Joltin’ Joe –  The Yankee Clipper –  One of a kind

There will only be one Joe DiMaggio. His talent and tenacity are still talked about.  He is  best known for his 56-game hitting streak (May 15 – July 16, 1941)

An amazing record that still stands.

A boy from Martinez, California, Joe DiMaggio made it big. He came from a large Italian family and his father had dreams for his kids. Little did he know, three of his sons would be successful baseball players – and Joseph would be world famous.

The Golden Gate

When he retired, he ranked fifth in Career Home Runs (361) and sixth in Career Slugging percentage (.579).

He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1955, and was voted the sport’s Greatest Living Player in a poll taken during the baseball centennial year of 1969.

An American Icon

From the Joe Di Maggio Official Website
Joe DiMaggio was the quintessential American. More than a man or even a baseball player, he was also an authentic American hero, and cultural icon.

Guy on Match and his Alternative Facts

bad-photos12

On his online dating profile “Tall, Blond and Fantastic” wrote:

I’m a person that very strongly believes in academics. In fact, every time I say I had an uncle who was a great professor at M.I.T. for 35 years, who did a fantastic job in so many ways, he was an academic genius, and then they say, Look at Him                  (meaning ME) an intellectual!  Trust me, I’m, like, a successful smart person.”

He included a photo of some of his friends…

(Anyone can see the date at the bottom)

He said he has thousands of friends – more than anybody. Ever.

 Ms HeartFire said there was something too familiar about his blustey, braggadocio comments and she forwarded his Match.com profile. It was rife with classic, all too well known, Alternate Facts.

Hey! Either you are married or single.

All you need is Clues

A few messages later – he divulged he had a Tower in New York City and an estate in Florida. Yeah, yeah Yeah – all of his ex- wives were foreigners – he was fabulous- women loved him – he loved women. He spent a lot of time tweeting messages to Ms XYZ…she was intrigued.

Lots of talk about  limos, jets,  fantastic money, and a new getting a new house – a white house…

READ between the Lines. It only took 10 more tweets from him before she discovered who she was talking to…

Buh bye!

Whoops! Down for the count!

Hot Tip: Your Desk Chair on wheels can double as a wheel chair.

Great Idea: When someone asks you to help them carry a titanic suitcase down a narrow staircase in their ancient Victorian manse in San Francisco- pull a Nancy Reagan and “Just Say No.”

Hannah Helper – hovering at 50- thinking she was still 29- said “Heck, yeah!” when asked to assist wth the gargantuan suitcase. Little did she know, it was filled with – “seemed like bricks,” and she jerked the bag set -by -step backwards on the stairs.

And so the Tumble began…

Ring-a-round the rosie,
A pocket full of posies,
Ashes! Ashes!                     all fall down

Great idea #2: Live Upstairs and Pack Downstairs: pack your suitcase on the ground level and bring your clothing, shoes (and bricks) down to the suitcase.
