    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.

Kim in New York

Kim arrived on Sunday 24th August and returned on September 5th. She  brought Rebecca (my granddaughter) with her, Rebecca’s boyfriend, Josh, and her friend Sue. Since Sue  and Josh had not visited New York before, Kim spent most of the two weeks showing them the wonders of the City. AND SHOPPING!

I did drive them out to Cold Springs one day via Bear Mountain and Christine drove them to Atlantic City for an overnight stay.

One of the bonuses of the visit is that I got my pictures hung and dusted and my light bulbs changed for free!
