A Horny Lady

I am guessing that it was the title that got your attention.  But if you were expecting a hot and tantalizing story about an amorous lady I once knew – sorry to disappoint. I have been swamped these past few weeks, and yesterday, my back hurt so much, I decided to remain in my pajamas… Continue reading A Horny Lady

A Very Happy Thanksgiving Day

Before I begin my Thanksgiving Day story, I want to announce a very special friend’s 81st birthday today. It’s ironic that my buddy Norm Colon (the southern Norm), gets to celebrate three special occasions today – because he lives in the USA and they celebrate Columbus Day.  Their Thanksgiving Day isn’t until next month. So,… Continue reading A Very Happy Thanksgiving Day

Everyone Needs A Hero

Suzette and Danny at Vancouver Web Fest 2016

Hey, there’s a poker game I’ve been playing – where a pair always beats a royal flush. If you’ve ever played poker, you’re probably scratching your head and wondering how I could ever make such a false claim? It goes back to 2009 when I entered the hospital during the last week of my radiation… Continue reading Everyone Needs A Hero

My Holly Golightly and Audrey Hepburn

Part 1 of 3  (Originally published April 2012) Last night, during a night of deep and peaceful sleep, I suddenly awoke to the most bizarre sight.  I sat upright on my bed and began hugging my pillow in terror. But first, let me give you a little background. Holly Golightly is a Coton de Tulear.  I… Continue reading My Holly Golightly and Audrey Hepburn

A Walk on the South Trail

Yesterday, I took a walk along Campbell Valley Regional Park’s south trail. I wanted to clear my mind of debris, caused by years of reckless abandon. I was feeling happy because I would be on a film set on Friday morning.  It’s a commercial and my first acting gig of the year. It is also my… Continue reading A Walk on the South Trail

The Lemons-to-Lemonade Sagas

Danny (Sept 1967)

The first of the lemons-to-lemonade sagas is about comedian Dave Chappelle. He used to have a popular television show, but he quit it in 2006 and wandered in the standup wilderness for about fourteen years. Some of his critics rejoiced at his absence from the world of television comedy but not his fans. We patiently… Continue reading The Lemons-to-Lemonade Sagas

Another Christmas Miracle

Tony 'n Tina's Wedding Show 2009

Ever know or meet someone, who then becomes famous?  I have.  But that isn’t what my Christmas Miracle story is about. I once auditioned for a short film produced and directed by Drew Scott, a local actor/real estate salesman/producer. It was before I had cancer and was quite a bit heavier than I am now.  But… Continue reading Another Christmas Miracle

A Happy Ending

I was getting claustrophobic from being confined to my home for the past two weeks, so the drive to North Vancouver last Friday was a welcomed change. During my hibernation, I wrote about some of the pain and sadness in the following stories:  (click on each to view) Dear Connie has Passed Away story  … Continue reading A Happy Ending

A May Day Call

Today, I did what I swore I’d never, ever do. I was sitting in the waiting room of the cancer center in Vancouver, waiting for a good friend, who was having her radiation treatment and I was cursing to myself at this terrible disease.  I have known too many people who have suffered from this… Continue reading A May Day Call

A Wet Kiss

My birthday lunch (2018)

This morning, I awoke to a tongue licking my face and it made me smile. If you’ve never experienced a wet, wake-up kiss before – I recommend that you get a dog. Cats are okay but they’re ‘wired’ differently than dogs, and they would rather ignore you. And today, Holly let me sleep until 5:00… Continue reading A Wet Kiss
