So - TOD: I liked Hawaii 5-O and Magnum PI for the Island locations and big waves. Columbo, of course... some episodes of Murder She Wrote (both Levinson and Link... I miss Richard Levinson, may he rest in peace...). Boy, oh, boy, I don't quite remember individual episodes right now - how senile!

Tonight ABC is broadcasting the pilot of GREY'S ANATOMY in its new 9 p.m. Thursday timeslot. So, because I have so many friends who are fans, I'm going to give it a try tonight. There is another episode immediately following.

Good morning, all!  The past 16 hours have been a whirlwind of ugly emotions and resentment, and a move.  We are truly in KingLearLand now:  my father in the late 1980s dvided the company he had founded in 1965 between my two brothers.  I had turned down his offers to work for the company and moved to New York in 1979 while my brothers went to work for him.

I'm no Cordelia, but I've always been the one my father came to when my brothers were in conflict, and I have no resentment toward either brother.  I've always loved them both and I'm proud of their accomplishment.  Last night, after my father and I had reconciled over Sunday's disagreement, one of my brothers and his wife decided to let me know how much he resented my father's insistence that his estate, which is fairly large, be divided three ways since most of the estate was generated by a company I had never sweated blood over.  My sister-in-law also turned on my dad to let me know how much of his living expenses in thr past 12 years were covered by the company he no longer owned.  I am still reeling by my brother's insistence that I am entitled to nothing of my father's estate, and boggled that such anger and resentment exists within them.  

My father, since then, has removed himself from their house and care anfd is now moving into the home of my brother and sister-in-law where I am a houseguest.  Except for the knights, it sounds like Lear to me.

Today, I will make an effort to restore peace between my brother and me.  I'm sure he'll claim it was too many beers and too much stress.  I will accept his apology and return to New York to lick my wounds.

Oy!

DR Elmore, family can be incredibly loving and incredibly trying. I'm sorry you're having to deal with so much of the latter. Kudos to your patience and fortitude.

I engaged in a little PTYALISM in the dentist's chair the other day.  The technician said it was perfectly normal.

PennyO, Jeanne didn't go to our school - she lived in Culver City.  Neither of us remember how we met but we met in the Summer of '62 because she has something that says we saw The Miracle Worker (the film) in July of that year.

Interesting that the very (to say the least) controversial new number written by the Welches for the TV version of ONCE UPON A MATTRESS was nominated for an Emmy for music and lyrics.

Elmore - I'm confused about something from an ethical perspective.  While your brothers were sweating over the business, weren't they being properly compensated for their work and living financially secure lives because of the business?  I'm confused by their resentment over your father's wishes to divide his estate three ways.  You gave up the security in order to pursue a much more risky career, but they did get a certain amount of security for their hard work.   Or am I misunderstanding something here?

There you are!  I imagine they thought DRELMORE was living on Easy Street in the Millionaire's Hotel in NYC living the glamourous Theatre Life....  8)

I am aghast that that AWFUL thing that purported to be ONCE UPON A MATTRESS was broadcast let alone NOMINATED for an award.  :P

The fact is that Elmore's Father's estate is HIS estate. Whether that estate was largely derived from his business or not is irrelevant. One assumes that whatever came from the business that enlarged his estate, he was entitled to, those were the business arrangements, and that whatever he has earned from what was his original business the sons have no propriety claim on just because they now run the business.  The business may no longer be his, but his estate belongs to him.  He can divide his own private monies and property anyway he sees fit.
