What You Won't Find Here!

A good old fashioned Rockaway Beach knish.

What you won't find here

Sieu Thi Story

Am I dating myself here?

You betcha.

A glorious memory of a reality savored BY ME in the late 60's.

The Girl With No Name

For those interested, I don't know who she is, except that she had a pretty face, raven hair and exotic eyes.

The Girl With No Name

She was sitting in a booth at the county fair with no patrons and truly I don't know what she was selling.

But, I thought she looked nice and you would too, after looking at pigs, cows and chickens all day.

The Middle Child

She is the second of 3.

Her oldest sister, Rania, just turned 3 and we have been celebrating her birthday for the past 3 days and will continue I daresay the next 23 hours.

Three weeks ago, a third sister, Safia was born.

So ... I am afraid my poor 15 month old grandchild is temporarily suffering the middle child syndrome.

To compensate for her status, I am posting this photo to memorialize her.

She's a pip, full of energy, with 4 new teeth this week and, suffering the terrible 2's after just turning ONE.

She's a ham and loves her photo taken. I adore her and her plump cheeks to death.

World!

Meet Nisha.

Strange Bedfellows

Now, really and truly,

I don't know if they're an item or not.

But,

Strange Bedfellows

Strange Bedfellows

I think they are negotiators, communicators and possessors of emotional stability,

They are different from our world leaders or just plain folks in general.

What more can I say about our planet’s condition?

Sigh ….

It's a zoo out there.

Name That City!

Hey there. Let's play a game.

Can you identify the city and its buildings?

Name That City!

Name That City!

Have fun!

And,

Place notes.

A Profile of Courage

At first she reminded me of the Dr. Seuss character in "The Cat with the Hat".

But then I had a flash of the past.

Back in the day, I wore big, big glasses, comfy loose tops, torn jeans, short skirts etc before those styles became voguish in different eras.

And ... I didn't care what people thought.

I prided myself on non- conformity,

So, it was with a sigh and a smile, I took this photo.

Have you ever wondered what he did in the confessional booth?

Now you know!

And, REMEMBER, you saw it here first.
