Old News

I find it odd that a Google search on "hodgson jack" produces, as the number one result, the ISBN author's record for the book that I co-wrote over 15 years ago. Maybe it's time to write a new book.

Perhaps I should be more concerned that it also turns up references to "Casebook: Jack the Ripper", and the eulogy of a Jack Hodgson who died in 1977.

Just thought I'd say Hello! I gotta check out this blog stuff occasionally... it's quite fun! Maybe I'll start a Jack fan club! Is there a yahoo group on you? Oh, Sherm must have started one.

By the way, I have googled your name in the past and did see that eulogy from 1977 and the Jack the Ripper stuff. For reals! :-) (See, I should start a Jack fan club.) And if you google any of us "Tahoe Folks" you get Rob's Tahoe photos! Not being a techno-geek, that's a little disturbing actually... hey, I've had a few stalkers here and there. Okay, I may be paranoid, but I'm really not kidding!

Love your dapper photo where you look like you're a pilot... oh yeah, you are a pilot! But I think it's the aviator jacket, no, it's the avaitor sunglasses. Or, maybe it's the effect of the American flag just to the right of the dapper photo. Why does that flag only have 16 stars? You can't possibly be that old.

See ya!

Jo Ann! Welcome to the blog!

I think a "Jack fan club" is totally in order. Go for it.

I knew you'd like that jacket. It's my Bull Durham look.

There's only 16 stars?! I'll have to look into that!

Oh shit (sorry, Mrs H), here goes the neighborhood. Jo Ann -- if you have any stalkers it's members of the Highway Patrol trying to finally catch up with Mrs Toad.

The book comes up first because you reversed your name. Google in the normal order and it doesn't happen. Books must be inventoried by last name, first name.
