MODESTY IS VERY BECOMING… (and it’s becoming quite rare) I’m not that modest. Every year, on my birthday, I send my mother a “congratulations card” for having me. I just installed mirrors in my bedroom. (no, not for that reason!) To look at myself. Does that “reflect” badly on me? Well, today’s blog will not focus on me, but on my loyal blog followers! (who I love)
Last weekend, we Austinites lost Steven Fromholz, one of the true legends of the outlaw country era. Steve was a major talent, and he also served as the Poet Laureate of Texas. I’m friends with his sweet daughter, Felicity, and my heart goes out to her and her family. Your Dad was one of the great ones.
We also lost Mrs. Alice Bonefield, a gentle spirit, the mother of Paula Johnston. “Miss Alice” was one of my favorite ladies and she will truly be missed by everyone who knew her. She was, as they say, a class act.
I would like to extend my best wishes to Mrs. Donna Simon, who is recovering from a heart attack. Donna and I are old friends, and she worked for Yanoff & Company for many years. In fact, she was the manager of our Chicago office. We (the Yanoff clan) wish you a speedy recovery! You did a great job for us and we all love you! (Miss Hazel told me to send you a special kiss!)
Speaking of speedy recoveries….. If you’re ever in need of emergency care, you should limp on over to the Texan Urgent Care facility in Riverplace. Hopefully, you will be seen by Cindy Kelt, FNP-BC (I have no idea what those letters mean, but Cindy is a brilliant and caring nurse practitioner!) Tell her that I sent you and you will receive a free enema. (Let me know how that comes out!) We adore you, Cindy!
I’d like to give a big “shout out” to my friend Steven B. who is back in Iraq doing who-knows-what. I hope you and your buddies are safe and sound, and we wish you a speedy return to the good old U.S.A. Be careful if somebody offers you a camel. (It might not be a cigarette!)
For you book lovers out there, please note that BookPeople has just restocked their shelves with 18 copies of my various mystery novels. (The first group sold quickly.) As you might guess, the books are to be found in the “mystery section” up front. (Makes sense to me)
Finally, remember the secret of enjoying a good wine….. Open the bottle and allow it to breathe….. If it doesn’t seem to be breathing….. Give it mouth to mouth! (The preceding humor courtesy of C.T. Nickles.) C.T. is the head of my New Jersey humor division, and let’s face it, you have to have a sense of humor to live in New Jersey!
Have a safe and prosperous week! Love to all,
P.S. My “big announcement” will be posted next week. This blog is for my wonderful followers!
