DR Jane I finally got my mom to read THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. She didn't think that she would like it (she reads a lot). I told her she would like it. And she did. I think she is next at the library for the second book. And there were only like 11 people (with 6 copies) for book 3.

She finished the first book.

Crazy that I was number 11 a month ago when it first came out. And i had been on the list for like 6 months.

But i'm sure they've lent the book out to a lot of people in the last month.

I'm glad she is enjoying the book.  She is lucky the waiting list is now a short one.

I walked down Main Street this morning to get coffee.  Looks like almost all the stores will be open today.  I hope the employees get holiday pay.  I've never worked in a retail store, so I'm spoiled in having 5 (or 7?) holidays off each year.

I appreciated DR CP's story about Mr Shelley Berman.

Looking forward to rehearsal this evening....hopefully the cast members have looked at their scripts at least once over the last two days.....I have every confidence in them....they are a pretty good bunch.

But we don't have to worry about peaking too early.....to be sure.

I have no idea what that post means, but I am munching on a chocolate doughnut.

I don't know what it means either, but I like it

Ok, I need to go to the basement and continue the project I started yesterday.  I made a lot of progress on the organizing and realized it's not nearly as bad as I thought it was.   This is good news.

Thank you for the vibes for Kyle and his family. I talked to Mark this morning and he and his family are on their way to a hospital in Fort Collins which is where Kyle was eventually taken to (it is a 2 or 3  hour drive from where they all live). He will give me an update later. Evidently Kyle and Sugar (the police dog) were returning from a search and rescue situation when they were hit.

MBarnum, my prayers for friend Mark, his brother-in-law, Kyle, and to their entire family.  I imagine alcohol may have been a factor (with the other driver).

Well, I think I will watch and burn some episodes of SEA HUNT onto DVR. I did the same with episodes of HIGHWAY PATROL yesterday.

Mike, have you come across the episode involving the hydroplane race?  They used the actual footage of the Miss Thriftway hitting the Coast Guard cutter on Lake Washington back in, I believe 1959.

I took 5 hours to walk the street fair yesterday, I hope everyone in the retail business did well.   I'm starting to get to know some of the long time store owners (40 or more years on Main St.) and they all say the same thing.  That the new landlords are raising the rents by 2 or 3 times on new leases and forcing the long time stores to relocate, so the flavor of Ventura Main Street is changing.    People used to come here from all over the country to go to the book stores etc., and now the new stores are just any city chain stores no one cares about.

The same thing happened on Hollywood Blvd., during the 4 years I lived there.  The landlords didn't live in Hollywood and were clueless about what made the tourist come to Hollywood.   Now it's just supergraphics advertising covering all the buildings.  Yuck.

Need to wash dishes, take out the trash, do some yard work, watch a movie.

Take a walk down to the pier and beach.   Have not put my toes in the sand yet.

DR ELMORE I would like to see Christopher Fitzgerald and his soccer calves as Pseudolus as well.


That is why the name sounded familiar!

Good news, DR TCB......the '63 tail lights collected snow in the wintertime and the lights got covered up.....scary.

Hmm, Sam, maybe it has to do with you moving into the neighborhood?   ;)

I just made a disastrous but very delicious omelette involving cheddar, sliced ham, and salsa. I know what to do correctly the next time.

Jrand, it's not that I forgot, it's just that Jack is usually ensconced in conversation by the time I get there and it never abates.  He's always with the same group - Kevin Thomas, Marsha Hunt, and those folks.

I see that Playbill is having a close-out on Broadway merchandise.  There are some FINNIAN'S RAINBOW shirts and mugs included.

Had a call from dear reader Jeanne, who's feeling under the weather and asking if we can meet closer to her - I suppose we'll try that, although I don't want to get into any traffic situations today.
