This photo isn’t in very good condition, but I still love it. I believe it’s from the early ’80s. That’s my gorgeous mother, BarbaraB, on the right, and her stylish friend Ursula on the left.

BarbaraB doesn’t have a look of disapproval on her face, but something about her expression — plus the angle and distance between Mom and Ursa —  made me think of the famous picture of Sophia Loren eyeing Jayne Mansfield’s bosom.

Ursula was so chic and severe. She reminded me of sex-ay villain Ursa from 1980’s Superman II. Hmmm … she even has the full sleeves.

Sarah Douglas as Ursa in Superman II.

The names are awfully close too. OMG! Ursa survived Superman II and was living a quiet civilian life in Mahwah, N.J.!

    I love that picture of Sophia – someone gave it to me as a birthday card once (I believe I was Jayne).

    The pic of your mom is classic – gawd, don’t you just love the clothes and the make-up and that hair!?
