“I suppose,” says Spence, “that you want to start by mentioning she had nice teeth.”

“No,” says Admin. “Although it’s true. But I was wondering whether any of the readers of the blog ever saw her in person.”

“Did you?”

“No. But my parents did. They once found themselves in the same hotel as Taylor and Burton. A small hotel with a nice little sitting area where you could have drinks. Apparently those stories about her lavender eyes were true.”

“Why don’t you call your dad and get more details?”

“At this hour? He’ll be racing that boat of his or lifting weights or making that grapefruit marmalade. But one other thing about Elizabeth Taylor – she was a dog person, no doubt about it.”

“Starred in the first Lassie movie?”

“Yup. And had lots of dogs in her life. We’ll put a link down at the bottom.”

“What about this Iditarod 2012 thing the Plunderers are plotting about?”

“Sounds good. Let’s ponder.”

“Ponder and plunder.”

“You said it.”
