Los Angeles, California
“Harvey” and Harvey- The Pooka and the Printer
Continuing the “Nothing Is As It Appears” surreal reality of Dr. George Hill Hodel I here present my readers with the eight-page chapter on my maternal grandfather, Charles Eugene Harvey his life and his death. (Published in BDA II 2014 ed.)  The facts as presented here bring to mind the tried and true adage, “Timing is everything.”

    Grandfathers have a way of communicating long after they are gone! 😉🌵

    Do you think anyone in your mother’s family found your grandfather’s death suspicious?

    Knowing what Dorothy Hodel already knew about GHH, I can’t imagine she wouldn’t have suspected something.

      Oh, I’m sure she KNEW or at the very least had to suspect it. But, as a “accomplice” to his OD of Ruth Spaulding she could hardly say anything to anyone and had to have been terrified that he might harm her children and herself. Only thing left for her to do was DRINK.
