I fell in Love with the orient and James Shigeta when I was 12 years old. I stated then that I would marry a man from the orient, (I wanted to marry James Shigeta)I married my husband who was born in Bangkok Thailand In 1949 and lived there for many years. He is very oriential in many of his habbits and all his favorit foods are thai food. Dreams do come true-well mosely. I didn`t marry James Shigeta, but then I figure he is larger then life like all movie stars, If I married him then I would not have anyone to dream about in the far off dream world. sigh...I am just an ole woman now.. ho hum....
