A very beautiful transsexual, Jenna Talackova, has been in the news lately. She was dropped from appearing in the Miss Universe contest in Canada and the United States.
Gloria Allred was the lawyer Jenna chose to represent her. Donald Trump owns most of the franchises. Well, Gloria won her case, although some transsexuals are not yet allowed in all the international contests.
I had a case I wanted Allred to handle. I had a matchmaking business then and a prominent national magazine refused by classified ad. Allred said I didn’t have a good enough case. She didn’t charge me for the interview. This was about 20 years ago when she had a beautiful office on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles.
Some good restaurants I’ve recently tried are East Buffet at 8995 Miramar Road in San Diego; The Beach Grass American Eatery in Poway, at 12845 Poway Road; The Omelet Factory at 5270 Baltimore Drive in La Mesa; Mimi’s Café (best onion soup in town), 5180 Mission Center Road in San Diego; and King’s Fish House at 825 Camino De La Reina in San Diego. They serve a delicious version of one of my favorite salads, shrimp Louie.
Mother’s Day Chat
I miss my parents all the time. Yet, at my age, they’d have to be way over 100, which is not possible. Thinking of parents, here are some wise sayings pertaining to Mother’s Day.
“If you’ve never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent,” stated Bette Davis.
“Neurotics build castles in the air. Psychotics live in them. My mother cleans them,” offered Rita Rudner.
“If you bungle raising your children, I don’t think whatever else you do matters much,” offered Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
“No matter how old a mother is, she watches her middle-aged children for signs of improvement,” stated Florida Scott Camwell.
And now, however you plan to honor your mother, go on out and hold someone’s hand!
