GENERATION . . . . GAP!

Of course there's a generation gap.  
Why wouldn't there be?! 
Especially in 2018 when technology has advanced so fast 
in the past 30 years and has gone why beyond our small intellects to grasp.

I was raised in a much different world than the kids in the digital age today.  I am classified as an "OF" -- an Old Fart. I am proud of that title. I earned it. 

Having said that, my experiences and journey are obvious much different than of those say, 40 and younger.  

For example, I thoroughly enjoyed these 3 recent films. I asked several twenty-somethings here in Los Angeles, and all of them said they did not like any of the movies!  After I gasped and restrained my surprise, a bit, I asked them.  

The main theme of all the movies is about struggle.  They did not have to go through the challenges of freedom that I had to put up with in my youth, including the AIDS crisis.  They couldn't relate. 

Irritated with them?  Mad at them?  No, though a bit disappointed, as I would like for them to revel in the joy that watching these films brought me.  

More though, I am very happy that people of my generation have paved an easier road for today's generation.

ASSHOLE

There's no other word to 
describe POTUS --
the "man" 
(and I use that word in the lowest sense of its meaning)
in the White House

He's a liar, narcissist, bully, uncultured, no class,
hypocrite, greedy, unintelligent, thief, ignorant, 
unconscientious, unempathetic, uncourageous,
racist, phony, fascist, bigot, sexual harasser, 
insensitive . . .  

. . . everything I was raised against!

The man is despicable and pathetic.

Here's hoping he goes down like Nixon,
with shame and disgrace

TERMINALLY LUCY



Over sixty years since its inception,
it is shown the world over, reigning
 as the best sitcom ever!










With a genius of an ensemble cast and 
wondrous scripts with thick plots, 
twists and turns, and continual frivolity 
and laughter, the sitcom has proven time
and time again its sustaining strength.




No matter how many times I have watched
a particular episode, it holds my attention completely,
providing total escapism, belly laughs, and 
satisfies my appetite for sheer entertainment. 






Like Desi Arnaz once said:
"I Love Lucy was never just a title."
I love Lucy, Ricky, Fred, and Ethel -- 
and even little Ricky and Mrs. Trumbull.

Thank you for years of joy.








No show yesterday or today compares
with this Top Rate series






Thank you Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, 
Vivian Vance, and William Frawley
