Saw this good man last week. Among topics we covered were whales having more than one penis (he says three). I have never heard of this. Maybe he was pulling my leg? I haven’t looked it up because I kind of would rather just believe it.

We went for a walk with Herman, his german shepard who is named after one of his heroes, Herman Melville.

Also, it was his birthday last month as you can see from the birthday plate.

He also showed me a Max sailing sculpture he was sent from some art gallery in nyc that is going to make them.

He added Obama to the mix with great affect. As you can remember they are close personal friends.

He was feeling a little run down the day I saw him so if anyone wants to send him a message, please do so and we will send them over to him.

The highlight of the day was him telling me why people loved Shakespeare’s (another one of Maurice’s heroes) plays when Shakespeare was alive. He told me the whole story of Romeo and Juliet which I hadn’t thought of in a long time. By the time he got to the part where the parents found their dead children and realized what they had done, we both had runny eyes.

Maurice is a good storyteller.
