"So Let it Be Written... So Let it Be Done"

The life and times of a real, down to earth, nice guy. A relocated New Englander formerly living somewhere north of Boston, but now soaking up the bright sun of southwestern central Florida (aka The Gulf Coast). Welcome to my blog world. Please leave it as clean as it was before you came. Thanks for visiting, BTW please leave a relevant comment so I know you were here. No blog spam, please.

Thirty-one and done.

Boston area television, weather man icon Dick Albert, a 31 year veteran of WCVB-TV channel 5, gave his last weather forecast on Thursday night, riding off into the sunset of retirement.

Albert came to Boston in 1978 and became a fixture on the local airwaves, becoming affectionately known as 'Dickie' by friends and fans. He put his personal touches on the weather forecasts, making the weather report interesting, if not fun to watch.

Albert also made it a habit to visit kids in schools and share his weather knowledge with them. I can remember him visiting my classroom once. It was when I had Mr. Mancini for math and science. I was in the sixth grade, which would have been 1980-1981, I believe.

Thanks for the memories, Dickie. Have fun doing other stuff.
