I was going to call this episode "Between Doors," as several "doors" in my life have recently closed, and I'm awaiting some new ones to open. However, the day ended up being a "Beach Day," which was another appropriate title! So "BD" it is! My son Jacob & I went to the city of my birth, Long Branch, New Jersey, where my mother Nancy lives, and the three of us went to the beach. We also went to my other hometown, Howell, New Jersey, twice, visiting my friends Sabrina and Lynda! "Beach Day" topics include a bit of my personal history, "pool people" vs. "beach people," my grandparents' now abandoned buildings, my Mom's poodle Emily, mussels & my seafood allergies, The Mystery of Jetties, playgrounds, Jacob's report card & concert performance, airplane advertisements, Amy's Omelette House, helping my mom with computer stuff. "Between Doors" topics include finishing substitute teaching for the school year, the final performances of "The Dining Room," and finishing the first draft of the screenplay of "The Miracle Man" (NOTE: If you would like to read my draft, and provide feedback, e-mail me at email@example.com!), upcoming jobs counting people and possibly demonstrating 3D TV's. Words of Wisdom: Be grateful for the best parts of your day, every day, and resolve to make each day the best day it can be!
