Early evening. Just got back from dinner out. Mostaccioli at Luigi’s. Wine in the foreground, Sinatra in the background. Does it get better than that? I don’t think so.
Had a brief email exchange earlier today with Toby Smith, author of the Dempsey piece, Kid Blackie, I’ve been mentioning in my last few entries. Learned Rocky Mountain PBS is airing a special on Smith and his incredibly entertaining book in October. The 2nd, to be precise.
Kid Blackie has been in print close to 30 years, but I’m sure Mr. Smith would say the release of the documentary is impeccably timed. Finding an audience—no matter how long it takes—is always gratifying. Good luck to him, and congratulations on his hard work.
