I waited at the booth, long-haul sweat drying gently into my shirt. He held up his hand, waggling four fat fingers. This, I grasped after several seconds, was a demand for my passport. Because my mum realized after they named me that that would make me Lou Lizzy. And if you say that really fast it sounds like lunacy. The man looked at me for the first time.
He had solid shoulders and a gaze that could pin you like a Tazer. He did not smile. He waited until my own faded. He was studying something on his screen. I put my fingers on the little pad. And then my phone dinged. I went to tap an answer with my free hand but he turned sharply towards me.
She had taken to texting like a duck to water and could now do it faster than she could speak. Which was basically warp speed. Is that an SOS? He checked the address on my form, confirming it. I used to work for this man.

I was his companion, but I would also give him his meds and take him out and feed him. Well, we fell in love. I wiped my eyes briskly. Except for the love bit. I tried to smile. But I loved him. And he loved me. Well, he chose to end his life. So this is sort of my attempt to start over.
Must be the jetlag. I mean, I have a new boyfriend. When I looked up the man was holding out a box. I just ended up working in an airport. But I have a plan. Will always said I shut myself off from new experiences. So this is my plan. I need a zip code. I checked the number on the sheet that I had printed out and filled it in with trembling fingers.
I glanced to my left, where the queue at my section was growing restive. At the front of the next queue a Chinese family was being questioned by two officials.
As the woman protested, they were led into a side room. I felt suddenly very alone. The immigration officer peered at the people waiting.
And then, abruptly, he stamped my passport. I stared at him. I scanned the crowd, feeling oddly self-conscious, secretly convinced that nobody would come, but there he was, his huge hand waving above the shifting bodies around him.
He raised his other arm, a smile breaking across his face, and pushed his way through to meet me, picking me up off my feet in a gigantic hug. Not lost your dress sense, I see. I straightened my s tiger print dress. I had thought it might make me look like Jackie Kennedy, the Onassis Years. If Jackie Kennedy had spilled half her airline coffee on her lap.
The Prius is in for servicing so Mr G lent me his car. Nathan shut my cases into the boot and I settled into the passenger seat with a sigh. Just took you a while to find your way, is all.
Nathan turned on the radio and I listened to someone called Lorenzo talking about a baseball game and felt, briefly, as if I were in some kind of suspended reality. Anything you want to do? I thought I might let you sleep in, then drag you out to brunch. You should have the full NY diner experience on your first weekend here.
I thought about Sam, now fast asleep several thousand miles away in his railway carriage. I thought of Treena and Thom, tucked up in my little flat in London.
I shifted upright in my seat, dumbstruck as we sped towards it, the most famous metropolis on the planet. Bit grander than Stortfold. It was like the entrance to a grand, slightly faded hotel: It smelt of beeswax and polished shoes and money. He had a wide smile and eyes that looked like they had seen everything. I have a cousin in London. You anywhere near there? And when his face fell: Welcome to the Lavery.
You need anything, or you want to know anything, you just let me know. What have you been doing back in London? This, the Lavery, was a scaled down imitation of the famous Dakota building, Nathan told me, and was one of the oldest co- ops on the Upper East Side. Nobody could buy or sell an apartment here without the approval of a board of residents who were staunchly resistant to change. These apartments were passed down through generations; their inhabitants learnt to tolerate the s plumbing system, fought lengthy and labyrinthine battles for permission to alter anything more extensive than a light switch, and looked politely the other way as New York changed around them, just as one might ignore a beggar with a cardboard sign.
The newer or refurbished buildings had no staff quarters: But the Gopnik family had owned these tiny rooms since the building was first constructed. They could not be developed or sold, but were tied through deeds to the main residence, and lusted after as storage rooms. My room measured approximately twelve feet by twelve feet. It housed a double bed, a television, a chest of drawers and a wardrobe. A small armchair, upholstered in beige fabric, sat in the corner, its sagging seat testament to previous exhausted occupants.
A small window might have looked south. It was hard to tell, as it was approximately six feet from the blank brick rear of a building so tall that I could see the sky only if I pressed my face to the glass and craned my neck.
A communal kitchen sat nearby on the corridor, to be shared by me, Nathan, and a housekeeper, whose own room was across the corridor. On my bed sat a neat pile of five dark-green polo shirts and what looked like black trousers, bearing a cheap Teflon sheen.
The Gopniks think a uniform makes it simpler. Everyone knows where they stand. It housed a loo, a small basin that looked like it dated from the s and a shower. A paper-wrapped soap and a can of cockroach killer sat on the side.
I turned to him, my voice suddenly shaky.
I woke with a start at four forty-five a. For a few discombobulating minutes I was confused by the distant sound of an unfamiliar siren, the low whine of a reversing truck, then flicked on the light switch, remembered where I was, and a jolt of excitement whipped through me. I pulled my laptop from my bag and tapped out a chat message to Sam. But the unfamiliar sounds of the city were a siren call, and at six I climbed out of bed and showered, trying to ignore the rust in the sputtering water that exploded out of the shower head.
