Runaway Dames!

Please ladies - stay put!

I have heard the term "Dame" and understand it is quite an honor. Do you think of some women who you don't think are deserving of the title?

Granny Annie: I'm sure there must be - I'll give it some thought.

Maggie Smith has always been a favorite--a member of the pantheon of British actresses, like Judi Densch and Helen Mirren.

Cheers.

I love to have tea with them and chat, I bet they'd be quite interesting. Look at Dame Maggie's eyes, and that little smile...

These are great looking ladies. The first time I heard the word dame in English I thought it was used like in French. In French a dame (sounds like cat, not like the English word) is a very common word. It is short for madame. You would say in French – there are 3 gentlemen and a lady in the room – il y a trois messieurs et une dame dans la piece. Also every time you go in a store where there are men and women you say “Bonjour M’ssieurs – dames.” So It’s funny for me that the English used it as an honor title.

Randall: all excellent actresses - some more likeable than others.

GG: yes but maybe one at a time:)

Gypsywoman: Jane looks so young but I expect she will age a bit playing Lady B.

Vagabonde: yes I like the way one is always greeted in the baker's in France.
