To My Valentine….

Here’s me and my valentine, back in, well, not quite “the day” but a day—and from the looks of it, a happy one.

He (B) has known me since I was 18.  I turned 25 during the first months we lived together.  He deserves a Purple Heart, the Medal of Freedom, Medal of Honor, the Legion d’ honneur,  and certainly something from the American Psychiatric Association:  Patience and Understanding Above and Beyond the Call of Duty.

I asked him just before we moved in together, in 1976, “Are you sure?”  He said, “Absolutely.”   Since then, the only wise decision I’ve ever made is never to ask him that again. 

Happy Valentine’s Day, honey.denbruscan002wlat

      Thank you Mimi.  We were both just starting to go gray at the time.  “Sort of makes interesting highlights” I said then, of my own silver strands.  I said that less as the years went on.

    Hi,  My guy made us a homemade cake for V Day. I ate an Elizabeth Taylor-sized portion of it…and like ET, did not regret a single bite!
    Here’s a Happy Belated Valentine’s Day present. First is my latest blog essay on Bette and Joan’s dueling ’62 memoirs, both are fascinating for totally different reasons! Second, just posted on YouTube is Bette’s first post-mastectomy, stroke, and broken hip interview with David Hartman in ’85. I was totally surprised at how well she seems in this chat, nearly her feisty old self! Check both out : ) And Cheers to Mr. Wow and friends! Rick

    Hope everyone is lining up their favorite cocktails and appetizers to watch the red carpet arrivals and Oscars – chilly here in LaLaLand but will be fun, Fun, FUN!!!

    Checked in to see if Mr. Wow was doing the red carpet. I never watch. But will be watching tonight. Tonight is not a night to miss. I bet that person in the White House is going to be on Twitter early tomorrow morning.  And Happy Valentines Day to all. Especially to D and B.

    I won’t be watching, but I’ll be checking : )
    The moment I am most curious for is Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway handing out Best Picture!
    This film never won ANY Oscars, but it is oddly fascinating. My latest blog post, on Hitchcock’s ‘Marnie!’ Cheers and champagne for everyone : )

    Are we not doing the Oscars? Mr Wow are you okay?

    Maybe Mr. Wow was invited by President Trump to the Ball is he giving tonight in D.C.

    this is a no show party – so I will stop blogging to myself

    I’m in shock over the ending. How embarrassing to have handed out Oscars to losers and then have to take them away and give them to the winners. Whoever stuffed the envelopes obviously is lookin for another job. The rest of the show, and I was reminded it was a show, wasn’t as boring as I remembered and not as political as I expected.  I was hoping Meryl Streep would win so she could continue going off on Karl Lagerfeld and I bet she was hoping she would win as well for the same reason.  And saying that there are no doubt going to wonder if the mixup at the end was part of the show.  Can’t wait for Mr. Wow’s take…

    Hi Mr. W and Wow Fans : )
    Here’s a little tribute I wrote about my Aunt Janet, who passed away after suffering from Parkinson’s for over 20 years. It’s a slightly fictionalized essay about her teenage dream of becoming a country singing star, like her idol, Patsy Cline. Cheers, Rick

      Aw thanks, Lulu!
      I do miss Mr. W’s kibitzing about flicks on blogs, though I detected his fine hand in discussing Joan Crawford and Bette Davis into today’s Liz Smith column : )
      In between working with school kids, renting my house, and trying to keep up with life, I am trying to write on a regular basis… I appreciate the comments!
      Cheers, Rick
