If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.
— Lyndon Johnson, 36th President of the United States of America

Martin Luther King Jr had a dream. And he died for it, along with the many others, of all colours, who fought to bring the civil rights movement to America.

And we’re back! The summer hiatus flew by, just as the summer itself is doing. In two days it will be August, and then the rest of the year will race away before we can blink. Happy New Year!

Politically, the planet just keeps getting hotter, as does the climate. As a kid, we looked forward to summer as a time when we could shrug off the shackles of school and teachers, kick back with our buddies and maybe find someone to snuggle with until it was time to “see you in September.”

All over America, happy families are waking up to a warm and fuzzy Father’s Day 2018.  Little boys and girls are presenting their sleepy daddies with home made offerings made from bits of pasta, lashings of glitter and scraps of wood,  while they all look forward to a yummy family brunch, a good American style feed of  eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit and more, all washed down with buckets of freshly squeezed juice and pots of good, strong coffee.

Roxanne Tellier – Who’s A Clever Boots Then? Bueller? Anybody?

It’s always weird when you’re recovering from being really sick. I’ve just come out of two weeks of a knocked down, dragged out, cough and snorting extravaganza that left me gasping for breath, and wishing I’d bought shares in Kleenex.

When you’re that sick, when you spend less hours ambulatory and/or awake than you do face down on the futon, you watch the swirl of madness that we call politics with a jaundiced eye;  you know it matters, very, very much who is elected to lead the country, but they all sound like Charlie Brown‘s teacher, and look more like distorted monsters from another planet than they do potential leaders.

Not feeling quite myself these days – it’s like there’s a flu going round. Some sort of energy-sapping, soul-sucking, misery-laden, bone-crushing, muscle-rending miasma, that’s keeping a lot of us from feeling our best, or even very good.

Oh that’s right; Trump is still president. There’s your trouble. Or at least, one steaming pile of it.

Roxanne Tellier – Hell to the No to the Fake News

Roxanne

After a week of schizophrenic weather (it’s hot! it’s cold! it’s raining! it’s snowing!) and even more schizophrenic babblings from the Whiner in Chief to the South of Sanity,  it was an enormous relief to make the long drive out past the airport to the cozy home of friends Candice and Eli, for the New Orleans themed Fam-Damily Music Jam Fest. Within minutes of arrival I was draped in Carnival beads and being pulled on stage for some musical improv.

Editor’s Note – We are blessed today with a new entry from the long-missing Darrell Vickers, who has been tied up with creating, writing, and shooting a new sitcom, moving from one palatial home to another, and finishing his latest quilt, which consists of removed mattress tags and faux velvet Crown Royal bags. Catch Darrell’s cameo in ‘LaLa Land’…he exits the 3rd silver Toyota on the left during the opening sequence, does a ball, heel, jazz hands, turn and tap, onto the hood of a blue Hyundai. (P.S – Mr. Vickers is hella smart and educated…keep a dictionary and a healthy knowledge of Pop Culture handy…you’re going to need them.)

Ladies and Gentlemen…Mr. Vickers.
