Comments On Style


Margaret today is seen as a sprightly 76-1/2 year old considering herself lucky as she enjoys her “uncrustables” sandwiches that she deems perfect. She also believes "there are three blonde icons in our recent history who are recognized throughout the world -- Marilyn Monroe, Princess Diana, and Tinker Bell." Then as Kerry pauses for dramatic effect, she laughs gently. "You're talking to an icon, Kiddo!"
