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.

Nothing like that so far. but one episode does have Robert Conrad in tight pants. Just as dramatic, I imagine.

We've had a delightful day celebrating Rob and Mary Linda's engagement with lots of relatives (mostly hers) and friends.  My sister and her husband came from Grand Blanc, MI, and I was very pleased that they made the trip.  It was nice to visit with them.  The prospective maid of honor and 3 of the bridesmaids were also there.

Mary Linda's mom had hoped for most of the party to be out in their beautiful yard, but it's so hot and humid that they moved in all inside to the air conditioning.  That meant my spending about 6 hours in the company of their 5 cats  :P   I did start taking Zyrtec Saturday and, so far, my allergies haven't flared up too bad.

When I read about things like Kyle's accident, DR Ann's discomfort, and DR Cillaliz's family angst, I realize that itchy eyes and a scratchy throat are pretty minor.  Vibes to all!

After the engagement party broke up, we took 2 vehicles out to see Grand Ledge Opera House, the venue that has been selected for Rob and Mary Linda's reception.  It wasn't open, but we walked all around the outside and peeked in the windows.  Everybody else went back to ML's parents' house for the night, and Richard and I took a drive through Lansing to see the State Capitol and East Lansing to see Michigan State University.  Our route back to our hosts' home took us past the church where the ceremony will take place.

Thanks, Jane.  Tomorrow, we'll pick up Rob about 9:30 or so and head back to Ohio.  Our route home takes us past Ann Arbor and we may swing through town, just to have a look.

'night!

The behavior of the woman in the bookstore is all too common. I faced it a lot last Christmas with the last "Twilight" book, which was not in paperback, except in Spanish. And the argument, of course, was, "If it's in paperback in Spanish, then ..."

Hard to explain to people who won't listen that the Spanish paperback cost more than the hardback English.

Loved the story, DR CP, about Shelley Berman. I know of him largely through "A Family Affair" and would have liked to see more of him.

Today, all that I've been doing is watching some TV, burning a couple of DVDs and not much else.  I also have a bit of a headache. :P

I haven't left my house at all...but I did take a shower. :)

Took a break from HIGHWAY PATROL and SEA HUNT and instead began watching some ROUTE 66. George Maharis and Martin Milner are both fantastic actors, but so far the stories haven't really done much for me. I skipped to the last episode on the set, which co-starred Whitney Blake and Carol Ohmart, and that one I enjoyed.

In fact, George Maharis is a much better actor then I was expecting him to be. I need to see more of his stuff.

Actually, I guess I did see more of his stuff when he did that layout for PLAYGIRL magazine back in the 1970s...but that wasn't really what I had meant.

Home after a long day, but things need to be done.  Did get to listen to disc two of Promises Promises and what fun that was.  I probably should have listened to disc one first as I don't remember the out of tune parts as well as I thought I did.  Also, the hidden track was awesome.

How about a page 8 George Maharis dance.

My siste Sue had a big crush on him back in the 60s.
