Laughing and Scratching was a phrase my father used to say on his radio show and it has stuck with me as the vernacular for “farting around.” It’s been a little while since I last posted and I’d like to say I’ve found the answer to world peace or done something terrific. The fact is, I’ve done my job, which is a privilege, and I … Continue reading Laughing and Scratching
When I was a young child, I always had my nose buried in a book – sometimes to escape the strange twists and turns that life had already thrown at me, sometimes because the story or the information was so interesting, I couldn’t bear to look up and pay attention to the world around me.

It was an excellent play. The acting was very good and truly, a good time was had by all! The play was Five Flights (more specifics can be found … Continue reading Supplement to the previous post – my showbiz relatives
Where the heck, you may wonder, have I been? Not blogging for 10 days! Geez louise! Sorry ’bout that – for a time life did intervene and then for a time the computer from which I usually blog decided to get colicky on me and required a little burping from the computer folks in Bawlmer.
