…that it truly is Spring, even if today was cold, windy, and extremely ugly!
Looking up toward the clouds, there are more leaf buds!
Here’s a closer look!
Another sure sign?
IF…I applied for a job today, here in Chicago…I would have to present EVIDENCE of my birth (which occurred back in the
City of Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin).
UNLESS, apparently, I changed my name to: BARACK OBAMA, which was NEVER my name in the first place!
I have already had to do this…butt, my own name is, apparently. “white” or too Jewish (sorry, can’t be BOTH!)…
It’s interesting how BOSSES, even as simple-minded as my last (Vivian Davis) boss at a local display/design company, fired me because I had more experience, and was a better painter/artist that she could ever be.
You see…I thought after I had made such a SPLASH as Stand-by Signwriter in (The Blues Brothers-in the summer of 1979), I stupidly figured, after paying ALL the pc’s to the union (Studio Mechanics Local 476) , that I would be remembered.
I was asked to SNITCH…and I did not…because I could not. I was there, working…for an afternoon…with this amazing man hovering over me whom my mother taught me about–CAB CALLOWAY! As I worked, he talked…could it get any better?
So here I live…now…and I find I cannot care less about any film, or movie, working to be made here, in Chicago. Except this:
Miss you and love you, Cab!
