Gobbledoked About


Chicago Cubs fan, born and raised 3rd Generation (my grandfather was In the Stands when the Cubs won the World Series in 1907 and 1908). Raised in Park Ridge (near Chicago) for 33-years; was then sent by an employer, out here to SF/NAPA where met the prettiest Redhead on EARTH... so I stayed here-!

Now for the rest of the basics of Life ....

"Love him, and let him Love you. Do you think anything else under Heaven really matters?" (James Baldwin, "Giovanni's Room" 1956)

"It's amazing what love can change.; It's amazing what Courage love can breed in other people." (Patrick Swayze, 2009)

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. - - It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. - - Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. - - It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres" .... (from St. Paul's 1st letter to the already floundering and increasingly infighting and bickering new Church at Corinth, Greece, c.60-AD … Corinthians, 13:4-8)

"If you pursue evil with pleasure, the pleasure passes away and the evil remains; If you pursue good with labor, the labor passes away but the good remains." -- Roman Senator Marcus Cicero, c.59-BC

Whomever I have loved, be they gentleman or lady, nonetheless, as always, "Music is my Mistress"

TIMING is EVERYTHING - - - - yesterday I received a letter that My POWER will be turned Off. Today I received a power and gas bill. :--0

Now the turn off is ONLY to replace a neighborhood transformer next week. But the Timing is PERFECT
and so it goes.

We start this celebration off with passionate kissing..... said the spider to the fly.
