Did He Make It Big? - UPDATE!

Back in November I posted about this book by Josh Wagner I found at the Goodwill Outlet Store ...

It had been signed by the author ... to "Draven".
I found a Facebook entry that led me to Draven's full name ...

This morning, to my surprise, I got a comment from Draven on the post!

"You found my book? I lost it at a doctor's appointment and thought it was lost for good. Josh became a friend of mine, and is a wonderfully talented comic book writer, as well as author. I admire his drive very much. Did you like the book?

I still write a lot and have been published a few times, but it will take time before I 'make it.' College is next on the horizon, along with a fantasy series I am currently writing.

Draven Ames"

How exciting is THAT???
This is what I envisioned happening when I started this blog of obscure stuff I have "found"!

Note to Draven: I read the book and thought it was very good!
Now my question ... would you like your book back?
I found your e-mail address, so I will be in touch!!!

Clytie ... Her Mythology

Someone gave me this clipping when I was in high school ...
I've kept it all these years.
I thought it was lost, but I was going through my "stuff" ... and found it again!

Poor Clytie.

I'd Rather Hold It, Thank You!

Of all things to find at the "abandoned" church ... this is one of the strangest!

Found Thank You ...

I've been spending a lot of time trying to sort, organize and inventory the incredible volume of ephemera I have stashed in boxes around the house ...

This beautiful tribute to veterans of the (first) Gulf War was written back in 1991 by my cousin's daughter to my (ex) husband Guy to thank him for fighting for her freedom.

Now how precious is THAT?

Found Heart on Old Photo

Back in 1980 I took one of those pre-packaged trips to Hawaii with my friend Nadine. What a fun week it was!
The package included a "Luau", and we had a blast.

I recently found the photos from that trip, and as I scanned them, I noticed a random heart. Do you see it?
