WEEKEND & RECOVERY
Memorial Day weekend looked like we were invaded by the Jersey shore. A couple was caught cohabitating in full
view of the Mooney’s house and the Marina
late afternoon Sat. When asked to leave by the cops the randy couple practiced
some simulated sex on the pier. And a Massapequa
prom group at MotelO caused a ruckus according to the
cops. With the economy in the tank weekly renters are becoming the norm. They
come here crazed with little regard for their
neighbors or their property (lock your bikes). Savvy Kismetics
celebrated around town with house parties. One of which was Mike & Marge’s
petite soiree at Honey Do with just a few good friends and a chance to treasure
Loss: Fred Rosenberg – Helene’s longtime significant other died last week – at
a memorial service in NYC many of his friends spoke so very warmly of his
kindness and genuine friendship. 2
summers ago Helene Fred and I were disappointed that there was no place to
observe the Yom Kippur Holyday in Saltaire or Fair Harbor. I had a book of the service used in
synagogues and on a beautiful day we went to my roof deck (closer to heaven)
and took turns reading passages from it – the first time for each of us we
really got into the spirit and discussed various parts. It was so significant –
meant so much more than doing it by rote in a temple, we formed a deep,
significant bond – I know that I will always remember him on that day
CITINGS: Girls night out as Charlie Fagan's dtr- in-law and several of her sexy friends - young moms
with a day off from kids and husbands - received the special attention for
being "virgin tent occupants'. The glam group graced the tent as the first
tenants - waitress Chloe also felt lucky to be serving them and Karen kicked in
some shots for good luck –
Congrats to KFD Chief Dom and wife Kellie – expecting their
first. With two such gorgeous parents the baby will be a knock out. Speaking of
gorgeous Brendan O’H lost 60 lbs this winter.

Market news –
wouldn’t believe this if I didn’t see it – Andy selling Saltaire
sweatshirts!! Selling KFD shirts to dad
– does that count?
I’d buy anything
Keep an eye on Muggsy – he will sport at least three different looks this
summer – at press time it was shaved head and closely clipped Goatee. He looks
good no matter what.
Lauren Leone, whose dad Gary was just made Commissioner,
applied for and was accepted for membership to the KFD, She has to take all the
training classes this summer, take and pass the Yaphank hands on training then
take and pass a written test. Maybe she’ll get there before Altieri.
Who commented after an FD response to a boat fire off of West Light House last
weekend while Geri & Bob of Paradoz watched. “I’m glad people in Kismet can see us at work so
they know we are more than just bake offs and pasta nights. We are more like a
part of the entire Fire Island system of Fire
departments– just one big fire department as we all work together”.
Geri & Bob of Paradoz – uh oh, what did he do to be giving her those
Although imperiled there are still singles houses. Just ask Sanctuary’s Dennis

Marry Marrieds will be celebrating trio birthdays. Jen at “48
(and holding)”, Chris, and Gary “not 48”. All lookin’
good! (see related article)
The Inn’s Joey, who
has entered a new career in “journalism” if you could call it that, – has a new
teaching job in Queens – “it’s better than the Bronx,
at least they listen”.
According to Lou R “there will be softball this summer”. He
is just waiting for Verne to return calla from Saltaire.
It will be a match between KFD & SFD. Tryouts for starting lineup will be
held. Stay tuned (I hear Pasada is available only if
guaranteed a lead off spot)
Fish Tales: Rich caught a 30" on Saturday. If you go to
the Kismet dock at midnight you can see squid, crabs, striped bass and small
bait fish all swimming around in the bay.(if that’s what you are doing at
midnight on Sat hope you see more than that!). Water is unusually cold, too
cold for fishing off the beach.
Gregg says “Volleyball is played more regularly on the beach but overall
quality not what it was; hey, but who is.
Why I Love this Place!!!
Music Music Music-
I regret I have but 2 ears locked in9t one body so I cannot report on all - but
I must once again marvel and the variety and endurance of Don & Willy at the
INN whose perseverance is no doubt fuelled by the very and well earned
adoration if Cosmetics - thank you to Ashley for their continued presence and
the endless hours of pleasure given - last Saturday during their performance a
siren went off and we saw our KFD burst into. Very
impressive. A little later Don said “be careful – the next siren might
be for you” and sure enough a siren went off to rescue one of the patrons who was possibly overserved. The Out
features the perhaps underappreciated but extremely talented Chilly Willie who
will perform solo or with an able accomplice for equally endless hours in heat
& chill - segueing from Sinatra to swing to the blues to satisfy the wide
range of patrons - sometimes barely listened to but always worth the effort - I
salute you musicians everywhere-
AM I invited to the coaches
Coffee will be at
Sunset’s 15th Annual Hunk, er, Coach
party. They’ were on the 4:10 Friday (see related article)
The OUT is stealing BVT’s BLT Sat nite
– black tie toga or lingerie – I’ll look in my closet…(only
3 showed up in costume)
This in from Bicycle Bill: BVT will once again be hosting
THE REAL BLT this Labor Day Weekend, most probably on Saturday night with a
rain date of Sunday night.
The KFDA had a well attended meeting to plan this year’s
events .It was unilaterally decided by Joe & Joanie to discontinue the
Pancake Breakfast unless anyone else wants to take it over. If only I could
cook! There will be a Scavenger Hunt and possibly another Talent night. Duck
races will continue. The Bake Sale
will be repeated sans books. Just as the Out co-opted the BLT night, the KDFA
will borrow another Seabay event: and Gregg W will be
in charge of a “Tasting” in the firehouse. Yum! Dates for these events were not
released for this column.
