After spending five nights of the Christmas vacation chatting with this kid and telling him gobs of old war stories about the days of my youth work, I ended up with 14 pages of notes. So I began working on the new book, which will be a fact-based book about my . . . life. Right now, I am up to chapter four and hopefully will breeze through the next several chapters without a hitch. So anyone interested to know how I got started youth work, will discover that in this particular book.
I think it will be called, Behind the Eight Ball, a fact-based book about the author. If anyone else has a better title, shoot it my way. I might consider it.
Well, Nick now has the Flip camera, so as soon as he feels comfortable using it, we’re planning on shooting the two scenes of the play. I hope to add a third scene to this, so we can show the whole thing at the Joyo in the spring. I’ll invite the Dodging Bullets back as we are using their music in the background of the tape, and then we’ll end that particular show with a live, one-kid monologue delivered by Alex.
