A Day of Bonuses

Today has been a good day so far.....

As I was driving to work, I was listening to Scott and Sue. Sue had asked Scott to read the poem I wrote especially for her birthday. Unfortunately, I got to work before I heard it, but to show my appreciation, I left another poem on the Wynn and Wilson website, pertaining to a contest being run on WQMX.

Shortly after 8 o'clock, the plant manager walked into my office and handed me a book, called "The Best of Hal Lebovitz." Hal was a sports-writing legend in this area for many years. And John, my plant manager, thought I'd appreciate this book that he picked up at a yard sale.

The book contains many of Hal's columns he wrote over the years, many of which I remember reading as I looked for the previous days scores in the Cleveland Plain Dealer during the 1970's. I started reading this book during my lunch break(after writing the poem at and already can say that any Cleveland sports fan would enjoy the book. So if you are interested in this book go to the Gray and Company website for a great deal on this and other books about Northeast Ohio. Cliff note to Jane Lassar: I hope you like the free plug. There will be more in the coming weeks.

Hal was always one of my favorites..I remember reading in recent years how he "beat the drum" long and hard when he found out through his sources that the Cleveland Indians were considering moving to Seattle in 1964..His efforts largely prevented this from happening..

Also:Jane Lassar is a really classy Lady..When I asked to use pictures out of one of Gray's books for my blog, She offered me preview copies of several of their recent books unsolicited..

I was also invited to a "Launch Party" lsat year for the original "Big Chuck" book. I couldnt go, but those parties are usually pretty nice affairs..They do things up right at Gray and Company..
