A Pure Heart

September 24, 2015

…. the last two weeks have flown by in an interesting way…..

Living down in Palm Springs

… with a bed left by the previous owner…(she actually left all of her Naugahyde furniture which I gave to charity)…. and a TV tray…

an outdoor chair ….

and an empty house…..

has been quite wonderful…ohh I did have my laptop…put in wifi….trying to live “cordless”….using “Sling TV”…to connect to CNN…

my LA house has not sold yet…it waits on the bank to approve this man (who put down the minimum) for a loan….

whatever Happens is meant to be…I have to rein in my Impatience…

I was mesmerized by Trump at the Fox and CNN debates

…I frankly HATE political speeches…which goes back to Eisenhower when my father who was part of THAT White House…made us all watch ….and not get restless as children do…………

but Trump is sure a “Reality TV” PT Barnum type character…and certainly will go down in history as changing the usual boring Politically Correct politicians as they take up time to say nothing to face the fact they have to be more entertaining even if they are lying….I mean today you can say one thing to appeal to some people and then the next day go 180 degrees the other way when attacked….saying “Oh I meant….”

I came up from the desert yesterday…as my “LA Family” is taking me out to dinner for my 69th bday tomorrow…and I had to go wig and dress shopping with my dearest oldest friend Jim…for a Knock-out Halloween Party that our friends Nabil and Jeff are throwing at their Wonderful house in the Desert….

well a man I found in Palm Springs who is doing our make-up….recommended “Hollywood Toy and Costume”….but as we ambled down Hollywood Blvd…I noticed a store before IT that had FABULOUS wigs….but we went into HT and C…and we told the girl what Jim needed and what I needed….well Jim loved the price…and snatched his…without trying it on….I bought a cheap one also…but on the way back to the car went into the wig shop I had first spotted….and though pricey am going back tomorrow….

Jim said “I will wear it ONLY once in my Life”…and I thought Yes…

but that is ONE moment in time NEVER to be repeated…..

the same leaf will NEVER fall from THAT tree again…(sigh)…I am more of a romantic….

Seize the Moment type ..and Make it THE BEST….one can…..

then we motored out to Lane Bryant’s at the Westside Pavilion..to see what dresses they had….well I was shocked..as the store is about the size of a match box……they had NOTHING…so back to the internet…where I already ordered a dress for me….

we both were hungry…so walked to the Far end of the shopping mall to the Westside Tavern…Jim was kind of tuckered out having to walk so far….we had to sit down a couple of times….but God Bless him..as he is Always UP……

but Man the waiter we had……. TOTALLY made up for Lane Bryant…..he is Black…and I thought straight …until Jim complained about Lane Bryant…where upon he went into this hilarious spoof of LB….it made me think of my favorite comedy show…which just closed on TV…”Key and Peele”….

ONLY Black people can make fun of what white people think of them…the stereotypes…..

the last show was of a black man (Key) being arrested in an alley for doing nothing…handcuffed and thrown to the ground….as the white officer is about to put him in the squad car…well Key passes out…and opens his eyes to see this homeless man (Peele)…getting up from behind a garbage can and calling the officer by name…saying that he will take care of the situation…the white officer smilingly hands over Key to him….

the next scene…is Peele leading Key… breaking through the screen..Peele all of a sudden is wearing an orange suit, hat and sneekers…they enter “Negroland”…it is like a scene out of an old MGM movie…with everyone (they are all Black)…dancing and singing….and you can get a loan with no questions in “Negroland”…..

then Key comes to…… on the cement and is thrown in the back of the squad car…and looks back at the homeless man as the car pulls away……

but This Waiter totally made our afternoon…as he was SO hilarious….and told us how he WOULD go into the movie theatres upstairs until the white audience complained he talked too much….

and if you white people HAVEN’T….. you MUST go to a Black theater….half of the fun is hearing the women talk back to the screen…..

I see now why so much history has been told verbally rather than written…..if it is not passed down…well it is lost….

The Pope’s visit has Totally Moved me…..what he has done for the world in his two years of being the Pope…is more than politicians could EVER do…..driving in that small Fiat…something that no one has EVER seen in any politician…much less a “Reality Star”

his compassion…caring for the poor..the elderly….for children…..

he has made the Papacy what it should Always have been…

caring for other than the rich entrapment of Life so so many people seek….where a smile

caring for those less fortunate than you …..can do sooo much more….

he brought back the focus I was born with 69 years ago

…that I have lost in the last few years…..

of basically humbly Caring and Giving….

A Pure Heart
