Yes, it was only 3 months ago that President Barack Obama was in Centennial Park in GaYBOR/ Ybor City. Three more Cheers for America and our President!!!

The Judy B. Goode & Paul Thomas Show

Miss Judy B. Goode will be coming back with Piano man Paul Thomas to GaYBOR to perform a very Special Birthday Show. That Crazy Show is Sunday, March 3, 2013 at Hamburger Mary’s. Rumor has it she will be turning 50 that day!!! OMG!!!

People are Talking:

What a great rumor we were told about 1 month ago that some of the Hillsborough Board of County Commissioners were actually thinking about a countywide Domestic Partnership Registry for Hillsborough County and might be worth talking about! We held back writing about the rumor because it seemed to be only that, wishful thinking of one’s imaginary dream and no committed action! But this is a new 2013 and we will see!!! Just last week, Pinellas County Commissioners voted for a countywide Domestic Partnership Registry. And we thought that Hillsborough County was the progressive county. Local municipalities Tampa, St Petersburg, Clearwater, and Gulfport had their city councils pass the fair resident legislation. Yes, it does make for a more equal, fair and happy economic community.

You Just Can Not Make This Up


Back in our college days at USF, we had 2 good friends who were lovers (and drag queens too.) Carrie had just gotten a newer car but wanted to keep his old car, the Orange Bomber! Our apartment complex wouldn’t let us keep it there. Our two friends lived in a trailer court on North Nebraska Ave. They said sure just bring it over here and park it behind our trailer. We brought the Orange Bomber over and parked her behind the trailer. The four of us we sitting on the picnic table, drinking a beer, when all of a sudden Mark noticed something!!!! The back of the car was starting to sink into the ground. More!!! More!!! More!!! … Then the front tires were off the ground and the trunk was going into the ground. Everybody started to yell…” SINK HOLE, SINK HOLE!!!!”

 Our two friends ran into their trailer and we all started to bring out wigs dress, shoes etc etc etc… and tossing them into our other cars. By the time the fire department and police arrived there was a big crowd around. The firemen came back laughing and said, “Guys there is no sink hole. You just parked on top of an old septic tank and the tank collapsed!!”

After the tow truck got her out you can just imagine what the car smelled like. LOL
