spending the entire week with me to celebrate the life and times of character actress Mary Wickes!**

I invite you to visit my new website,! I’m very proud of my new creation and would love to hear your feedback about it.

And  the newest episode of my podcast, The Objectivist and The Vegan, has been uploaded to SoundCloud

    Am Maria 21yr from England, my boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: ,you can also call him or add him on whats-app: +2348071622464.

    There are many things when it comes to using chat lines for dating that everyone should be aware of and knowing this once you get started will help you find that special someone. Everyone has some kind of expectation or high hope that when they start using the best dating sites that love will happen instantly and that is not always the case. Knowing that it might take some time to find that significant other will help you adjust in meeting new people without being disappointed. Finally I’ve found my favorite one – the perks of this amazing phone chat is you get to speak to them directly and hear the enthusiasm in their voice which makes the experience so much sweeter.
