I wore my N95 mask until the very end of the walk.

Wednesday afternoon greetings!

First things first:  thoughts and hugs for DR George...

While the air is still "Very Unhealthy" and the warning is to stay inside, it sure beats "Beyond Index" when the index tops out at 500.

I am barely coping with the virus and the smoke, let alone this double dose that is too much  :'(

In a town hall meeting we had last week, someone mentioned that he wanted to go and throw out the plant on his desk that by all rights should be dead now. Turns out the cleaning staff has been doing their part to keep all of the plants watered and alive.

One of my best college friends whose lived in Cologne and coached voice at the Cologne Conservatory for the past 30 years before retiring called this afternoon and we had a nice visit. Gary wrote the notes on the German lieder for my Victor Herbert song collection.

He and Richard were fraternity brothers.

BK, on Sunday I posted your Youtube link to the Cast Recording List.  This morning, this showed up there:
It's archived on You Tube - which I prefer because you can watch on any smart TV without and special teckkie stuff.

 I reviewed all Bruce Kimmel's Lost in Boston CDs decades ago. Even if you don't watch the whole thing - you need to watch the first two numbers.  Now to find time to go back and watch previous ones.


Thanks for doing that.  Nice that ONE guy watched it :)  These people...

My question for ASK BK DAY:

Have you ever considered composing a concerto, fugue, or etude?

I have not.  Not talented enough or knowledgeable enough to do such things.  I did have a friend who played the oboe and I tried to write a piece for oboe and piano - in fact, I did write it, but knowing nothing about the oboe or its ranges, it was a joke.  Nice tune, though.

I got a reply from Suad.  She says there is a lag with these unemployment payments and she will get back to me.  Have you heard anything, DR ChasSmith?

Not a peep. One announcement I’d read referenced the 17th, so we’ll see if tomorrow brings any solid news.

You are so fortunate to have Suad. The couple of guys I got ahold of back in June were my own personal heros/guides in getting me into the program, but they’ve since cut way back on telephone access to anyone in our DOL — which is just barbaric, but that’s the way it is.

MEGA condolences to DR  George! So sorry to hear the news.

As for Neve, it clearly was her time to go and you don't have to worry that maybe you shouldn't have had her put to sleep. You two had many good years together. She was a lovely cat.

Your mother seems quite sensible and I'm sure will make good decisions regarding your father's care. I hope he will be comfortable.

Hugs to you, George. What a lot to take in! You know we'll all be thinking about you. Vibes to you and your family.

Hi, Jane. The post-op went fine and traffic to Beverly Hills was relatively light. I drove over myself rather than get a ride.

Great.  I am pleasantly surprised you were able to drive yourself to the appointment.  It sounds better than relying on a ride.

Re malaise:
I've often felt a let-down once a project was over. You'd think you'd be over the moon and ready to celebrate, but that isn't always the case.

I have a friend who's a telephone psychic. He has clients all over the world. He tells me that there are days when he's inundated with calls, and everyone seems to be feeling rattled at once. You'd think people would be calling with their own issues, quite independent of others, but his call patterns suggest otherwise. The other day was one of those days.

And, lastly, how could anyone not be affected by all the bad news?

I actually prefer to get a ride to many medical appointments. I get nervous when I have any sort of procedure coming up and would rather leave the driving to someone else. I'd planned to arrange rides for today, but was so put off by the taxi driver last week, both his rude impatience and his abstention from wearing a mask, that I chose to drive myself. Had this not been Covid, it might have been different. You just can't distance properly in a car. I'd like to see taxis retrofitted or redesigned to have a safe passenger area.

DR Jeanne, I could sure use a personal shopper along with a sherpa.  When I order from Fairway, they substitute things without asking.  My last order for sweet relish substituted Indian Relish.  What the hell is it?

Substitutions seem to be the biggest obstacle in delegating grocery shopping. DR Ginny's weekly Kroeger curbside arrangement seems to work well for her, but wouldn't work for me. I clearly need help and was very pleased to learn about Jason's business. He'll go to several stores in a row, if needed, and has a Costco membership, which we non-members can take advantage of. This could really help me out. I hope to keep him!
