replied this to Sandra so I will share it with you— Thank you Sandra. My love of life consists of friends, family, art and antiques. I am fascinated with what life has to offer and when I hear of someone doing some crazy adventure, I want to go do it (I am an adrenalin freak),–I am not religious and belong to no church but I absolutely love my God and he is with me all the time!—I smoke a pipe occasionally and a great cigar upon very rare occasions. I drink occasionally. I am extremely happily married and I adore my wife (anyone who knows me will tell you).—and I am ill with a pituitary tumor which is now lodged deeply in my brain, which makes life even more precious. —now you know me!—olRoff

The Kid in The Alley

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

I miss the poor Mexican kids in the alley behind our former gallery. I will never forget the boy, about 12, whose shoes were so worn out that they were wrapped on his feet with duct tape, but even more, I will never forget the lady in Burton’s Shoe Store who unwrapped his feet, with tears in her eyes. I bought him a pair of shoes and the shoe store owner gave him a pair of sandals.–probably more shoes than he had ever had at one time.-olRoff
