God did not give me any daughters He gave me boys His interesting choice I grew with sisters And mom alone No boys or men In my childhood home But God always knows And has a plan Even when we don’t Understand But I never regretted Not having girls My boys were everything Filled my world With fun and farts And snot and jokes And pushing, shoving Bossy blokes Tents,…

I have been an “it” girl in Manhattan among different groups; I have had the privilege to work in the upper, upper echelons of New York City’s Madison & Park Avenues.   At the end of the day, when you take off your make-up, your high heels, your jewelry, your fancy clothes; when you stop dancing, dancing, dancing….all of the fans, all of supporters start falling away like toy soldiers…

Through the added blessing of my second husband, a financial whiz…I have insurance and planning to leave my family. Irony….

Out of The Trap

  From “Monkeytraps” by Steve Hauptman Want to trap a monkey? Try this: Find a bottle with a narrow neck. Drop a banana into it. Leave the bottle where the monkey can find it. Wait. The monkey will do the rest. He’ll come along, smell the banana, reach in to grab to grab it. Then find he can’t pull it out because the bottleneck is too small. He can free…
