THE SPIRIT IS STILL WILLING BUT THE FLESH IS BONE-TIRED

I remember vividly the day I officially became a feminist. It was in 1971, in England, after two years of travel during which not a breath of what had been happening among women in North America had reached me. But in London a woman friend shoved into my hands a stack of papers that had been mailed to her from a feminist friend in California, and said: read this.

TELL US THAT YOU LOVE US, ELVIS P.

Elvis. Elvis is coming. Elvis Presley is going to be singing, live, in person, in the flesh, not in Nashville or Vegas or Hollywood but just across the border in Niagara Falls, New York, and I, a humble adorer since I saw him sing Blue Suede Shoes on the Dorsey show 20 years ago, I am being offered a ticket.

THE LATE, GREAT PAIR OF JEANS

I have a friend who spent three successive weekends washing out her jeans. Not that they were dirty, you understand. They were brand new, with the $22 price tag still attached. But as anybody with the slightest sense of radical chic these days knows, there is only one thing more gauche than spiffy, stiff-as-board, unfaded, unlived-in and generally unadulterated blue denim and that is being caught out at the wrong time wearing no blue denim at all.

TIMES ARE HARD FOR WOODBINE BILLY

Prove It Su has apparently just nipped Brief Storm at the wire, and' a fat little man in the crowd announces: “Brief Storm beat her.” Woodbine Billy looks sharply at the man and says: “Don’t be silly. The six horse win,” and the crowd — waiting for the picture to flash on closed circuit television — murmurs agreement.

MISTER STEWART GOES TO WASHINGTON

We wheeled the car out of Cooper Street and south along the Driveway, beside the Rideau Canal, past the carefully tended flower gardens of the National Capital Commission, past the even-more-carefully tended bureaucrats, marching memo-laden back to work after the lunch break, past couples disporting themselves on the greensward, and young mothers rolling their kids out for sunshine and compliments, past, in a word, the mixed panorama of central Ottawa on a summer’s day.
