Anchors Aweigh My Boys!
Drink To The Foam!
Anchors Aweigh, my boys,
Farewell to foreign shores,
We sail at break of day-ay-ay-ay.
Through our last night ashore,
Drink to the foam,
Until we meet once more.
Here’s wishing you a happy voyage home.

Thank You Navy For Your Way Over 200 Years of Service To Our Great Nation!
“It follows then as certain as that night succeeds the day, that without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious.”

Navy’s Finest Day!
But There Will Be More
For My Navy
Just to Keep it Real
I Lover Her!
The more I discover about this woman, the more I fall in fantasy love with her. She is so charming.
She captivates and fascinates.
My God! But she is a beautiful woman!
And she can sing en français!
And MOST Important: She WRITES.
“Mel, why did I NOT ever run into you? I would have woo’d you.”
(Or tried to)
Would have given my best shot anyhow. (Such as that would’ve been at the time–my attention span was brief, but for you, I would have taken my time. And worked ‘The Problem’ I had with my infatuation)
I wish I had such a woman in my life now.
But happily and luckily I have had two such women in my life.
(Most men never find one such good woman)
Beautiful, happy, wonderful women.
I had two.
But like a fool, I cast them away.
Because of my wanderlust.
(Yes. I have regrets.)
But I also have my wonderful memories of the time I spent with them.
I cherish these memories. They sustain me.
This wonderfully fascinating woman has climbed up to Number Two on my “Hit Parade”
“If the people are buying tears, I’ll be rich someday.”
“Joni, watch your ass. She just might knock you off the top of my mountain.”
(Just kidding Joni—you will ALWAYS be at the TOP for me)
Forever My Number One!
But Joni! How do you compete with this?
“It was the only thing I could do half-right and now it’s turning out all wrong.”
I found me a real good book to “live in.” It is entitled
“The Complete Works Of Shakespeare.“
“They only put in a nickel and they want a dollar song.”
I LOVE the way she MOCKS Morons
Isn’t this a sad commentary on Americans these days?

Outta My Brain. I LOVE Lauren Bacall!
“Anybody got a Match?”
Bobby Darin The King-oo Cool
Cred for share: NRRArchives
Bertie Higgins – “Key Largo”
Lauren Bacall’s Original Name:
“Betty Joan Perske“
“Anybody got a match?”
Yeah, I got a match:
Bogie and Bacall.
I have ‘swerved’ once more into Lauren ‘Bacal’ (Jewish spelling of her name before Hollywood COERCED her into changing it) and Bogie whirlwind of late.
Lauren Bacall, who died Tuesday (Aug. 12) at 89, had mixed feelings about her Jewishness. In “By Myself,” her autobiography, (Which I have read, cover to cover–twice)) she wrote that she “felt totally Jewish and always would,” yet chided herself for not being more open about her Jewish identity.
Below, five facts about Lauren Bacall’s Jewish life and — in her own words — how she felt to be Jewish:She was born Betty Joan Perske.
Bacall was born in Brooklyn to a Jewish family, but her Jewish-sounding name just wouldn’t cut it in the Hollywood of the 1940s and ‘50s. She changed it to a version of her mother’s family name, Weinstein-Bacal.
“It was a period when people believed that you demonstrated your Americanization by Americanizing your name, and very frequently, Americanizing your nose,” said Jonathan Sarna, professor of American Jewish history at Brandeis University.
“She did not hide the fact that she had these Jewish origins, but it was expected in Hollywood at the time that you would have an American name and persona,” he added.
I once wrote a term paper for the head of the English Department at ETSU. Unbeknownst to me, he was writing an autobiography on Humphrey Bogart at the time. Had I known this, I most probably would not have written my term paper on Bogie and Becall.
But then again, I probably would have anyhow….
And I received an A++ on my paper.
My Prof loved it. Probably ’cause he was a Russian Jew.
Or Maybe not.
It was a great paper.
And he loved it.
(Of course I was drunk when I wrote it)
Took me all of 45 minutes to write.
That is how I ‘rolled’ back then.
Always waited until the very last ‘minuet…’
Bogie was forty-five when he met Bacal.
She was nineteen.
Perhaps there is hope for me yet…
Bogie an’ Baby
If there is just one thing the Navy taught me, it is this:
“No never means no”
“Nothing is ‘written’.”
This is how I got back into SEAL training when I was two years too old…
She was / is so beautiful!
I Will Forever LOVE Her!
She Enriched My Life So Much!
She Was A Delight To Behold!
And to Dream Of
One last ‘fun fact.’
In her book, Lauren described how she came up with
She recounted of how she was so nervous…
when she played along side Bogie, she had to keep her chin tucked into her chest to keep from shaking uncontrollably.
She also tells the story of how the director, Howard Hawks told her she would have to sing in the movie.
She was mortified.
Lauren cannot sing.
She knew this.
But she did it anyway…
It was in the script.
And she was charming.
So Fukkin Charming!
