    I wanted to get one of the Rat Beach Tee Shirts


    • Hmm. Tee-shirts? You sure you wouldn’t rather have an Ozcanvexus puzzle? Check out the site at If you want one, either:

      (1) Come to the Chamber of Commerce Local Authors Book Fair at the Promenade on the Peninsula courtyard tomorrow, Saturday, December 20th, 2014, between 11 and 4 pm. The puzzles are $10 each this week only at local craft fairs. Three for $27 net at the fairs.

      or (2) If you can’t come to the Book Fair, you may mail me your check or money order for $14. I’ll ship as soon as possible. I can’t guarantee delivery before Christmas or last day of Hanukkah, but I’ll do the best I can. Please mail the check to the address in the email I just sent you.

    Hello Jeff,
    I enjoyed chatting with you yesterday at Loyola. The author who is in my parish is John J. Gobbell. His novels are WWII history with fictional Lieutenant Todd Ingram. I enjoyed two of his books. He has a well-developed website that you might find interesting. Good wishes.
