Throwback Thursday

Stana Behavy and Stana Katic
"Stana" is not a name you encounter frequently. My first acquaintance with the name was about 10 years ago on a postcard that that depicted an early 20th Century European "damsky imitator" (female impersonator) named Stana Behavy. My second acquaintance with "Stana" occurred soon after when actress Stana Katic appeared on the scene and made a name for herself starring in the television series Castle.

Jean Shrimpton
Jean Shrimpton was a fashion model in the 1960's and the model for the woman I wanted to become when I grew up. I love the outfit she is modeling in this photo. It is timeless and I would not hesitate to wear it today.

Mr. Billie Herraro
Mr. Billie Herraro was a natural beauty and was femulating professionally about the time I was born... in the late 1940's and early 1950's.


  1. I think many of us are with you in admiring "The Shrimp" It is worth noting that although known as "The Shrimp" she certainly wasn't, at 5ft 10in she's the same height as me.

  2. Stana Katic almost makes your tall list. :)

    1. At 5'9", she made it (as did Jean Shrimpton)
