I’m really not trying to rely on other bloggers for all my posts, but one this from Letters of Note is too good not to share. It isn’t what I expected it to be–it’s even better.

I was hoping to learn that the little boy grew up to be someone famous. But a touching story anyway.
It’s possible the boy grew up to be a better someone than he would have been if Hitchcock hadn’t given him that photo. I like to think so, anyway.
What a great letter! I wonder how Mr. Hitchcock felt when he learned about the impact he had on that child. My parents used to tell a story of one day when i was a child and had breakfast with Alfred Hitchcock in a hotel we were staying in. I’m don’t know if it really happened but it was a nice story anyway.
That’s a wonderful story. I can see parents making up a story about Captain Kangaroo, but not about Alfred Hitchcock. It must be true.
A sudden thought–I can now say I’ve had dinner with someone who had breakfast with Alfred Hitchcock. 🙂
