I’m co-hosting this wonderful blogathon with Ruth of Silver Screenings! Let’s get the party started.
We are so excited to announce the Dorothy Lamour Blogathon!
Wouldn’t you agree it’s time we celebrated this talented woman? Dorothy was much more than the sarong she became famous for – she was a singer, an actor, a mother and a dynamic fundraiser of American WWII war bonds.
