Lucille (aka Lovely Lucy)

Tom Jones may have said it best when he sang, “she’s all you’d ever want, she’s the kind I like to flaunt and take to dinner…she’s a lady, oh, whoa, whoa, she’s a lady,” and this lady has a spunky new attitude! This once ugly duckling has turned into quite a swan. Her drab, schoolmarm attire just didn’t come close to matching the sassy sophisticate inside. Believe me when I tell you she is no wallflower. This gal is yearning to kick up her heels and quickstep across your living room floor. So, go ahead. Take her home, and finish the song… “talkin’ about that little lady, and the lady is mine.”

Two Ladies From Boca

These two sisters spent their whole lives in Boca Raton. They spent endless hours fundraising for the Boca Junior League, selling cookbooks and being doting wives while their husbands enjoyed long days at the club. And let’s face it; they also spent more than their share of time at the beach. In fact, the sun had begun to take its toll and their deadbeat husbands were the first to notice. After receiving their substantial divorce settlements, these young women decided to pamper themselves for a change. They went to the preeminent cosmetic surgeons in the country, spent time at the best spas, found an outstanding personal trainer and now they are back on the market. In fact, Midge has already snared a fine young thing that swept her off her feet. Madge is still enjoying all the new found attention, but understand this fellas, a sexy divorcee like her won’t be around for long. Her social calendar fills up faster than a Grizzly bear at a salmon buffet. Better step up your game boys (or ladies – Madge doesn’t discriminate), and snatch this doll up while you still can. SOLD!

Frank and Zooey

Most of the other Gunlocke chairs were quite content with their 9 to 5 lives. Attending meetings in crowded smoked-filled conference rooms discussing wheat and corn, and coexisting with the noise of hundreds of telephones and typewriters at the Department of Agriculture was their way of life. Most of them pounded the clock each day and waited for the coveted 20 year watch, looking forward to retiring to an overstuffed storeroom someday. Most were content, but not all. Not Frank and Zooey. Frank and Zooey couldn't wait to shed their drab, government issued uniforms and strike out on their own. They knew there was more to this world than the inside of an office building and they were determined to have it all. One night, after hours, they made their escape, throwing off the vestiges of their old life along the way. Now, reinvented and invigorated they are ready to start their second life. SOLD!
