@ossobuco,
Hello to FreeDuck and the kiddos!

ehBeth, the attitude in that photo is fantabulous.

@ehBeth,
Oh well then, 12 hours dancing over three days is fairly reasonable. I thought you meant a single 12-hour slog. That'd make anyone ready to drop in a bowl. Like a big dollop of Jello, quivering all over.

Good luck with your studies.

BTW, I was in Portugal once and happened to catch a performance by Lilah. She was very well known in her day, having performed in a James Bond film ... Goldfinger, I think. It was one of the Sean Connery Bond films, at any rate. She sported more jangling bits than a Budweiser Clydesdale.

A few years later, I caught her act in Palma (Mallorca) and she was still firing on all cylinders. Right steamy stuff, she was.

I didn't see this before breakfast, will alert her somewhere on her path. But I know she knows you know she knows you get her.

I plain old love free duck, even though I just met her for a short time. Some kind of combo of many reads and real life.

@ehBeth,
Whoa, ehBethie. I find I made two errors. Her name was spelled Leila and the film wasn't Goldfinger, but From Russia With Love. I found a clip ...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrsRapiOMn0&list=PL26DED4DAD9743C37
... but I wish I hadn't watched it. Connery looks like he could be my grandkid. Sheesh!

Also found her bio. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0347493/bio
Only took her 3 months training as a belly flopper to land a film contract. That oughta keep your nose to the grindstone, what?

Reading the bio, I found it's no wonder I bumped into her in Mallorca. Or rather she bumped into my table. Guess she caught a glimpse of my mug and lost control of her gyrations. Tipped my cubalibre into my lap. That's where the steam came from that I mentioned before.

@Debacle,
ahem

Three months as a dancer, not three months training.


(I love IMDB - performers prepare their own bios)

@ehBeth,
Well, I didn't know that about writing one's own bio. I should throw my hat in there.

I've got a 16-page bio I submitted several years ago along with my application to join the local ginseng hunters association. I think they gave too much credence to my bio because they rejected my ap on the grounds I would likely be a fire hazard in the woods. But I've still got the carbons of the bio in a trunk in my garage. I might edit it a bit and try that IBMAD outfit. Thanks for the heads up.

@roger,
longdog's in town about once a year. Always good stories about the latest adventures of Joan Dark. longdog's one of the reasons I still miss Abuzz - not that those days are coming back or should come back.

@ehBeth,
I met both of them, along with Roberta, one glorious evening at The Isle of Capri, in a booth on the sidewalk, on third avenue.

I wearied of the crones at some point, not so much re them, I liked them, as the whole schmeggegy with a couple of others.

I hold them dear but somewhat apart, and I presume they are not all pro me either.

On my trip to NYC after fifty years, long dog dogged me to come see her house in Pennsylvania, to the extent that I gave up on trying to meet Joe Nation or Frank Apisa. Which is not her fault, but mine; I felt hassled and did neither. I should have been more plain, though I thought I was.

There won't be a next time, but I still like those two.

@ehBeth,
Inconsiderate slap in the mug: "I still miss Abuzz - not that those days are coming back or should come back."

Well, sez you! It warn't you wot was locked out of Abuzz when all those inside the Silver Dollar were having a rip-roarin' time shootin' up the place, flinging bottles and chairs, and spittin' on the face on the barroom floor (the only likeness of Jason Cry to exist outside of the FBI Building.) Oh yeah, barred from my own saloon while you and Andy were in there carrying on under the tablecloth.

The only thing they needed to do to fix Abuzz was sack the confounded consarge, who for all I know, was Jason hisself. Lord knows he got himself flung out enough times to learn all the ins and outs of the door locks.

@Debacle,
I just think the New York Times had become extremely fearful of its liability exposure. My home newspaper belonged to Hey Martha and I blogged with it for many years. They would close down entire blog sites (normally, local newspapers) until finally the entire site was closed down. Or, was it my newspaper just pulled out or something. Once again, liability exposure.

@BillW,
I'm sure you're right about all that, Bill. Abuzz was becoming very erratic, perhaps even anarchic, in the weeks leading up to meltdown. But as that was the age of spin-offs, one would think The Times could have found an alternative to closing it down. I wonder what happened to all the Abuzz staff? I believe there were 40 or more folks attending to the bells and whistles.

Actually my reply to ehBeth was a tongue in cheek reminder of the time I had a computer glitch which prevented me from logging in to Abuzz. I had just started a new thread "The Silver Dollar Saloon is Open for Bidness." Then as the first patrons moseyed in, the glitch reared up on my PC and I found myself out on the street lookin' tru the swingin' doors. Merry Andrew most kindly took over as barkeep (cum referee, as needed.) Apart from complaining about the pay, he did a fair enough job, I reckon. Bidness was brisk.

Meanwhile, I could read all new postings, even those on other threads, but I couldn't post a thing myself. My only recourse was to email Andy who, being a prince to a beggar, posted my messages. It was all a hoot, in hindsight.

After a week or so, I was again able to log on but no sooner showed up than all my customers decided they'd had enough and hied over to Lola's Coffee Shop to sober up. I flatly refused to go and continued to post on the saloon thread, occasionally replying to myself.

BTW, there wasn't really a face on the barroom floor, pertickerly not Jason Cry's. Otherwise I couldn't have given a drink away.
