Pony Polish Prince

RiaD is off (again), going to some High Society http://www.imdb.com/title/tt00…  Art Show. So no T.I.T.A.S.S. today.

& its a dinner honoring artists (my girl! w00t!) whose work is being displayed at the opera house…. whatthehell do you wear to that?

Robyn suggested I wear fresh road-kill & tammy faye type make-up in order to fit in with the high society crowd!


but she actually will wear:

My girl & her BFF bought me a dress! (it kinda looks like a nightgown to me)

it’s got spaghetti straps, is ankle length, beige with a black print that looks like bubbles and swirls (a lot at the bottom & gradually less as it goes up)

& strappy black sandals! & my hair up.

O & NO sox

On to the Party!  What are YOU wearing to celebrate the work of The Polish Prince?

another h/t to robyn  for this https://www.docudharma.com/view…


Bobby Vinton has been called  “the most successful love singer of the ‘Rock-Era'” . (BILLBOARD MAGAZINE) Starting with his first hit release ” Roses Are Red” in 1962 through 1972  (10 years) he had more #1 records than any other solo male artist. (BILLBOARD  MAGAZINE)


Born Stanley Robert Vintula, Jr. in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania (near Pittsburgh), he was the only child of a locally popular bandleader, Stan Vinton (Stanley Vintula, Sr.).

At 16, Vintula formed his first band, which played clubs around the Pittsburgh area. With the money he earned, he helped finance his college education at Duquesne University, where he studied music and graduated with a degree in musical composition. While at Duquesne, he became proficient on all of the instruments in the band: piano, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, drums and oboe.

Vinton’s birthplace of Canonsburg, Pennsylvania is also the birth place of Perry Como. Vinton has been honored by his hometown with a major thoroughfare Bobby Vinton Boulevard. Canonsburg town fathers had plans to erect a statue in his honor, but Vinton vetoed the idea noting that the $100,000 planned cost could go to far more important town needs.


The Book


I suspect that this one is not in danger of being recommended, but don’t even think about it.     If I have to remind you that there’s a Front Page with good stuff on it, well, I gotta wonder about your prioroties.    Mission Accomplished!

The song that David Lynch changed forever


Roses are Red

Sealed with a Kiss

Melody of Love (multi-lingual)

There, I’ve Said it Again

Is the Pony/Pie/Hide rating system too cutsie?

    Over the mountain

    Across the sea

    There’s a girl, she’s waiting for me

    Cross over the river, beyond every cloud

    She’s passed the wind that’s blowing loud

    Over the mountain, a girl waits for me

    Tell all the sands and every blade of grass

    Please tell the wind to let my love pass

    Over the mountain, a girl waits for me

    Tell the moon up in the sky

    Tell the birds that fly by

    That over and over and over the mountain

    My love waits for me

    Into each dark and starry night

    Oh, what a mystery that’s sealed so tight

    Over the mountain, a girl waits for me

    i remember now why i don’t go to these society thingeys


    i was uncomfortable all. night. long.

    they had hors d’oeuvres in the lobby…that was okay… a table with fruit, cheese & veggie trays, a table with meats (chicken nuggets, chkn wings, little roast beef sandwiches, swedish meatballs), a table with desserts (brownies, lemon bars, several types of cookies, little pecan tarts)

    and we walked around and looked at the artwork…

    then we found out this was to honor the graduating seniors, there was a presentation to attend…this started at 7pm…

    they called each student up & told about what their degree was in, what fraternity/sorority, deans lists, clubs, societies etc…. FOR EACH KID they did this…we left at 10pm & they’d got about halfway….

    you’d think, being a college & all, they’d know 100 kids at 5min each…..


    i wish i’d been here!
