Weekend Newsbites: Sat. & Sun., Feb. 2 & 3, 2013
Being social... having sex...
Perhaps some television... some radio...
What is life all about? Pursuing one's dreams? Being a spouse... being a parent... being a good son or daughter?
Life is the BIG stuff... and life is the SMALL stuff. Milestones on one end of the scale, momentary pleasures on the other.
I love to read! My writings come out of my readings! Much of the pleasure of a lifetime have come out of my readings - both factual and fictional!
Right now I'm getting a lot of pleasure out of reading Robert B. Parker's "Jesse Stone" series; right now I'm about a third of the way through "Trouble in Paradise."
Perhaps some of you have read Parker's works - if not the "Jesse Stone" novels, then perhaps the "Spencer" novels?
Over the past few years CBS Television has aired a series of "Paradise" novels starring Tom Selleck as "Jesse Stone." (And of course anyone my age or thereabout will remember the mid/late '80's ABC Television Series "Spencer For Hire" starring the late Robert Urich.)
Robert B. Parker died in 2010. His works live on.
Anyway... enjoy the Big Game this Sunday, folks. And perhaps on Monday... drop by your local library or a bookstore and pick up a good book!
