Rosemary Clooney is my role model. Yes, I write English speeches and papers on her. Yes, I have trouble cutting out information and staying within the given time frame/number of pages. But she was truly an amazing and strong person. One of the number one things I love about her is her smile and her laugh. Half the time words cannot express how much I admire her. So, here are some of my favorite Rosie pictures:
Her smile is just always so bright.
The fact that she's with dogs should be enough.
This I "received" as a "gift" from Nat last year in the birthday collage she made me.
Her laugh. She lights up.
One of the few colored photos I have of her. So pretty.
This one's one of my all-time favorites.
Her smile again. It never looks forced or fake to me.
Starting out with dear ole Tony Pastor.
This is a close second for favorite Rosie pictures.
I feel like this picture shows her
true, other side, her more depressed side.
What I would give to have been in that crowd...
Again with the laughing and the smiling!
Two of my favorite things: Rosie and pools.
First: Admit it. This lighting is so cool.
So young and with Frankie Sinatra!
With daughter Maria. She looks like such a caring mother.
With sister Betty!
The entire Ferrer gang: Rosie, Jose, Miguel, Maria, Gabriel, Monista, and Rafael (probably not in that order.)
And there's that smile again.
If you ever feel like getting your ear talked off, ask me about Rosie. I would give you a quote here, but I'd have to look through This For Remembrance if I wanted to find a decent one. Instead, I shall turn off my sad Band of Horses song, take out my contacts, brush my teeth, and head to bed. I shall leave you with a Rosie song!
Yes, I'm going, I'm going!
And someone help me remember that I still need to write a letter to dear Rosie before next Friday!
