Ready to Ride: Francine's First Snow Storm

As many of you know, Francine grew up in Los Angeles, and then spent many years stuck in a back room in Springfield, Oregon.

Today, we are having a blizzard in Bend, and it occurred to me that she's never seen snow.


I figured I'd better let her experience it, since there is talk of her going snowboarding soon, for a video shoot. She's a great model, a fine actress, and a good sport, but it's important that she doesn't go in to a new situation "cold," as they say. She needs to understand her surroundings in order to find her motivation.

As her agent and her friend, I needed to see how snow would affect her skin, since she's not really water proof (no synchronized swimming films for her, sorry). I also wanted to make sure she can actually wear boots. She can.

Francine was quite interested in the snow, and thanks to this fabulous Betty Rides coat of my daughter's (from several years ago, these coats never wear out!) she stayed warm and dry.


Except for her face, where the snow hit it. It melted the word of the day on her cheek. So she may wear goggles next time, and perhaps a ski mask, depending on the weather.

Guess what the word was?

I actually think the first anonymous person wanted to marry me last year and deposit large sums in my bank account...alas only one man for me.

As for anonymous #2...I think that might be the word of the day...it says...*&^%whose gonna shovel this %^&* I guess that is more than one word but it takes more charaters to say it!

Oh wow. Spammy friends Francine has there- probably from her time "in the closet". Who knew she was an international online marketing expert with friends in South America and Asia? I bet she has friends in Africa too.

The word of day had to be 'SNOW' as in... there is "snow way" I'm letting you guys butt in on this sweet deal I've got going now..."

Goodness. I had no idea Francine would inspire so many money making potential comments. She's like a gold mine apparently.
