It's freakin' huge in-person as you can see by the photo of my daughter holding it, they're set in a 2-inch deep shadowbox-style frame on floating mounts with a plexiglass cover.

    Or P to the layman. I believe the seller I bought it from is selling all of her Lettered Suntups (didn't see Misery listed). Go to harperwildeco.com

    I panicked when I didn't see the letter, until I remembered they were done in Morse code. The . - - . just looked like some kind of separator. (I also
    panicked again when the first page a googled for Morse code showed something different for letter P). Even though I already had the portfolio and
    cross to match my numbered, I went ahead and bought them to match the lettered.

    Six years ago I made an exchange with my friend Jim Carpenter for a new and flawless The Gunslinger 1st DJ. I didn't have a copy of the book at that moment but I knew that one day a good deal was going to be in front of me and I was going to need one, and that day took place ten days ago.
    Until today my collection didn't have a Gunslinger 1st. Lucky for me I was quick enough to pull the trigger on one very nice priced for today's standard.

    One more for the collection and one less to search for. I'm still missing The Maine Review mag. so if you have one or know of someone... I'm in. 😊

    Very cool, congratulations. I know it’s not King related but still a great P&J. When I saw this it reminded me are a related encounter I had. I’ll put it in spoilers so anyone not interested can skip it
    Spoiler:
    Several years ago my wife and I are at a local restaurant enjoying a round of drinks. The gentleman sitting next to us strikes ups a conversation and is telling us some funny stories and jokes. At some point I realize it is Tommy Smothers. We end up having a delightful afternoon and without allowing any argument he picks up our tab. A few months later I’m watching a John Lennon documentary and I am totally surprised when I see the part about the Montreal “Bed-In” and live recording of “Give Peace A Chance”. Guess who is sitting on the bed with John and Yoko playing guitar, the one and only Tommy Smothers. I’m thrill to see this but disappoint that I didn’t know about this before I met Tommy. I would have loved to have asked him about this iconic moment not only in music history but the peace movement.
    Fast-forward to a few years ago. My wife and I, along with another couple fell into a last minute dinner reservation at a very hard to get into restaurant due to a cancelation. When we arrive and are shown to our table we see Tommy. We briefly say hello and then I can’t stop thinking about my missed opportunity. A short time later Tommy comes over and sits down in the booth next to one of our friend, just to be funny. I’m trying to figure out how to ask him about Montreal and then I hear my wife invite him to join us for dinner. He declines because he is with a friend. We then invite his friend and point out that the 4 of us are at a table for 8, and 2 more would comfortably fit. Thankfully they decide to join us. After introductions; I grab my chance and recap our previous meeting and ask if he would be willing to tell us about the 1969 ‘Bed-In”. His eyes lit up and an incredible smile came across his face. Without hesitation he begins telling us about that day. One of my favorite stories about that afternoon was how John was so upset with Tommy. As Tommy explained it; he wasn’t playing up to John’s standards and John wanted him to get it together and quickly or he would need to leave. I’m happy to report Tommy got his act together and the rest is history. At the end of the stories Tommy just starts singing the chorus. It was truly incredible to hear an intimate recounting of that day directly from someone that was not only there but truly a part of it. A bit later in the evening and something odd happened; Tommy asked me if I wanted to arm wrestle? For some reason I agreed and kept thinking to myself “careful, you don’t want to hurt him”. Well the only thing hurt was my pride as I was schooled by an 80+ year old Tommy. Tommy was then kind enough to teach me a technique and I was able to somewhat redeem myself in a rematch. As the evening wound down Tommy and his friend were quietly have a disagreement. After Tommy left the table his friend shared that they were auguring over their bill. Tommy always pays and his friend was insisting that it was his turn. His friend prevailed and they both left a short time later. As we enjoyed the end of the evening we notice our waiter was nowhere to be found, we let the manager know that we would like to leave and just need to pay our bill. He smiled and said it had already been taken care of.
    It was, without a doubt, a night to remember.

    Here is a photo of the match.

    Donated the space in Bill's head to the Palestinians. It can't be any worse than Gaza. Can it?

    Great story!
    If there had been a vaccine for the Plague, I wonder how many folks bleeding from their orifices with prolapsed colons would have regretted not taken it sooner? Tommy
