The Blog Takes a Break

             We'll be back Oct. 18.  In the meantime, feel free to scroll down or click on such gems as After Mad Men; Dickie and Darlene have breakfast  In Praise of the Belleville MidgetsThe Midgets of Belleville. Part II  Truth in Grass: a Kansas adventure The Story of the Larned Eagle Optic Hollywood Calls, You Pick up the Phone
Hollywood Calls, you pick up the phone part 2 maybe my favorite My Short Happy War in Afghanistan or no, wait, wait, Fangio and the Maserati 250 F for the priceless video of Fangio in a polo shirt and helmet, absolutely relaxed driving a Maserati 250F around a beat up old race track with no run off, no barriers, no safety nothing.  My lunch with Rob Walker is a good one even though it leaves out the Betty Grable stories. Then there's Erno Goldfingers house-and-mine- which throws in Ian Flemming, no extra charge. Riding around Laguna Seca with Jackie Stewart was picked up by Or my favorite of all How You Look at the Sky Or just cruise through, maybe come upon some unexpected little gem like an excerpt from The Candle 
              Or Uncle John's Prayer
             And, of course, the one that started it all, Truck Story 
             Or go visit Vanessa Carlisle, see what she has to say on the way to her PHD and dancer's pole in Hollywood on her blog, Gorgeous Curiousity
              Then there's Elif Batumen, San Francisco's brightest and funniest writer, a fine lady to curl up with for a good read.  Here's.Elif's homepage.
             Enjoy, Have a ball.  Bob
