Chicago, IL USA:
How quickly they sneak up on us. Another FAUX FUR FRIDAY...and although Fur is not really the chosen SKiN to wear as the Temperatures warm up around Chicagoland and other Parts of 'The Zone,' the general idea is to wear what's Greenest for The Environment. Happening weekly since January 2, June 5TH marks the 23RD Weekly Celebration of the Holidate.
It also marks the Birthdays of several Creatures that appeared in The Koopersmith Household while 'Growing Up, Koopersmith' -- during the Summers of the 1960s...when life was much different than it is, by far, today, for those who lived through those Times. Those Pets were Sam & Ham, my Brother Joe's Two Turtles. On June 6TH, my Mom saw to it that I got a Cat for a pre-August Birthday Present. In came THA HIN a gorgeous Seal Point, Blue-Eyed Siamese Cat (who sounded like a newborn baby when he started 'talking') who initially lived (as a smaller Cat) in Florida. Needless to say, Thy's First Winter in the barren, bleak confines of Mid-State Illinois were anything but balmy. He got lost in a blizzard, probably trying to find the warmest route out of town.
It's truly amazing how Animals affect our Lives. And even Today at the ripe age of 56, they are Characters that I use in my Writings, of which the Primary One is:
How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race ©2009
that is nearly completed.
Another Momumental Date coming up in June (even as a short month - on the 9TH) is the 30TH Year Anniversary of the Death of Louis Koopersmith who wasn't the Best of Fathers (or even batting in the Top 1,000,000) but he certainly enjoyed being Mayor of Mendota, IL where We were all born and raised. We all dance, drum, hum or strum along to the beat of our own dancers, drummers, hummers or strummers.
After a certain point in time, every happening seems to have a bearing upon something else. Why should Today be any different!
