"saturday 2 may 20; besides Medicaid mailin' me scheiss 11
years before i turn 65 (I should only live so long!), dinner was
a nice youtube "Italian comedy '60s". what I found was
Treasure of San Gennaro. wikipedia tells you the plot,
here's my spin. Operazione San Gennaro released 25 nov
66, concurrent with Revolver, my Dad in 'Nam and his Dad
dyin' in Detroit with a Eight Mile Road street address. "crime,
comedy", kinda Ocean's 11/ gang that couldn't shoot straight
but what caught my eye was a nun on a plane flying into Naples;
inside her purse is a pistol; she and her accomplice get into an
"Alpha Romeo" and she becomes a vatican Sex Kitten! There's
also a go-go/twist dance scene at a discothèque which is Love, Italian
Style. Falling in love with actresses as I am wont of, SENTA
BERGER plays nun/thief! born 13 may 41 Vienna austria.
I shall check out her filmography at next dinner or sup but wikipedia
has a 1964 Man From UNCLE photo of her and she was in It takes a
thief, a favourite of us Highland boys in '60s! She was even in
a film with "Chin" Douglas! You might be FONDA jane (a
GG Allin cuzzin!) but if you favour the Hopelesly Obscure, check

Sonntag 3 may 20. Miss Lyn, BGN, mention to me about Preacher
Jack (RIP) portrait
drawings! Sadly, you learn more about somebody post-humous than
whilst living. So i'll add another Preacher anecdote. usually, his
manager Peter Levine: ("Kenne what band did you used to be
in?" Even in QUINCY,MASS. cain't be Hopelessly Obscure!) would
drive Preacher back to North Station to catch the Salem train, but,
and Preacher WAS repeating himself a lot towards "the end",
a compliment I heard several tymes which is now a Skippy White "Precious
memory" was: "Ken, I saw you do Marshall Tucker's "cant
you see" with some woman; she sang really good"....hmmm...my
mayflower cuzzin Jody Moore and I used to do "cant you see/what
my HUSBAND's been doin' to me"; she newly-married, me: CHANGING
GENDERS on "guy' songs! (TRANS-posing the chords?...)...He
DID mention this several tymes but shit....following Preacher
Jack?!?!?!?!?!? i had my "A game" on those nights!
I felt like Lil Richard followin' Jerry Lee....whooooooooo!!!!!"......

Sonntag 3 may 20. quite a nice day reading the paper and going online
to: Online Radio Box > genre > german. a virtual tower of
babel of languages but I checked out German American Radio, out
of baltimore that plays "rock> pop > '90s >german".
Prick Up Your Ears coz these Mid-Atlantic German-Americans were
giving some Gizstoric fact about a German born officer served with
my cuzzin george Washington in mid-atlantic. dad's father's great-great-Opa
was Private Johannes Youst von Bayern, served in Trenton NJ, maryland
etc. A lotta oom-pa-pa und schlagers sitting in my easy chair with
great-oma Highland's pater's belly extending (Ma always said "Kenneth,
you have your great-great-grandfather Fischer's stomach'...DID I
wittily reply "Body by Fischer!" George Washington Fischer
born 1859 in that British colony called Ontario looked like if Sgt
Schultz was a burgomeister on der Rhine, alpine hat and mustache
replete!). Some tyme in afternoon was an oldies show announced in
Deutsch and the records all in English but one (German doo-wop oldies?
JAH!). My one semester college Deutsch I understood some info about
Paul Anka. The previous Sonntag I had lissen to the Beacon Street
Union's "a not very august afternoon'....when does lockdown
end? Blue oyster cult's "Then came the last days of May"!"......

"Monntag 4 may 20. Miss Lyn had watched the latest Baptiste
on Masterpiece, episode four. My WGBH app says episode five will
airing channel two PBS 0500. I shall let Miss Lyn chime in on this
Masterpiece classic but there WAS a music reference; Baptiste (French
detective) and his un-knowing Dutch detective son are driving through
beautiful Dutch countryside. Dutch boy says from glove compartment
"what is this silver thing i am holding?". Baptiste: "that
is Music from Big Pink. The band. They all lived in a pink house
after touring with (French accent) Bob Deel-on". Dutch son:
"You are so stuck in the '90s!" Yeah, with that "hey
boomer" comment, you dont know you're Baptiste's BASTARD son,
you BASTARD! Rest of my week was downhill after this"....
