Wedding News From Around the World!... Prayerful Corners, WY.


DATELINE! ....Prayerful Corners, Wyoming..... The On-Your-Knees Sepulchre & Souvenir Emporium is celebrating the once-a-year festival of Smile Day when brides-to-be, high school graduates, and Spelling B Finalists are allowed to wear colored clothing, prints, and even fabrics other than burlap. The mayor of Prayerful Corners cut the ribbon for the 24 hour parade and party on the traditional thirdThursday in July, when the normally somber citizens toss their black and grey garments to the floor and take their first baths of the year! Then it's every man, woman, and child for themselves! Many have saved up loose change and found pennies to buy fabric, Elmer's glue, and office staplers to put together any shreds of whimsy they can manage in the short time they have. It's a mad dash to weddings, award ceremonies, pie eating contests, piñata breaking, three-legged races, and karaoke barbecues! Because by midnight on Friday everything must be tossed into the giant Bonfire Of Stinky Sinfulness in the town square, and the holy vows of glad-to-be-gloominess begin again. Yes! Laugh it up ladies!.... in a few hours it's back on your knees, and NOT to catch a crepe paper bridal bouquet!

From Sybil Bruncheon's "MY MERRY MEMOIRS"... Dagmar Does It Again!

67437885_2451706191554392_5502319002753433600_n.jpg

My twin sister Dagmar never really had any luck with her attempts at start-up businesses. She was always trying to prove to our Dad that she could "make it on her own" despite the fact that she was underwritten by every one of our family members and relatives including a six-year-old niece that she duped out of her allowance over a platinum-mining scam. This photo is of a candy store she claimed to want to open in time for Halloween called Tasty Terrors. Sadly, 33 of her first customers were food-poisoned on her gelatinated locust-bugs. YEEESH!

Sybil Bruncheon's "KNOW YOUR GAY HISTORY!"... Robert Eselberger.

Shishka-Barbara.jpg

Darlings, so many young LGBTQ persons don't seem to know or care about their gay-heritage!... where they came from, what the struggles were, how difficult, and even dangerous it was to be an LGBTQ youngster in the not-so-distant past. It can be very, very discouraging and disheartening to older people who know all too well what the journey was to this point... and how much farther so many folks still have to go in certain parts of this country. That's why, as a public service, we will be helping to educate everyone about our GAY HISTORY!

Here's a photo of a notorious drag performer from Cherry Grove, Fire Island circa 1940. His name originally was Robert Eselberger, from Ronkonkoma, the son of the famous delicatessen owners, Eselberger's Kosher Catering! But he gave up his place behind the counter and at the Board of Directors table, and became "Shishka-Bobbie", an interpretive dancer and fire juggler who performed mostly to Alice Faye and Patty page records; Bobbie's biggest numbers were "With My Eyes Wide Open, I'm Dreaming" and "Hello, Frisco! Hello"... sadly, it was discovered in 1956, that the shish kabobs she served to the audience during her musical numbers were local roadkill, and possibly even lost house pets... Shishka-Bobbie was arrested at the Matawan Melody Tent after the first act... Her parents moved from Ronkonkoma to Akron, changed their name to Hefflehoffer, and made a small fortune in the library paste industry.

Sybil Bruncheon's "MY MERRY MEMOIRS!"... chapter 11... Here, Kitty, Kitty!

SYBIL and detective cat.jpg

My little kitty, Professor Sniffkins, and I solved several shocking mysteries during my years at the Headley-Greers Academy for Disturbingly Precocious Young Persons. There was "The Graham Cracker Crusher Caper", "Another Felonious Frankfurter Horror", "The Afternoon Nap of No Return", and of course, Scotland Yard's favorite, "Nilly Natchet Took a Hatchet".

Professor Sniffkins and I were awarded the Marleybone Star of Meritorious Service to the Nation by his Gracious Majesty. Sadly, Sniffkins chewed the ribbons off of both them and dragged mine to a grate in the garden, never to be found again. And coincidentally, amethyst is my birthstone! DAMMIT!

Sybil Bruncheon's MORE THAN THEY SEEM STORIES... “Tasty"...

