    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.

Christine Gets Painted

On Halloween eve, Christine and I went to the NYC Museum to participate in the Family Party fun. I, at least, had been around a year or two longer than all the other party-goers  but we, never-the-less, enjoyed the little ones tirelessly jigging around in their costumes, arms and legs akimbo, while their mums and occasional dad watched with pride.

We arrived early, so, while waiting for the action to start, the face-painting lady started on Christine. The following evening we went back to the museum for the “Members Appreciation Night” (Hors d’oeuvres and Prosecco)–No children present!
