    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.

Caribbean Cruise with S and C, (End)

George Town, Cayman Islands

At this port stop we all took a trip to a local beach.

In New York it was snowing!


from the first row of chairs one could dip one’s feet into the sparkling sea water . . . .


. . . . or jump right in! . . .


. . . . .


. . . .


. . . .


. . . . . while all this splashing around was going on, I relaxed in the shade of the beach umbrella, protecting my delicate skin . . . . and . . . .


. . . watching the competition go by . . .

During the rest of the vacation:

This is a selfie taken by Christine when she arrived back after a luminous deck party one night!


. . .this was a scene from her Party Bus . . . .


. . . as was this view . . .


And , finally. This is a picture of me looking for a local beer.

    Your photos bring back fond memories of a great trip. Boy, those beach shots of the sun, sand and warm water look inviting as I look out at the snow coming down here. We had a great time!

    • Thanks , Craig, I did enjoy our time together. And doubly thanks for the wartime ‘before and after’ pictures you sent me; I was struck by those of the southern coast of Britain– Sleepy Weymouth looks today exactly as it did 75 years ago, whereas skyscrapers and time-shares have sprouted in most of the rest of the world! Cheers! Ben