Barbecue Dog Bite.jpg

Uncle Herb was everyone's favorite. He'd come for a visit every Memorial Day weekend and stay for the following week. And it was always his delicious barbecues that brought the whole family together. Of course this Holiday weekend had started off more unhappily than any other when Mikey was bitten by Mrs. Kelly's dog. He'd always been a very mean dog, and Mikey had only been walking down Elco Drive when the dog ran out of nowhere and jumped him. Mikey even tried to be friendly and calm him down by petting him and saying his name, Fritzi... or was it Rocket? Mister Smiley?... Bumpo??... whatever. The dog first bit his hand and then tore his pants when he bit Mikey on the back of his thigh, right on the inside between his legs where it really hurt. But Uncle Herb always made everything alright. He was funny and wise, and helpful, and never had problems making decisions that fixed problems... just like on a TV show. And now, Uncle Herb had fixed it so the dog wouldn't bite anyone again... and he fixed Mrs. Kelly too.

Sybil Bruncheon's MORE THAN THEY SEEM STORIES... “A Pep Talk"...

Cheerleader.jpg

At Rockland State University, the school spirit ran very high! The academic standard was exceptional, rivaling even the more expensive and supposedly "exclusive" Eastern colleges, and its athletic teams regularly triumphed on the national stages in all sports. No one ever suspected in 1950 that there could be any scandals... or that there were subversive elements among the students and faculty. How could anyone guess that popular debutante Betty Lynn Frazier was a double agent for the KGB, and an expert in explosives and sabotage? And what about Professor Seymour Redkin, noted author of psychological texts and beloved children's books, and a master thief and forger of important government documents? There was Dr. Syms Frieborg, who had endowed the Surgical Chair in the Medical School from his family's fortune, and was an expert in interrogation and torture. And then there was his boyfriend, Biff Holloway, captain of the cheerleaders and a ruthless blackmailer who could use his sexual prowess with both sexes to compromise the highest diplomatic officials. Of course, no one found out about any of it till the four of them had left for the Riviera, and the Caribbean, for Paris, and Bali... and had lived happily for decades in security and luxury. Comfortable in their old age... without a care in the world...

Sybil Bruncheon's MORE THAN THEY SEEM STORIES... “Follow My Lead"...

1950s-cocktail-lounge-image.jpg

The Annual Country Club Dance was always scheduled for the last weekend before Labor Day, and all the members made a point of being there for the festivities, the raffles, auctions, and prize drawings. The elaborate banquet was catered by the very best company, and the orchestra was always booked from the city and cost a fortune, but no expense was ever spared. Everyone who mattered in the town's elite made a point to see and be seen by their rivals, business associates, competitors, neighbors and friends, and always at their very best. Maybe that was why Ken was so mortified. His wife Phyllis was a proverbial "trophy-wife". Educated at the very best schools both here and abroad, raised in a family of incredible wealth and culture, taste, breeding, wit, and beauty, Phyllis was everything any man could want and any woman could want to be... But why did she always insist on leading? Leading when they got to the dance floor? And why did everyone always have to giggle about it?... and point at Ken!... especially when his back was turned!!… and Phyllis was dipping him!!

Sybil Bruncheon's MORE THAN THEY SEEM STORIES... “A New Party Frock"...

The Party.jpg

... Jeanine was thrilled! She had gotten the promotion at the office, a bonus and raise, a corner office and two assistants, and all before the Christmas season, so shopping for friends, family, and herself was assured. And what did she do that very afternoon? She went to Saks Fifth Avenue to the designer floor where that beautiful violet cocktail dress was waiting for her. Nice Mrs. Fletcher, the manager, had set it aside right after Jeanine called and put it on her newly opened charge account. So here she was, dancing and celebrating, enjoying the martinis and champagne, the hors d'oeuvres and the caviar. She was having too much fun dancing with handsome Scott from the Advertising Department to notice that Bill, Cathy, and Craig were snickering over by the record player. Bill had just accidentally-on-purpose bumped into her from behind and wiped a huge streak of chocolate frosting on the derriére of her new dress... and oh, how the fun would really begin...

Sybil Bruncheon's MORE THAN THEY SEEM STORIES... “A Visit to A New Place"...

Zorina EdwinGeorgi_woman_l.jpg

... Zorina had traveled to so many different places and was always excited to meet new people. Finally, she decided to come to the United States. It seemed like it would be an amazing adventure in 1956. But she heard that Americans might be afraid of strangers, especially if they weren't white. She didn't know that that included Martians...
