C is for Cleopatra

Cleopatra was 39 when she died in August of 30 BC.
Among other things, she had an extramarital affair with Julius Caesar, though who can blame her as she was married to her brother at the time. After Caesar’s death she aligned herself with Mark Antony, probably because he wooed her with his R&B top 10 hit “I Need to Know,” but things went south for the couple after a military loss.
Lucky for me, there are no poisonous snakes on Cape Cod.

Cape Cod? You're only a couple of hours from me, then. I live in Southern Massachusetts, on the Connecticut border.

Yeah, ol' Cleo was pretty much of a party girl, from what I've read. I once saw a coin with her image on it. She wasn't the stunner that the movies make her out to be.
