Long Time, No Blog

By my count, it has been 20 days since I last posted here. I think that may be a record.

In the meantime, by a not-very-odd coincidence, the last time I had something published in the Boston Herald was also 20 days ago. This is because my editor decided she didn't want any of the other three pieces I submitted in the meantime.

She didn't diss me. She was rather nice about it and offered useful constructive criticism. She did NOT say, "You call this writing, Sullivan? Yes, there are words and punctuation - sometimes very oddly-placed punctuation - but the only place it would truly be appreciated is on the bottom of a birdcage."

As I say, she did NOT say that. AND she bought the piece you can now see by clicking onto The Handy Link Below.

The Handy Link Below.

I would have bought all of the pieces, but that's because I like everything I write. I would also have doubled... no, quadrupled my pay because... well, just because. So there.

Apparently, I've run out of useful things to say here, so you may as well go there. Here's Another Handy Link: Another Handy Link.

OK, I'm done for now. Thanks for stopping by. Here's hoping it won't another 20 days.

Soon (if it's not 20 days - or more!)

Columbus Day

Celebrate - or not. I give a few reasons for both in today's column in the Boston Herald.

Here's the column!

If nothing else, enjoy the day off (if you have the day off, of course. If you don't, then do whatever you have to do.)

Thanks for coming here, and thanks for reading - in both places, I hope.

Soon, with more better stuff.

A Worthy Cause (& Fun!)

The Jared Kenney Memorial Softball Tournament is what I'm talking about.

You can find out a bit more about it in today's Boston Herald. I write about it there.

Here's a link. I hope you'll go there and read what I had to say.

In addition, should you wish more information, here is a link to the Facebook page of the fundraiser itself. They can always use a donation of something fun to be raffled off; and sports-related items are especially good since it's a sporting event attended mostly by those who enjoy softball. Or, of course, just buying a few raffle tickets at the playing site will benefit the charity, also.

If you have the time, and you're in the area, I expect I'll be there Saturday for at least a couple of games. They'll be ongoing, on two different diamonds, from 8:30am onward. Stop by and say "Hi!" If you don't see me, just ask anyone in the stands if they've seen Sully. Since it's being held in South Boston, it's possible the person you ask will respond, "I'm Sully. Why do you want to see me?" and it might not even be me.

Thanks for reading, of course. I appreciate it.

Soon, with more better stuff.
