My long-time bud,pal,friend and ally, & I have moved to Tucson, AZ in Sept upon his retiring after 39 years with Mission Linen in Santa Barbara. We bought a brand-spanking new 4bdrm/3car-garage house in a new development just 10 minutes north of downtown, for about 1/4 of what a similar house would cost in Calif-never mind SB- if such were available there.We are settling in getting ready for Christmas with decorating the tree, etc. The only sad thing in all this was the loss of our beloved little poodle "Lucky" who was attacked and killed by two dogs while Al was walking him in the parking lot of the motel we were staying at while awaiting close of escrow. But, as they say, life goes on-he will always be in our hearts and minds-he knows he was loved.
My old car which is in my profile pic is still back in SB getting some work done-installing new front end stabilizers,etc, so we will be making that long-haul back there sometime in the early New Year to return with it.
While Al is satisfied to not "work" any more, I'm still trying to come up with something in my old field of TV/video/production.I have a long-dormant idea of a "Road-trip" type show done down-under in Australia where I spent a lot of time. I have the knowledge, the passion and the connections-what I don't have is the $$$I also have a swell family-oriented action/adventure film script I'm pitching, as well as an adult-themed script/story I'd like to turn into either a Graphic Novel or an anime-style cartoon type animated movie. If anyone reading this is interested, or might know of someone who could help, please contact me. Again, with this project, I have no money, but am willing to share, if someone is willing to take that chance with me.I know I'm asking a lot-your expertise and work is worth something...so is mine, in all modesty, and I know first-hand how hard it is to get people to believe and help.
Anyway, that's it for now. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Year to you all! Cheers!
