Days of Summer
I do not have a dog photo to send you; however, I have collected
James Thurber’s books for many years and have attached my favorite
of his dog cartoons. It was published in his 1943 book Men, Women and
Dogs (the title pretty much tells you what the book is about).
BTW, my wife and I have been passing our sequestration binging
on “Madam Secretary” (100+ episodes). Please pass on my thanks
to your young Geoffrey for helping us get through these trying times.
Retired, AA Cargo
Being stuck in one spot for most of this year, an occasional
tale of hope can be uplifting.
So we thought to share this letter and story.
Dick Dougherty is someone who walks into a room and the place
lights up because he is there.
We are so pleased to learn that after nearly five decades
in air cargo he is alive and well and enjoying his retirement.
But air cargo is still followed. For Dick that song has ended,
but the melody lingers on.
It is also great to think good guys finish first!
Here is what we wrote about Dick in 2012 . . .
PS. Geoffrey II (in photo, right) appears in the
coming season of Goliath where he co-stars with Billie Bob Thornton. Goliath,
seen in USA on HULU, stopped filming when the pandemic shut down Hollywood,
but vows to complete final episodes for the new season when things open
Madam Secretary in its entirety, with five seasons
of over 100 episodes is currently airing on Netflix worldwide.
