    Great trove, Deauville slugger. I see Errol and Maria rubbing backs and looking the other way…

      Felix could be quite catty, senorheinz. Indeed, sometimes notoriously so. Her legendary diva-ego probably had her believing she was bigger than Flynn. Plus, Flynn was amigos with Senorita Del Rio, Gatowoman’s more internationally successful and regarded rival. … Then again, maybe one of her horses lost that day at the Hippodrome.
