Document Description
Nick and Lorna -- in their 70s -- are at breakfast, and Nick, reading over the paper, begins to expound on how much these people -- actresses, a woman that used to be in a bikini in 'Sports Illustrated,' some woman wrting about flying brooms -- make writing children's books. Lorna half listens as, it would seem, Nick thinks he might take a crack at it; though she does give him one piece of advice, Hemingway's 'Write what you know.' And as Nick begins his book, and eventually shows it to Lorna, maybe what he has to say is a little more important -- especially to some -- than what would be in most, if any, children's books.

Thewalking with the concerted, now near-shuffle, gate. Though he had not spent fourstraight years manning an anti- aircraft gun on a destroyer in the Pacific from ‟41 through‟44 to have to indulge the various medical, and otherwise, opinions of his own children as to how best deal with the physical concerns now there before, and with, him.
