    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.

Bermuda Break

For, perhaps, the tenth time, Christine and I took a cruise to Bermuda. Partly as a respite from the long hours that Christine has been putting in in her Job at Fox’s and partly the lousy weather we have been having recently. This time, Luba (Christine’s younger sister) was able to join us. As it happened, the weather was not good by Caribbean standards; it rained a couple of days and the 80 degree sun was tempered by a cool wind; nice for walking and sheltered sun-bathing, but the water was too cold for the ladies to swim in. Here are a few pictures:
