Then and Now



I can't say enough about how writing a book has allowed me to reconnect with old friends from way back. In 1991, meteorologist John Bolaris came to the summer camp I attended for kids with disabilities and I had the thrill of reading the weather forecast with him. Later that year, John took me to a Philadelphia Eagles game, returning later that evening for a holiday dinner with my family.

After several years in New York, John recently returned to Philadelphia, this time as chief meteorologist at Fox 29. Through my publisher, Little Treasure Books, I got in touch and had a chance to visit him at the studio today. Not only that, but John has written a very touching endorsement that will soon grace the back cover of my book. And thanks to a little bit of networking, another TV appearance is a distinct possibility. Stay tuned...

You know a real life meteorologist? That is so cool! I'm jealous.

Man...I'm a nerd.
