LARRY NICHOLS NEW TOME A HOBO ODYSSEY

Image
**** TIMES SQUARE GOSSIP BOOKS A HOBO ODYSSEY An Extended Excursion Into History Complete With Its Own Serial Killer **** A Hobo Odyssey A writer of family histories, as well as an autobiographical account of life growing up in a southern textile town, Larry O. Nichols now confirms his status as an author to contend with in the historical thriller genre with his latest book, A Hobo Odyssey (Warren Publishing). A Hobo Odyssey is an accurate snapshot of a period in American history that depicts how common families dealt with poverty and hardship in the aftermath of World War I and the Great Depression that left many Americans jobless, homeless and starving; often forcing whole families to leave their roots and become vagabonds – riding the rails and stowing away on freight trains – in search of anything that would put food on the table. In the process, they often became hobos or drifters who were generally feared since desperation forces people to do desperate things. Based on true

**** MICKY DOLENZ MAKES STATEMENT TO TIMES SQUARE GOSSIP ON DAVY JONES DEATH **** Micky Dolenz We reached out to Monkee Micky Dolenz on the death on Davy Jones. Below is what he had to say.

The time we worked together and had together is something I'll never forget. He was the brother I never had and this leaves a gigantic hole in my heart. The memories have and will last a lifetime. My condolences go out to his family.”

KATHY POSNER BABY SITTING BABY MANCOWS?

Baby Sitting Kathy Posner My Mother loved me and my sister very much, but she was not fond of other people’s children. She called young people “fat squabs.” I never had any children. I never wanted to have any children because they would have gotten in the way of my life. I always wished my sister had decided to have children so I could have spoiled them and been the eccentric Aunt Kathy. I find it enjoyable visiting with friend’s offspring, but I am always glad when they go away. I am good for an hour tops with those less than 21 years of age—with a few exceptions. Given my history of not caring about little people, it is obvious that I probably was never hired to baby sit in my younger years. I wrote about my feelings for children last November so none of this should come as a surprise to anyone. Up until now, the only time I have been totally in control of a baby is when, years ago, my friend Stephanie Dillard had a doctor’s appointment at Northwestern Hospital, close to my

Jessica Biel Jessica Biel may have only just started to flash her engagement ring around town, but that doesn't mean the 31-year-old actress has kept her excitement about becoming Mrs. Justin Timberlake quiet. One of Biel's closest confidantes has been none other than her New Year's Eve and Valentine's Day film director Garry Marshall, who told Us Weekly he's spoken at length with Biel about her happy news. "We talk about it a lot. I hope it all works out -- they are terrific kids," Marshall told Us at Sunday's Night of 100 Stars Gala in Beverly Hills, Calif. of Biel and Timberlake. "I love them both. I'm happy for her." Getting engaged during a snowboarding trip in the Jackson, Wyoming mountains in December 2011, Biel and Timberlake plan to tie the knot next summer.
