It saddens me to realize that I am alone here … boohoo K… obviously I am the only trekkie amongst us … I didn’t want to believe I would be the dinosaur of us all but alas it would seem I am =( no one remembers Capt Pike and his plight.
I must have watched every episode of the original series at least 4 times over the years and recently I watched the pilot once more, this time with no commercials. It was the Talosians that peeked my curiosity, I wanted to know how much makeup was used to make him look like that but I was really floored to find out he was a she. Well, you have to admit it was very imaginative.
Well my friends, her name was Meg Wyllie and she was the very 1st villain on the pilot of Star Trek “the Cage”. She also played bit parts in many of the hit shows of the 50s and 60s even soap operas.
So, has anyone out there been a fan of Star Trek at any time?
Yeah, I get into the syfy stuff a lot so don’t be surprised if I find more obscure actors from shows like Twilight Zone or Outer Limits, they really were good shows for their respective times.
Have a great day everyone

Teresa thought about an old hang out on Friday nights from her old neighborhood. Fond memories of laughter, old boyfriends, and favorite drinks. The borough of Brooklyn, a bar called "The Hitching Post", and now only a thirty five minute ride away. Ten years ago was when it began, and ten years later it would soon be revisited. She looked it up and that same bar still was there with the same name. A car service drove her there one Friday evening, as she knew that was the smart move to get home after a night of drinking. Teresa sat down on a stool as the bartender said, "long time no see. Must be at least ten years now". He fixed her a spicy bloody Mary with a celery stalk and a twist of lemon. Teresa's favorite drink, just as he remembered. "That's incredible how you remembered me, and even what I used to drink here". He just smiled and then went about his business. They often talked to each other as Thomas and Teresa shared the same memories. "I was just filling in for an old bartender friend of mine tonight. I actually live in another borough only thirty five minutes away". Her eyes widened in disbelief as it was discovered that they now both are located in the same borough, only one mile away from each other. No car service was needed that early Saturday morning for Teresa, as Thomas drove her back home. After two years of seeing each other, they decided to get married. The loving couple clicked their two glasses together in a toast, as two bloody Mary's met with a celery stalk and a twist of lemon. Funny how the name of the honeymoon hotel was called "The Hitching Post"....Maybe a visit from a young lady to a place she felt was needed to go back to, had a special purpose. Well, it certainly did for sure, as a former bartender who covered that night for a friend, saw someone familiar. A place known as a bar in Brooklyn, and also the name of honeymoon hotel appropriately called "The Hitching Post"......a short love story by Michael....

Larry walked the usual three blocks to his job in the city after getting off of the train. A small yellow item lay on the sidewalk which he picked up and examined. It was a lottery ticket apparently dropped and lost by someone else. He never played before and was curious to see if this would be his lucky day. "Winner to be announced on June 30", it read. That would be three months from now, since it was the middle of March. The television news had the results, along with local city newspapers. When his name was announced and the grand prize was to be ten million dollars, Larry nearly passed out from shock. He claimed it within the thirty days that needed to be done. His doorbell rang as he opened the front door. Lucy introduced herself and then started to cry. She was invited in by him as he calmed her down and asked if he could help. "I dropped and lost my lottery ticket which now happened to be the winning number", she told him. It was found out that it was on the same three blocks they walked to work, yet at different times. "Come with me, I have a nice surprise for you", he said to her. At his bank he withdrew five million dollars and said, "half of this belongs to you". It was only fair as she bought the ticket, but he found it to claim the prize. Half and half was the reasonable solution. Three years later a lavish wedding was performed as they could afford it. Larry and Lucy found much more than a lifetime of cash. It was love and kindness that balance often brings...Maybe a lost yellow item on a sidewalk traveled together had something to do with it. Case in point in a short love story about Larry and Lucy, where the visit may have been unexpected, but invited in for a lifetime.....

