    May20 My dear friend, Barbara, invited me to a play reading at the Roundabout Theatre Company. The play is by Greg Pierce and is entitled: The Decoys. the storyline has, as a base, the tale of the two escapees from a high-security prison some years ago. They engineered their exit with the help of electric tools supplied to them by a prison guard who was also the girl friend of one. I seem to remember that one died, somehow, shortly after the escape and the other recaptured. I do remember that the girl friend was arrested and charged. However,the main theme of the play seems to be the conflicted emotions of father and son. I found the reading, interupted by scene settings by the Director, somewhat rambling and difficult to follow. My short-term memory failed to reinforce my imagination.

Spring arrives!

Christine and I were strolling in Central Park last week on one of the bright days of this odd weather pattern we are experiencing, when we noticed a robin collecting worms. I cautioned Christine to be still so that we could see her fly up into the trees to feed her nestlings. To our surprise, she lifted herself about ten feet off the ground and landed on this apology for a nest!:

Disgraceful workmanship . . .


. . . she wakes up the kids . . .


. . . and up they pop . . . .


. . . the dominant one first . . . .


. . . proud mum . . . .


. . . feeding hungry mouths . .


Thinks, “That didn’t go far — I must get another beakful already!”

  1. Remember, mum is paying Manhattan rent. A fixer upper is the best Ms. Robin could afford.

  2. Great pictures. Yes, I’d be a proud mom too! Nereida
