You Say it's Your Birthday, Paul McCartney

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SIR PAUL!paul cake

 I actually made this cake on Paul's 64th birthday, just for fun.

 

Anyone who has read me for a bit on Open Salon knows of my love for The Beatles. 40-something years since their music hit the airwaves and I still listen to them regularly. Obsessed? You say that like it's a bad thing. I've written a few things about The Beatles on OS.

What IS your PROBLEM with Rich People?!

The question hung in the air as I had been called out by my young, educated, and apparently conservative co-worker. He sounded as if I may have insulted his peeps. Well this answers it--I knew there was a sound reason I wasn’t attracted to his quintessential good looks. Seemed I struck a nerve with my most recent diatribe—a habit I have with people, to which I’m becoming accustomed.

Yes, I committed an act of hyperbole, conflated facts with opinion and said aloud that the…

He began honing his guitar skills…

Under the Old Apple Tree ~ a Love Story (OS Archives 2012)

We awoke before dawn this day and whispered our good mornings, entwining our fingers with leg thrown over leg, our sleepy minds slowly giving thought to the day ahead. The window's view before us gave shape as the dawn began to rise, rows of dark spires, mostly young redwood peaks, swathed in grey velvet scarves, shifting but not yet thinning as the morning fog slowly rolled around and down our coastal canyon. Silently, we rose and dressed. 

Once outside, the damp fog swaddled…

Charlie Watts: "I'll never be a good drummer."

charliewatts550
I've been married to a drummer for over 30 years. Our son is also a drummer. Because of this decades long exposure to beats, strokes, rolls, flams, and paradiddles, my eyes and ears often seek out the drummer onstage.  Two concert experiences have found my eyes drifting to the back of the stage watching the man perched on the drum riser. Charlie Watts, drummer for the Rolling Stones, celebrated his 70th birthday on June 2nd. He has provided the…

May is Prader-Willi Awareness Month

A young boy called the police in the middle of the night, telling them his home had been invaded and his entire family killed.  The intruders were still in the house but he had hidden in the bathroom, so far avoiding detection. 

Imagine his mother's surprise when she stepped out…

Fighter Planes, Video Games, and my Brother's Father (OS Archives 2012)

The sounds of air battle were loud, we could hardly hear ourselves talk over the noise of the video game the boys were playing upstairs in their grandmother's bedroom. Don, my (twice widowed) mother's third husband, offered to go upstairs and check on them, to get them to tone it down.

"I'll go with you," offered Mom.

"Sure, Pat."

We all knew Mom was just worried about Don getting upstairs unscathed with his ever-present 50-foot long spaghetti noodle of oxygen…
