another marvelous party

Bobbie and Philip threw another of their marvelous parties with a great mix of people, delicious food ~ including corned beef and cabbage in celebration of St. Patrick's Day ~ and splendid conversation among the 20-plus guests. More on that tomorrow. I am posting this tonight to get in under the every-day-write wire. Besides that, I'm tired and need to get to bed.

Just finished an interesting book: The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. Actually it was quite harrowing; an autobiography about her childhood growing up in, among other places, Welch, West Virginia. The ability of children to flourish despite parents' best efforts is remarkable.

Opera was absolutely wonderful. New modem meant no fade-outs, no quits, no lags. That whole thing was a fine idea.

I really appreciated The Glass Castle too, some kids are so tough.
