    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.

Bahamas on the “Jewel”

We needed a break from the trauma of Ethel leaving her apartment after more than thirty years! The memories of her  married life there and of all the many friends who had come and gone, took their toll. A week’s cruise on  the NCL “Jewel” to the Bahamas just fit the bill. We returned thoroughly recovered and ready to face the closing. Our  close travel friend, Sandy, joined us at the last moment and her companionship completed the  enjoyment.
