"Them"? Is that a skirt or, like, culottes? Or multiple skirts?

(very fetching.)

they are ruffled culottes.........my daughter's pajamas, actually. But Bernie loved them so much he wouldn't give them back.

He's planning a shopping trip for pink ballet slippers to match.

actually, the photo isn't posed. He was just sitting there talking as if he were properly dressed.

Cute, isn't he?

Personally I don't care about Bernie's outifts, or whatever level of play is shared.

I like him, period, in or out of theater.

talking to his daughter (whose just back from Alaska Hell) and my daughter on the balcony. He wanted to dance and sing, but we wouldn't let him.


You can't keep Aussie blokes out of frocks, either.

How I missed this is beyond me. Glad to hear Bernie is doing well. It's a scary situation and when it happens to you there is a sort of disconnection with reality. Anyway he will probably be better than new :wink:

Well, that is a cry for help if I ever saw one. My diagnosis? Bernie is spending waaaaay too much time with women. I think it is my duty to move in and help de-program the poor guy, so that he can live a healthy and productive life as a man once again.

The only question left to answer is: How much should I charge for this service?

Nope.


EVERYWHERE.


My non-gay male friends end up in frocks whenever they can.

Like - every year, if they could, when we did our annual big end of year play in one of my major social groups.


AND - men have weird lips.


They don't have proper edges - so it's harder to get lippy on them properly.

Believe me - I know these things.

"Blind man breakin' out of a trance
Puts both his hands in the pockets of chance
Hopin' to find one circumstance
Of dignity"

These slacks are from a line of manly clothing I'm designing for the US Army Marine Corps. Working on the important aspect of 'branding' now. Proposed labels:

DoA...advantage of ambiguity and relevance, either 'don't ask, don't tell' or, obviously, the other thing that happens to soldiers who trust politicians

DickDignity...matches the recruiting claims of the two things poor kids will get from joining the army

Yo Bernie...

...hope things went well at the Pan, Friday....if you folks did get there. Thursday was exceptional...although Joe dominated the conversation with his wild stories about sex, mayhem, and debauchery.

Kicky and I have decided that next week...we're gonna start some good conversations with the crowd. We've been keeping to ourselves way too much...and it is unfair to the great looking women dying to interact with us.

I'll give you a call next week...and if you can make it...we'd love to see yez.

Lola and I took our two daughters and my ex-wife there last evening for dinner. Given that the weather seems likely to be suitable, next thursday sounds fine at this point.



As regards my health, etc...truly, I am fine. Modern cardiac techniques for my sort of problem are amazingly unintrusive and quick. I would be in far worse trouble had I been in a medium-serious traffic accident. It isn't the first time I've been close to biting the big one (rafting and mountain climbing) so it wasn't even much of a shocker in that respect (which is not to say that the body betrayal thing, even if expected sooner or later, isn't a big piss-off anyway).

I love you all for your caring and concerns and your sophisticated fashion-sense - but I'm fine.

What a song eh Bernie?You should have put it all up.I once saw him sing that from 10 feet.It was murderous.That Unplugged thing is tame.Toned down.He was playing at home in that.

Bernie-

I was thinking about you and it struck me that Philip Larkin's Letters might be a book you would enjoy passing the time with now that you're not as active as you were.He might be a bit right wing for your taste but a dash of spice now and again never does much harm.You can take it all with a pinch of salt anyway because he never got his hands anywhere near the levers.

Yeah, it sure is one hell of a song. Coming in at one from a mere ten feet would likely make for 'murderous' calibre, no question.

I'll look for Larkin's Letters. First bumped into the fellow courtesy of the New Yorker years ago. Liked his grouchy humour immediately. Right wing is fine in poetry, as you suggest, and pathological only in public policy.

How have you been doing of late?

ps...here's a headline from the Independent which is going to cause no small amount of fun over here...
Quote:
George Galloway, the anti-war MP for Bethnal Green and Bow who rocked the US Senate earlier this year, is to be accompanied on a speaking tour of America by the actress and activist Jane Fonda.

What the hell. There's likely to be civil war in Iraq, might as well get another one going in America

At the first anniversary of this thread, I just wanted to make a quick note that I'm glad you're still around to argue with.

Hang in there, Bernie!

Thanks, Thomas. I'm glad the old fart made it. I would miss Bernie's rye sense of humor. (Like in rye whisky.)
