While I was doing the reading of the excerpt from my memoirs about the making of “On Golden Pond” a few days ago in Thomasville, it hit me with a thud: I am now the same age as Katharine Hepburn was then!!!!!!
I feel worlds apart from how she seemed then, on and off camera. I can’t imagine her being shacked up with a man then. I don’t think she felt yearning for romance. I’m glad I’m how I am but I sure did learn a lot from her.
On another note, I am at Ted’s farm outside of Atlanta with 4 children, 2 are my grandkids, the other 2 are friends of theirs. Just about all the furniture is what I brought from my ranch in California when Ted and I married in 1991. The bed is the same one (from my ranch) that Malcolm was born in. It’s a unique bed, like a bird nest. Now, I have to get them into bed. They’ve made a fort upstairs in the loft where they plan on sleeping. I will get up early to hide the Easter eggs and then get into my bunny suit. Stay tuned for pictures.
