Just learned on FB, that David Simpson has succumbed to ALS. He died yesterday. His friends and family thanked all of us for our prayers. Here's a blog post - and poem - I wrote about him in Feb of this year.
David's twin brother Dan Simpson wrote a blog post about his beloved brother.
It was Scott who inspired me to put up decorations. We're both Jewish but consider Xmas a national holiday. We keep the "Christ" out of Christmas, but Brother Thomas O'Riley - now, just plain Tommy - in my novel feels differently.
I'm working on Chapter Fourteen. Hard to motivate myself but I just sit myself down and use a few cups of decaf as a placebo.
For years I've been trying to sell this art book. My cuz Mark Greenwold had a show at D C Moore Gallery in NYC and I'm asking all of $25 for the book.

David Remnick,editor of the New Yorker Magazine. He's very thorough and is telling us about the history of leaders in Africa.
Gonna put a note on the door in case the buyer comes for the screen. Gotta high-tail it to the library for the movie Phoenix.
Scott and I will nap to it later today. It was the wrong film. From the first frame, it was terrible and got worser and worser. I switched to the Channel 12 News, which featured an expose on how leaders of Nigeria and other African nations embezzle money from the people.
Forgot to mention I bought a new digital camera at Larmon Photo in Abington. How dyou like the pictures?
