..... OR Mermaids & Sailors .... They go well together, no matter in which order I place them. These are two of my favorite subjects that I pursue in Art, Literature, Film, Music, Antiques & Collectibles and the Decorative Arts. I will be sharing things here from my collections and other items from the internet that I find appealing to me.
..... I also enjoy all things related to the "Seven Seas", which, of course is the domain of both, Mermaids and Sailors. This may include oceans, islands, ports & harbors, beaches, sea creatures, and classic sailing ships, to name a few.
..... So, relax and enjoy the sometimes wild, but always wet, world of Mermaids & Sailors !!

" Mister Roberts " … A Comedy/Drama film  starring Henry Fonda, James Cagney, William Powell and Jack Lemmon and set aboard a US Navy cargo ship in the South Pacific during World War II … With a tyrannical and wacko Captain and a bunch of Sailors full of antics, the film is full of laughs.
