Fire Ant hills in South Carolina
In the Cape May, NJ off-season of early 1975, my partners in Whale's Tale, www.WhalesTaleCapeMay.com, Chuck Pritchard and Hillary Russel.-- and I -- with a couple of other friends -- drove our beat-up old Chevy van to Key West and back for a ten-day vacation -- mooching off friends who lived there, we were still broke. We slept in $3.00/night campgrounds in the truck, one night, each way.
One day as I was driving north on I-95, I had an urgent need to "water the grass", pulled off onto the shoulder, and walked down the grade away from view. I had never even HEARD of fire ants -- being a Yankee -- and after relieving myself while standing on a low mound, I returned to the truck, and by the time I climbed in, my ankles were ON FIRE, and I discovered my legs were COVERED in tiny red ants and I RIPPED OFF my jeans (only), and got them all off -- before they got into the van.
I had to empty my pockets, leave the jeans on the side of the road, and drive in my underpants, until we were well enough away to feel SAFE, and I could pull out something else to wear (causing UNLIMITED hilarity -- including from me).
It took a full TWO WEEKS to completely heal, and I found that fresh aloe juice helped in the healing/soothing the most.
I DO hope that Gen. Kelly has BETTER LUCK in the Trump White House!!!
I'm NOT SURE we need THIS bit of hypocrisy:
LOL!!! Sean Hannity needs to DIVORCE his wife, Jill (Rhodes) Hannity (it was Jill's college roommate, a Republican Operative, who told me Sean is GAY AS A GOOSE), and settle down with a man -- or even a HAREM of men, it he needs that -- LOL!!!
And with the Los Angeles Blade, a respected gay publication, publishing the following -- AND NO MAJOR PRESS picking up on it -- I have to ASSUME that the American/CIA Press CONTINUES to protect high politicians from public disclosure of their GAY DALLIANCES, like they have Presidents Nixon, BOTH Bushes, and Obama -- and in fairness, they ALL KNEW of JFK's and Lyndon Johnson's frequent dalliances with women, as well.
But I have to ask, "TOO CLOSE TO HOME, all ye MARRIED JOURNALISTS???"
Now, in remembering the adventures I had with Chuck and Hilary of Whale's Tale, it is TIME for me to CLARIFY to them that I am NOT UPSET about the "darker-side" of that partnership, and so have contacted the office of Dr. Carole Kunkle-Miller, a psychologist in Pittsburgh, PA, who was and is still close to them, and verified Dr. Kunkle-Miller (whose apartment I have stayed in about 1974 -- with Chuck and Hilary, and Carole's husband to be, Richard Miller, an architect), Carole's email address.
So NEXT I will write to Carole -- especially since I told her recept who confirmed the email address, that I will do that within a day or two.
Last night, I posted this on my friend John Lahr's Facebook page:
Hi John Lahr: I trust YOU will get a GIANT HOOT out of my latest blog posting, which includes my comments on a NAKED SHOWERING that opens a revival -- APPROVED BY SEWANEE/EPISCOPAL CHURCH!!! -- of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof", those comments about 2/3 the way down:
And then this morning, I found John Lahr's piece on Sam Shepard, whom I REALLY loved and respected -- but even more so his "wife", Jessica Lange (because of her struggles with mental illness):

Well HERE is an interesting article that came out today:
Some say their tastes run “vanilla,” while others are more particular: interracial, girl-on-girl, guy-on-guy, group sex. One woman says she prefers bite-sized gif porn because she’s turned off by how over-dramatic mainstream porn can be.
“It’s really, really rare but if I do [watch], I’d rather watch a gif, where it’s like 3 seconds [rather] than the full porn,” she says.
And here, an article about a DISAPPEARED WRITER in Wilmington, North Carolina, whom I'd NEVER heard of, but who has MANY ties to ME!!!:
A missing author, whose two self-published books appear to be TRUE GEMS, and although there is a religious overtone to them, the reviews are NOT about "Christian Values" -- at least not those in today's world of Donald Trump's "Christians" -- or Franklin Graham's or Newt Gingrich's.
Interesting that she loves Kure Beach like I do, has roots in Rocky Point where my Baptist cousins, still addicted to Trump and disgraced former NC Republican State Senator Thom Goolsby, and DRUGS, my cousin's grandson dying in his sleep a year ago when NO ONE knew he was addicted.
Her one book is set in Chinquipin, NC, a tiny hamlet home to Randall Kenan, who APPEARS to be descended from the cook, pictured in the kitchen of Liberty Hall in Kenansville, very nearby.
Randall EXPOSED the foolishness of those in charge of the Sewanee Writers' Conference, where he has taught for YEARS, and it was University of the South, with the Republican Party, CIA, and FBI that murdered Tennessee Williams -- to steal his estate from Harvard -- just like Jackie Kennedy Onassis warned Tenn and me on 1/11/
1092 -- WHOOPS!!!: 1982.
And in ANOTHER Wilmington Star News article about the conviction of a convict who escaped the County Jail, is a video having NOTHING to do with that, but showing Gov. Roy Cooper filing into (or out of), a semi-private meeting regarding Wilmington's own FLINT MICHIGAN WATER SCANDAL of DuPont/Chemours GenX chemicals in our drinking water, and while Mr. Cooper has narco-trafficked with my Kenan Family that RULES North Carolina (and rules Donald Trump), so have Mayor Bill Saffo, New Hanover County Commissioner Rob Zapple (or maybe it's Skip Watkins, who looks like his twin), and Susi Hamilton, until recently our NC State Representative, now on Gov. Cooper's Cabinet.
The video is in the middle of this unrelated story (for some peculiar reason): http://www.starnewsonline.com/news/20170731/new-hanover-county-prison-escapee-pleads-guilty
They ALL act like they believe their CHRISTIAN BUBBLE OF LIES AND DECEPTIONS won't BURST on them -- BEFORE the fall election.
But we shall SEE!!!
Ah, a dip in cooling Kenan Fountain would be nice about now, no???
They CUT THE WATER OFF, yesterday, for UNKNOWN REASONS, there being no SUDS showing like in March 2016:
