In the midst of the inevitable sadness and heartbreak following the death of our Mother, there has been a bright moment for our family this week. Our niece landed a role in a movie!

A freshman in high school, Carla is playing the part of “Rose” in a period-piece being filmed in Oregon over the next several weeks. Carla gets to dress-up in fancy costumes – and Carla gets to spend a lot of time in make up.

No. Not on her face.

The makeup artist does his magic on her back.

“Rose” has been whipped.

Only a glimpse of the wounds and scars will be shown for a second on the film… but it took hours to apply the graphic details of abuse.

Gee. I hope you had your coffee this morning before looking at my beautiful niece.

Here she is, leaving make-up… heading over to get into her costume… then hair… and makeup on her lovely face.

There. That’s better.

Do you think Victorian-period girls had Blackberries?

Until my next update, I remain, your “watch out Angelina” correspondent.
