My Memorial

My Memorial

Today is Memorial Day, and I have someone to remember, as I have every year since 2009. His name is Roger Cobb Hallberg, and his name was on the POW bracelet I wore as a teenager. While I was dating and going to Disneyland, he was fighting, and then disappearing, in the jungle maze of Vietnam. A brave young newlywed just vanished. For years I waited and watched lists of returning vets to see his name. Twice I have visited the Vietnam Memorial in Washington. At the long black wall I find his name and see his status. MIA. He is one of 1643 soldiers still unaccounted for in that conflict (this...

A Year Ago, Today. Or “How to Tend to a Sick Artist”

Last March 3 I endured a nine hour open heart surgery that was a big whopper of a surprise to everyone in my life. I had a 9cm aneurysm in the ascending aorta of my heart, and there was no other way to keep me alive. Two funny people we know died of this exact same situation: Lucille Ball and John Ritter. I like to think its somehow a comic’s condition. I love Mark Twain and remember reading “The Innocents Abroad” the year I lived in Florence, Italy. He made lists in that book, measurements and tallies that illustrated his points. Here is my Mark Twain list for My Event of...

Sweet February

Well it is that time again, for me to giveaway goodies to celebrate all of you out there. This month I am fixating on Gypsies. When I lived in Florence, Italy, there was a large group of Gypsies (that is what we were told they were called, forgive me if I am incorrect) who were in throngs around the center of the city. Tiny colorfully dressed girls that wore aprons had kittens on leashes and would play accordions for money. I was intrigued, as I am with nomadic peoples of all kinds. And a gypsy wagon, well, who does not want to head off into the sunset in one of those? Two bookmakers I know...
