  11. Dear Michaela,

    I'm ashamed to count myself as one of the late participants, but I now send you my two entries, a week late! I hope that you will still include them. I have been so busy catching up with earlier articles that I have gotten frightfully tardy during the second half of August. Anyway, here are my reviews of "Week-End at the Waldorf" and "Duchess of Idaho:" and Thank you for hosting this!

    By the way, I would like to invite you to join my upcoming blogathon, the Joe Pasternak Blogathon: Since you're a fan of Van and Esther, you might enjoy writing about one of their many films produced by Mr. Pasternak. We would love to have your talent, if you are free!

    Yours Hopefully,

    Tiffany Brannan

    1. Thanks, Tiffany! I know how easy it is to get behind on posts. I appreciate you still contributing.
