In three notebooks is a feature and a half. The first half is in my computer waiting for the other half to be key padded in.
How long have I been working on this project?
In 1967 my parents told me a story. I was nine years old. That's when this journey began. I said to myself. "I'm going to write a movie script about that story someday."
In 1995 I tried and failed to turn that story into script. I was going to shoot the movie in Kansas City Missouri.
In 2009 I tried again. It's 2011 and I'm trying as hard as I can to finish that story based on the stories of my parents. Based on everything I am and was and I hope will be.

I was given the gift of a Granddaughter and she has made me a better person. Before she was born I was quick to anger and now when I am tempted by my inner demons, I think of her and a calm comes over me.
"What would Cordelia think if she saw her Grandpa in anger?"
A few times she has seen me in anger and I was so ashamed of myself. She with my Grandson Denver are the miracles in the last pages of my life. There is nothing better than the laughter of your grandchildren.
I remember the second day of her life when I first saw her.
"I must become a better person."
She makes me a better person.

I'm 52 years old and I love toys. I love giving my grandchildren toys. I love buying toys. I love fixing toys. I love selling toys.
I have a booth at an Antique Mall that sells vintage and custom toys. I never grew up.

With apologies to Google for posting their wonderful New Year's heading, I start the New year out with a new business.
In December 2010 I started a vintage and custom toy business. I have six movies I want to produce this year and I need to raise money for those movies.
I have given up on the city of my birth and have vowed never to make a movie in Kansas City, Missouri again. The criminal elite of that city will never get my business.
I hope to move to a place with better air this year and I believe we as a species need to stop burning fossil fuel.
As I write this I am hours away from finishing my Trilogy of Movie Scripts. I've been working on this project since 1995.
Happy New Year!
