I am the worst judge of the best of posts; will have part two on Monday; any suggestions are welcome. I’m also technically challenged and several links just refused to be team players. Am including it in personal essays because all except California noir dreaming, are. Sorry if there are any repeats.
This begins in 2004; when nobody including me read Courting.
True-crimes-and-punishment is one of my early posts and very different than any thing else!
Back in another less innocent life begins the Zachary stories though the others come much later.
City life in the last century is really about how Duane Reade drug stores and Korean grocery stores made life in 1980’s New York much much easier. I will always love Duane Reade for that but I don’t usually go there anymore!
A Seasonal Moment is short for me; and I had forgotten about the incident until I was going through the archives. Made me smile!
This is a rant about the bank I truly hate, and am finally going to leave.
Fairway and me and the world is about a grocery store I live two blocks from. Seem to live two blocks from everything, including a Duane Reade. Fairway’s an experience you don’t want to repeat but do constantly.
When you’re brought up on The New Yorker I never have normal crushes; have had a decades long one on Calvin Trillin
James Spader William Shatner uh Denny Crane as I said I never have normal crushes. No it’s not Shatner
California Noir Dreaming is one of my personal favorites.
Rally Days shows what a novice I was to the world of political blogging. I wil never apologize for loving my country, and opposing needless wars
Who am I? is a question many have asked
Who’s your daddy? Being adopted is something I find totally normal
Sams Summer is one of my favorites as I still remember the night the gentleman came calling.
Lucia and I… is the third version of this story. Have the prior ones linked to this.
The Oldest Child on The LIRR, April 23, 2004. The link won’t take. Protesting all the rides to Long Island because ‘it’s so much easier for you.” Then what? I can take in food with the best of them
When I was a wild thing, May 27, 2005
Mold Farm, June 28, 2005–my brain on rain doesn’t let links take
That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it
