The Fat Lady got High

In fact, she overdosed and is in a vegetative state. Please, for the good of everyone, please make no effort to revive her. She has been hanging around waiting for that super brownie that would take her to the high that could finally put the 1960’s behind us, just as Ken Kesey promised that her ultimate altered state was all that was needed to end that dreadful experience. Every disappointment of that decade of protest, uncompromising angry protest, dragged the election of 2016 down the drain that the reluctant fat lady had blocked like a hippie hair ball.

Visits to New York During the Depression

When I was a little girl living in the New York suburbs, my favorite treat was going with my father into the City. This was during the thirties. It was exciting as I held tight to my father’s hand, taking in all the sights, smells, and sounds of bustling New York. We would visit his office at Snyder and Black, an advertising company where I was given a large block of white paper for future drawings. Later we would go to Brentano’s or Scribner where I could choose a book...

Politics I don’t remember election time as being discussed when I was young. Roosevelt’s name came up a lot - CCC [Civilian Conservation Corps], etc. The only funny time I recall when my mother said she was voting for Alf Landon because he was from Kansas (both of my parents’ home state). My father made remarks about him but mom stuck to her original thoughts. After I was married, we both voted Republican and there as very little discussion....


The Airship

The Hindenburg The airship is lighter than an aircraft with an engine that moves through the air. The main body of a typical airship is a huge cigar shaped balloon filled with a lighter than air gas. This air, normally hydrogen, raises the craft and keeps it afloat. Airships were introduced in the 1800s as the first flying machine capable of prolonged flight and of being steered. A great amount of innovation in this area took place in Europe, especially in Italy and...



From the age of 7 until I was 16 and had a driver’s license, my transportation was relegated to a bicycle. At 12, I was given an “English” bike, which was larger and lighter than my balloon-tired one, and had gears! Now progressing up hills or against the wind was a much easier chore. After Memorial Day until Labor Day we spent close to the south shore of Long Island at a place called Remsenburg, near Westhampton. The ride to the ocean was about 6 miles. Our family and...


Summer Camp

At the age of 9 I was sent to a boy’s camp in Raymond, Maine. It was an exciting experience. As a younger brother I wore a lot of hand-me-downs from my 2 year older brother. This camp required a complete Camp Hawthorn wardrobe. That in itself was a great joy. The camp was in an idyllic spot on Panther Pond; very near Lake Sebago. Although not used to swimming in fresh water. I excelled in all the water activities and became eligible to go on canoe trips - especially some...
