A Stoned Day

Happy 72nd Birthday, Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones!

Hope you had a great day!

I drove up yesterday to Old Orchard Beach, Maine, for a few days of relaxing and fun under the sun as part of my long summer vacation. Usually I drive up to Old Orchard Beach in August for summer vacation, but I decided to do something different. I am spending a weekend here in July. Should be exciting!
I am at the Libby Memorial Library using their laptop to post this. Before that, I just had a great back massage.

Earlier this week, my cousin from Houston, Texas, Chloe and I went to see U2 at Boston Garden for their Tuesday night show. Chloe brought her sign that said that her mom is watching from above and please play “Kite.” During the concert, Bono saw her sign and got one of the stagehands to pick her up and put her on stage with him. She danced with him and took picture of him and the band. It was a spectacular experience for her.

Wednesday afternoon, we went back to the Garden in to see if we could see the whole band as they enter the Garden for the final show. We managed to meet Larry Mullen Jr., the drummer of U2.

Chloe left Boston that evening with happy memories. She really enjoyed her visit to Boston.

Happy 54th Birthday, Alfred!

My older brother,who was born on July 13, 1961 and died from injuries he got in a car accident on June 19, 1980, would have been 54 years old today. He was very capable of making friends and keeping them, unlike me who was a child with undiagnosed Asperger’s Syndrome.

It was a very traumatic event in my family’s existence, especially from our parents. Now, both our parents are deceased. Mommie passed away in January 2014, and Daddy passed away in April 2015. Although I have three older siblings that are now senior citizens (they all are over 60 years old), I do feel alone.

Fortunately, I do have other relatives. Right now, my cousin Chloe is visiting me right here in Boston. She flew into Logan Airport last Friday from Houston, TX. Tomorrow night, we are going to see U2 at the TD Garden!

Happy 10th Birthday, Outside In!

It was 10 years ago tonight when I used AOL Journals to set up this blog. In 2008, I moved the blog over to WordPress because AOL Journals was shutting down. I had my ups and downs with this blog. Good thing is that it’s popular because it now has 97 subscribers!

I write about Pop Culture, Asperger’s Syndrome, my writing, my art, and sometimes my personal life. The last 10 years has been a great journey for me. I am going to continue with these posts of mine.

If only there was a song called in “Outside In,” instead I found this called “Inside Out”. My blog is good at keeping the memory of The Traveling Wilburys alive.

Happy 75th Birthday, Ringo Starr!

The drummer of the Beatles hit a milestone today. The CBS Evening News reported tonight about Ringo’s big day! Hope you have a great time with the peace and love, Ringo!

Very sad when I heard that Patrick Macnee passed away on June 25. He was also 93 years old (his birthday is February 2, 1922). Grew up watching him on TV and in the movies. Most notably in the Avengers.

I even met him once back in 1989 when he was on a book tour for his memoir, Blind in One Ear.

Felt very sad when I learned the news last month about Christopher Lee (May 27, 1922 – June 7, 2015). He was 93 years old. Grew up watching him as Dracula. A truly scary count!

He even played a count in the Star Wars films.

He even appeared in the Hobbit movies.

He was the Man with The Golden Gun (a James Bond movie)
