This week I heard of the death of three people from the Boston media who were legends, each in his own way. Steve and Harry and I were colleagues when I worked in television, and Rex Trailer was our local Boston cowboy, and the gentle host of "Boomtown", a kids show which is forever engrained in the memories of anyone who grew up in Boston in the 50's and 60's. Fade to black. At least on THIS screen.
Meanwhile, I finally start my "Christmas job" today. Yes, I know it's a little late, but at last I got a call to come in and we'll see how it goes. It's a little part-time job, but it's more than I make sitting at the computer, writing this blog or solving crossword puzzles. And it's a reason to get dressed. Just for that, I'm excited. I haven't had a real "job" since 1999. Oh, there has been the odd singing "gig", a funeral here, a Mass there, caroling hither and yon. I even substitute taught for a while. But this might be interesting. Out in public working with people. Time for something new. I'll keep you posted.
