Up just after ten. Worked until three o'clock. Napped until five.
I thought Son Guy wanted to call his Mother, but he decided to put it off for a day. The general atmosphere on the street is troubling him, and me a little, too.
One of the things accomplished was putting up on Red Room my review of Ronald Neame's wonderful study of a Highland Regiment (and probably Alec Guiness's best performance).
Later, I trimmed my beard a bit, took a shower, and went by cab to Fieldworks in the Mission, where I took part in an hour's roundtable on the subject of Income Tax forms. When I came back, Guy was waiting for me on the street.
When at rest, my time was spent watching the last part of the six hour story of the HATFIELDS & MCCOYS. I must say that this series on the History Channel was well done, with actors like Kevin Costner, Bill Paxton, and Powers Boothe. One may speculate that the History Channel may be gradually replacing the miles of documentary footage it has shown about Nazis and World War II. When I was growing up, the Sunday supplements were full of real or imagined re-ignitions of this epic old feud between the Hatfields and McCoys. Looking around the World today, and even close to home, I wonder if we are much better off than those stillers down in Kentucky and West Virginia whom we used to cluck about.
Strange: No word from Son Jason today.
We shall soon be on the downhill run to the supposed Apocalyse, and so, I'm instituting a new feature:
SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE: Greece seems really on the verge of default, at last, probably dooming the Euro. The Dow was down well over 100 points today, 161 points to be exact, marking a 6% fall for the month. Bad News!
Macresarf1 would write no more this day.
