Odds and Ends

The two greatest dance songs of all time are from such vastly different eras it makes me wonder about my taste in music (but not much)- “In The Mood” by Glenn Miller and “Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson. If it ain’t got rhythm it ain’t music and it ain’t poetry – hell, I bop in my seat at the symphony! (I’ll give it a 75 Dick – it’s got a good beat and you can dance to it!)

If a motor vehicle comes with a roll bar as standard equipment, shouldn’t you be thinking long and hard about why?

My husband was watching our new little boy kitty chase his tail….
Husband: It must be nice to have a toy attached to your body
Me: Don’t all men?

It took him 2 beats to get it…

Friends – Do you define them OR Do they define you?

I had different sets of friends. There were the classical music friends who wouldn’t be caught dead in a pop music venue and the friends who wouldn’t go to the opera if you paid them. And jazz people are TOTAL music snobs I had my arty friends to go gallery and museum hopping. My upper east side friends, my Harlem friends and my Village friends. Friends who couldn’t read or appreciate anything past a comic book and friends who were college professors.

Where ever my curiosity took me, that’s where I went and I never found anyone who wanted to go to all the places I did – so different social circles for different curiosities…Like Jerry Garcia said “What a long strange trip it’s been”
