I’ve been working on this secret project for more than a year just after I bought my laptop computer back in December 2015. The new book is called:
The Outside In View of Uncommon Bostonian:
What a Autistic Black Woman Sees
I went to the publisher called BookBaby to create both a paperback book and an ebook. It includes the blog posts I made when the orignal Uncommon Bostonian blog was connected to The Boston Now dailey newspaper back in 2007 to 2008. It also has some of the essays I’ve written in recent years and some of my black and white paintings that I made in the last couple of years. I write about the Beatles, the soap One Live to Live, the Dave Clark Five, the Monkees, and other things. I created the artwork on the cover. It’s my Purple Haze painting.

Here’s a picture of both the front and back cover of the paperback.

Sad Anniversary of his murder. It’s been 38 years! 😢
Miss you a lot, John! You did a lot in your short life. You will never be forgotten. You have influenced many so far!
All we need is love and give peace a chance.
Happy 75th Birthday, Jim Morrison! 🎂
December 8, 1943 – July 3, 1971
Jim would have been 75 years old today. Greatly missed. He was the lead singer of the Doors.
George Harrison of the Beatles and the Traveling Wilburys (February 25, 1943 – November 29, 2001)
I cried when I heard the sad news that George had passed due to the cancer he was battling. He was only 58 years old at the time.
Today would have been Robert Vaughn’s birthday. Here he is pictured above from the movie The Magnificent Seven. This was prior to his role of Napoleon Solo on The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
He was a very talented actor in movies and television. Greatly missed. He died on November 11, 2016.
Happy Birthday, Kurt Vonnegut (November 11, 1922 – April 11, 2007)
My favorite author would have been 96 years old today! Sadly, he left us back in 2007. I love reading his books. He was also a World War 2 veteran.
Happy Veterans Day!
It’s better known as Armistice Day which was the day that World War 1 ended. Today is the 100th anniversary of the end of the war. I was at church today at 11 am, and my pastor rang the church’s bell.
My great-grandfather was a doughboy in that war. He died back in the mid-1950’s due to the long term effects of his being exposed to mustard gas during the war. Never had the chance to meet him because I was born almost ten years after he died.
Happy Birthday in Heaven, Johnny Carson! (October 23, 1925 – January 23, 2005)
Loved watching him on “The Tonight Show.” He was funny as hell! Miss him a lot.
Happy 68th Birthday, Tom Petty! (October 20, 1950 to October 2, 2017)
Still find it hard to believe that Tom left us last year. It’s been pretty rough on all of us!
Recently, his family and his band, the Heartbreakers, have released An American Treasure box set of unreleased material. Check it out!
Also, this month marks the 30th anniversary of the formation of the Traveling Wilburys which included Tom as a member along with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne.
