Hooks' car was reportedly hit by some old guy in a truck. There was damage to the front end of Hook's new Infiniti C-35. When Hooks went to talk to the guy, the old man was crying. Hooks didn't have the heart (or lack thereof) to get on the guy.

Rumor has it that a HC employee was moving someone's car when he backed into Eric's Porsche. Maybe that explains why no one wanted to move my car Thursday.

Wild Bill works for a car dealership. I asked him how the change in RI law to open on Sundays is affecting him. He said that he already works Sunday. Said Bill, "I'm in Mass." Contraire piped up, "I'm in Mass too at Mt. Carmel's." "You go to Mass", I asked? Contraire replied, "Yeah, every Sunday before the poker game."

Mr. D. was reminiscing about an art class he took at RI College. He did a painting with 100 blue dots surrounded by 1000 red dots. He called it, "Custer's Last Stand".

Foot Joy and I were talking about Peter Gammons' recent entry into the Hall of Fame. FJ recalled that Will McDonough didn't like Gammons because they came from different backgrounds and upbringings. I said that I loved McDonough's football columns but that he crossed the line in 1997 in the days before the Patriots-Green Bay Super Bowl. McDonough backed his friend Bill Parcells in print. McDonough stopped being a journalist. He lost my trust after that.

Our prayers are with Mikey K. who's having surgery on Tuesday. We wish him a full recovery.

Two guys walked by and checked the scores on TV. One guy said, "The Yankees are down 2-3."

Rob was telling us that his parents scored two tickets to Paul McCartney's concert in Boston. Their 3rd row tickets cost $800 each. E-Bay is offering $2000 per. Rob says he told his folks that if the price goes to $2400, they should sell them and go on a trip instead.

Polly Pure Pants and her husband The Postman visited with Mr. D. It was revealed that Pure Pants might have suggested that Mr. D. get her name tattooed on his butt. There were also discussions of 'drunk-dialing', and showing Mr. D. how to bait a hook. Ms. Cuyahoga Falls.

Mr. D. told me that Providence's Fleet Building (once the Industrial National Building) was not the model for the Daily Planet in Superman. However it does have a trolley car atop it. "Look up in the sky. It's a bird. It's a plane. No, it's a trolley car."
