Feeling U2
First written January 1995

Yes, I am Old.

Now that we have that out of the way. U2 was my band during the latter 80s and early 90s. I loved U2. I was first in line for their new albums. I was one of those people who slept overnight at the TicketMaster to get the best seats I could for U2 concerts. I loved that band.

The first time I saw U2 was in early 1983 at Barrymore's - your typical small venue rock house. I was very much underage, and I had to bribe the doorman to let me in, and promise him I would pay for lots of Cokes, but no booze. You see, I discovered them in 1982 through their Boy and War albums, and was instantly enthralled by their music. At the Barrymore's show, there was about 125 people, and I think I was the most freaked out of the bunch. I knew this band was going places. I discovered The Edge's riffs and fell entranced by them. I loved that band.

Walking the Dog, or "Travels with a Bitch".
Originally written October, 1998

My partner Jeanette and I live in condo, and we have a 9 year old little dog named Mitzy. Mitzy is a border collie / poodle mixed breed, which accounts for some distinguishing characteristics, including long legs, a long tail, short ears, and a longer snout than most poodles. Also, she never barks, something both breeds do, so I guess that trait got cancelled out. We love her very much, and she's very much our child.

Since we live in a condo, we have to take our dog for walks, something Mitzy doesn't mind at all. Jeanette walks her in the mornings, and I walk her at night. I always walk Mitzy after midnight, and usually after 1am, so the streets are deadly quiet, and I have a lot of time to think. Along my route, there are three houses of note - three houses that have really aroused my curiosity, all in different ways.
