Don't Let Me Keep On Walking

When San Geraldo and our friend Judy worked together in the '70s, they worked with another Judy, as well. So they become known by their full names — Judy Shannon; and (the other Judy) Judy Barlup. I didn't meet Judy Barlup for some time.

After Judy Shannon and I had known each other for nearly 5 years, she was staying with us at our house in Guilford, Connecticut, and San Geraldo asked, "Judy Shannon, do you want coffee?"

(CLICK ANY IMAGE TO SEE IT GROW.)

I looked around and commented, "You can probably just call her Judy. She's the only one in the house."





And that's when I learned about Judy Barlup. And that's when San Geraldo and Judy Shannon realized how odd this sounded to others. Of course, from that moment on I began to refer to Judy at all times as Judyshannon (one word).

However, after an evening with Tynan, Judyshannon has come to be known as Judyshannonstreetwhut (or wha). Click here if you missed that recent post and would like to have a hairball's chance in hell of understanding. 

Judyshannonstreetwhut (or wha) headed home Tuesday. San Geraldo and I escorted her to the airport by train. While waiting in the airport station for our return train, I looked up and noticed for the first time that the walkways above our heads are glass. And I loved what I saw, which really has absolutely nothing to do with anything else I just mentioned.









AND FINALLY:  THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL...
WAS ONLY THE HEADLIGHT OF AN ONCOMING TRAIN.

Don't let me keep on walking on broken glass...

  1. Love that Annie Lennox song. Didn't she sing this at the opening of the London Olympics?

      I remember her singing "Little Bird" at the closing ceremonies. Did she sing this at the opening? I also love this song... and Annie Lennox in general.

  2. I had a high school health teacher (an old maid, spinster, if you will) who did not allow any girl in high school to wear patent leather shoes... because they might reflect your underwear. She'd have a heart attack if she were below that sidewalk! (of course she'd have a heart attack if she saw any female on the streets today... bra straps showing, bare midriffs, those high heel! woooohooooo!)

      Ah, Catholic School! I DID have those same thoughts as I snapped away, but I didn't see anything exciting.

  3. Mitchell these images are truly stunning; would you mind if I pinned one? (On pinterest of course.)
    The kidling went through a phase where she loved all things Eurythmics, although she called them the Eurythmatics for some reason, lol.

      Thanks! Thanks for asking! And, be my guest (but please tell your viewers where it came from). I used to have a hard time remembering the name Eurythmics. Eurythmatics would be so much easier!

  4. Love those shots! That's what I miss about not being in an urban area, the opportunity for really cool photography. Of course, if I were in an urban area, I wouldn't have time to do photography because I'd be working in a stressful job in order to be able to afford said urban area. Phew. I need a rest...

  5. I decided to look at all of your photos first this time, after only reading that there were two Judys in your life, one of whom got coffee from San Geraldo in Guilford. I thought and thought and wondered how these photos were going to tie in to that thread. Sneaky guy, you! :) Loved the photos. I first thought that you had gotten a new underwater camera, and you were underwater as Jerry jumped in (oh, wait... with shoes on??).
    If I ever drop by for a visit to Fuengirola, you can call me "JudyChabo" (long "o"...that was a little bitty of a ditty of a song that a long-ago beau used to sing about me), or Judeet (the French pronunciation of Judith)... or Seine ;)

      And when Tynan meets you, you'll probably become known as Judychabointheskywithdiamonds...
