I felt pretty low yesterday, as you no doubt guessed, and not much (if any) better today, but I’ve got to stay conscious for the tennis. Until today was quite well advanced there was going to be no way to watch it except on Google Prime Then Her Majesty’s Government went cap-in-hand to Mr Bezos – is that who I mean? – and now we are to have it on Regular Television and no doubt Mr. Bezos is a bit richer.


I wish it weren’t happening on so ill-omened a day.


Rachel, who is notoriously tender-hearted, wishes that they could both win since they are both so young. Neither was alive on 9/11/2001. I, however, shall be cheering unreservedly for Emma. Poor Mr. Djokovic often grumbles that we don’t love him as we should, and that’s certainly true this time.


My kefir is here, and it’s delicious.


  1. Yes the tennis is tremendous. I like both girls very much. See you there watching the match - after 1 p.m. Seattle time.

  2. =Tamar10:26 PM

    Enjoy your tennis! and, of course, the kefir!
    It has turned quite cool here. I am still acclimated to summer heat, and am hoping for a traditional pleasant late fall period of extra warmth.

  3. She won!! Hooray. Hope you enjoyed it.

  4. Extraordinary that 9/11 was twenty years ago... How different society was then. Things seem to change so quickly around us. Or am I just reaching another phase in life?
    On another note, has anyone knitted spiral socks without a heel?
    Hope rest and keffir and tennis are all beneficial for your recovery.

    1. I have made the spiral socks. I think it works for bed socks or baby socks, but didn’t find them comfortable for myself.
