RANDY AND BARBARA FITZGERALDFIND LIFE’S LAUGHS IN FLIGHTS OF FANCYAward-winning columnist Randy Fitzgerald and his wife, Barbara, get the humor soaring in a new book, FLIGHTS OF FANCY: Stories, Conversations and Life Travels with a Bemused Columnist and His Whimsical Wife, from Beach Glass Books. Flights, a $14.95 paperback, is a collection of columns and anecdotes shared by Randy – columnist for The Richmond News Leader, the Richmond Times-Dispatch and Boomer magazine – and Barbara – freelance writer and advertising/marketing expert. The couple long has been a favorite both in print and on the local lecture tour. Randy writes of the ordinary and the outrageous events in the life of one man's family, including an encounter with eight members of the British Royal family (yes, including the queen) on a London street and another with Willie Nelson in a Nashville parking lot. But did Randy also take his bride on a honeymoon to the Putt-Putt capital of the world? Did he flood his family's home to the tune of $13,000 in damages? And did Barb back the car over his Martin guitar? Did she get the couple's love story featured in Good Housekeeping magazine? Yes to all that and much, much more. Barb, his wife of 31, 46 or 56 years (it all depends on how you count) confirms and explains it all with her amused and amusing commentaries. Dozens of photographs and Douglas Payne illustrations enhance the stories. Flights of Fancy is perfect for your handbag or beach bag, anyone’s holiday stocking, your favorite end table or even the bathroom. Count on it being picked up – and the laughs to ensue.
