Bill “The Giant” Grubb joins “The Taintorettes”

In 2004, the daughter of the late great Bill “The Giant” Grubb was casually browsing in a bookstore across the street from the New York Public Library when suddenly she saw her father, looking out from the past, grinning handsomely up at her from an Anne Taintor magnet.

I got a vacation!

Right up until February 3rd – less than a month ago! – I was absolutely certain that scuba diving was stupid, stupid, stupid… or at least extremely scary.
