A quick nap will do wonders for you. Especially when it’s with someone special.

Got a better name for these daily quickies – Dick-lets as in Chicklets. You do remember Chicklets don’t you ? ANYWAY here’s today’s:

 My Lady Wonder Wench is home from the hospital which is wonderful…but it revvs things up lots of notches around here. I was in such a hurry brushing my teeth this morning that only my elbows were sticking out. I’ve gotta calm down.

Taking a page from my friend Charles Binder’s

website, www.yesterdayisgone.com 

I’m going

to start posting quickie observations on

something like an every day basis. I

guess I’ll

call them, “Dickie’s Details.” Here’s

one:

The first cut in the new Night Connections 2 album is in honor of Det. Lt. Billy McGroaraty, NYPD. He was a funny, principled, caring cop. The bad guys got him shortly after the piece was written. Next time you hear a story about cops, maybe you’ll remember Billy.  

 

My Lady Wonder Wench came home this morning, and as corny as it might sound, this big, dark, nasty, empty house instantly became a home where lovers live again. Susan the post office lady put balloons up all over the place while I wasn’t watching. Cindy down the block made a casserole, and the phone has been melting off the hook with friendly voices. Emily, our nine year old next door neighbor made a 3 foot by 4 foot welcome home card for her, which her mom Bernadette brought over with some home made brownies, and her dad Randy chipped in with some fresh cut up fruit. Ms. Wench is wearing a tough love medieval medical torture device known as a halo to help her recover. It hurts…and it will be there for a while.I’m not going to have much time for the next couple of weeks, so I may miss a podcast or a blog or two. But I wanted you to have the good news. And while I’m at it, I thought I’d give you a giggle remembering something that actually happened to My Lady and me a while ago. So I put the saga called “Mano-a-Mouse-o” up on the podcast. It was a truly funny time. 

Some folks don’t know about podcasts. Mine is a really simple one. Just click right here, or on the “Podcast” icon at the upper right hand part of this page, and follow the easy instructions on the page that opens, and you’ll hear the podcast play.

Instead of our usual feature called Dick’s Details on this week’s podcast, we gave you a few of the pithy pronouncements of Big Louie…his own bad self…the official mustard cutter of the Louie Louie Generation. Here’s a pop quiz to test your understanding of Louie’s pith:

1- Why does Louie say Louie-Louie Generation ladies are, “still hot?”

2- What do Louie-Louie generation guys say they mean by “getting lucky?”

3- What does Louie say you should do when you’re feeling blue ?

Scoring:

 

3 – right – Doctor

2- right – Patient

1- right – Quack

0- right – Tv Actor

My lady Wonder Wench is back. If you’d like to send her a note, just email her at Dick@DickSummer.com All she had to do was take that one step over the doorway…and I have a home again.

Taking a page from my friend Charles Binder’s web page, www.yesterdayisgone.com , I’m going to start posting a quickie comment most days. Here’s one:

 The first cut on the new Night Connections 2 album is in honor of Lt. Det. Billy McGroaraty, NYPD. The bad guys got him shortly after the story was written. Next time you hear some negative story about cops, please stop for a moment, and remember Billy. He was a funny, principled, caring cop.
