Mother Said

Mother Said My Mother said you need to read more than Comic books. I know I’m not the only one. Some of everything that I read from my childhood to adult has been made into movies. Like Hollywood had nothing better to do then to follow me around, every time I Pick up a book. Someone made a phone call. What is he reading? The Avenger’s X-men and Dr. Strange. My Mother who was an English Major, said Bobby since you hate English in school, you'll probably end up being a poet. But you need to read more than Comic books. In 1968 I was in the 5th grade at public school No. 6 when my teacher Mr. Gamble read the Lord of the Rings to the class. I surprised my mother When she caught me reading the Hobbit. Grow up and I joined the Army, got sent overseas on hardship tour. Pulling guard duty, I had a lot time on my hands. So, I read the books of Tom Clancy. Hollywood found my reading list. Hunt for the Red October, Clear and Present Danger Patriot Games. Everything that I read from childhood to adult has been made into movies. But I’ve also read books on sensual massage, And you should know, they are X-rated movies.
