    1. thanks; right now it's grapefruit league spring training ball in clearwater FLA. we will see what happens when the REAL season begins!

  2. I like your answers and - yes - I will respond....but I'll probably respond later rather than sooner. I'm slow.

    As for "Rhapsody in Blue" - - I made a recording of Gershwin's original piano solo version, which I performed when I lived in California. It's about 15 minutes long. Unfortunately my only copy is on a cassette. I plan on transferring it to cd.

    1. ooooooooooooooh, THAT I would love to hear! I thought you would dig my classical pieces!

  3. I am humbled :-)


    1. you make the best damn cosmos I have ever had; NO ONE can touch your genius at making this drink!

  4. "niagara falls (slowly I turn, step by step, inch by inch...)"

    Cue spit-take!

  5. I didn't put it on my list, but I also dread the election, this entire campaign season and the next one that will begin the day after the election in November. The system is broken, people! Broken! (I also dread emotional outbursts.)

    1. the tea things and religious freaks and the angry white males need to be rounded up and sent to siberia...permanently!

  6. I'm on my lunch break, but I'll respond later tonight.

  7. Your post title gave me quite a start!

  8. Four names I go by: Ravager, R.J., Slade, and Bitch.

    Four things I hate: poverty, war, xenophobia, homophobia (are you listening, donald the rump?)

    Four things I am dreading: paying my taxes, the next election, my next crown (well, my wallet is) and my father's failing health.

    Four items on my bucket list: I don't have a bucket list.

    Four people I think will respond: Mistress Maddie better respond! LOL

    1. the show with ann miller could have been "sugar babies" with mickey rooney. interesting list, luv!

  9. Hairy bear porn? Is that porn with unshaven gay men? Can you see everything you need to see with all the hairiness?

  10. Coming late to this one, must register my approval of your including the Gershwin concerto, much overlooked in favour of his Rhapsody, which itself is so good, but everyone knows that anyway.

    The 'Gold and Silver Waltz' is also my favourite waltz (if one can have such a thing). The melody of its first strain in particular is heart-touchingly beautiful.

    Could say a lot more but I'll confine myself to saying that I too utterly LOATHE the film of 'Grease'. Pity that several of the songs are good, but are better when they are played/sung as separate items taken out of their context. As for the film itself - and its 'message' that for a girl to get a man she's just got to act in the way that HE wants - YUK!

    1. never late, raybeard. if I didn't play along, spo would wonder about me. and you know me - upfront and honest.

  11. late to respond, but delighted to do so; thanks for playing along!
