Friday Flash 55.....








The King of Pop sang Billie Jean
Billy Mays pitched Oxi-Clean!
Les Paul, Maude, Dom Deluise
David Carradine applied lethel squeeze!
Farrah's hair drove boys crazy
Karl Malden...Patrick Swayze!
Natasha Richardson, "Uncle Ted"
And Johnny was finally joined by Ed!
Marilyn Chambers sure loved jizz
We'll miss Walter's..."And thats the way it is"!




Of course there are many more, but I only have 55 words to work with.
It sure was a tough year!!
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55...
Please come tell The G-Man!
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment...Then BOOK!!
So from the most gracious host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick-Ass New Year!!

Drive Carefully...Drink Responsibly.
Thank You one and all for your love, loyalty, and support!
Galen..AKA The G-Man

Hi, Galen,
My 55 is up at 1 a.m. Pacific time. I still haven't found out how to post the link here when the piece is only scheduled, not actually up yet.
Does this work?

HAKAWE, G-Man, and New Year,
thank YOU for your support of an aspiring writer and blog-virgin, turned blog-addict (there are worse things I'm sure) like, changing my pen-name from Dianne Gross-Giese to I DiGress
Ha!(I will post a 55 fiction tomorrow, New Year's Day if I can find my muse, hint hint)

anthonynorth said...

A great tribute. I suppose Les Paul had most effect on me. I could never afford a real one but I walked on many a local stage with my copy and tried to make those strings sing.

You'll find mine here.

Eaton Bennett said...

Have a wonderful New Year, Galen. Looking forward to a whole year of 55's yours, mine and everyone's.

And you did good with those 55 lil 'ol words.

At least you did it with rhythm and harmony and no another insidious list like a newscast.

Jess Mistress of Mischief said...

Ah, old year ends...

Thankfully I woke up to a new day in 2010

My meager offering is posted :)

the walking man said...

Oh yeah I meant to ask; what is jizz?

hope said...

Happy New Year to you! Very nice tribute...I think I'll miss Uncle Walter the most. I fear he took journalistic integrity with him.

Mine is up.

sarah said...

reading this...reminds me how fallible we all are. Thanks G-man. Mine's up. Have a great year. Sarah

javajazz said...

man, you poet baby!
is there a book in the works perhaps?
you could entitle it
"G-Man 55, and All That Jizz..."

ps, WaMa,
the word "jizz"
is Galen's earthy term
for ejaculate,
for want of a less classier word,
tho he probably can do a 55
(i think he did already)
on 55 versions of
that magnificent liquid...

pps Happy New Year
Mr. Knowitall...
Lana loves you! xoxo

very nicely done even if you only had 55 words in which to do it. clever, rhythmic, and quite a tribute to some of the folks we lost this year.

wishing you the very best this new year, my friend.

Janna said...

Here I am, better late than never. My post has been up since last night but I just now am getting around to commenting on everyone's blogs.

Sorry for the delay.

Did I mention I slept in until 3:30 in the afternoon?

Oh... yeah.

Hi, Galen! Happy New Year to you! Yes, it was a tough year. We lost so many who were part of our memories, our lives. Nice tribute there.

My 55er is up. It's interactive. I haven't been getting around much this year (blogging) so I don't have many readers right now. But if someone stops by, they can throw their 2 cents into the story! D
