    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.

  1. Gorgeous pictures, Ben! And, you are looking quite marvelous! Have a wonderful time in London. Love you! Bonnie

  2. I was very happy to see that the wrens have re-occupied their house on the huge pine-tree in the front of our house. They have been coming back for about 5 years now. Their busy-ness and chirping are very welcome and also much fun to see the new generation appear after the eggs have hatched. It is a little early for me to put up my humming bird’s feeder. When the vines on my back fence produce their huge orange blossoms the little hummers will be there and also to sip the sugar water in their feeder. I believe spring is here at last.

    John and Claire
