JACK IS A FRIEND TO ME

JackBarryPortrait

Jack Barry who was born on April 17th

Born a day before me he was Aries all firey–

He was a great friend and artist indeed.

He took me to lunch when I first came

To the “Artist Hut”.

Yes, Jack had a studio in Flamingo Park

Next to railroad tracks where dogs barked.

He did all kinds of style painting–

Fresco he was known for—

I have his one big painting by my door.

He was a great storyteller and a U.S. Vet-

He had a very interesting life of all the people

I have met.

I inherited his butterfly necklace people do see–

When I wear it around my neck all sparkly.

Thanks Jack for being a friend to me.

Poem Dedicated to Jack Barry

April 17, 1948- Aug. 7, 2013

 

Bing’s Clambake Golf Trophy

Precious gift that held Bourbon Whiskey for BingSuzaeBirthday 127

‘White Christmas’ at Christmastime he did sing.

This gift is a “1972” trophy for golf

I protect it in case it does get lost.

See when Chucky was alive

he hung out with Bing and they did all sorts of things.

Like boxing, going to the pool hall

this was always in the city of St. Paul.

See Bing went into incognito

never dressing up in a tuxedo

but drinking he never did ditto.

See Chucky stopped drinking but Bing did not,

He said “Chucky, I’m going to drink every last shot”.

Including the Whiskey Bourbon made in Clermont Kentucky

in the 31st Clambake Trophy I got from dear friend Chucky.

Since Chucky is gone the trophy has moved on

to many places like my friend’s Minneapolis condo.

I had it retrieved when a friend used a duplicate key

to get it back in my possession for me.

Then Clambake Trophy I did lend

to another longtime friend

staying on a refrigerator in Wisconsin “Cheese Land”

Now I finally have Trophy back again

reminding me of Bing and Chucky our friend.

Donald Trump’s Secret Kept Safe

DonaldTrumpMayaJohnsonRonJohnson10

Light bulbs flash and celebrity smiles

all for a photo in ‘Fashion & Style’.

Now at Palm Beach Today

photographer Sue Chevalier

snaps photos of Donald & Melania

on the morning of Easter Sunday.

Just around the same time that year

Melania conceived a gift that was very dear.

Now Sue heard the news and never did brag

she was not a squealer who makes money on rag mags.

Unlike a photographer who heard “You’re fired” with no tears

selling photos of Donald’s wedding so cavalier.

Of course Sue was not at their wedding

Sue was not near—

she was in Bora Bora

having fun times with good cheer.

Bradley The Kind Heart

I remember the day
I was sending off “Unfreezing Prince Emeray”.
I was at Kinkos and approached Bradley with my book
I asked him for his opinion after he had a look.
Funny Bradley has one of my character’s names
I met his mother Jean and my life was never the same.
I helped Bradley’s mother at the end of her time here
She was a great storyteller, artist, inventor and very sincere.
Jean said she loved Bradley and me and then she passed on
I bought Shieka pup for Laddy so he would’nt be withdrawn.
Now Bradley helped me out with Shieka and my Acura car
I drove Black Cherry for miles very far.
He was there when I bought Black Pearl
she is my new ride that was a miracle.
Bradley I have Sam the dog from the carnival
She helped Shieka and Shiekee bond real well.
Bradley was there when “Unfreezing Prince Emeray”
was mailed back in soft cover.
Since then I’ve put Jean in my Butterfly books
as the Butterfly Queen Fairy Godmother.
Thank you Bradley, for you have a kind heart
your generosity helped me get a new start