Rachel's parents had surprised their daughter with a very special tenth birthday present. It was on a Saturday morning, June 1st. The little girl woke up at 10 AM and walked out into the kitchen for her usual breakfast. Mom and dad were already sitting there, waiting to surprise her. "Happy birthday Rachel" they said as the little girl smiled. They lived in Co-op City in the Bronx, where all of the apartment buildings had terraces. Theirs happened to be on the twenty fifth floor. "Your birthday present is waiting on the terrace outside", her parents told her. Rachel ran to the door with excitement and stepped out onto the terrace. All the way to right, against the wall was a cage covered with a thin blanket. It was removed as she saw a baby bunny rabbit staring up at her. Mom and dad followed her out onto the terrace as Rachel turned around and ran to them for a big hug and kiss. All she had to do was give her new pet fresh food and water daily, along with cleaning out the cage. That was done with no problem whatsoever. She name her new pet Tara, and their love for each other grew day by day. On weekends Tara was allowed into the apartment as she loved to hop up onto Rachel's bed and sleep with her. They would cuddle before falling asleep, as Tara would put one paw over Rachel's shoulder and then lick her cheek goodnight. Ten years later, the now twenty year old Rachel went out to the terrace to change the food and water of her beloved friend. She laid on her side and wasn't moving. Tara had passed away. Mom and dad hear crying from outside on the terrace and went there to find their daughter holding in her arms, a beloved pet. It was one year later on a Saturday morning, June 1st. Rachel was woken up by one paw over her shoulder and a lick on her cheek. The terrace door opened by itself as Rachel followed her there and opened the cage.....Maybe a beloved pet's time was up. Yet not really. A paw over her shoulder and lick on her cheek was a visit that both wanted and needed....Case in point in a short love story about Rachel and Tara, where we need to be when the time is right......

Harry ran into an old friend from quite a long time ago. They recognized each other right away from being college buddies some twenty years ago. Henry and Harry exchanged phone numbers and addresses where they now lived. Six months later an unexpected visitor rang his bell. It was Henry as he thought he would just surprise his old buddy. Now they had enough time to catch up on old times and hear about what one another was doing in their present lives. It was perfect timing as Harry was about to be married for the second time around. Henry agreed to be the best man once again as Harry said, "I am older now and wiser, and this time my marriage will work out". The best man handed the wedding ring to the groom as he placed it on his new brides finger. It lasted as Harry had predicted as the best man smiled....Maybe we get a second chance in love and life, as an unexpected visit occurs. The timing works out as so it should, when the best man smiled....

Mostly on the weekends, Audrey's parents dropped her off at grandmas house for an overnight stay. The ten year old little girl had a special bond with her and loved those weekends together. They would talk, play games, and watch television together before going to bed. The mornings were very special as Audrey always looked forward to grandmas blueberry pancakes. A Sunday morning spent in heaven, before mom and dad picked her up. Grandma always wore her favorite blue dress with her gray hair pulled back in a tight bun. That was how Audrey always remembered her while growing up. Now at nineteen years old, her parents broke the sad news to their daughter that grandma had passed away. All three of them cried and then hugged each other for comfort. At twenty five years old, Audrey moved out of the nest and got her own apartment. She awoke one Sunday morning from the aroma of a childhood memory that smelled like blueberry pancakes. That dish sat there on the kitchen table as it was real as life itself. A faded image of an old lady in a favorite blue dress with gray hair pulled back in a tight bun waved goodbye. Then she disappeared through the front door of Audrey's kitchen. Her favorite Sunday morning breakfast was eaten as she smiled to herself....Maybe special bonds are never broken, as love never dies. It comes back in the form of a visit by a little old lady in a favorite blue dress with her gray hair pulled back in a tight bun. The faded image returned occasionally as hugs and kisses were exchanged on a Sunday morning spent in heaven.....Case in point about grandma and granddaughter, who now spend quite a few Sunday mornings together....
