    Tulis, This is lovely and fun. Thanks and Merry Christmas or should we say Santamas? My parents were atheists, as I am, but they sent me to Catholic school, Holy Cross on W 43rd, theater district. So, my relationship to Jesus and Santa is interesting. Christmas was very big in our atheist house, even had a nativity, which I still have and put under my tree Santa topped tree every year. Best to you in 2023. Constance

    Virginia O’Hanlon was 8 years old when she wrote the Sun asking that question about Santa. So to 8 year-old Tulis and Tulis of a certain age… Yes, Tulis there is a Santa Claus… you betcha!

My Father Was An April Fool ~ Monday April 3, 2023

My Father was born on April Fools Day. Our relationship was rocky. Dad wanted things his way because he was the father. I know this because he told me. I wanted things my way because I was the daughter. He knew that because I told him. We drew our lines in the sand, and we waited for the other to blink. For me it was very simple. My father was usually wrong, and I was right.

She started singing in 1931 and has never stopped in spite of being sidelined more than once. Marilyn Maye has lived through more crap than most of us will ever see. Talk about opportunities for having the blues. And yet she chooses the crow’s nest as her permanent home.

March Madness – And The Women are WHERE Exactly? March 20, 2023
