Remembering Woody

Published in: Click to show all news |

My first contact with Woody was when he telephoned me sometime in May of 2003. I had successfully started the Sarasota chapter two years earlier. He asked if I could meet with him and his partner, Sean, and a few of the Sarasota members to help start a chapter in Ft. Lauderdale. It was an exciting event and I came to enjoy his great 'good old boy' camaraderie and his strong and hard working ways. We kicked off the chapter with a large initial number of members.

Carsick

By John Waters
2014 - 320 pages

This is an autobiographical adventure of John Waters hitch-hiking across country on Interstate 70 from his home in Baltimore to his condo in San Francisco. As a young student, he had hitch-hiked often. But now into his 60's, would he be robbed or beaten en route? Would cars even pick up an aging man? Waters proposed the idea to his publishing company. They jumped on it, gave him an advance, so he knew he had to do it. With his trusty cardboard sign saying "I-70 West", this is Waters' cross-country adventure. It is divided into three different parts. The first two parts, fiction, may have been written prior to taking the trip.

Did you know Prime Timers Worldwide has a chapter in Tel Aviv, Israel. About fifteen or so meet twice a week at the GLBT Community Center there in Tel Aviv, on Mondays and Thursdays. The hours are usually from 10 - 1. There is always coffee, and refreshment snacks of some kind. Tel Aviv is very gay-friendly, works closely with the gay community, and operates the center. The city-sponsors many activities for seniors, and many of the guys are also very active with that organization. Usually each month the group will get together for a movie.

Boston Prime Timers celebrated their 25th Anniversary Sunday, August 12th aboard the cruise ship Marika out of Rowes Wharf in Boston. 119 members and guests enjoyed a sumptuous dinner, cocktails, the music of TNY Entertainment (Thanks Tony and Steve) and dancing. In addition there was a photographic tribute to the BPT (Thanks Frank).
