Notes on May 2017

In May . . .

Hugo Smiling

. . . Hugo Cabret stole my smartphone.

He tried FaceApp and the results were something to see.

Button

. . . a children’s book predicted the future.

The Good For Nothing Button basically foretold the fidget craze.

Shel Brood

. . . I talked to Shel Silverstein.

It was a pretty one-sided chat.
