Had a fine time speaking at the East Haven Library Tuesday night, with the friendliest people you'd want to meet anywhere. Some things covered:
We're going to have the Tv listings magazine add the (N) for new episode to prime time.
My Uncle Matt and Aunt Linda were/are beloved in town.
People think I need a new logo photo.
Someone actually mentioned this blog as a cool thing.
I said several bad words in Italian slang; the rest were food items.
A woman who lived downstairs from my father and his huge family 60 years ago on Pierpont Street was there. She said she couldn't walk very well as a child and my Uncle Joe (and/or Matt) would take her for rides in their wagon. My dad recalls she was partially disabled as a child but that she seemingly willed herself to health and a long life. Good to see her.
The Post Service Stamp Out Hunger drive is this Saturday, says Mr. Leonetti, father of former Register reporter Carol Leonetti. So leave your non-perishable food items for carriers Saturday.
There's a woman I met who collects even more Italian slang than I do.
East Haven's center is pretty attractive these days; this is an underrated town in our area.
