A few weeks ago my daughter Cami who goes to USF, invited me to visit her in Tampa to celebrate my birthday. Speaking of birthdays, hers is tomorrow, “Happy Birthday, Baby.” Anyway, she planned to cook me dinner and then take me out to celebrate with a few of her college friends. It sounded like a lot of fun, so I booked a room at a boutique hotel called the West Wing and jumped on a train. 
Now the thing of it is, whenever Cami visits me, she usually heads out with her friends about the same time I’m headed to bed. Armed with this knowledge, I hung around my hotel room, did a little writing, and grabbed myself a little nap. When I got up and was about to take a shower, I noticed that there was a note under the door. When I opened it up, It said that they were unable to clean my room because I had the “do not disturb” sign hung on the door handle. However, it went on to say, if I needed anything, please feel free to call the front desk for it.
I suddenly realized while getting ready to go to Cami’s for dinner, that I’d used up all the coffee which I’d probably really need the next morning so I called down to the front desk for some more. They said that they would send right up along with some sugar and milk.
About ten minutes later the phone rang, and a recorded voice said that a robot was outside my door with my order. A robot, I said to myself? When I slowly opened my door and peered out, there stood a slimmer version of R2-D2. It had an electronic screen in front that read “Hello,” and as I stood there staring at it, a lid on top opened up. Inside was all my stuff in a basket, and when I took it out, the electronic screen lit up with, “Is everything you need there?” When I clicked on, “I’m all set,” the lid closed, and the robot rolled off down the hallway. Wow!
Oh, how did the celebration go you ask? Cami took me to a funky bar where her friends met us which was very fun. (see picture on top) Not only was I drinking drinks that I’d never heard of before, but I was also doing shooters and shots. We finally closed the place at around 1:30 in the morning and as fun, as the party was, what I’ll never forget how cool little R2-D2 was.

Seeing as the Beatles were the first modern era long hairs, after working with them, I wonder how long it took George Martin to start growing his out?

Speaking of the early Beatles, they sounded much better in mono.

Do I have this right? We hate the Russians because they may have meddled in our elections, but we’re OK with all Muslims even though some of them are continuing to kill people all over the world?

My daughter Cami has a friend named Jackie Sanchez who is trying her hand at stand-up comedy, so we went to the Improv at City Place to see her perform. We’d arrived so early that we got seats right down in front (pictured on top) which I don’t mind saying, made me a little bit nervous. Fortunately, a shaken not stirred Vodka Martini with two olives somewhat calmed me down.
Thankfully the comics who were on before Jackie, (see picture below) left me alone, and she turned out to be very funny. The thing that cracked me up big time though, was when she said, “I can tell that you’re all sitting there waiting for me to confess that I’m a Lesbian. Well I’m not,” she went on to say, “As a matter of fact, I like older men, and the one I’m currently dating is so old that when he uses corny lines like, see ya later alligator, I feel obligated to respond with, after a while pedophile.”

  1. George, you’re right about the early Beatles; Brian Wilson preferred mono for The Beach Boys as well, but I expect he was overruled by his father and the production staff at Capitol Records.

  2. Hey George, Starting with Russia issue. WHOAH. MAY have intervened??? The real “fake news” along with social media, combined to spread massive volumes of misinformation that may have further tainted the entire election process, and further divided us as a people.

    As for politicians? Every single one of them are corrupt. Democrat and Republican. Add voter suppression, Gerrymandered districts and Corporate lobbying…along with the relentless attack on the validity of the mainstream media, we get one step closer to fascism every day. Depending on what happens in the election tomorrow, this could be a bloody week in America. I predict Trump will still go down, but it will be for Obstruction of Justice while in office, along with Money Laundering and Tax Evasion prior to his presidency.

    As for women and gays, I can’t explain it, but have noticed over the years that gay men treat women with a different level of respect, long before the sexual orientation issue even comes up.

    • Thanks for the comments, Paul. What I find amusing is that America probably interferes in most elections around the world but freaks out if someone should attempt some payback. I agree with you about the morals of most politicians, greed is their biggest motivator and because they can’t trust us to reelect them, they grab as much as they can right from the start. Who respects politicians?
      As far as for gays, if you look at the picture on top, I’m the only man at my birthday party who is not gay. My daughter hangs out with them and they protect her and the best part she says, “They don’t hit on her.”
