    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.

Frederick Remington Museum

Staying overnight at Alexandria Bay upon our return trip from Perth, allowed us  the opportunity to visit the Frederick Remington museum in Ogdensburg, which is 35 miles further east. The  pamphlet,  provided by our motel,  listed the entrance fee as $4 for seniors which seemed too much of a bargain. And we were right. The receptionist pointed out that the pamphlet had been printed in 1997 and that the current fee for seniors would be $8! Whatever the fee, the museum is well worth a visit. A great deal of it is devoted to the rather homey-looking man himself and his friends and life style. Fascinating. There are, of course, many of his own sculptures and paintings to see as well as his collection of other artists’ work. Here are a few  pictures of his best-known pieces. Click on the picture for the best detail.
