Captain’s Log 4,578
Rehearsals are going so very well! We have reached the stage of learning how to slap someone’s face without hurting that someone, falling onto furniture, “smacking” each other with tennis rackets, and slamming down phones on the first try. Grand fun. I have never seen a group more excited! It’s a lot of work for just two performances, but the process of rehearsal is also vastly rewarding. Oh dear, I said “vastly.” I sound so very proper.
So glad Big Sister Mia and I went to the new Trader Joe’s on Friday. It was an absolute zoo there yesterday. People were parking more than a block away. Friday was a total party atmosphere. Mia can get really crabby sometimes, so I asked her to pose with this.
Nice lei and crab meat. Why is it called “meat” if it’s seafood?
The black plastic tarp on the roof is keeping the skylight from leaking. The garage floor is dry. And I am so very relieved.
I am off to conquer this day. Working at the doctor’s office, getting some grant documents signed, rehearsal, and then taking Mia and Joanie, Hairdresser Exceptionale out for dinner. I also have to do some banking and buy bird supplies. There is never any rest. I do manage to read every day – even for just a few minutes. Last night was nice. I read for two hours and finished this book that is our club selection for February.
A serial killer who was active in 1985 is back! So is one of his victims who did not die. His modus operandi is to cut off their right hands and leave them in milk cartons on the steps of the police department. Five days later, the bodies are found posed serenely somewhere in the town. The handless survivor is not much help when he attacks again. Can the handless survivor’s daughter solve the mystery?
McMahon has written some excellent books. This is not one of them. It’s just plain icky.
Time to get this day started! Daylight is burning!
