Tossed Salad Friday

~~ A real estate agent told me yesterday, “One agent in my office sold so many freaking houses in January that she probably skewed the national average all by herself!” How did the agent I was speaking with do in that time period? “Ha!” she chuckled. “If you’re going to put it in your blog, just say I had a sucky month.”

 

~~I just said goodbye to Gary Carter, who died way before anyone ever should. Now it’s Davy Jones who has passed away so prematurely.  I adored him when I was a tweener, and grinned each time I saw him on a recent “oldies” performance on PBS.

 

When the Monkees’ show first started on TV, I had the luxury of watching it all by myself. There was no TV in any of the kids’ rooms in our house then, so watching a program in the living room meant that either we all agreed, or my mother decided the evening’s entertainment. But for some reason, when the show first aired, I was all by my lonesome. I became entranced by all four Monkees, but developed a crush on Davy.  There was something about him that was so charming and so appealing. He reminded me a bit of my first love, Paul McCartney, but was goofier and, best of all, he was on TV every single week!

 

Permit me a bit of Davy today:


 

~~Though Gary Carter & Davy Jones featured prominently in my life about 20 years apart, I seem to have molded and melded them together into my zeitgeist. Their losses caused me to reach for another of the favorites of my youth. Her gorgeous voice and Bob Dylan’s words embody how both Gary & Davy will remain in my heart and in my mind:


 

Have a great weekend! If you get a chance, please tell a GOP’er to stop thinking about women’s wombs and start solving our economic woes. Spring training has begun, so I get to start rooting for another team to break my heart.

LET’S GO RANGERS!

GO, NY KNICKS, GO!

LET’S GO METS!
