Leonard at the Library

In remembrance of Leonard on his birthday this year, I donated a copy of Fascinating: The Life of Leonard Nimoy by Richard Michelson to my local elementary school library!  I happened to donate it on Leonard’s actual birth date; March 26th, which made it extra special.  The librarians were very pleased with this beautiful book with its loving illustrations by Edel Rodriguez.  It tells about young Leonard grew up in Boston, discovering his ambitions to be an actor and photographer, and how his faith influenced a very important part of Vulcan heritage.

I signed the book to the students and urged them to follow their dreams as Leonard did, and of course to Live Long, and Prosper!  I hope the kids will enjoy it, and that Leonard’s legacy will live on with them ❤   You can buy a copy here.

The librarian was delighted!

My inscription to the kids.

I hope the kids will be inspired by Leonard’s story. (me with the book)

 

 

My Weekly Spock -Evil Spock on Spring Break!

Hey, even bad guys need a day off!  I had fun manipulating this candid picture of Leonard during his run as King Arthur in Camelot (1973) into a relaxed Mirror Spock!  Maybe he’s off picnicking with evil Nurse Chapel... 🙂

Happy Easter and Passover Everyone!

And Happy Spring too! I hope the snow’s all gone wherever you are! ❤

Remembering Leonard Nimoy on his birthday with fan art. (pictures)

Remembering Leonard on his birthday is always a little sad, but it gives a moment to remember his incredible life and just what a fine person he was. This year, I thought I’d honor his memory with some of the wonderful fan art that’s been produced over the years.  A happy heavenly 87th birthday Mr. Nimoy; you inspired many works of love ❤

Happy 87th, Bill Shatner!

Oh Captain our Captain! Bless you on your Birthday, Bill, and many many more! ❤

Me and the good Captain at Star Trek Mission: NY in 2016. I was dressed as Dr. Miranda Jones and Bill held my faux red rose with me! He was probably wondering “What the Hell?’

Separated at Birth: Star Trek Lookalikes Part III !

Note: I added Kelinda (Barbara Bouchet) who looks even more like Celeste Yarnall! (Martha)

Here’s my most recent list of Star Trek look-alikes.  Can you think of any more? You can see Parts I and II here and here. 🙂

My Weekly Spock: That Darn Hat! (Photos)

If you’ve ever seen Baffled with Leonard Nimoy and Susan Hampshire you might have noticed Nimoy wearing this brown bucket hat in a couple of scenes:

Well, I always thought it look a little goofy on him, but when I found out the history of the hat, it made me laugh, so here goes:

The hat wasn’t part of  his wardrobe, but a piece owned personally by Nimoy; or  so it seemed, since he wore it in public a year later while working on his stage performance in Fiddler on the Roof

But wait! Turns out Nimoy was not the original owner!  It belonged to singer Pat Boone!   According to legend,  during Leonard’s recording career, he was using the same studio as crooner Pat Boone.  At one point,  Leonard spied the hat and took a fancy to it.  So much so, it went home with him…

Here’s the photo Pat wearing the hat on a TV appearance in the early 60’s:

 

 

 

 

 

And Leonard must have loved it a lot (sans original feather) for he still had it in 1984 during a college appearance! 🙂  Did Pat give it to him? Did he ever get it back?  The world may never know.
