Fred Turner will always be "Mr. Tudball" to my "Misses-a-Wigginsa" and I will forever remember, with a big laugh, his
fashion comments directed to
and me when sauntering down the aisle to his office in the morning.
But, the defining "Fred Moment" for me is when I asked to take a three-month writing assignment in Lifestyle and he said "go for it Bon" and came in the following day with three books for me -
Amo, Amas, Amat and More,
bird by bird
On Writing Well
- and I knew that he meant it.
