We were on Fireside, WMEX in Quincy, Massachusetts. Hosted by Jim Callahan and his beautiful (in every way) wife, producer, and co-host Nancy, we had a great time. Lots of laughter. Garry had the opportunity to tell a whole bunch of his celebrity anecdotes to a new audience and he sparkled, as always.

Again, he heard the familiar refrain: “You should write a book!”

He really should.

All the pictures were taken with the Pentax Q7 and (mostly) the f2.8 5-15mm “standard” zoom.

    1. I can find out. I know they have a strong presence on Facebook. I will check with Nancy. We just got back from my granddaughter’s HS graduation and we are pooped. HOURS of the worst speeches EVER and the worst delivery — the off key band and singers who aren’t good enough to earn their own shower. I’ll send a note to Nancy. If there IS an archive, I’d like to hear it too.

  1. Writing a book is a great idea! It records a certain period of time in which we played a part and it would be a shame to lose it. Why don’t you go for it Garry. Peter did – “Memoirs of a Hayseed Physicist” by Peter Martel.

    1. We have ALL been urging him to write. At least I’ve gotten him to write a few posts. He really should. He has great stories to tell. But you know, you can lead a horse to water?

      Is your husband’s book available anywhere? Send a link??


      1. Hi Marilyn, just google Peter Martel Memoirs of a Hayseed Physicist. You can order it on line of most books stores can get it for you. Parts of it are on line for free.


          1. Thank you so much. His book was sited in the former President Jimmy Carter’s memoirs because he came up to clean up a spill at Chalk River Nuclear Laboratories many years ago.


      1. I think you will get a big kick out of it, Garry. Also, I think you will be documenting a certain period of time in your profession with some very unique experiences. I can’t wait to read it.

    1. Garry needs a ghostwriter. He needs to be able to talk and have someone else do the organizing, formatting, etc. That would be me, but I don’t know if a wife should do this kind of project with a husband. It is perilous. Also, there are things he would NEVER tell me because I’m me.

    1. Right now, I’m collecting the posts he writes. That’s something. But ultimately, if it’s going to happen he needs to sit down with an editor/co-writer and get it organized. And I don’t think I’m the right person.


    2. By jove, you’ve got it! Take all the blogs/interviews I’ve done and do a thread with some back stories. Thanks for the reminder.


    1. Garry “met” the show’s host on Facebook. He had heard of Garry, but they had never met. Which is funny because I was sure Garry had met and/or interviewed everyone in Massachusetts and at least half of the rest of New England.
