    I loved this story....can't believe it's been ten years since the calendar came out!

    If you haven't seen the film, you need to rent it asap! I guarantee that everyone here would love it.

    I would have to have something to do some serious hiding like she said a little larger and a bit lower..lol I wish I had know how everything takes a turn and I would have taken more pics and enjoyed what is now a memory of a good body.

    Hey - great idea - we could cover our modesty with FQs!

    Okay back to the original msg - sounds like fun to me! However, it will take more than "fat" quarters. Yards and yards and yards........

    Oh, saw Shirley Valentine again the other day - even Hans liked it! And he loves the Full Monty, don't think he's seen Calendar Girls though!

    I'd love to be January in the calendar but unfortunately, I'm all out of fabric! (yeah, yeah! :wink: )

    :D :D :D :D You bad girls! Too funny! Personally, I would do January because at my age I don't know if I have any dignity left worth preserving! Actually, any left worrying about!
