Here’s the wonderful mystery pilot Nimoy made in 1973 — A shame it didn’t become a series, it would have been terrific!
Here’s a beautiful watercolor of Spock by Jonathan A. Reincke on Deviant Art. I love the splatter of paint around the edges.
I have some exciting news! I am offering you a challenge!
As you all know, our friend and TOS Guest Star Celeste Yarnall has been battling a rare ovarian cancer. Her cancer fund is almost to the half way mark of $25,000. As I write this today, she is heading in for more chemo. <3 Celeste needs our support and prayers, but the best thing we can do is send donations to her fund to help pay the medical bills her insurance won’t cover. I came up with this idea recently, and when I messaged it to Celeste, she happily approved! 🙂 So here’s the challenge:
If We, all the readers and subscribers to trekkerscrapbook, donate at TOTAL of $1,500 or more for the cancer fund, Celeste Yarnall will grant me (and all of you) an EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW for this site! This would be a wonderful opportunity to hear what it was like to guest on so many classic 60’s series (Bonanza, My Three Sons, The Man From UNCLE, It Takes a Thief, The Wild Wild West,) and OF COURSE the classic Star Trek episode The Apple! Not to mention what it was like to work with Elvis Presley! And even better, If we raise the money, I will also select 3 questions from your submissions to add to the interview!
HOW TO DONATE TO CELESTE’S FUND AS A TREKKERSCRAPBOOK MEMBER: (It’s Easy!)
1) Go to Celeste’s Cancer Fund at http://www.gofundme.com/kvo9xs
2) Click on the Donate Now button.
3) Enter the amount, your name, e-mail, etc. but MOST IMPORTANTLY:
4) In the COMMENT section below, enter the words: “TrekkerScrapbook” (and a personal note if you like). This way I can keep track of how many members here have contributed and how much we have achieved. I will post updates here regularly.
5) Hit ‘Continue’ button, finish payment.
Kids, I really want this interview, so let’s make this happen! I know any extra money made will help Celeste and Nazim greatly! Hope to see those dollars add up soon!! Please donate today; the sooner we can raise $1500, the sooner we can get the exclusive interview! And start thinking of what questions you’d like to ask Celeste!
Thanks So Much, Therese Bohn 😀
Celeste posted an update on her fund, and we are still inching closer to the halfway mark! I truly hope this can be reached soon so the full $50,000 can be raised! She gives a nice shout-out to Chemo-Beanies who supplied the gorgeous head-wrap she wears in this beautiful recent photo:
I want to give a little shout out to a wonderful company whom I discovered while I was a patient at my local hospital. I had had my 8 hour cancer surgery and first chemo round there and one of the nurses showed me that in the conference room on the oncology floor a wonderful company had donated some very stylish and comfortable head wraps. Hair loss is inevitable with chemotherapy and yes there are wigs but they are not comfortable all the time. Chemo-Beanies has come to the rescue. Please check out this wonderful company and their foundation and support them if you can if the spirit moves you. https://chemobeanies.biz/
Celeste, we’re thinking of you always and sending healing thoughts (and preferable donations) Here’s my latest little ‘toon to promote the fund — now with 100% more Elvis!

This is probably the tastiest tribute to Leonard Nimoy out there — a pancake meticulously formed to become Mr. Spock! I bet Leonard would have loved this-and ate the whole thing! Excellent work by pancake artist Nathan Shields!
To see how this marvelous and most illogical creation was made, click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyDAUIGqzOw
Going through my lovely new Nimoy Tribute magazine from my sister, I came across this amazing picture that I’ve never seen before:
The Caption says it’s Sandy Nimoy, Leonard’s first wife, but to me it just doesn’t look like her! The face and hair seem wrong – especially since we’re more accustomed to seeing her look like this:
She also isn’t wearing a wedding ring. I’ve seen other pictures of Sandy with Leonard on the set (taken later) But this just seems off! Winston, you know everything Nimoy, is this really Sandy?
UPDATE: Winston just confirmed my suspicion that the lady in the first picture is NOT Sandy Nimoy (I really didn’t think so)– So who the heck is she? It’s not his ‘Girl Friday’ Teresa, it ain’t Phyllis Diller — Who is it? (and I wish I were she!)
