Greenwich in Tampa

Your scribe just can't resist sharing this photo of The 2008 Greenwich Historical Calendar hanging in a newly-reorganized office in Tampa, FL. Yes, he knows his books and other creations can be found in all the best homes and libraries all over the world, but it's always nice to see pictorial proof.

To say that your scribe is tickled pink would be an understatement. Just this morning he was working on laying out the 2009 version, so he feels greatly encouraged in his endeavors.

Comes now a second picture from the southland, showing the calendar in its original setting before the reorganization process:

Again, your scribe was greatly pleased to see the place of honor accorded to the calendar. For your information, gentle reader, the reorganized workspace now looks like this:

Pretty neat, huh? (Pun obviously intended.) Just makes you want to park your fanny in that ergonomic chair and get to work!

Closer to home, the AuthorBabe also has a newly-designed office, better known as her "writing lair":

OMG, is that the same chair?! Sure looks like it! Gotta get me one of those right away! Clearly the choice of chair has a direct correlation to superior writing ability, since two of the best writers known to your scribe have identical ideas on the matter.

In other news, the effects of the late Leona Helmsley are being put up for sale starting tomorrow. Sadly, it will not be another memorable tag sale here in Town, but a full-blown series of auctions run by Christie's in their Rockefeller Center facilities. No chance to tour the legendary Dunnellen Hall and gawk at the artwork and furnishings. Darn!

Speaking of Dunnellen Hall, your scribe has just bumped into his friend Chris Poth, who had lunch there back when the Washburns owned the property. What a small world!

And now it's time to head out and see what else the day has in store. Rest assured, dear reader, that noteworthy events will find their way into these lines, sooner if not later!

What! No mention of the fact that Skippy Snickerson is not going to seek re-election?!

Well, Sarah, if I'd known at the time that Skippy was retiring, I surely would have mentioned it. But prescient as I often am, this one eluded me.

Also retiring is "the Doll", which means that maybe we can send both Ed Krumeich and Frank Farricker to Hartford in their place!

BTW, where do you do your chair-shopping?

E did an amazing transformation of her office! Here I was looking for one of your books and totally missed the calendar until now.

So, how does a person get one of these oh so coveted calendars? BnN?

Hi, Vicki!

You must have gone blind trying to read the bookshelves! :-)

While the calendars are in fact listed in "Books in Print" (they have an ISBN number), the best place to get them is from your friendly scribe. Send me your mailing addy in an email, and the next outgoing postrider will have one in his saddlebags for you.

My sister and brother-in-law gave it to me when they got rid of it.

It's worn and dirty and covered in coffee stains, but it's very comfortable!

I didn't know we were getting rid of "The Doll" too. Hooray!!!

You said it, Sarah! A new day dawns in Greenwich!
