Aretha Franklin rehearses steps with the legendary dancer and choreographer Charles “Cholly” Atkins at a dance studio in 1961. Mr. Atkins (1913-2003) created the iconic dance moves of The Temptations, Gladys Knight and the Pips and The Supremes’s famous “Stop! In the Name of Love” hand movement. The Alabama-born Mr. Atkins began his career as a vaudeville performer and was one half of the legendary dance duo Coles and Atkins with Honi Coles. In 1988, he shared a Tony Awards for choreographing the Broadway show, “Black and Blue.” Photo: Frank Driggs Collection/Getty Images.
my toilet has been broken for about a month and ive been manually flushing it with water from the tub. it took the 80 year old plumber about 8 hours of toil before he realized the tank had a crack in it and another three weeks for him or the landlord to do anything about it. so he came by today to take the tank to a store about half a mile away to get a replacement. the tank is not exactly light and considering he asked me to help him move the top of the tank a few weeks ago i assumed he would need help with the much heavier tank. so i offered but he repeatedly refused to accept my help although i did persuade him to let me carry it downstairs. god help him if he doesnt get a cab. meanwhile jewy mclandlord ask in all seriousness if instead of replacing the tank i could only fill it half way which wouldnt even solve the problem as the crack goes all the way to the bottom. this is maybe a hundred dollar part and the work is free as the plumber lives in the building at well below market value. im really starting to think hitler was on to something.
