To Be Six Again

HAVING A (it is not a Jack Daniels, are you shocked) GLASS OF MILK AND A MILKY WAY (as a child, loved Milky Ways and milk) and thinking…

TO BE SIX AGAIN:

I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult, in order to accept the responsibilities of a 6-year-old. The tax base is lower. I want to be six again.
I want to go to McDonald’s and think it’s the best place in the world to eat. I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make waves with rocks.
I want to think M&Ms are better than money because you can eat them. I want to play kickball during recess.
I long for the days when life was simple. When all you knew were your colors, the addition tables & simple nursery rhymes, but it didn’t bother you, because you didn’t know what you didn’t know and you didn’t care.
I want to go to school and have snack time, recess, gym and field trips.
I want to be happy because I don’t know what should make me upset. I want to think the world is fair and everyone in it is honest and good.
I want to believe that anything is possible.
Sometimes, while I was maturing, I learned too much. I learned of nuclear weapons, prejudice, starving and abused kids, lies, unhappy marriages, illness, pain and mortality. I want to be six again.
I want to think that everyone, including myself, will live forever because I don’t know the concept of death. I want to be oblivious to the complications of life and be overly excited by the little things again.
I want television to be something I watch for fun, not something used for escape from the things I should be doing. I want to live knowing the little things that I find exciting will always make me as happy as when I first learned them. I want to be six again.
I remember not seeing the world as a whole, but rather being aware of only the things that directly concerned me. I want to be naive enough to think that if I’m happy, so is everyone else.
I want to walk down the beach and think only of the sand beneath my feet and the possibility of finding that blue piece of sea glass I’m looking for.
I want to spend my afternoons climbing trees & playing stickball with my young Brooklyn, NY friends, letting the grownups worry about time, the dentist and how to find the money to fix the old car.
I want to wonder what I’ll do when I grow up and what I’ll be, who I’ll be and not worry about what I’ll do if this doesn’t work out. I want that time back.
I want to use it now as an escape, so that when my computer crashes, or I have a mountain of paperwork, depressed friends, or a fight or bittersweet memories of times gone by, or second thoughts about so many things……….
I can travel back and build a snowman, without thinking about anything except whether the snow sticks together and what I can possibly use for the snowman’s mouth.
I want to be six again……..

Very good. When we’re young everyone wants to grow up fast and be an adult and when we get there-faster than expected-we want to be young again. Nobody told me to savor my childhood but looking back those were probably the best days even though we might not have thought sonm then. But we can still go back in our minds and even in reality. If u have your health u can go to the beach etc and still do some of those
things. As grandma Rose would say’ It’s never too late . Will add an appropriate picture later when I find it. Thanks Stan

George Carlin was ahead of his time, a modern day philosopher
presented as a comedian,

We sure could use a George Carlin today- someone not afraid of pointing fingers at anyone who deserved it, regardless of party affiliation.

who 30 years ago was already tiring of the 
self-righteous environmentalists
and white, burgeoise liberals’
concerned about not enough bicycle paths and ‘making the world safe for their Volvos’.

Carlin would go crazy today seeing all the bicycle lanes crowding out the vehicle lanes and all the hypocritical Prius and Tesla owners plus ‘their mammoth Ford Explorers / gas-guzzling SUVs…

‘The planet is fine compared to the people.  We haven’t learned how to take care of ourselves and they’re trying to save the planet….The planet is fine. The people are fxxxxx’ …> https://youtu.be/7W33HRc1A6c

There Was A Real POPEYE

Who Knew POPEYE the Sailor Man really existed…..


His real name was Frank “Rocky” Fiegel.  He was born in 1868 in Poland and, as a child, immigrated to the United States with his parents, who settled down in a small town in Illinois. As a young man, Rocky went to sea.  After a 20 year career as a sailor in the Merchant Marines, Fiegel retired.  He was later hired by Wiebusch’s Tavern in the city of Chester, Illinois as a ‘Bouncer’ to maintain order in the rowdy bar.


Rocky quickly developed a reputation for always being involved in fighting (and usually winning).  As a result, he had a deformed eye (“Pop-eye”).  He also ‘always’ smoked his pipe, so he always spoke out of one side of his mouth.  In his spare time as a Bouncer, Rocky would entertain the customers by regaling them with exciting stories of adventures he claimed to have had over his career as a sailor crossing the ‘Seven Seas.’

The creator of Popeye, Elzie Crisler Segar, grew up in Chester and, as a young man, met Rocky at the tavern and would sit for hours listening to the old sailor’s amazing ‘sea’ stories.’  Years later, Segar became a cartoonist and developed a comic strip called ‘Thimble Theater.’ He honored Fiegel by asking if he could model his new comic strip character, ‘Popeye the Sailor Man,’ after him.  Naturally Fiegel was flattered and agreed.

Segar claimed that ‘Olive Oyl,’ along with other characters, was also loosely based on an actual person.  She was Dora Paskel, owner of a small grocery store in Chester.  She apparently actually looked much like the Olive Oyl character in his comics.  He claimed she even dressed much the same way.

Through the years, Segar kept in touch with Rocky and always helped him with money; giving him a small percentage of what he earned from his ‘Popeye’ illustrations.WHO didn’t love the cartoons???  We watched them religiously… so funny, so moral… each story had a good ending… wonder if kids these days even KNOW who Popeye is???  who knew he was a real man??  awesome!!!

I Miss America

?? America ??

I miss the America I grew up in.


Remember when riots were unthinkable.

When you left front doors unlocked.

When socialism was a dirty word.

When ghettos were neighborhoods.

When the Flag was a sacred symbol.

When criminals actually went to jail.

When you weren’t afraid to go out at night.

When taxes were only a necessary nuisance.

When a boy was a boy and dressed like one. When a girl was girl and dressed like one.

When the poor were too proud to take charity. When the clergy actually talked about religion.

When clerks and repairmen tried to please you. When college kids swallowed goldfish, not acid.

When songs had a tune and the words made sense. When people expected less, and valued what they had more.

When politicians proclaimed their patriotism and meant it. When everyone knew the difference between right and wrong.

When things weren’t perfect-but you didn’t expect them to be. When you weren’t made to feel guilty for enjoying dialect comedy.

When our government stood up for Americans anywhere in the world. When you knew that the law would be enforced and your safety protected.

When you considered yourself lucky to have a good job and proud, too.

When the law meant justice and you were in awe at the sight of a policeman.

When you weren’t too embarrassed to say that this is the best country.

When America was a land filled with brave, proud, hardworking people!

And, no, I’m not embarrassed to ‘date’ myself

‘Under-age’ Lubinsky Resurrects Rare 1965 ‘Murray The K’ Oldies Show

TJ Lubinsky, not an oldie himself, keeps the oldies alive… resurrecting forgotten artists and programs, latest being 5 shows, which debuts this Sat. Night on PBS > oldiescountry.com/

Loved hearing how this ‘under age’ lover of his father’s music went and found older, original rock and R&B singers who hadn’t sung in 40 years and brought them back for one last hurrah in his fabulous doowop, etc. PBS series’ as well as Ed Sullivan, and now Murray K revivals…talking
To George Noory on Coast to Coast, even young Lubinsky dismisses modern ‘music’ (‘no harmony,no melody,etc’) and remains lost in the 50s and 60s he never knew growing up.

Lubinsky tells the story of ‘unearthing’ (if you will) people like Betty Everett, down and out but who managed to get it together to reunite with Jerry Butler for one last performance 40 years later; she would pass two weeks later.
