...and they lived happily ever after. Smith & Lady: poets, artists, photographers & adventurers.
Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )



kathy’s stopped wearing her seat belt.  says so what – you don’t wear yours.   i’ve never worn mine, so I’m consistent,- whereas she’s always worn hers, so she’s changing.  says so what, we’ve less than 7 days, we’re not going to crash before we go.

i cringe, glance quickly skyward to see if Giant Hairy Foot is coming down on us. tell her the last few days before the prison break are the most dangerous – that’s when Sky God enjoys playing if he notices you’re getting cocky.  never assume you’re safe until you’re safe – and you’re never safe on this earth until you’re dead – maybe not even then. Sky God sees your guard down and down comes the Sky Foot playing Do The Earth Stomp on your head.

best to sneak out of town.


kathy says i like to run from the law.  not true – each time i ran it was the logical thing to do.  the equation is simple:  get caught by the law versus MAYBE get caught by the law.  that ‘maybe’ offers a whole lot more territory.  10 times running, i got away 9.


while waiting in long xmas line at borders, i leaned over and kissed kathy.  man behind me gasped.  probably thot she was my daughter. since then i’ve tried to look fatherly whenever i fondle her in public.

our age difference unsettles some. they wonder if i’m taking advantage of her, or she me.  kathy joked i was closer to her grandmother’s age than hers… i am 60 – 21 yrs younger than granny, 27 years older than wifey, 4 & 5 years older than mom&dadinlaws.  told kathy if her father hassled me, i’d turn to him and say “yes, young man?”

googled age discrepencies in couples range from anna nicole smith and the rich dead guy (61 yrs difference), tony randall and his mrs (50 years), down thru my own personal standard in relationships, the 26 year gap twixt lauren bacall and humphrey bogart.

i got a humphrey bogart life.
