Message from Cole

Hi ... it's Cole.

I was sure that you were all missing me and I had a few minutes between takes. (My mom takes my picture every half hour ... SO embarrassing. Especially the naked shots which I will not publish here). Anyway ...

If you look closely at this black and white head shot, you'll see that I have a tiny scratch on my right cheek. Yes, it's from shaving. I have a terrible time getting rid of my five o'clock shadow. It's a safety razor (hah! not safe enough for babies apparently).

Speaking of safety, here's an interesting shot of me trying to take off the safety caps from the electrical outlet.

They think I can't do it yet so everyone just lets me pretend. Just cause I'm a little pudgy does not mean I am not athletic.

Obviously I can stand and walk now. If my Papa wasn't so dumb when it comes to video downloads, he'd show you here but he hasn't quite figured out how to do that yet.

Went shopping for my first pair of shoes last week. What do you think?  Yeah, they had my size in length but there's a lot of work to do on the instep. 

The cankle stage has me a little concerned. I know I'll grow out of it ... I hope I do ... but I kinda enjoy the girls giggling when I walk by.

Fortunately, my mom has not stopped feeding me.

I eat just about every 45 minutes now. Even in the middle of the night, I might scream a little just to get a bottle. 

It works well.

SAMMY: The Novel (An Overview)

I finished writing Sammy:The Novel. 

So ... I called my good buddy and excellent writer, Dave Scheiber, to help me write an overview to pique the interest of publishers. The stuff that Dave wrote made me want to read my own book! We combined our efforts and here's what we came up with:

SAMMY (An Overview)

Sammy Levine, 86-year-old resident of Star of David nursing home, was not happy with his daily existence and dreamed of taking one last trip with his wife Esther (presently residing in an urn on the third shelf in his room). Sammy was careful about not exposing his plan to anyone, especially his son, Barry, who dutifully visited regularly and tried to make sure that he lived out his remaining days comfortably.

Through a carefully choreographed plan, Sammy managed to access personal information on three recently deceased residents from the nursing home’s computers. Then he applied for and obtained three new credit cards. Armed now with available cash and credit, he loaded up Esth…

Close Call

I was just putting the finishing touches on my new novel, Sammy, which will be available to order in November (shameless self promotion!) ... when I started thinking about some of the characters in my past life. One character I've actually written about in the past just popped into my head. It's a repeat story but I hope you enjoy it ... again.

When I was a Freshman at LSU, our dorm was set up like a suite with two adjoining double rooms and a common kitchen and living room. "Suite" really makes it sound much fancier than it was. Actually, living room makes it sound much fancier than it was. The walls were cinder block and the living room was about 100 square feet. I don't think four of us could even stand up in there at one time.

One of the four guys in our suite was the place kicker for the LSU Tigers. His name was Phil and he was from Bogalusa, Louisiana. He had the bed next to mine. Phil was about 6'8" and weighed well over 300 pounds. He was a big …

Princess Grace's Diary

We surprised our little princess, Grace on Friday with a last minute visit to Savannah. She and her BFF Stella had a joint princess birthday party.

It was of course no surprise to Deb and me that the trip had a few surprises for us, too.

It started out with a light show at the airport (we chose to fly rather than drive the 12 hours back and forth for one day). Lightning strikes were coming fast ... so the tarmac was closed until it settled down. We had to get to Atlanta in time to catch what had become the LAST flight of the night to Savannah at 11:20 PM.

We made it ... barely ... and fell asleep at 2 AM.

Up at 8 and out the door via Uber to The Landings (a mere 45 minute drive) and just in time to see this adorable duo.

Big brother Cole was  one of the "hosts".

Pony rides were there for the guests.

Matching Princess cakes (of course).

Lots of fun.

At about 2, Deb and I headed back to the airport with Nikki driving and made it in PLENTY of time to find out that there were n…
