Lisa Baker

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

Lisa Baker and I went through all 13 years of school together…from the lowly kindergarten class at Fairbrook Elementary to graduation day at Beavercreek High School. Along the way, we shared moments of both disdain and awkward crushes – but I always considered her to be a constant friend. We first shared the same classroom during second grade in Mrs. Deets’ class (her picture from that year seen at left), and then again the following year in Mrs. Corn’s third grade class. There were times when we got along fine and then there were others when I can remember her eyes shooting daggers at me during Mrs. Owens music class. And I have no doubt it stemmed for some display of obnoxiousness from me like, oh say, tapping my cowboy boot to the music.  Read the rest of this entry »

The fun continued as we rolled into the last full day of the 17th International Sons of the Desert convention – Saturday, June 19, 2010. Our time together had felt like it had just begun and we were already winding down. Nevertheless, I was determined to make the most of the day ahead.

When I last wrote about Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece Vertigo, I mentioned that it is not one of my favorite of the Master of Suspense’s films. While noting that it was a stylish and visually engrossing masterpiece, I found that it was not all that entertaining. Since that time, my opinion has been somewhat revised. While it would still linger near the bottom a top ten list, I have since come to appreciate the delicious story along with the stunning pallete on which Sir Hitchcock paints. So having said that, perhaps you might see how visiting several of the filming locations from Vertigo while in the San Francisco area was a top priority.   Read the rest of this entry »

If only I had read further..if only I had been paying better attention. There was a gal named Lynne Marie Stewart scheduled to appear at the Hollywood Show on Saturday, April 24, 2010. I saw her name and her photo and read the first few sentences of her bio. Many might be interested in her because she was Ms. Yvonne on Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. Yeah, that’s something cool, I reckon. She also has a long list of sitcoms to her credit appearing in five episodes of M*A*S*H as one of the nurses, as well as Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development, Night Court, Alice, and Laverne & Shirley.
