Happy Friday everyone!
Got a request from some readers to share some more “people pictures” particularly any showing “us kids” as we were growing up in and around the Boston area as described in the book. I’m doing some digging, and putting together a “gallery” that I’ll be posting soon so stay tuned! Meanwhile, here’s one that goes way back to about 1958!
At this point in time, only the four oldest of us were born, with David, Eddie, and Susan to come along later. Right to left, the picture starts with me, then my sister Judy, second oldest, and Diane, the oldest, holding Loretta. Note the snazzy, if not very busy clashing of the wallpaper, draperies, and the couch! Again, more photos to follow soon.
As for the good news!
As of this week, my book is now available at two of the finest independent bookstores in the Massachusetts, the first, The Andover Bookstore in Andover Massachusetts. It is one of four stores managed by Hugobooks.
The Andover store is the second oldest continually operating bookstore in America! Founded in 1809, and celebrated its 200th birthday in October 2009. Here’s a picture and address! It’s an awesome store with a wonderful staff–go check it out if you’re in the area!

The book is also available at the “Book Rack,” an amazing store opened in beautiful Newburyport, Massachusetts, back in 1972! Again, an incredible, knowledgeable, and friendly staff await your visit! Check it out.
If you live in New England and haven’t yet been to Andover or Newburyport, they’re beautiful and quaint. Newburypot is a seaside community with LOTS of history, great architecture, shops, and restaurants. Here’s a pic and the info!
