As you all know, my friend Frank died last October 27 2006.

When he passed on, he had many of my things stored in his apartment.

My stuff is safe, but I must go to Phoenix and get it or it will be
discarded.

So, that means I must drive away to Phoenix.

I will stay there, permanently.

Dont worry, I promise to come back to visit my family next Summer.

The gallery I made, will continue.

I can access it from where I will be.

But my days of living here on City Island are over, for the most part.

I dont want to see them destroy a bridge that was designed by the
great architect Stanford White! It's a sin!

The island has become a nightmare to drive on.

Some of you have asked me why I did not move off of City Island earlier.

I did in 1981 but I became sick. I was supposed to have gone back in
1990 but Frank became homeless, so I cancelled my trip. Later in May
1991 I was hurt in a car crash. I recuperated by 1999 and caught West
Nile Virus and became ill once again.

It was a series of unfortunate events.

I am packing, now. So please forgive me if I do not respond.

I am just too busy.

Regarding Frank, he was cremated against his wishes, by his
ex-girlfriend who inherited all of his stuff.

She will place his ashes upstate NY.

May Holy Jehovah Bless you all!

I am going to miss my birds......

Q What will become of your new board?

A The forum style gallery will always remain alive and well even after I move on or pass away.

Q Will you still run it from Phoenix?

A Yes. I am not abandoning it. Just moving away to Arizona.

Q Are there Mute Swans in Arizona?

A Yes, many, but I doubt if they will ever speak.

Q What is your real name?

A People have been calling me Minneford since I was five years old. My real name is kept for privacy, as I have already had blabbermouths speak my real name too much.
