A few years ago, a designer walked up to Rick Aronhalt's 100-square-foot booth in Baltimore's Avenue Antiques at 36th and Elm streets in Hampden. At the time, Aronhalt was selling a broad spectrum of antique pieces but toyed with the idea of specializing in midcentury modern furnishings. On a hunch, he had a pair of kitschy lamps with fiberglass shades for sale. "The designer came in, unscrewed the lamp shades and purchased them for the full price, leaving the [bases of] the lamps sitting there," he recalls.

Every now and then the WWE has a legend return, for various reasons. Sometimes it could be to get a simple pop, or ratings. Sometimes it can make sense in a storyline. Other times, it can be to put young talent over. On Monday night, the WWE did the last of these, using Ric Flair to give a rub to The Shield, despite his previous Evolution ties. When it was announced on Twitter that Ric Flair would be coming back on Raw, it was assumed it would be part of the Evolution storyline.

So much for deep thinking. That was my initial reaction when a cast full of flappers, goldfish swallowers, cheerleaders and leather-helmeted football players took the Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre stage Saturday evening to kick off Good News, the musical romp from the Roaring Twenties that will be the ensemble's final production of the year. In June, Summer Garden's take on Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods had us pondering the not-so-happy aftershocks of "happily ever after" endings: alienation, blame, fitful relationships and the flair with which we parents pass along our inner demons to our children.

The return of Mr. McMahon to Raw on Monday spiked the ratings. The show did a 3.9 (including a 4.1 for the second hour), which was up from last week's 3.5 and is the best number Raw has done since the Ric Flair farewell episode did a 3.9 on March 31. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/ringposts)

Fast times, the breaking of a 19-year-old track record, some large payoffs and a long-shot winner of the Park Heights Handicap marked the return of live racing yesterday to Pimlico Race Course.The track was so fast -- too fast and hard, according to some people -- that claimers were running six furlongs in 1 minute, 10 seconds and change, a couple of seconds faster than the norm. A 2-year-old filly, Season's Flair, shaved two-fifths of a second off the 5 1/2 -furlong mark of 1 minute, 4 seconds set by ultra-quick Luck Penny in 1976.

Sunday's musical attractions included the 79th annual performance of Handel's "Messiah" by a choir named for the composer, plus a chamber music program presented by the Shriver Hall Concert Series. A few words on each. The choir seems to be in fine shape. It maintained a well-balanced sound and articulated with admirable clarity during a matinee at Towson Presbyterian Church, led by the ensemble's new artistic director and conductor of the Handel Choir of Baltimore, Arian Khaefi.

During the golden age of Major Indoor Soccer League in the 1980s, the game featured players who dazzled fans with their nifty footwork, creativity and individual skills. Blast veteran forward Adauto Neto showed similar form Friday night against the visiting Missouri Comets. In the second quarter, he tied the game with a side-winding, half-volley from deep in the right corner that found the top of the net. With the game still tied in the third quarter and the Blast on a power play, Neto's perfectly timed backheel pass in tight quarters found a streaking Lucio Gonzaga, who scored to give the home team its first lead.

When 302 Glenrae Drive in the heart of Old Catonsville went on the market March 27, 2013, it didn't remain there long. Only three days, in fact. The Bob & Ronna Team of Long & Foster Realtors brought a potential buyer to see the home on that very day, and a bid was placed immediately. "Not only that, it listed and sold at the same price — $425, 000," Ronna Corman-Chew said. "This is an incredible, completely remodeled three-bed and two-bath split-level with a retro flair," Bob Chew said.

For years, Tio Pepe was my family's special-occasion restaurant. This was the mid-1970s, when the Franklin Street restaurant, which opened in 1968, was already established as a Baltimore classic. Even then, Tio Pepe seemed as if it had been around forever, and Baltimore spoke of it in absolute terms. Some of those absolutes no longer apply. Tio Pepe is no longer the most expensive meal in town. It's certainly no bargain — figure about $75 a person — but other restaurants that have much less to offer have caught up. A Tio Pepe dinner, though, still feels like a luxury item, bathed in drawn butter, covered with hollandaise, flavored with brandy, and layered with cream and rolled in pine nuts.

Most people, unless headed to a specific address, will simply drive past the two-story row houses that line the curb along Fleet Street in East Baltimore. Few are wider than 15 feet; their only mark of individuality is usually found in the variety of front doors. Many of these houses, dating to 1910, are examples of exterior brick restoration, while others still bask in the Formstone glory of 1940's exterior home improvement. Alex Dyadyura, a computer programmer with Johns Hopkins Community Physicians, purchased one of these houses less than a year ago. Secure in his position after almost three years of service, the time was ripe for moving from his rented house in Patterson Park.

The melody is instantly familiar but the other sounds are not - horns boldly announce their arrival, the patient tempo crawls along and the voice is more Maryland than Liverpool. When the plea to stay kicks in - "Believe me when I beg you, don't ever leave me alone," he sings - the song's identity becomes clear. It's "Oh! Darling," the Lennon/McCartney classic, but this bouncing version comes courtesy of Yellow Dubmarine, a Rockville eight-piece that plays reggae versions of Beatles songs.

Pro wrestling legend Ric Flair was at Fenway Park on Tuesday night to meet with Dustin Pedroia and the Red Sox . Our Dan Connolly reported that a couple of Orioles players got a kick out of meeting him , too. The play did not pay off for Boston, though, as "the Nature Boy" was unable to "WOOO!" the Red Sox past the feisty Orioles . However, Flair delivered when he emphatically introduced the Red Sox on NESN before the game (while holding a championship belt, of course)
