Raymond Berry Knew

Dad brought home a bulletin board when I was kid to pin up my sports heroes that I cut out of magazines and newspapers. Mom made him do it after saying to me while wagging her finger real fast, "I'll kill you if you put up one more piece of friggin scotch tape on the wall. We just painted!"

Even though Ray Berry was the enemy this quote by him was my favorite answer to any teacher asking, "Thomas, what do you want to be when you grow up?"

"My whole life and ambition could be summarized in one sentence: I just have to play football." 

Mom offered to kill me many more times, you can read about it in my memoir when you get it for Christmas.  "I Hate the Dallas Cowboys - tales of a scrappy New York boyhood."

Do you need a gift for an ageless kid? Then check out my 1960s memoir, "I Hate the Dallas Cowboys - tales of a scrappy New York boyhood." at Logos Book Store, or purchase the book online at Amazon (113 five-star reviews out of 113 posted) or Barnes & Noble. 

You can also buy "River to River ~ New York Scenes From a Bicycle" my photography portfolio online.
