A WALK IN THE PARK Groton, CT. Saturday, October 10, 2009. Poquonnock Plains Park, that is. "What are all these peeeeople doing here? I just wanted to go for a walk in the paaaark. What if I see someone who I know who I don't want to know anymore? What do I saaay? What if I see someone I like? I don't know what to saaaay. How long should I stand there talking to him? Should I wait for him to say, 'I have to go now?' What if I seem too clingy? What if I were to reeeally be myself and he thinks I'm a total nutcase?COMING SOON: Photos of the Groton Fall Festival which took place at Poquonnock Plains Park today.

("Oh, Gloria. You hide behind those glasses in the library all day. It's time you got out more.")...You remind me...I live in a shell...Safe from the past...And doin' OK but not very well...No jolts, no surprises...No crisis arises...My life goes along as it should...it's all very nice but not very good...And I'm ready to take a chance again...Ready to put my love on the line with you...Been living with nothing to show for it...You get what you get when you go for it...And I'm ready to take a chance again with you...When he left me in all my despair...I just held on...My hopes were all gone...then I found you there...And I'm ready to take a chance again...Ready to take a chance again...with you.... (Goldie Hawn & Chevy Chase, FOUL PLAY, 1978.)...(I've got to see this movie. I've got to see it; I've got to see it. Are we going? We're going; aren't we? If we don't go, I'm going to be mad!!!...* * *:)

Be an S.O.B. -- New London, CT. "Port & Starboard" Ballroom, Ocean Beach Park, Saturday, Oct. 17, 2009. 6:30 - Buffet. 7:30 Live Music & Dancing to "Rock & Soul Revue." $25 in advance, payable to S.O.B. (SAVE OCEAN BEACH, Inc., New London, CT) $30 at the door. WHY? All proceeds to fund the continuing restoration of Ocean Beach Park, New London's greatest natural resource, in my opinion. Numerous flyers have been distributed all summer long in what I call "good aggressive marketing tactics." I always did admire good salesmanship, going back to the day when I worked as a sales department secretary at McGraw-Hill, Inc. in New York (1987-90). I enjoyed the benefits of Ocean Beach Park all summer long, thanks to the Season's Pass, which my mother bought for me this year. Broke all summer long because I went to Block Island on two separate occasions to launch my fledgling business venture, MAAP, I packed my lunch and enjoyed the beach. Now I would like to give back. Yes, it is a courageous thing to "go it alone." But I hope to see some of the many acquaintances I've made in the past few years, which includes members of Shoreline Swing who travel "the dance circuit" as I do and many others who I've met along the way. How else do you turn acquaintances into friends? Sumptuous buffet, live music & dancing, cash bar, ocean view, raffles, prizes, etc. Close to home -- don't have to worry about my car imploding in the middle of nowhere -- who can beat that??? Take care. Hope to see you there. Will there be food? (Denise...Denise Dances...2009.)...Seagulls all around...the beach by Long Island Sound......(THIIIIIIIINK SUNSHINE!)
