The LOSS OF ADAM

Adam had to die.  That was known from the beginning,  Adam’s day was less than a thousand years (like a day to God) and in that same day he died.  Then the entire kingly line had died out in another (the next) day.  Their lives had  been shortened. No...

FINAL NOTICE! ACTION REQUIRED

This notice came in my mail today.  It was in a legal envelope.  There was a time when this was a crisis mail.  I was about to be sued or something,   Fearing the worst I had to make a stiff drink before I tore it open.  I needed quiet before I...

The Song is NOT TRUE

"I WONDER WHO IS KISSING HER NOW,"  a song that was popular when I was a kid went, "I wonder who is teaching her how, I wonder who is looking into her eyes, breathing sighs, telling lies?"  This song seemed probably right to me at the time,  Thinking...

High Grade Alky burns like Gasoline

I knew you could run an engine on alcohol but thought it was a poor substitute. Yet when I read that last weekend, it put the heart back in me.  I had seen a film recounting how the guerillas in the hills of the Philipines waged war against their...

a MILE STONE in my Recovery

Somehow I forgot my main purpose in life when I checked into the hospital to save or lose a leg.  That was all I could think about for the next five or six weeks.  Even after a successful operation and I finally was released, I still didn't...

SELF FULFILLING DESTINY

Watching a Sadie Thompson bit in the Marx Brothers movie "Love Happy," I found a prime universal theme behind the sub story.  If you are a girl playing off one man against another, you will eventually wind up with the meanest somma bitch who ever drew...

I Like Pulchritude

(Hope I spelled that correctly, it is too much trouble to look it up.) So let me put it another way, I like girls with a little flesh on their bones.  Forget it, bolemians, I've had my fill of you.   Once in college I fell for a skinny babe....

TRYING TO FIGUERE OUT THE PROBLEM

Why am I despondant?  I can't see m to shake the blues.  Here I am, not crippled by an amputation.  A succesful operation with a lot of side benefits, such as weight loss and a resotred leg. I should be deleriously happy but instead negativity has...

Of LIFE and DEATH

I was four years old when my great-grandmother died.  In those days we were not shielded from death.  We knew of it as small children and that no one lests for ever.  My mother had been explaining that the person in the grave feels nothing, their...

ME!! DEPRESSED??? AYUP, THATS WHATS HAPPENING

I've not been entirely honest with you about my recovery from the operation.  I was trying to convince myself  not just you,  telling that I was feeling great and getting ready for all sorts of exercise.     The fact is the operation did go...

"One day I'll get my pecker up...

... and come around to knock you up."   This is a harmless phrase in England, but might get you a slap in the face or a jail term in the US.   An English bar maid and I used to play with this phrase and it halways caused all other...

NOW - I KNOW what went wrong

I was just watching "To Have and Have Not," an old move I love to watch again and again.  When Lauren Bacall saw Humphrey Bogart approaching she came at him,  swishing her hips seductively.  And it reminded me,  I suddenley knew what happened to my...

After Midnight, Still spitting Snow

You can't call this a storm, it is not sticking to the grassy parts of the yard, but it is deep on every car or fencepost or the clothesline.  The air us cold enough to support snow, but the ground preserves some springtime warmth and will not let the...

IF I had known ...

When our marriage was over, how coldly and icely she would tell me we were through,  I would have told her myself, when I had fallen for another woman. But of course I never told her nor let her know of it.  I said goodbye to that woman and  went on...
