    I went to the Local DMV branch to renew my ID. It was a relatively painless process. Was in and out in about 40 minutes. After that, I was in a grocery store and ran into 2 of my high school coaches. It was great to see them after almost 30 years

    The last time I was at the DMV I was shocked at how quickly it went. And the customer service was really good as well. I thought I was in The Twilight Zone.

    My most recent vintage paper acquisition to date from EBay: the Thurs. Jan. 17, 1991 edition of the Long Island paper Newsday (only 40 cents then for 160 pages of the works); cover story was about the War In Iraq (I paid $14 for it from EBay)...

    newsday1. newsday2.

    I was finally able to order the new 2019 paperback edition of Randy Skretvedt’s LAUREL AND HARDY: THE MAGIC BEHIND THE MOVIES, as a late Birthday present to myself. Since Randy Skretvedt first announced that he was working on a third edition of the above title way back in the late '00s, I've been longing to snag a copy of this! That I also ended up contributing a very minor tidbit of information relating to one of Laurel and Hardy's short subjects doesn't hurt, either! :)

    CHEERS! :)

    Also, I even managed to finagle a credit in the "Preface To The 2016 Edition" chapter (Mercifully highlighted to avoid a "Where's Waldo?" searching scenario! ;) )! Thanks, Randy! :)

    Laurel And Hardy Magic Behind The Movies (2019 Paperback) - Preface 2016 Edition - Credits.

    I greatly look forward to many hours of reading and source checking pleasure!

    CHEERS! :)

    They're back today. Six of them. Several young ones, too, likely last year's fawns.

    One of the smaller ones keeps coming close to the building, then every time someone exits by the back door he runs back up to the rest of the group, then works his way back toward the building again until the next person exits. Funny!

    I am actually trying to move back to Florida. I arrived this past weekend and had an initial interview Monday. I have what I hope is a final interview this Friday. They also have already advised me when training begins and the schedule.

    Congrats. Best wishes for your return to FL.

    What pleases me is when I’m home with my living room theater cranked up, or when I’m behind the wheel of my pleasure ride (2015 Charger SXT).

    My first ever colonoscopy was this morning, for which I was pleasantly sedated throughout. The medical team even managed to redress me before I awoke!

    Best of all, nothing showed up in the results, so I'm good for another 10 years! :)

    CHEERS! :)

    I know you were stressing over that so I'm glad everything turned out okay.

    Something I had last night that pleased me-- a Sunday paper from Honolulu, HI (date of it was June 2, 2019), and a cup of English Breakfast decaf hot tea (and this is my first-ever Sunday paper from Honolulu; I received it from my brother last night; also includes what a section front looks like from that Hawaiian paper)...
