Sharing The Moon with Montgomery
I had this beautiful post about the Full Moon. The truth is I'm more fascinated in sharing my new acting love. I fall in love with actors all the time. Those alive and those passed on.

He was a wonderful actor and I plan on looking for more of his films. I have already ordered two of his films from the library and they should be coming by next week.
