    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!

Three Peaks Challenge

Well done Lucy!

Gillian is so proud of her daughter, Lucy’s, accomplishment!. She sent me this note and pictures which I am delighted to post. Here’s what she says about it:

“Ben. Pleased to confirm that Lucy has achieved the 3 Peak challenge with the Group supporting the Charity, “Fighting Blindness”.  She climbed Mount Snowdon on Tuesday, Scafell Pike on Wednesday and finally she reached the top of Ben Nevis at 1 pm today!  She also helped guide blind and partially sighted people on the 3 Peaks too. So proud of her – it is a wonderful achievement! ”  Here! here! (Ben)

Footnote: Such are the ironies of this lottery we call “life”, Gillian tells me that her other daughter, Debby, (Lucy’s sister) was declared legally blind in June!
