    July 1  Saw “Napoli, Brooklyn” by Meghan Kennedy at the Laura Pels Theatre. It is based upon a real-life disaster, the surprise staging of which, is mind shattering!

None of these is fully convincing in spite of the excellent acting of the cast.

  1. Just back from a GCT trip to the Canadian Maritimes. Enjoyed it very much. Had been there on a camping trip with our young family in 1966 and much had changed, but not the beauty of the sites re-visited.

    Claire and I are pleased that we can still stay in touch with you and Ethel. In August we are off to Russia on a GCT river cruise.

  2. John and Claire. Great to have you back. Ben and Ethel
