I’ve been staying at my son and daughter-in-law’s for four days. I like doing that. It is a calm, cozy, clean home. Simone has rules—you don’t wear outdoor shoes indoors; You don’t cut things directly on the kitchen counter which tends to stain. I always learn new things when I stay with them. Being young and very intelligent activists, they are really plugged in on many levels. Not all levels are serious. Last night, I asked them to watch “Modern Family” with me cause I’d seen previews and it looked funny and got good reviews. Of course, I’ve watched other well-reviewed series that I didn’t think were good. I got slightly traumatized watching the Emmys this year and realizing I knew no one and had seen almost no series or specials. Missed “Grey Gardens” cause of doing the play on Broadway. I found “Modern Family” very likeable. I then watched “House” because my son, Troy (Garity) is doing an episode maybe tomorrow or a week from tomorrow. That should be good!! Richard likes to watch “Dancing With the Stars” which kinda shocked me till he persuaded me that the show has exposed many young people to ballroom dancing who might never otherwise have paid attention. Okaaaaaaay……..
Many sweet blog commenters have asked what has happened to my little dog Tulea since she hasn’t appeared in any blogs of late. So here she is. Looking up at me as I sit at the desk.
