Tall Paul

January 23, 2012

My son, Thomas Charles, turns 29 today. Yesterday I treated him and his fiance Pattarapan to a day of feasting. I asked Tommy what his favorite restaurant was and I'd take him there. He thought for some time then said he couldn't make up his mind between three places. I said, Hell, let's make a day of it and go to all three! So we started at noon at 16th Street and Van Buren at La Frontera for street tacos. Then over to La Posoleria, then to his fave sushi place on Northern and I-17. It was a long day, but we paced ourselves.

My good friend John Boessenecker is doing a biography on Sheriff Bob Paul, the intrepid sheriff who stood a solid six foot four. Most photos show him as an older man. My challenge is to show him in his prime when he loomed over Southern Arizona.

Lots of goals for the coming weeks. Lots to do.

"The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score."
