lunch and a movie



I had lunch with my friend Rhonda and the Hope Chapel Dean, Trygve Johnson. Rhonda arranged this so that we could meet him and talk about him doing an AGO meeting.

He looks a bit like Jason Jones (Semantha Bee’s husband).

I don’t think I was able to make sense to him when we conversed.

Rhonda said that sometime my connections from idea to idea can be difficult for people to follow.

Also that I talk a lot.

All true, I’m sure.

We watched “The Story of Mankind” last night. It was fascinatingly bad.

Three Marx brothers were in it.

Dennis Hopper was Napoleon.

Vincent Price was “Mr. Scratch.”

The movie was in color. Elizabeth googled it and it turns out to have been the Marx brothers last screen foray.

Vulture numbers are diminishing due in part to the fact people who are dying are using a tylenol like drug for pain which then harms the vultures when they eat them. I love this practice of having vultures destroy human corpses.
