women who drown

I'm wading into this mystery novel and so far I am lukewarm. Into
the Water takes place around the Drowning Pool (cute) at some
river somewhere in the (I think) midwest. But I will try to stay
afloat and paddle onward.

yes, worth watching

I was planning to work on a piece of writing last night while Husbando
watched Supermensch on the Flix®. I stayed for five minutes and then
I watched the entire thing. It's the true story of Shep Gordon, talent
manager and friend of many stars over the years. Fascinating life.
He pretty much invented the whole celebrity chef thing and has always
been best friends with Alice Cooper whom he also invented. An
entertaining visit to an unusual life.

scouts' dishonor

Every single day seems to get worse with this Trump idiot. Here he is
bashing Obama and Hillary in front of 6 million Eagle and Boy Scouts.
Hitler Youth comes to mind and I hate the whole horrible scene.

tonight we finish

Jason Bateman and Laura Linney move from Chicago to Missouri
(the Redneck Riviera) in Ozark. He has to launder money (much
like our Trump family one wonders?) for a Mexican drug lord
and there is a lot of scary stuff. This reminds me of Breaking Bad
because it can be dark and sinister and yet there is warmth too ~
and complicated family issues. Ten episodes in Season One. Go
ahead, get hooked...

we are what we are

We had such a fabulous time yesterday at the SF Playhouse where
La Cage Aux Folles was presented in all its glory and glitter.
The songs, costumes, dances, sweetness and sadness too. This
was a big time production on a small stage which makes it even
more impressive in my humble opinion. It's important to support
this kind of theater when tolerance and compassion are not
exactly supported by the national leaders.

another park, another scene

Yesterday in Precita Park ~ it's what I call Graffiti Appreciation Day and it's for
the under 30 crowd. Someone (who?) provides paint spray cans and these big
easels. There is food, beer, sunshine and not enough rest rooms, judging from
the signs on nearby homes begging people not to pee on their door step. This
is an annual event and seems to get bigger and noisier every year. But the
participants all have a great time so I try not to be too judgmental.

scene from a city

My friend Joe still works at the deYoung and he snapped this yesterday
on his lunch hour. I do miss Golden Gate Park and the surprises that
always seemed to await us there. Everyone appreciates this park and
it is especially wonderful with the sun and music from all over.
