    November 30. Susan, Christine and I saw two of three new Italian plays at the Cherry Lane theatre. I actually thought I had booked the third offer which was a Pirandello revival but we were all glad that we did not miss “The Journey I Never made” and “Story of Love and Soccer”. Both excellently translated and powerfully acted. The first is a thought provoking and somewhat unsettling portrayal of the current social turmoil and the second is modern thriller about corrupt sport and the triumph of evil over good. We were able to chat with one of the actors about the plays after the show. Before the show we ate lobster and oysters at the  “Fish” restaurant which was only two blocks from the theatre!

NY Day – Late Fall in the Park, etc.

I love the changing seasons and the infinite mood changes they bring to towns and countryside. Especially my countryside: Central Park. I could never get used to the permanent summer that many of our friends hanker after. I suppose it comes from being born in Britain which used to be a land of  very distinct seasons until global warming began to interfere with them.

Here are some random pictures taken during the last two or three weeks:

Ethel about to leap over the net in celebration of the end of the tennis season. An ambulance was standing by.

Late Fall in the Park

Fall plantings around the trees on 86 Street

Fall bargains on 86 Street. The line started the night before the shops opened!

Left behind! This chap is still suffering from an over-indulgence on Haloween.

And finally, here is a cute little bee to remind us that Spring is not far behind! Picture was sent by proud grandmother, Jenny orchard.

What's my name?
