~ Chapter - 53 ~ Heaven and Hell ~

~ Real Friends ~

~ I some time use these secret stairs that I myself built to visit my Hollywood Movie Star friends of years ago that went to Heaven and need some of my company too ~

~ Although Robin Williams is not yet in this photo, I once met him on 24th street where I worked, as he was making a movie called "Fisher King" with Jeff Bridges ~ In 1990 Robin Williams and Jeff Bridges were on 24th street filming several scenes from this movie and as I worked in the building next to this filming I and a friend of mine named Herb were both able to stay on this street during the filming, even though it was closed off to the public and we both got to speak to Robin Williams for some length of time..After speaking to Robin and he later was in various parts of 24th Street, he always took the time to wave to us after he finished his acting part......Great and friendly guy was Robin.....As far as I knew Herb and I were the only non-cast members on that block.....

If I remember right but am not certain as the picture is not clear enough, the two people in the background to the far right might be Herb and myself just before we met Robin Williams RIP on May 21, 1990 on 24th street and Park Ave South.....The park at the other end of this building is Madison Square Park.....Robin was nice enough to come into the area of the building located at Park Ave South, as shown in this photo, to speak with us after we called to him during that period..... The credit for this picture goes to the incredible actor Jeff Bridges..This paragraph along with the url were added on August 22, 2014 almost 25 years after the photo was taken... I retired from this job in 1992...

~ If you look for Van Johnson, keep in mind that he once gave my Dad a bottle of good spirit for a Christmas Gift as my Dad was a door man at the building opposite Central Park that Van lived in ~ The spirit was very good, I know because my Dad gave the bottle to me ~ Constance Bennett also lived in that building and my Dad was so proud of them living in that building where he worked at lol ~

This explains why friends forward jokes. I've never thought of it this way before.

A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, When it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead.

He remembered dying and that the dog walking Beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them.

After a while, they came to a high, white stone Wall along one side of the road.It looked like fine marble.

At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch That glowed in the sunlight.

When he was standing before it, he saw a magnificent Gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl and The street that led to the gate looked like pure gold. He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got Closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side. When he was close enough, he called out, “Excuse me, where are we?”

“This is Heaven, sir,” the man answered. ”Wow! Would you happen to have some water?” The man asked.

”Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have Some ice water brought right up.” The man gestured, and the gate began to open. “Can my friend,” gesturing toward his dog, “come in, too?” the traveler asked.

”I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets.”

The man thought a moment and then turned Back toward the road and continued the way He had been going with his dog.

After another long walk, and at the top of another Long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a Farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence.

As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, Leaning against a tree and reading a book. ”Excuse me!” he called to the man. “Do you have any water?” ”Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there, Come on in.””How about my friend here?” the traveler Gestured to the dog. ”There should be a bowl by the pump,” said the man.

They went through the gate, and sure enough, there Was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it. The traveler filled the water bowl and took a long Drink himself, then he gave some to the dog.

When they were full, he and the dog walked back Toward the man who was standing by the tree. ”What do you call this place?” the traveler asked. “This is Heaven,” he answered. ”Well, that's confusing,” the traveler said.

”The man down the road said that was Heaven, too.'” ”Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly Gates? Nope. That's Hell.”

”Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name like that?” ”No, we're just happy that they screen out the folks who would Leave their best friends behind.”

So-o-o-o. Now you see, sometimes, we wonder why friends Keep forwarding stuff to us without writing a word.

Maybe this will explain it.

When you are very busy, but still want to keep in touch, Guess what you do? You forward email's!

When you have nothing to say, but still want to keep contact, You forward jokes!

When you have something to say, but don't know what, And don't know how . . . . You forward stuff!

A 'forward' lets you know that . . . . . . You are still remembered, . . . You are still important, . . . You are still loved, . . . You are still cared for.

So, next time if you get a 'forward', Don't think that you've been sent just another forwarded joke, But that you've been thought of today And your friend on the other end of your computer Wanted to send you a smile.

You are welcome at my water bowl anytime !!

So here's to keeping in touch . . . Even if it means forwarding on an email !
