November BluesSaturday, December 01, 2012
Of course it could be a seasonal disorder. Today Rosemary said, “I cannot wait for this month to be over.” I pointed out to her that today happens to be the first day in December. She smiled and this is something that Rosemary does not do too often. I will have to rent Sullivan’s Travels and have her see the ending with convicts in a church watching a “picture show”. They all roar with laughter at a cartoon featuring Pluto.
Tomorrow I am going with the two granddaughters to see the Pirates of Penzance, a Vancouver Opera production at the Queen Elizabeth. There may be a difference between Walt Disney’s Pluto and a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta but I am sure that the smiles of Lauren and Rebecca will still be the same. I propose we banish November from our calendar.
