Fresh Eyes, Please

Over the past few months, I’ve looked at a certain front and back book cover proof at least eight times, including this morning, right before final prep for press. This afternoon, I thought, Well………….I better read it one more time. So I read it again, from the bottom up this time, one line at a time, right to left. Found a total boo-boo. There is no such proper thing as an “Ocular Mobility Examination.” It’s “Ocular Motility Examination.” I really would have given myself a heart attack if I hadn’t spotted that one until way too late. Reminds me of the time someone, NOT ME, who ran with a story about mass transit for an internal company newsletter going to many thousands of people.  Unfortunately, she didn’t spot the typo, “The Glories of Pubic Transit.”  Measure twice, cut once. Make that thrice.

Try This at the Theater

Ann and I went to the City Arts Lecture in San Francisco last night, featuring a discussion between Karl Ove Knausgård and Daniel Handler. Seats were in the stratosphere, but I arrived early at Will Call. "Any orchestra seats to exchange," I mumbled. SCORE!!! We ended up in row C, middle, about 20 feet away, making body language so much more fun to observe. Stay tuned for a radio broadcast on KQED-FM (88.5) radio by the end of May and review for yourself.

All I want for Xmas

All I want for Xmas Is my pink princess phone, like this one. I think it’s somewhere in the garage, along with a giant box of 60-year old baby shoes.

Happy b-day , Thomas William Torgerson

Thomas William Torgerson, aka Dad, September 27, 1924 - November 1, 1973.  A good man, lovingly remembered to this day. A rare picture, as he was usually holding the Brownie. We were visiting folks. In Oklahoma, 1954. I still wear glasses like this and the dress is probably still in the garage.
