    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!

  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
