Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Tommy Lasorda wishes Frank Sinatra a Happy Birthday:


What a great story!

Sinatra was such a bundle of contradictions. A completely arrogant prick a lot of the time, but yet capable of great kindnesses and compassion. Patti Duke, in her autobiography, writes about how Sinatra befriended her and helped her through one of her mental breakdowns, even paying her hospital bills.

Liam Rector once told me that anything I needed to know about timing and cadence in poetry, I could learn from listening to Frank Sinatra.

happiness is very
lives something that is noticeable in a person who is at peace with itself
specially the share
of thanks for!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
