Olga and her tree

These videos of Olga Georgia came to me via her daughter Olivia, who thought that Olga might not fit my demographic unless I counted her vivid imagination. Surely all viewers will agree, however, that this woman is hard at work. She’s 85, and lives next door to Olivia, who shot the video.

Olga, Olivia wrote me, was an opera singer until she lost a lung to tuberculosis in her twenties.  She continued to perform, mostly in community theater, and also worked in community television, “which led to her brief stint in soft-porn.  Or as she put it, ‘Exploitation!’” Also, in her 70s, “There was belly dancing for a while.”
