    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.

Susan’s equine adventure

During the process of selecting a suitable horse, one of those she was trying out threw her. She is now sporting four broken ribs and a right clavicle screwed together. Undaunted, she had me drive her to a horse show near her house in York, PA.

This is a before picture of Susan and a friend. She didn't have pictures of the horse that decided to play with its own friends rather that carry her around

Waiting to compete in the ring

Awaiting judgement

Judgement awaiting


Waiting in the wings

The board walk. Each competitor is required to show off its gait and traverse the wooden walk so that the judges can hear the hoofbeats

And after the show--repairs!
