“You’ve got to find what you love and let it kill you.” Kinky Friedman

Kinky Friedman passed away on June 27th, from Parkinson’s disease. He died at his Echo Hill Ranch in Bandera County, Texas. He was 79 years old.

I met Kinky Friedman in the mid 1990s at one of his book signings for “Armadillos and Old Lace.” My friend Tina and I sneaked away from our respective jobs and went downtown to meet the “Kinkster.” I don’t remember what he said to keep us all laughing, but he was amazing. And so was his book.

Armadillos and Old Lace was about a Texas sleuth who has a pet armadillo. It was one of 20 books he wrote between 1986 and 2006. As a mystery writer and crime novelist he infused his quirky sense of humor on every page.
