Also, several school kids my daughters’ knew who have kind of run-amuck. People that I’ve had relationships with, as well as a former girlfriend’s daughter, has shown up, too.

When I lived in L.A., he once wandered into a Denny’s in Calabasas wearing his pajamas during the breakfast hour. Bummer. I always liked him as an actor–Rich Man/Poor Man. And my all time fav, Canary Row.
I’m nearing the end of my book, I only have one chapter left to write. After that, I plan on reading some novels and not just arrest records.
