Some of my favorite things

There was nothing wrong with Great Grandmother Kate making us kids clothes from remnants of upholstery fabrics (kinda scratchy) or even drapes. 
Until that evening in Florida visiting the other half of the family.....
When (after having a couple cocktails) Aunt Gertie threw me aside thinking I was the curtains to the veranda.

Ok, fiction - for the most part -...actually just the funny part. But it still makes me smile, so I'm keepin it.

Were Off

...You'll find he is a whiz of Wiz!
If ever Wiz there was.
If ever oh ever a Wiz there was 
The Wizard of Oz is one because,
Because, because, because, because, because
Because of the wonderful things he does...

I Want to do wonderful things.
I am getting my strength back.
My power back.
No need to ask where its been,
just happy to have a glimpse of it's return.

Perspective - Lovely

Jayne and Terry know that I was supposed to be the next Danny Kaye. He was loving, endearing, witty, highly skilled, sharp.
I am loving, so whew! I get an A on #1. Witty is tough to judge before your dead. Highly skilled - Yes, mostly in obsolete Arts. Sharp - not like I was.

I spent lunch and tour time with a very long time friend Kathi DeFrancis ( 34+ years), her daughter, Angie DeFrancis, and her son PHEONIX sp? (going on 9). Three generations.  It was lovely.

Kathi introduced us to Billy. It was a nice spin back through the circle of life.
