  1. Mark Your June Calendar!

    Sunday, May 19, 2024






    I hope very much that you will desire to laugh with us on June 14th for my Almost Summer Comedy Show at The Artist (all male line-up to honor Father’s Day).




    249 City Island Avenue, City Island, The Bronx

    8pm (7:45 recommended)

        Lately I’ve had a good time at poetry readings as a featured reader.  And I love attending David Elsasser’s weekly workshop on Zoom that I used to attend in person.  That group became even more meaningful to me during Covid – it was human contact!  Certain people made it possible for me to attend with camera and mic features.  Sometimes my tech stuff didn’t work for me.  David was always willing to accommodate me in whatever ways he could.  Sometimes I joined by phone or only communicated in the chat box.  But when someone wants you there, they make it happen.  In many ways I feel so blessed. 


            My closest buddy’s mom is almost 102 years old.  We spent Mother’s Day together -- my buddy, his mom, her aide, and me.  I have daily heartbreak over my own Mother’s Day situation, but still have hope.


            Come to my comedy show and let’s have a good time in spite of all kinds of stuff.


             You can pay in advance (link in next blog) or pay when you are there.  You may BYOB.  Cover charge $15 and no minimum!  Menu of light fare is available for separate purchase as is delicious desserts from


            A hat gets passed around for contributions, so I may pay the comics.

            I know you will enjoy the show, so don’t miss it.



    A heartful of love to CGG-M  ❤ 💕 ❤

    For those familiar with my feline friend, Mustache, she and I are still going strong.  She and I had our affection session today and yesterday.  I admit that sometimes my main motivation to go into the store where she lives is to see her.  So when I don’t have anything I need to buy there or no money to buy it, I go in to check my pathetic checking account balance on the ATM.  She finds me and begins our love session while being very verbal about it.  She continues to be a loving part of my life, and me, hers.



    So much love to CGG-M ❤❤❤
