Facebook Fugitive Strikes! Finally!

Posted on February 2, 2020 at 5:25 AM Comments comments (0)

I can’t believe I’m here. Only because I’m stubborn and I had an attack of guilt, realizing that so much needs updating.


We’re plugging along.


I have no excuses. Just the reality of seventy-nine-and-a-half years on the planet and finally coming to grips with the fact that age is what your body makes of it. Goulash.


I’ve played in Facebook, instead of coming here, because I was tired of the learning curve ...

A Year Ago November 15

Posted on November 20, 2017 at 1:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Facebook reminded me last Wednesday that it’s been a year.

Dealing with this web site became so frustrating that I’ve been sharing me on Facebook, instead of paying attention to these pages. No point in going through the litany of experiences. Instead, I’ve pretty much decided that, if I can’t let the people who have signed on here as Members know when there’s an update without jumping though hoops I haven’t time for, I’...

Another Surprise

Posted on January 11, 2017 at 4:25 PM Comments comments (2)

At 9 a.m. today, I was in the dentist’s chair with my mouth open, chock full of his hand and dental equipment. Repairing a bridge.


Doing fine. No pain. Then realized I recognized what was playing over the sound system. It was so quiet. I knew that song, couldn’t place it.


Unexpectedly my eyes started to fill. I couldn’t believe it. “Id dat duh Munkees?” I asked, the moment his hand pulled away from my vanished molars.

2017 - The First Surprise

Posted on January 10, 2017 at 3:10 PM Comments comments (3)

Happy New Year!

All of the things I intended to share with you went out the window, this morning; instead of hearing about my health (always fascinating to no one, including me) and why there's no report on the doings in Denver, I'm sitting here waiting for the phone to ring, sincerely praying I am not in the process of making a fool of myself. Here's the reason:

Just before the holiday, I sat down to write a letter to the President-Elect of these stunned U...

Denver's Coming Up!

Posted on September 13, 2016 at 4:50 AM Comments comments (0)

The Richard III Society American Branch is having its (as of this year) biennial General Membership Meeting in Denver the weekend of September 24-25 and I'm going to be there, finally getting to meet people I've "known" for years!

I'll also be available to sign books. To allow us to fill our carry-ons with fresh underwear and other civilized essentials, we can ship books ahead. This presents an interesting challenge for those of us who do not want to have to heave overboard ...

And Saying Goodbye to Dad

Posted on August 18, 2016 at 3:15 AM Comments comments (5)

Life. There's no way to catch up with it here. It's been challenging.

In June, we started recording KING'S GAMES The Commentaries, which has been an experience because David's got first dibs on the booth - with 80+ books to his  credit, he's in there from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. (there's a whole horror story about working in recorded books in the San Fernando Valley: nothing can happen when planes fly over...

Catching Up! (Tip of the Iceberg)

Posted on February 23, 2016 at 2:55 AM Comments comments (0)


It was three in the morning on Boxing Day. Having straighten up the kitchen sufficiently to prevent hungry cat raids, we were falling into bed when I realized I had the high scratching at the back of my throat that signals coming down with a cold.


I thought I had escaped the cold David had recovered from, in time for Christmas.


I not only had it, but a day later, he had it again. The Great Revolving Christmas Yuck cycled through each of us t...

The Christmas Dash

Posted on December 19, 2015 at 2:55 AM Comments comments (1)

There's no time for anything but preparing for the holiday - I get a little crazy, around here. If it's not moving, it gets decorated. If it moves, it gets hugged. The cards are going to be later than usual, this year, because I'm creating it myself and I am a very ambitious and a very novice at Photoshop. Never mind, it's coming together. My health seems to be improving - I'm sleeping longer and starting to dream, again - and have much more energy than at the first of the year. This is just ...

Christmas is Coming!

Lots going on around here - a Book Signing on Saturday with friends from the California Writers Club-San Fernando Valley Branch (have lunch next door at Maggiano's or the Corner Bakery, and stop by!).  If you already own one of my books, bring it along and I'll be happy to sign it, too!

What's Happening

Posted on July 10, 2015 at 9:55 PM Comments comments (1)

In between gearing up for August 25th, I just submitted the play script of KING'S GAMES A Memoir of Richard III to two of the most prestigious theatre companies in the U.S. One announces the results in October and the other next June. (It's a book, now, but the criteria is "not yet presented as a full production.") Good thoughts and other positive energies gratefully accepted.

Meanwhile . . . somebody's hawking it on Amazon at $24.54 higher than the listed price. Which isn't a ba...
