NOT because I am taking on surfing as my next hobby. No, I bought the outfit so that I will not be so cold in the fall when I continue to exercise in the water. The lifeguards told me a rash guard will keep me warm and since I am up to doing 50 minutes of exercises in the pool, I want to maintain my ability if I can. My husband said I look “hot.” Let’s remember that he is in his mid 70s and is living in his imagination!
Thank you – whomever you are – for purchasing and reading my book. If you have had a difficult life, were married, divorced, remarried, if you have now have grandkids, and you are still laughing – you will relate to the story of my life! 18 % of sales goes to Memorial Sloan Kettering for keeping me alive!
I just got booked to do a book talk (no pun intended) two more times – both in Great Neck. Will post details as it gets closer.
Kudos to NYC for really teaching. My grandson just “graduated” from kindergarten. This is a ceramic piece he made after learning about Wayne Thiebaud, his favorite artist. Of course that was a month ago. Now his favorite artist is Jim Dine. I can talk to him about Picasso and Leger and O’Keefe and the list goes on.
For graduation, he told me, his class was going to sing “It’s a Wonderful World,” by Louis Armstrong. Yes, he knew who wrote the song and he knew some history about Armstrong.
His music teacher encouraged him to learn piano and so he is. And he practices 10 minutes everyday.
THANK YOU NYC for doing your job in educating my grandson. THERE ARE NO TEACHERS LIKE NYC PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS once the city makes up its mind to do the job!
From one teacher to all of you, THANK YOU!!!!!
I have met more interesting people in the past 6 months since I published my book! The author of this book, Sylvie Heyman comes from my hometown and we share a lot in common. So, here is to another fringe benefit of publishing!
I “met” author of Bandstand Diaries, Sharon Sultan Cutler, on linked-in. We were on the phone for an hour and found out we have much in common. If you have any BANDSTAND fans, check out her book which is loaded with photos. Of course we exchanged books!
