Again, little to report. Archie came, late in the morning, and we got around the garden, not without difficulty (perhaps because it was later than my comfort zone). I listened to some podcasts in the afternoon, and moved the Evandoon forward nearly to the end of the penultimate stripe. If the BBC’s “Americast” is available world-wide – I think it is – you might enjoy it. They’ve been doing it for months, reporting on the election, and in the present extraordinary circumstances, they’ve kept it going.


Alexander, a good deal better mathematician than I am, says that there is a 75% chance of getting at least one boy from our two pregnancies.


I had a good Italian lesson this morning. My speech is slow and clumsy and ungrammatical, but I can say some things. My tutor had never read “maestro-Don Gesualdo” all the way through – just snippets, at school. Now we have moved on to Maltilde Serao, of whom I have never heard.

    You are still more active than I am. Good for you and Archie! It is sunny here.

  2. Julie Dyson I read today that the Scottish Parliament is discussing an investigation of Trump's financing of the Turnberry Golf resort. Coupled with what might come out of the District Court in Manhattan, he might have a busier "retirement" than he would want! I wish I could be more like you and make myself walk around the block - no garden available!
