I just don't have any energy today, so I'm going to sit here like so much fish, make lunch and if I find some energy I'll do something, if I don't I won't.   I am going to watch the service from Joplin at 2:00 central time.

I had to come down to Toyland to use the scanner and now I will head myself back home for a lot of edits! There's a street fair on Broadway between 79th and 86th so I may later wander out for a bit and check it out.

I've been reading Congreve's THE WAY OF THE WORLD, which is funny, but - familiar as I am with 17th and 18th Century comedy dialogue - I'm still a bit lost in this play's machinations and I wish I were a little more familiar with the sexual innuendoes in the text.
Mrs Fainall is married to Mr Fainall, the villain, and the marriage had been arranged when, during her affair with Mirabell, she thought she might be pregnant
Fainall is married unhappily to Mrs Fainall, and in a heavy affair with Mrs Marwood; together he and Marwood are plotting the downfall of Mirabell and his love for Mrs Millamant
Marwood hates Mirabell because he rejected her advances
Mrs Fainall is still on friendly terms with Mirabell and helping him in his attempts to marry Millamant, whose fortune - until she marries - is under control of her old aunt, Lady Wishfort
Millamant and Mrs Fainall are cousins; Millamant is neice to, and Fainall daughter of, Lady Wishfort, who hates Mirabell because he once pretended to love her and got the horny old lady's knickers in a twist
Lady Wishfort is trying to marry her niece Millamant to her idiot nephew Sir Wilfull Witwould so she can control Millamant's fortune
Mirabell and Millamant are in a plot with Foible, Lady Wishfort's maid, and Foible's husband Waitwell, Mirabell's servant, to have Waitwell impersonate Mirabell's wealthy uncle Sir Rowland, who claims to be in love with Lady Wishfort, so they can blackmail her into giving Millamant permission (and the fortune she controls) to marry Mirabell. Fainall and Marwood have learnedof this plot and are determined todestroy Mirabell and Millamant.

That's the essential plot. I am still uncertain, in this play where everyone's having sex with someone else and often using it as a power play or wishing to have sex, exactly what is going on with the two leading characters, Are they or aren't they doing the dread deed? I'm sure it was clear to the original audience, butthere are too many ambiguous word usages, like "friend," which can mean as well a sexual partner, keep, protector. There's great rhythm to the language but there sure are a helluva lot of archaic words!

As you can see from the plot to THE WAY OF THE WORLD that sexual politics in the late seventeenth century haven't changed much since then. It all sounds like a typical soap opera plot from 2011.

Spencer and Frances did a nice Lux Radio Theatre together.  Spencer was supposed to be her co-star in "The Toast of New York," (at that point called "The Robber Barons"), but it ended up being Edward Arnold.

I'm having fruit and yogurt for lunch. It's too hot for oatmeal (my usual lunch on a Sunday because we have scrambled egg whites, a scone and jam and fruit, like a pear or strawberries for breakfast).

We will watch more Downton later this afternoon. We will be out for a while with errands, etc.

Watched the first episode of Downton Abbey last night.

Loved it.

Never heard of the show. What's it about?

It just gets better :)  We have watched 5 episodes so far.

Thanks to all for the vibes for Ernie - his condition remains the same......   I hesitate to call again today.  Linda said that she has my number in her telephone, so I shall await a word from her....

I also loved BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK.....Mr John Ericson and Miss Anne Francis are so very nice to look at.

Miss Francis told the story on a TCM filler, that Mr Tracy was a bit rough on her during some of their scenes - so that when she was driving him in the jeep - and he could only hold on with one arm.....she drove as fast and she could and hit every bump she could find....after which Tracy wasn't quite as cold to her.

Found this today.   Joes house is between the second and third EF5 marking on the map.  So, he really did live through the EF5 portion of the storm.  Man oh man.

Hello, everyone.

I hope BK has lost his Roscoe's love--at least momentarily--as we are NOT going to Roscoe's today.

Sunday afternoon greetings!  We came back from Lima posthaste, in order to see as much of the Indianapolis 500 as possible.  While not an auto racing fan overall, my Indianapolis roots made me a 500 fan.

Back from my two morning meetings.  The first was very informative and productive and has to do with this little personal project I'm working on, and the second was with Barbara Deutsch - I'm helping her with her book, her first - Grant is designing it (my recommendation) and everything is being sent to him tomorrow.
