    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.

Atlantic City–Short break

After all the surgeons’ cuttings and scrapings, I felt a complete change from the city would help the restoration. And, Sunday, the fifth of June happened to be Christine’s birthday.

Christine drove out of a damp NY City through some very heavy downpours to sunny Atlantic City only 100 miles south. After a walk along the sand we made reservations at the newly refurbished “Dock’s” restaurant, two blocks  inland from Caesar’s Palace Casino. There, we celebrated Christine’s birthday sharing a beautifully broiled lobster and scoffing four Bluepoints a-piece with appropriate libations.

It was 84 degrees on the following day so we took our chairs and books onto the beach and sat in the shade of one of the beach huts all day! Christine took only the time out to get us two large cold beers from the bar just inside the Tropicana. (Disguised in Mickey Mouse plastic cups).
