It's Corky's Birthday


The child star of Circus Boy turns 64 today. Of course, "Corky" went on to be Mickey Dolenz the drummer of the Monkees, a manufactured musical group made solely for TV. The Monkees ran for two years, beginning in 1966. In my estimation they sucked. Judge for yourself...


But, then, this wasn't much better...10 years earlier:

Okay, I guess the Monkees were cheesy, with the exception of Mike Nesmith; at least he actually knew how to play the guitar and sing before The Monkees. That's how we got the songs "Different Drum" and "Rio," eh? Nesmith is also the fellow behind the viddys "Elephant Parts" and "Dr. Duck's Super Secret All Purpose Sauce," so it's not all cheesy. (P. S.: Even know I'm in "You know where" I know the last letter of the alphabet is zed, and that's spelled with three As, eh?)

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
