As close as our family gets to Burning Man. ^_^
We are watching the series “Jeeves and Wooster” and it is very entertaining. My first introduction to Hugh Laurie was in the film “Sense and Sensibility” and then hearing his voice as the animated Beatrix Potter character Johnny Town Mouse. Funny enough Jason’s favorite show was “House.” Clover and I first heard Stephen Fry as the narrator of “Pocoyo” and maiki and I watched him in “QI” and other documentary shows (maybe I also remembered seeing him in “V for Vendetta” as well but my memory is not great). When maiki found out that the pair were in a show together in the nineties he encouraged that we give it a go. I am so very pleased that we did and now we know that they made the sketch comedy show “A Bit of Fry and Laurie” (which is brilliant) and participated in the Footlights at Cambridge together with their friend Emma Thompson! I have enjoyed the rabbit hole and hope to watch “House” and listen to Fry narrate all of “Harry Potter” for me someday.
Early birthday presents from aunt Joan. A Betsy Tacy Treasury and a dress like Laura Ingalls Wilder for the girl that is turning eight.
On Wednesday we walked down Virginia in Berkeley on our way to Emma’s class and decided to go and see if the whale mural was still there. Turns out there is a lot foliage growing all around the sea animals painted on the wall but we decided to take a picture with the whale to recreate this one that I took back in 2013. It is so very adorable to me and I am happy that Emma played along.
