  • Raymonde prefers to be called Ray. We like to say she's 72 but she's actually younger... Truth is we don't know how old she is; she could be 60, or 100 for all we know. For some reason 72 fits her like a glove. 72 is such a silly number and Ray's so silly... that could be it.

    Ray is tiny and delicate. Look at her in that picture: that gust of wind could easily sweep her away if it weren't for those gigantic glasses of hers that seem to be keeping her on the ground. Thank god for the glasses, I say.
