Stories of a Lifetime
Sixty-Word SZEN Story by Gary Szenderski
After 50 attempts to start listening to the grind
of eeeeeeeea it was decided to look under the hood.

bed, protected from the 15° temperature. Then Dad tried jiggling
the wires, muttered something, and vrooooom.
The Night I Almost Peed on Henry Kissing
Tapped for the Order of the Traveling Boitanos,
Skip Kaltenheuser also writes to scratch the occasional political
itch. Following the White Houses Distinguished Public Service
Award to Henry Kissinger, Skip thought the rest of us could do
no less. Heres his remembrance of the great man, a sort
of premature appreciation, which appears in Ozy. Think of it as
Henry the K is back. Not hanging with Jill St.
John, but holding hands with Hillary. A mentor. My guilt by association
resurfaces, decades after I hung out with him. Its 1980
and here I am at F. Scotts, a hip, upper-crust bar in Georgetown
with an art deco motif. Looks like Reagan will win the White House.
Winds of change are coming...
