Patchett tells us the story of a recently retired woman visiting her daughter living in a Swiss Zen center. Q&A and stuff here.
We run out of tape. I go to Fred Meyer, the place where I probably spend 80% of funds. Because they have everything. But you know what they don’t have? Tape dispensers. So, being out of tape, and needing tape, I once again purchase those plastic not-reusable clear tape dispensers.
Repeat. For nine years.
Free at last!
My computer has been out of commission for two weeks now. And, despite having it “repaired” by a national chain of tech help, it is still not working right and will have to be repaired again. Which means another week will pass without my vital electronic helper.
Once I regain possession of a completely working computer, I will return to blogging. You can look forward to:
- The rest of the August posts.
- Multiple posts (I believe there are six) about the Oregon State Fair.
- Vacation pictures.
- Blog post #3000.
- More movie reviews, (though not many more, as I haven’t had much time for movies, either.)
- More book reviews (so far October has been a Smart Slut extravaganza. Thanks, Heidi Joy Trethaway!)
- More of the this-and-that that makes this blog go.
This production also had some excellent musical interludes like this one set to the Theme from a Summer Place where the attendants advanced their romances via sports.
The prince and his attendants disguised themselves as Muscovites to court the ladies. These Muscovites come as Russian-style gangsters. The ladies also have disguised themselves and come prepared for the men. There is more wooing to the sound of Hernado’s Hidaway.
After that it was too dark for photos, but know that it all ended somewhat happily ever after. I find this play ends rather abruptly.
Yet another excellent evening with PAE.
