  1. My wife and I are headed to Key West for a few days next week and are looking for suggestions on places to go, chill, eat, swim, and par-tay. Any thoughts??
  2. 50 years later I still love this gift from my parents. Bert Kaemphert!!
  3. Brandy is the most overplayed song in the world. There's a station here in Jersey (NJ101.5) that plays it so often that I can't listen to the station any more. "there's a port...." AAAAhhhhhhhh!!!
  4. one more... Money: Pink Floyd.
  5. Brandy: Looking Glass. Benny and the Jets: Elton Black Water: Doobie Brothers Ebony and Ivory: MJ and Mr. McCartney Dust In The Wind: Kansas Anything by Steve Miller. Anything by Bob Seger. Desert Island suicide....all of em!!
  6. 'Never Gonna Fall In Love Again" mentions TWO seasons: summer and "Fall". (rim shot!)
  7. I saw "The Fightah" stahhring Mahrk Walberg this weekend. It was wicked good. It was rated Ah cauze they say "----ah" and "---- ----ah" a wicked lot.
  8. In my 55 years on this planet I've never dyed my hair...until yesterday. What a mistake!! I've got a job interview on Friday so my wife suggested SHE do some work on my salt and pepper hair...to make me look younger. I ended up looking like Eddie Munster!! I spent the last 36 hours trying every kind of home remedy to make me look less like Liberace and more like Sam Elliot (hey, I can dream!). None of 'em worked. I ended up going to some 'coloring salon'. The last place on earth I ever imagined myself ever being!!! They said my hair was blue. Not black. Blue...like cobalt. They got the blue out. But my silvers and greys are 99% gone, too. I like those guys!! I miss 'em! Now my hair looks like it's 1983 (minus the mullet). Of course my wife is mortified. She's been doing her own hair for years. I still love her more than anything, though. Thank God I'm 'between jobs' right now...I can hide in my house. It's probably not as bad as I think it is. And some day we'll laugh about this. I just need to tell somebody...and thought you guys might have similar stories to tell. Dave
  9. the spot he did for me was for Nabisco (I think Nabisco owned Lipton).
  10. Back in '88 I had a chance to shoot a commercial with Don. He was a gentleman, funny, fun and friendly. I've got a picture of Don and I in some shoebox, somewhere!! Rest in peace, Don, Dave
  11. Another trip around the sun!! Enjoy the ride, Eric! Dave
  12. Frankie Previte's dad sang at my (first) wedding in 1979. Great voice. Dave
  13. HBTY HBTY HBDM HBTY!!! Enjoy the day, and everything else that comes your way!! Dave

    Negativity

    Ira, it saddens me when I see other men go thru what I went thru a few years ago. My heart aches for you (in a guy kinda way). But let tell you, the negativity will never end from her side BUT it won't affect you any more. With time comes distance. Eventually you will seperate yourself and your identiy from the negstvity and will live a more enriching positve life Hang in there. It will come. Dave
  15. Ira and Robyn... I've got the same home towns as both you guys. My 1st 19 years were in Andover, Mass, too (just like Robyn). Jay Leno grew up around the block from me (when I lived in 'the vale' section). Later I moved to 'the village' where the Shawsheen River loves to flood (just like it did two weeks ago!). It was the best place in the world to grow up. (No McMansion for our family. Simple 4 bedroom saltbox along the RR tracks.) I'm still a Sox fan. My New England accent comes thru aftah a few beahs. These days I'm a Jersey boy. Been here since 1981. Spent 13 years in Highland Park (around the corner from you Ira). These days I am in Princeton, the most Andover-like town in all of NJ. It's beautiful. (Watch 'IQ' or 'A Beautiful Mind' and you'll see what I see every day!) They say you can never go home again...but I found the perfect town that makes it all possible. Dave
  16. Thanks for the kind wishes everybody! I can see retirement from here!!!
  17. Grrrr.... I wanted those 8-tracks! Sad I didn't get 'em. Glad I raised the final price for Bernie's sake. Who got the mini-guitar? I wanted that one too! Dave
  18. Harry, Men marry for love. Most women marry for other reasons. I know it's a generalization, and will piss a lot of women off, but bear with with me. When the 'other reasons' have either been addressed or become unachievable, there's nothing left for the relationship to hold on to. I was married for 25years. I married for love. She married for other reasons. When the marriage hit hard times I worked my butt off to make it survive. All she had left was 'resentment'. There was no love on her part. And probably never was. If the love was there to begin with with you and your wife, great! You've got that to build on. If not, well, maybe it's time to go your separate ways. I re-married two years ago. Again, for love. Fortunately, she married for love too. Did she marry me for 'other reasons', too? You bet, but we've talked about them. And we will talk about them them till death do us part. Dave
  19. ...and it's not even my birthday! thanks for the wonderful gifts! dave
  20. C'mon down to Princeton...we've got black squirrels all over the place. In fact I've got two who frequent my back yard every day. And now they have names "Jimbo" and "The Kid"! Dave
  21. No fancy card. No poem. Just a 'hey, happy birthday, man'. Have a good one... Dave
  22. I changed MY mind!!! "I Reach For the Light" is good. But "IYCYM" is the very best of the Raspberries. dave
