                 give us comfort and let us feel good about
                       working and earning what we have.

Hi everybody

I just want to tell you about a play  that I am instm4 that is being performed in the Gillespie Theater just off US 1 at the News Journal Center up in Daytona Beach on 13, 14 and 15 Jan 2107.

Not too far from  the Martinique … the place we  used to go to play  (LOL)  …

The play is called SLINKY the Musical and is about the Woman who made SLINKY a household name.




It was written by a person who in the last year or two, with his daughter Becky, became a friend of mine … Bob Brabham.  He collaborated  his writing with the head  of Barton and Cureton Advertising Agency in Columbia South Carolina,  Tom Cureton.  Tom died a few years back; but, I have the pleasure of playing his part in the Musical.  Both Bob and Becky are phenomenal people with talent beyond that which dreams are made.

I’d love to see as many of you at the performances as possible. It will indelibly mark your memory forever
