Family problems...

A woman I grew up with, Gloria, called--via an intermediary. Nice to get back in touch with someone from my distant past She actually babysat for me! Took me to Palisades Amusement Park. Her brothers, her parents, and mine were friendly.

Snakes on a Plane wasn't half bad. Slick, intelligent. (I like scary movies.)

Mr and Mrs Smith was also slick and intelligent. The critics are sometimes too supercilious. I had thought the film would be atrocious...but I was amused and absorbed.

Very sleepy today. Had to stop driving. Am I getting ill?

Going to Toronto next week, just for a visit--for a weekend. My son is determined to leave the country--and Toronto seems to be a good place to settle.
