My mom’s 3rd 74th birthday is coming up at the end of September. She’s had the longest run at one age of anyone I know. I believe she would get a real kick out of your stuff. What do you recommend I start her off with?

Hope you have time to respond,

Thank you,


Come to think of it, she began dating my dad when all he had to drive was a 74 Cubic Inch Harley. Hmmmm?

Your story on growing up in Hollywood was good. I grew up in Los Angeles. I really had fun listening. Thanks.

I am all for repeating ages you like. Try my book BORGEL. It's about someone who's 111. (Hard to find, but it will be in the collection, out later this year, when your mother will be....74).
