Thanks Donna - what a blast we had! And YOU, my sweet friend, made if fun for me as well!! Loved hanging out and chatting. If I knew that doing a blog like this could muster up so much love and affirmation from folks, I would have done it YEARS ago - LOL!! And GREAT idea to tell folks about John's book (see below)!
I agree with Jim Grasse, what a wonderful weekend and you made it so much fun because of the blog. I hope that everyone will pass the blog address to all of their friends that couldn’t make the event so we can keep in touch and keep this going.
Now that I am a California resident again I will try and put something together (with the help of others) for the 100 anniversary at BHS. It was wonderful to reconnect with old friends and to make new friends this weekend.
Thanks again Cathy for being so thoughtful and spending so much time to make this happen!
Love Dona Foy Porcaro
P.S. I just went to Amazon.com and purchased John Coyle’s book! You should mention he has a great detective novel out there.
Yes! Here is the link to The Fear of Reality by John M. Coyle, Cathy Nicholls Coyle's husband.
Book Description from Amazon.com:
The Fear of Reality is a fictional tale about a homicide detective working South Central Los Angeles. While Detective "Sully" Sullivan is working on an execution style homicide of a street gang member turned police informant; his investigation uncovers a cop gone bad.
With the aide of his good friend, Detective Ralph Doyle, Sully uncovers a sinister group of misfits led by a prominent Los Angeles attorney by the name of William Masey. Masey is an attorney to the rich and famous. He has for many years assisted his clients in the adoption of unwanted newborns. Masey's clients, who represent the more affluent white population of Los Angeles, now desire healthy, Caucasian children for adoption.
When the demand for these Caucasian babies becomes greater than the supply, Masey sends his band of degenerates upon unsuspecting expectant mothers. Sully's research reveals a trend that showed numerous Caucasian women, at eight and a half months pregnant, had vanished. Sully is horrified when he discovers his own wife, and unborn son, have fallen prey to their evil plan.
The author began writing this work of fiction several years ago after being inspired by the disappearance of Laci Peterson and Conner, her unborn child. The author does not question the fact that Scott Peterson is responsible for the murder of his wife and unborn child. However, there were questions raised during the trial by the defense that an unknown cult had abducted Laci for some type of satanic sacrifice. The author took this a step further and came up with a criminal enterprise bent on stealing unborn children from the womb of their mother; so that childless wealthy clients could be enriched by the patter of little feet.
