Momberg for Prez

I've decided to run for President.

Don't worry. I'm not going to win, and even if some miracle I did ...and I survive being struck 5 times by lightning ... I probably won't serve. I just want to walk around with the hair for a while: The Trump hair.

By the way, I DO have a campaign platform that I will promise to achieve. It's simpler and much better than Donald's or Hillary's or Bernie "Larry David" Sander's. It's better because it is what people really want, and let's face it ... if they don't I really don't care because it's what I want (works for The Donald right?):

1. I will do nothing Presidential.

That's right. Be not afraid voters, I know that I have no idea how to run a country. I know nothing about all the intricacies of foreign policy. And I can't fathom how to get the House and Senate to play nice.

So ... unlike these other candidates who have all the answers and will undoubtedly make things worse, I'm willing to let the people who head up the military and the House and the Senate and the foreign service do their thing. What's the worst thing that can happen? They screw it up?

2. I won't live in the White House.

Are you kidding? All those people who come in and out all day checking out your office and your bedroom and steal silver and try on your underwear? OH YES THEY DO. It's just not reported.

No way, I'd live on some cool island. We have the internet, people. And cell phones. If somebody blows somebody up or Donald shoots a voter on Park Avenue ... nobody cares. Anyway, I can call the whole world on the telephone and they will take my call. I'm the President.

3.  I will only meet with people that have a brain or I like.

Life is too short to hang out with people you don't like. Those people will still do whatever they want whether they meet with me or not. Smart people are more interesting and because I'm President, I automatically fall into that category whether I'm interesting or not. So ... I could call Billy Joel and ask him to show me couple of licks on the piano. Or I could have Peyton Manning come over to play catch. Or I could host SNL. Or I could have dinner with Kate Upton or Sophia Vagara ... I'm sure both are great conversationalists. Debbie? She won't mind ... she'll be dining with George Clooney and Brad Pitt.

Know what? Maybe this President gig isn't too bad. And then when you serve your term and  become a former president you are suddenly much more popular and wealthy than when you took office. Crazy huh?

All I need is a billion dollars to start ... anybody know how I can reach Michael Bloomberg?

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…
