A day at Linvilla with Rachel, Dakota, Kayla, Patricia, and someone.
In spite of Hurricane Sandy, the premier of "All Hallows' Eve" was held tonight at the Rebel Rock Bar in Philadelphia. The entire cast and crew was invited to attend the Mascarade Soirée. I decided to wear my mummy costume, but instead of a full head wrap, I needed a version that would leave my eyes and mouth operable so I could drive myself to the party and eat when I got there. I modeled my outfit after a web series character known as "Mummy Cop." Go ahead, look it up I hoped the AHE crew (all being so young) would know who "Mummy Cop" was. See for yourself. Here's a photo of me and the real mummy cop.

Sean's Lacrosse Game at Shipley - 9/23/12
On the sideline, Sean's a head smaller than his teammates. But on the field, he plays LARGE.
In this shot, Sean's about to throw a crosscheck that knocked his opponent out of bounds and nearly into my lap.

The Gutter Gurus
A visit with Beth
As soon as the Gurus left, I drove to Bala Cynwyd to deliver my DVD to Dan Gottlieb's producer. And afterward stopped by for a surprise visit to see Beth. We had brunch and, as always, pleasant conversation. Beth, at long last, is getting rid of some of her collectibles. She asked if anyone might like this old school desk and chair combination, complete with inkwell. I suspect David and Jenn may like to have it for Ki and Em. And then, before leaving, I took this photo of Beth's English garden.
Dinner and a movie with Kate

Woodman, spare that tree by AlanK - 5/4/12
Alan agreed (reluctantly) to sell his old Mercedes and today was the day the truck came to pick it up.
But just as the ramp was set in place to load it on the truck, Alan fell. No, the car didn't run over him.
He slid on the greasy ramp of the tow truck that was about to tow away his '84 Mercedes. Broken fibula and posterior tibia.
