Harry on Rideau St. proud of the hat he says he made himself but a bit disappointed that all he could find at home was a pink string to tie it down. I asked Harry if that was his Halloween hat he said no but then went on to explain  the time he was in Japan near Mt. High in a field of tall grasses and somehow cut and bent the tall grasses to make himself a pair sandals.

Helene and Jessie, Toronto, 1988

My loftmate Jessie decided she would enter the Marilyn Monroe look-a-like
contest one night way back in 1988.  Our friend Jano,
fabulous hair dresser and living in our stairwell at the time, transformed Jessie
into Marilyn.

We took a streetcar to ‘Buddies In Bad Time’ theater for the event. Jessie made a scene on the streetcar by sitting on any man’s lap who would have her.
Once at there we soon realized Jessie was going to win without any trouble, her only competition was a 6 foot, 250 pounds  transvestite.

Jessie got on stage and sang ‘Happy Birthday Mr. President’ and 200 gay men went crazy,
she won first prize of $50. 

We took the streetcar back and again Jessie 'worked the floor' to much hilarity. We ended up at the Beresford Tavern on Queen East near Seaton - cheap beer and wild locals.
