His first book: “If you know what I mean” was something that John had begun two years ago. What I had read was so wonderful that I encouraged him to write more stories and complete a book. He is onto his second book now. These pictures are from his 80th birthday party this past July. I remember that it was a day of frazzlement for me- Driving from the office to orange then back to Stonington for another event. But wonderful to know John and perhaps be a source of inspiration at times.
