He was hiding behind photos of his dog?

We were both amused by the guy on Eharmony who posted photos of his dog. Many photos of his pet – none of himself.

Lynne invited me over ot look at her recent “Interested” guys online. She is visiting her parents in Saratoga and needed a break.

She says she had been exchanging emails with a guy who claims to be close to the Oval Office and insisted he must  be discreet. He signed his first note “Hogan,”

which seemed odd. Hogans Heroes?  His notes to Lynne ( no phone calls, no text messages, yet) were upbeat and newsy. He dropped little Washington gossip quips.

Lynne works for a huge law firm in our Nation’s Capital – and never reveals that information until she knows a person for awhile.  For all Hogan knew, she was a writer. However, he dropped /bragged several clues regarding himself: love of Ole Miss and of beautiful Arkansas were folded into an email Week Number Two.

Google the guy – oh, my!

As clever as Hogan tried to be…the gift size clues he dropped allowed Lynne to “Out” him lickety split. She had her pals back in DC scope him out and she Googled the ever-livin’ life out of his “clues.”

He worked on two failed campigns and was not employed at the time. He had been “let go” a lot of people.

Lynne slipped away;  quickly blocked his emails and went about her merry dating life.

What were they thinking?

The kids who left Smalltown USA disparaged the town by calling it “Hicksville.” The kids who lived there were proud of their special school. Bobby was a Big Man on campus. 

After graduation – he started at the local junior college and discovered he was just another kid. The junior college had hundreds of students  from six different schools and they were bigger, faster, better athletes than him. He avoided sports and decided to “major in girls.” All the girls from his school were on Cloud 9 at the JC – there were so many cool classes and cute boys. The guys from high school were old hat.

For some us, turning 21 and getting “legal” is an invitation to party.

You can drive, or Uber, 40 miles to San Francisco- and all the world is your oyster. Every night can be New Year’s Eve. You can hit the Irish Bars, a SpeakEasy, the Beer Emporiums or go Big Time downtown.

Finally, you can legally, go to the Top of the Mark and quaff. You can try as many dive bars as you want. And, there are so many choose from! Who ha! The HaRa!

Your Passport to Drinking Legal

You can order a Mai Tai, a slow gin fizz, or the 21 Rum Salute at the Fairmont’s famed Tonga Room. You can park at the Union Square Garage and walk right into the E+O and belly up to the bar at have anything you want.

You find bars like the Black Horse – to be perfectly charming. Dude, it is…
