A Golden Opportunity

CSN Stores has generously offered a $15 gift certificate to use toward any of their over 200 online stores for one lucky reader of Memo Book, which covers a period of my life when I was perhaps more interested in swinging on swing sets than from chandeliers. Or looking back on it, I guess both. Check out the sites and please write a comment here or post on my facebook page what you'd like to purchase so you can be entered in the drawing, and this golden ticket could be yours!

The Final Entry, 2003

Weds Jan 1, 2003
Twenty years later old pal, eh?
Good time at home, stayed over Kate’s—dinner! At a crossroads. Finished children’s novel, it’s good I think.
Praying for prospects.
Who would have thought that twenty years ago, this memo pad, this stocking stuffer soon would contain twenty years of my life! Here’s to much much more, Love, Peter Halsey

Home last Thursday
In Maine last weekend for Columbus Day and now jumping into that shower again to head to Gloucester with Glynnis and then back to NYC Saturday.
Its been quite a month.
The Towers were lost a month ago and three weeks ago I quit my job. Its an odd time. Looking for temp work while I find a special events job or perhaps even a writing job. I see Winnie told me to keep up on my writing or rather I should. That was 5 years ago. Growth, focus and a computer have enabled me to do so.
Almost on the last page! Almost 19 years! Anyway, got published this year, write reviews for a website and am halfway through writing a novella. Looking for a literary agent and publisher now. We’ll see.
I’ll be back for Christmas. In the meantime, I love you always. Wish me well, darling little vessel of mine.
xoxo Peter Halsey
P.S. The Ramada Inn is now McIntosh dorms!! For school! Chris is getting married in several weeks and its just as well – we can’t rent a dorm room for the night!! Oh and camp again with Joni this past summer ’01. Fun!!

Hi Baby,
Christmas Day! Had a wonderful time. Got home Thursday, spent Friday with Jonathan G. and Annie in Portland. Went to the Great Lost Bear.
My handwriting is HORRIBLE.
Had a couple of vodkas.
Chris and I started to fool around. He got sick, I passed out? fell asleep. Walked home at 6:15 am sunday morning.
Got together with Karen Suffolk and Elise.
Harry surprised us all by being home. So great. I have missed him. His daughter is divine and his wife only gets better and better.
Chris coming soon, off to Hallstead’s, for the annual party.
How the time flies. You realize I always have to write that now.
I love you, book. Always have. Back to NY tomorrow.

Love Always

Wish me well, as I do you.

Goodnight, sweet vessel.
God Bless, love,
Peter Halsey
