103 degrees in Portland today! Record heat for this date & by the end of the week- a record for consecutive days over 90 degrees. The dogs don't like it, the garden doesn't like it, & it is making me really grouchy (but then, I am very much in touch with my inner grouch). How do you beat the heat? For me, a little mid-70s Funk. Funk makes me feel not quite so grouchy.. because Funk makes it more than OK to be too hot. Here is the English, American & Czech members of HEATWAVE doing Too Hot To Handle from 1976, my first summer in NYC.
I am a mid-20th century gay man still trying to get a handle on how to live life with meaning. I live in Portland Oregon with my husband/partner of 32+ years & the terriers: Lulu & Junior.
As an actor I have been in over 150 full stage productions, 12 films/TV, over 50 commercials & voice overs.
Our home & garden in Seattle (1981-2001) were published several times & were featured in a "coffee table" book- Flea Market Decorating by Meredith Press. That garden was on the Seattle Art Museum's Tour Of Artists' Gardens in 1999.
We moved to Portland in a fit of middle age anxiety in 2001.
We spend our time & money working on our house & garden in a working class bungalow, in a working class neighborhood.
The old-ball-& chain & I are thought to be a little nutty. ME:
cocktail drinker, tree hugger & seeker.
