The DRAGON LADY'S BAR

You never knew at the Dragon Lady's place what would happen to you there.  But a guy can dream can't he?  He might just get lucky. and if he didn't... well it would be the end.  No one would ever know what happened to you.  Maybe a slave ship plying...

A "LEAVE IT TO BEAVER" LIFE

I'm in a far country.  I don't understand much that goes on around me. The things around me seem chaotic.  I am used to order.  I guess I should thank those around me. They keep the order.  I do not contribute to it very much.  This was so even as...

TROUBLE OPENING YAHOO MAIL?

Me too, but I've just stumbled across the solution.  Lately it has been impossible to open Yahoo mail.  I tried everything and it just made a few attempts but didn't open.  Sometimes it took 20 minutes. Or just never. So I tried the right click...

SEXY TUES. IT AIN'T FAIR

 Nobody promised it would be fair, but I kept hoping it would be. We were robbed! When I was young sex was for old guys, When I was getting old it was for young guys. Does that sound fair to you?  So to Scott who this past weekend opined...

SO THRILLED WITH MY OLD RADIO

Having it, or one exactly like it beside me again.  When I got it a week or so ago it was like seeing a long lost buddy again.  I was afraid to turn it on.  The fact that the seller said "It works well," isn't a guarantee it will work well when it...

Manchurian Candidate, daja vu

Usually instgead of spening 10 or $15 on a movie ticket I just wait for the release on DVDs.  If they haven't been talked about much, i will just forget all about them.  That was the case with the Manchurian Candidate.  I forgot about it until I...

IT'S ALL A PLOT

  I knew it.  I mean, one knows when they are out to get one, doesn't one. One is aware.  They are out to bankrupt me.  And their latest tactic is with mayonaise jars.  They are made of plastic and have little ridges impressed in the bottom of...

BEING DEPRIVED AS A CHILD

For one thing, I didn't know I was being deprived.  It was just the way things were. The Depression years, the war years.  They did affect the way I think about things. At that I was luckier than most.  I only recall some of the last of the...

WW ll's POST WAR WORLD

Oh we dreamed about it, those of us who were there.  Those bullet trains, a helicopter in every garage, wall size televisions, cars that looked like rocket ships, ranch houses, hover craft, autobahns. By the beginning of 1945 the magazines were...

GREMLINS! CAUGHT IN THE ACT

Haven't you always suspected it??   You put something down, look away for a couple of minutes and then look back.  It is gone!  It has disappeared.   Very mysterious.  Sometimes it turns up later but not in the same place you placed it.  Or...

SEXY TUESDAY -- AFTER-THOUGHTS

Some times I am accused of living in the past too much, of dreaming of lovers gone by.  I can see why you might think that. But you are quite wrong.  It is not the old lovers I long for.   It is the lost loving I want to experience again.  I long for...

ONE LOVE Has a NEW MEANING

Hot chicks, $14.95!!! I don't know if it is a trend in the way this site works or not.  What I know of Ben makes me doubt it.  But lately we have a lot of commercial sex blogs whe can contact. I've had several that gave me outside addresses to...

The HERO, OUTED

I know, you think that I THINK that I'm a hero.  I do try to be sometimes.  But sometimes I am not.   MY MOST UNHEROIC MOMENT The scene is somewhere in the streets just off Times Square.  A little Italian bar, usually very quiet. But it has a...

DREAM INTERPRETORS - FOUND MONEY

What do dreams of found money mean? In a Curiosity Shop, I had bought an old Steamer trunk to store out-of-season clothing in.  It had no stuff in it except that it hadn't been cleaned.  I pulled the drawers out to dump them and give them a wipe...

LATER THAN YOU THINK... Who KNEW?

By the time I was 19 or 20 I had lived half of my life, when you measure it by the lenghts the years seem to the psyche. 20 years and absolutely nothing had happened.  Twenty years just wasted, marking time. Waiting for the moments when Life Really...

MICE, MICES or MOUSE, MOUSES

No, not like the little animal, but the things you point with on your computer. My old buddy asked me yesterday, when you speak of  your mouse, if you had more than one which would you say: mice?  Or mouses? I'm sure there is a rule somewhere...

WHAT HAPPENED TO SPRING?

Wow!  At 1:20 pm here, the temperature in Farenheit is 81 degrees.  The arbor vitaes and jasmine never even put on their winter red coats.  They are green already and getting greener.  The crabapple has bloomed.  We are on the edge of summer and...

An OLD FRIEND COMES HOME

  Long lost, this friend.  It was my first, owned radio when I went off to school (Yeap, more than half a century ago, much more.)  It sat on my study table at school (we weren't allowed to have them on during study time) It played the first...

NIGHTMARE: FALLING THROUGH THE FLOOR

My recent blog about Rooms for rent, brought back another Unique NYC rental problem.  Kitchen floor rot.  When a city can't grow out much further, it starts growing taller and taller.  Bathrooms often have tiling and resist overflowing sinks or...

FURNISHED ROOMS

It is a sign you never see anymore.  Furnished rooms, Room and board, Boarding house.  You get the wrong idea from old movies.  A room with a sagging iron bed, a cheap dresser, a rump-sprung chair by a radiator, worn linolium on the floor. Very often...

Our SONG

    I feel sorry for all of us, my generation on through later ones, even yours. The generation or so ago, the world war two generation had great songs to become “Our song.” Great, sweeping romantic ballads. Songs of love and separation and...

I'M GETTING FEISTY AGAIN

I'm so fed  up.  I am going to kick this new computer to twisted plastic, and twisted, stomped on electronic guts. They more they try to help me the more twisted I become. I do not have an address bar!   I've got a search bar which doesn't seem...

The FIRST TV

  The first Broadcast of TV in the South (not counting D.C.)was in Charlotte in 1949. CBS-owned WBTV began broadcasting the Indian Head test pattern trials in the summer and by late summer, began regular programs.   I had been chomping at the...

TRIBUTE to UK's EDMUNDO ROS

  Anyone who knows me knows I am just hooked on Latin Music. It is my favorite, whether from the early days when the Rumba or Conga were gaining popularity, to especially when Mambo was king. That includes today also since Salsa is a direct...

MM, was A GREAT ACTRESS

 Marilyn or Norma Jean, or whatever name you call her was a rose of extraordinary talent as well as beauty.  Hollywood never gave her a chance.  They wanted a bimbo and made her that.  They tossed here talent away is if it never mattered. Did she...
