Remembering Roger Moore

October 14, 1927 - May 23, 2017

English actor Sir Roger Moore died Tuesday.
I remember him best as James Bond.
Though he may have starred in the most Bond films,
Sean Connery remains my personal 007 favorite.

Eric Close Quotes

Sometimes I think I was guided to live at the foot of the Verrazano Bridge for a reason

The energies always feel right ... I'm home.

Do you remember the days before cell phones when we searched for a pay phone ...
or even further back in the Superman days of phone booths?
I couldn't resist taking pics of the fate of these side-by-side phones.
The one on the left is just a face with nothing inside.
The one on the right is totally stripped down with a souvenir.
