    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! However, the story line has a surfeit of themes added; religious brain-washing, the effect of a bullying husband and father and lesbian freedom. None of these is fully convincing in spite of the excellent acting of the cast.

Bounce Lake 3

Each day brings an expectant dawn. There are no news bulletins to hear so the look of the sky is all important to us–whether to stay in and read or prepare to fish. Whether to contemplate a shower or wait for a warmer day . . . . .

 Now for the fishing . . . Or what there was of it this year. We spent many hours motoring up and down the lake with only one edible fish to count for the effort. And Susan caught it!
