to get all psyched for this upcoming season of baseball, BUT I CAN’T. Because… I’m a Yankees fan. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
I guess the only thing I can do is beer and boo and be happy that I am still able to go see games. [deep breath] “Every day I’m above ground is a good day.”
Good Morning! It’s that time of the day, again! ☕️☕️☕️ And it feels *so* good! I have a couple of more days here in Nu Joizy and then, it’s back to Sun City. (Yay!!!) my sister is coming tomorrow to hang with mom for a bit because…as you all who KNOW me, know… It’s tough for me, being here in my hometown. I try to be all like Springsteen kinda nostalgic about it. I know how The Boss loves HIS hometown of Freehold. Oh! Freehold is *also* the hometown of what NBA champion??? Eastern Conference??? Cabs??? Knicks??? Nuggets??? Uh… JR Smith, LMAO!!! DUH!!! LOL!!!
Anyway, I walk through Uptown Browns Mills and snap off pics at our old houses, some of them grand, some of them modest and I think to myself: “There’s no better place in South Jersey to come from!” But…that was a looooooooooooooong time ago and I do believe it is true, that whole “You can never go back” thing. I moved away and moved BACK to California, TWICE. And I lived in California for *almost* as long as I lived here in New Jersey. But, Long Beach and Palm Springs??? My years there were never like my ten years in The Valley or my very first (studio) apartment in Hollywood. It just wasn’t the same. And I love Palm Springs. Enough to buy a fixer-upper condo there. After all. Eventually, I’ll retire from everything. And when I do, I can think of very few places…pace and weather wise…that I’d like to be. Palm Springs and Arizona. That’s IF I can survive this god damn Trump “presidency.” Give me the strength.
Okay: How many of you Walking Dead fans have downloaded the Collapsible Hearts Club’s instant classic “Easy Street?” LOL!!! I’ve been bumpin’ that tune ALL. week. long. LMAO!!! YES!!! Keeping on topic, I did NOT make it to the comic book store this week. Yea. Grown up shit trumps second childhood shit, every time. I’ll hit Midtown Comics on the way out of town for sure, though.
Hey!!! I’m going to make a few phone calls. Thanks for tuning in, as always. If you’re in Florida, I will be in Tampa for Yankees Spring Training, next month! YAY!!! Haven’t done Spring Training since before my dad passed, so, I’m STOKED!!! About the experience!!! NOT The Yankees chances, LOL!!! Me heading a roster stacked full of crack fiends and toddlers have a better chance of reaching the World Series than my Yanks! Falcons lost. Knicks suck. Yankees are in for a long, hard, painful season.
