Thou shalt not Flirt?

6938096235_c3cdbd552a_o-2

The Annual He-She Man Hating Club – Non Flirting Branch – were quite pleased with themselves.

The six card-carrying members had attracted four young women who might, perhaps join.  Club members served tea and finger sandwiches while they espoused their views on men, mating, dating and flirting.

The singular most important rule pertained to Not Flirting in Public. The Club members proudly performed their Club song:

 Rooty toot toot, Rooty toot toot! We are the girls from the Institute!

We don’t flirt – we don’t kiss- we don’t hug – we do things like no one does.

Rooty toot toot, Rooty toot toot! We are the girls from the Institute!

We hold hands, walk by your side and smile all the a while.

Behind closed doors, we do what we want, with whom,

and take the secrets to the  tomb. Rah!

Membership had been down – the members were dying to attract new women. Many had called – out of curiosity-  and none had joined.

In time, the Non-Flirting Club evaporated and no one spoke of it again.

The only lingering evidence was the picture.

San Francisco Hero: Joe DiMaggio

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.

Tenacious

Can you say Merry Christmas? Yes, you can!

May all your Christmas wishes come true!

Have more fun this Holiday Season and Reach out and touch Someone-

Hey, kids! Try this at home  (and away from home) 

Say ‘Merry Christmas’ to everyone.

I say, “Bah, humbug!” to the bland, vanilla, PC “Happy Holiday” malarkey.

Take it up a notch, say “Merry Christmas” to the people on the bus, in line at Dunkin Donuts/Starbucks, the doorman, the waitress, barista, the Lyft driver, the salesclerk, the bus driver, the people in the elevator and everyone! What goes around…

photo_8735_20081228

  Q. Your New Year’s Resolution?

A. Watch Less TV 

Q. How would you accomplish that?

A. Call Comcast and request ‘Cancel Showtime ASAP, Please, effective immediately.”

Oh, Wait! The Comcast Phone Lines are not working.

You can’t call Xfinity or Comcast or 1 800 934 6489.

And…You can’t really “Chat with an Agent” – that option is the Eighth Ring of Hell. Avoid Razel ( a Robot) he  can only mime the last sentence you wrote.

Is North Korea in on this?

To Be Resolved

Bingo! My very favorite Christmas Carol

holiday resort in thailand

Mele Kalikimaka!

Ho, ho ho! Just like you, I like “Jingle Bells” “Silent Night,” “Frosty,” “Rudolph,” sung by Burl Ives,  Elvis’ “Blue Christmas,” and “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” but, I love “Mele Kalikimaka!”

  It is quite possibly the happiest-quirkiest-most unsung hero of the Christmas calvacade of songs.

Our family has six grass skirts stashed away – waiting for any opportunity to sing our very favorite Christmas carol.  Yeah, yeah, yeah, Bing Crosby got a bad rap-  for all those bad raps –  but, when the King of Croons stops to sing –  we slip into our neon grass skirts- get ready for Hula Hands- and belt out  the island greeting that we send to you…

 

 Aloha and Mahalo 

Mele Kalikimaka is the word to say
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas day
That’s the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way
To say Merry Christmas to you

Mele Kalikimaka is the word to say
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas day
That’s the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way
To say Merry Christmas to you

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way
To say Merry Christmas to you

Mele Kalikimaka is the word to say
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas day
That’s the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way
To say Merry Christmas
A very Merry Christmas
A very, very, Merry,Merry Christmas to you
