    No, I've not read that. I did read "Jean and Johnny", by Beverly Cleary, recently. I've been weeding out books. This one is a sweet, innocent story of a girl's first crush. 

    This gentleman's book was the last book I read. I actually met him once



    Maurice W. Graham

    King of the Hoboes





    "Steam Train Maury" Graham (June 3, 1917 – November 18, 2006) was best known as five-time holder of the title "King of the Hobos", and was later known as "Patriarch of the Hobos". Born to a broken home in Ohio, he was shunted from father to mother to aunt to married siblings. In 1931, at the age of 14, Graham began riding the rails as a hobo during the Great Depression. He settled in Toledo, Ohio with his wife Wanda in the late 1930s, and worked as a cement mason and founded a trade school for masons. During World War II, he served in the military as a medical technician. In 1969 he returned to the hobo life for another eleven years, finally retiring in 1980.


    Maury Graham adopted the nickname "Steam Train" in 1969, when the "Golden Spike Special" steam train came through Ohio, returning home from the 100th anniversary of the completion of the first US transcontinental railroad. He was one of the founding members of the National Hobo Foundation. He also helped established the Hobo Museum in Britt, Iowa.


    Mr. Maurice Graham died due to complications from stroke at the Northcrest Nursing Home in Napoleon, Ohio. He was 89.

    Nothing wrong with that. My next must read is "Stuart Little".

    "The Shack" was a great book IMO. My grandfather told me last week that it has been made into a movie.

    @Bob....Some people think that Danielle Steel writes mindless drivel. That's what I like about her books. I don't have to think! :)

    Sometimes, mindless drivel is more than enough.
    She's wildly successful, which must mean there are a lot of us who don't have to be intellectually, spiritually, or otherwise stimulated by our reading material.
