Birthday Shout-Out: Rick (Miss Pussy!)


Hey Bloggy Friends! I feel terrible today. I totally didn't realize yesterday was the 29th, and the birthday of one of my best friends, Miss Pussy!! I'm notorious for that at times, I've just never been really good with remembering dates. Forgive me Puss! You know I love you, Gurl! I'm a day late, but I couldn't not post a special birthday shout-out to the one and only diva-supreme!

I met Rick about seven years ago when I moved to Louisville to live with my Dad. He lives there still and is working hard as a student at UofL, studying Art. He is a fantastic artist, who just purchased his own studio in downtown Louisville, so that he can begin to create art and hopefully sell it to the general public.

I have learned a lot from Puss. His impeccable style, sense of humor and demeanor towards living is one that I have found to be quite contagious in my own life. We have had some fantastic experiences together, not only there in Louisville but traveling to different fabulous cities throughout the nation. He is one of my few friends who has actually made it out to visit every city I have lived in, since we met, and for that I am very thankful.

I hope you had a great birhday, Puss. I'm so sorry that I didn't come to my senses yesterday and realize what the day was. I'm going to call you now and attempt to grovel for a minute until you forgive me!

Have a great weekend Bloggy Friends! I'm going downtown today to treat myself to a facial!!!

Love you all!

Last night as I was walking to the train station I strolled through City Hall to see a little holiday celebration going on in the plaza. To my excitement, I was there just in time to see disco legend, Melba Moore, and cast sing a little preview from their upcoming show, Ain't Misbehavin'! I didn't have a lot of space left on my memory card, but I got some footage. I believe Melba Moore is the one in the pink dress. Enjoy, Bloggy Friends!

Hey gurl! Thanks for bday shout out! Those were such kind words! So moving! If only you really meant them! You did didnt you?

It's okay that you forgot me on my special day, but that's okay. I forgot it myself until mid morning!

Anyway... thanks again for the bday wish and yes, I'll be visiting you in Philly, hopefully very soon! I can't wait!

btw... I remember Melba Moore from back in the 80s! I think she's doing Broadway. There something written about her now on www.chicagopride.com

I had forgotten that Phila borrows a little from New York. This kind of thing (Melba) would never happen here in DC. Sad.

Happy birthday to your friend Puss. Is there anywhere you can see his art online? Hope you have a great weekend.