I dressed denim pinafore sundress and a vintage turquoise short-sleeved blouse with a picture of the Statue of Liberty and went in search of coffee. I padded along the corridor, trying to remember the location of the staff kitchen that Nathan had shown me the previous evening. I opened a door and a woman turned and stared at me. She was middle-aged and stocky, her hair set in neat dark waves, like a s movie star. Her eyes were beautiful and dark but her mouth dragged down at the edges, as if in permanent disapproval.
Oh, come on, I willed myself. My brain is like porridge this morning. A good draw will aid his cause. In the second race Olofberg disappointed over course and distance on Saturday but is better than that and can be given another chance. Orapa looked to have plenty of promise early in his career and stayed on last time over course and distance to be beaten 1,95 lengths by Aurora Australis.
He is now 2kg better off with the latter so there will be little in it. In the first leg of the PA Nimcha, Flapjack and Wild Fire are the form horses and can all be included in a PA which is not going to cost a lot to play. Silver Thursday is 8kg better off than any other horse in the fourth and can be made a PA banker although she could still need it and Invincible Lady and Gottalottaluv can be included in the Pick 6.
The latter has always struck as one who has possessed some class but would need time. She did well in first time blinkers last time and can rise above her current 70 merit rating, which puts her a whopping 12kg out with Silver Thursday here.
In the first leg of the Jackpot Throng was highly tried last season and has his third run after a rest off just a 79 merit rating over a suitable m trip. Hakeem cracks a good draw for a change so will go close and Major Return is on the up and can also be included. In the sixth race Oravar looks to have promise and the blinkers will aid him in his step back down to m. He is a PA banker but Whorly Whorly could pop up one of these days and should be included and so can Brigtnumberten, who has speed and is interesting in his second run after gelding.
In the eighth race Running Brave is relatively well weighted and despite this m trip being too sharp her class can pull her through. Made In Hollywood is comfortably best in at the weights so must be included despite a poor Highveld debut.
On her best Cape Town form she would doddle this. Ouro is consistent and can also be included. The last race is the toughest of the exotic legs. Mouth Keith, Cumberland and Certifiable all have high draws which are often advantageous over this m trip and they should all be included in the PA. However, going as wide as possible is the advice for the Pick 6. By David Thiselton Vase comes back in form Published: Vase returns from a lengthy break but comes from a very much in form stable and looks the part in the card opener on the Greyville poly tonight.
Louis Goosen Nel also has a knack of sending up horses to KZN that are well suited to the synthetic surface and Vase was not too far back to the well performed Ryker in her barrier trial. Likely danger is Wishful Words, who was much improved with a tongue-tie last start and has come to hand nicely.
His mother, Gertrude Gelienwas a German Catholic immigrant. His father, Charles Kelm, was Jewish. He was the younger of two boys. His brother, Walter John Gelien born August 18,was killed in Vietnam on October 28,leaving seven children. He was one of the last actors to be put under exclusive contract at Warner Bros. James Dean at age 21 b: Dean frequently waited beside Hunter's studio lot portable dressing room trailer, sitting on the step-up, catching Hunter between his film set-up shots to talk, to learn about, to discuss Tab's film experiences, acting challenges on film-movie studio and location sets!.
During a verbal contest to re-name "Art Gilien," Art, sitting between his actor-agent friend Dick Clayton and talent agent Henry Willson, the pair of agents trying to come up with a re-branding for Art Gilien's new show-biz name; a serious amused dead-pan Art interjected - "what about Male Kelm" into their name choice debate; ignoring Art, Henry Willson remarked: What are your interests, Art?
Upon being discharged from the U. During his absence serving in the U. Coast Guard, their mother had moved back to San Francisco. His boss, Charlie Feldman, one of the most respected agents in the film industry, and his colleagues encouraged Dick to become a sub-agent. Dick encouraged Art to pick up his education. Art enrolled in the Del Powers Professional School.
The school, just off Wilcox Avenue in Hollywood, was run by actress Mala Powers's mother and was crammed with kids who wanted to be in movies. Art graduated with a high school diploma. Art supported a new athletic course, figure skating, where he lived at the Polar Palace, an ice rink on Van Ness near Melrose in Hollywood. Besides horse training, Art began training to be a professional ice skater, gaining trophies on his ice-skating abilities and talents.
In this new endeavor, he met an entirely new group of people, who became his extended family of friends. Bob Turk, who became a choreographer, a director, and producer for the "Ice Capades;" Bobby Specht became an Ice Capades skating star; Joyce Lockwood, who became his skating partner in pairs; Catherine Machado and Richard Dwyer, both became stars on ice; the extraordinary Ronnie Robertson.
Art loved the athleticism of ice skating, the rigorous training, practicing figures and diligently skating through levels of tests, ranked in the nation's amateur standings. Art skated both singles and pairs. During this period, Art supported himself by employment at the Orange Julius stand across from Hollywood's Musso and Frank restaurant; ushered at the Warner Bros.
Theater on Hollywood Boulevard, making seventy-five cents an hour, where Art met a young girl named Carol Burnett, also working as an usher.
