    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.

  2. Ben,

    Pictures with captions gave me chuckles. Cute and funny.


  3. Love the parade pics, Ben. I wish I could have joined you, but even if I were closer, there is no way I would have lasted that long on a narrow wall! Your stamina is truly impressive! It was wonderful to talk to you on New Year’s Day, especially hearing you describe your parade adventure while I had those very balloons paused on my TV. Love to you and Ethel. Bonnie
