  1. Some of the Good Times

    Sunday, May 21, 2023


    The prose reading was fantastico!  A packed room.  Really good readings by the four Prosettas.  The wine and snacks consumed.  Lots of hugs and applause.  One of my surprise guests was Lisa Harmon, a comic.  Sometimes, my poetry pals attend a comedy show I’m in.  But it is rare that a comedy friend attends a poetry or prose reading that I’m in.  Linda San Lucas and Jerry Shack did once, and now Lisa Harmon.  I was very pleasantly surprised.  I enjoy when my worlds come together.

    Every seat was filled.  That felt so good.

    I don’t experience the different parts of my life meeting like George Costanza’s “worlds are colliding!”

    One of my long-time friends, Judy, lives in Staten Island, and I live in the Bronx.  She drives, but I don’t.  Typically when getting together, we’d meet in Manhattan.  However, she has driven to the Bronx MANY times. We used to attend a writing group in the Bronx many years ago.  She’s been to almost all of my comedy shows on City Island in the Bronx.  In the last week and a half, she was in the Bronx twice for different walking tours.  Then we got together afterwards.  Twice in a short period of time felt like such a treat.  I wish that were more often the case.


    My feline friend Mustache, who lives and works at the nearby discount store, continues to greet me with much affection and loud meows.  We have our affection sessions, which, for me, is therapeutic.  Sometimes, those moments are the highlight of my day.

    I just heard thunderous noise.  Not sure if it’s the weather or my upstairs pain-in-the-azz neighbor. 


    Please put June 2nd at 7:45pm on your calendar for comedy on City Island in the Bronx at The Artist, 249 City Island Avenue.  It’s going to be a really good show at only $15 cover, no minimum.  A hat gets passed around for contributions for the hilarious comics.  


    You are welcome to BYOB.  Laughter guaranteed.  😁 😂 😃 😄 😅 😆 😊

    So much love to CGG-M  ❤ 💕 ❤

      Thanks for the shout out! I am glad Mustache is back! Didn't Mustache get catnapped a while back?

    2. No she didn't get catnapped, thank Goodness. She hasn't been gone. We have regular affection sessions. There have been times I didn't see her for a few days but she wasn't missing.