Dick Clayton kept hounding Art about taking an acting career seriously, except Art wanted to skate, not waste time in a stupid acting class. Then one day Dick brokered the introduction that radically changed his life.
Willson is more of a personal manager than an agent. Willson handles all aspects of a client's career: He represents the greatest-looking guys in town. But Willson's real attention was focused on his list of male clients, specifically young, good-looking, all-American guys.
Henry believed that young women craved a male equivalent of the pinup stars who'd boosted the troop's morale during the war. Acting skill was secondary to chiseled features and a fine physique.
Clayton was a nervous hen mother. People are always making jokes about Henry and his boys". Brother Walt was a young spirited adventurer, often initiating an interest in an active new experience. Walt joined a school marching band, and Art followed him by joining his new interest.
Walt performed in a school play, "The Wedding Shoes," that started Art thinking that maybe he could act, too. The greatest experience brother Walt ever did for his baby brother Art, however, was to introduce him to horses. The Du Brock's Riding Academy was a ramshackle old stable, located behind a huge green fountain that shot a geyser of water high into the air. Art was scared to death as they rented a pair of nags and headed out on the bridle path, onto the riding trails.
Art had chosen a western saddle so that he would have a horn to grab onto should he start to fall. Although Art didn't like riding at first, soon Walt and Art were starting every Saturday morning with a trip to Du Brock's stable; even having a favorite horse, Star, a plain bay with a white star on his forehead.
On the trail one day, Walt yelled to his brother, "If you want to gallop, just give him a kick. Star wouldn't go faster than a slow trot. That was the day Art fell in love with horses. Walt moved onto other interests, but Du Brock's became Art's home away from home. Now Art hoarded every penny so he could buy an extra half hour on horseback. Saturday mornings, he was up and out by six, hitchhiking to the barn. Soon, he was spending all his Saturdays there, doing chores for the grooms, Slim and Tommy.
He would trade labor for riding time - mucking out stalls, cleaning tack, feeding horses, stacking hay-bales, anything to be with the horses. First, Art joined a regularly scheduled riding class. Griffith Park's bridle trails followed the Los Angeles River, riding the river bottom into the valley, right past Warner Bros. Studio, all the way out to Republic Pictures.
Meet Me On The Corner – Lindisfarne
Art would gallop through Ace Hudkins' sprawling ranch, jumping his horse Smiling Joe over fences and hedges, while his mother's endless cliches bounced through his head: The film studios did lots of business with Du Brock's, and photographers often came by to shoot still photo layouts for movie magazines. Art would gawk from the sidelines as some beautiful young actress would stand on a mounting block, slip her leg over the saddle, and smile for the still camera.
Art noticed a lot of these girls being escorted by the same guy, a charming Irish fellow who also was a regular at Du Brock's and a pretty good rider as well.
Overhearing someone say that he was an actor, Dick Clayton, who preferred Irish Lad as his preferred horse.
One day, Dick Clayton showed up with actress Ann Blyth and a photographer in tow. In the middle of the photo session, the actor spotted Art grappling with a pitchfork of manure. You must live here. You're here every time I show up. You got the look for it. How could he have known he'd end up being the most important person in his life?. Inhis mother a German Catholic, at the age of sixteen, the eldest daughter of John and Ida Gelien from Hamburg, was brought to the United States with her parents and three siblings, aboard the United States ship George Washington.
Her father, John Gelien, known simply as Opa the traditional German term of endearment for a grandfatherwas a chef for the steamship company. Forever away at sea, Opa was like a phantom within his own family. The family settled in New York City upon arrival in the States. Gertrude Gelien, afterwards, married Charles Kelm, who was Jewish, in This was Charles Kelm's second marriage.
Their first child, born on August 18, was named Walter John; their second child, born on July 11,was named Arthur Andrew. During their marriage, family life was financially difficult, the father an alcoholic, an abusive husband who beat his wife Gertrude frequently after returning home from his daily work-job; after dinner, often returning to his local neighborhood whiskey speak-easy bar. Gertrude's German father Opa, learning of the abuse, orchestrated Gertrude with her two sons escape on a steam ship bound west, as far away from Charles Kelm as possible - the brothers and mother to the opposite end of the country, San Francisco, California, the Promised Land.
Using his connections Opa got their mother Gertrude a job as a ship-board stewardess with the Matson Lines, for which he now worked. He found a San Francisco apartment for the family and covered the first two months' rent. Gertrude reclaimed her family surname Gelien and changed her sons' name to that, as well. Almost immediately, the relationship Walt and Art had with their mother started to mirror what Gertrude experienced with her own father. The brothers would not see their mother for weeks at a time, as she went to sea to earn her salary.
A single mother trying to raise two boys during the depths of the Depression. The brothers lived in a a rented room in Mrs. Kelson's Divisadero Street apartment. Eager to better their station, Gertrude studied in her spare time to be a nurse, with a specialty in physical therapy. The bump in pay allowed her to enroll Walt and Art in a private school.
Barely school age, the brothers had adventures straight out of Tom Sawyer. In the cramped elevator of a hotel on Mason Street, their mother introduced the boys to Harry Koster.
