Covid concrete coverage

Updated: Oct 5

"You and your book are in the news! See page 11. Congratulations." said the email from the PR people.


"Wait is that you?" Gail asked a week later on our regular morning walk as she pointed to the rolled-up paper on the concrete.


In unison, we both bent over and peered closely.


There I was cropped into a two-inch square below cover art of a DJ and his orange space man robot thing.


Me and the French boutique and the interim Episcopal CEO in a banner across the bottom.


We laughed.


She took a picture.









She took another photo.


Yep, me again.


On the concrete.


Untouched.









Even the chalk-drawing kids in the neighborhood got in on the action.



I finally acquiesced, picked up a copy, and took it home for a look.





The worst part - I'm even more rumpled and wrinkled than ever...
