Mae West: Paws to Consider

There have been horses, cats, and dogs named MAE WEST and usually the blog lets such items pass along on their merry way. However, no smile could be withheld from this tidbit that gives us "paws" to consider. 
• • Apparently, #Pawties and Events are where anipals and humans get together for a Twitterin’ good time.  The #NipClub celebrated a four-legged salute to Cupid on Tuesday, 18 February 2014. We were told this: "Fashions varied dramatically, from the sweetly romantic ballgown of @MaggieMooseTrks to the spectacular black dress and hat with faux ostrich feathers favored by @Doggymolly for her cabaret pawformance as Mae West."
• • Lo and behold, Doggy Molly was all set for a sexy black-tie paw-ty ineed.

• • Despite the phenomenal success that Mae West has been enjoying during the past two years, she will not attain the apex of her screen career for at least three years more, that is to say, she will not reach her highest point until 1938, and she'll be married then, said an astrologer.
