Pat Sky

Pat Sky has died, and I'll miss him even though it's been over fifty years since I last saw him.

Off Ramps

It's been a long while now since I got where I wasn't going. But it happened all the time when I was younger.

Playing With Fire

One of the Baltimore friends had spent, or misspent, a youth working in carnivals and small circus'. As a sideshow side job, he'd dabbled in ( his words not mine) swallowing sharp objects and flame swallowing.

Caution

If you were me in the '60s and early '70s, you always walked with one shoulder higher than the other.

Articulate

We had been better off before the Teahead of the August Moon decided to improve himself.

Veritas

My best friend Bill had a favorite phrase that would pop up anytime he'd have to think his way out of some idiot situation he'd into which he'd fallen. He'd have to "cogitate my veritabilities."
