An Especially Good Start to Spring

I think today is the second day of spring? Is that right? Well, regardless if its the second or third, it is a great day, an especially good Saturday and a wonderful way to start the season. My t-shirts and books are all safe in my hands. Isn’t that awesome? I tell you, I was so proud to open that big huge box and and see my book finally in print, finally standing on its own, finally cataloging this long journey.

But, just to see how I looked in one, I slipped into the shirt and disappeared. Sure, pretty easy to do for a 6 foot gangly man who ways about 135. (I’m all sticks and legs). So, my friend Phillip decided to model it for me. And he looks so much better in that t-shirt with his tattoos and muscular forearms. So, thanks, man! Doubt people will confuse you for me!

I’ve spent the afternoon signing copies and that made me feel….official? Yeah. That’s it! Official! So to celebrate, I had a Cuban sandwich, a cafe con leche, and a sit in the sun. Being in the house finishing up the book has made me pale ๐Ÿ™‚ When I got home? I kept on smiling.


IMG_1444It’s an awesome start to Spring. All the info you need about my new book is on My Book page. You can order a regular paperback, orย  you can get a signed copy with the t-shirt. So step on over and take a look.

(Gonna go back to the other half of my Cuban sandwich now…, those are good). All that’s missing is a silly cigar and a swank Fedora. Have a great Saturday everyone!



  1. So nice to see you with a smile, Gregory. I can totally see your pleasure and sense of accomplishment by looking at that photo. You’ve had it rough for too long, so enjoy this reprise from the struggle for a while.

  2. maybe if you get a baby sized one it could fit a bear – not sure if NB or 0-3mo might work (a bit loose) but super cute….just a thought. Love the shirts!
