  1. New book-"Lucy Comes Home"

    GOT mine! (See Premiere this Lounge) posted over there; several photos meaningful to me: my Dad; my nephew; a former classmate brother; and ALL THE OTHERS. There's one in there confuses me; have never read that Desi mom went with them. See page 163; looks like her on the bed.... My dad: page 106; w/his best friend; page 108; PP 90, 91 (Dawson) (DeMarco) each an interview w/Lucy. Thanks for the heads up regarding book signing in August.
  2. Forever Darling Premiere

    Just received from Amazon, Christopher T. Olsen, Lucy Comes Home, A Photographic Journey; it's lovely. Rumor has it, the Restaurant he and his former classmate have not progressed in the repair of the burned-out famous eating place, Bemus Point (on the other side of the Lake); [questionable assumption if they are still buying it] can't remember who told me; but, if I hear anything further, will pass the word along. Just as a reminder, Chris is son to the Forever Darling Prremiere Queen, Janice Swanson (at the time) during Arnazes visit here in '56.
