This is the view here today. (The other side is the race track) It will look pretty much like this until November. You can only exit in the rear of the building where the dumpsters are. In my case, I get picked up there, which means people have to dodge delivery trucks to get to me.
This goes on for about ten blocks. People I had dinner with Friday night suggested that the management should have warned me this was going to happen, but truthfully, I probably would have rented it anyway because I was so eager to be gone from where I was. A few people are suing the city though, claiming that it is unsafe for anyone with disabilities. And it surely is. The narrow path we have left to us is potholed and there is nothing to grab on to.
A mix of weather this week but more good than bad. I used my gym here finally but had to listen to Fox News while I treadmilled. Awful The stack of WSJ on the table in the lobby was my warning. But I had a book on my cellphone to listen to, thank goodness.
HAPPENING was a shot from the past to the future. It's a French film about an abortion in France in 1960. Terrifying to think this sort of thing is coming very quickly to a neighborhood near you. Also watched three films directed by Billy Wilder, LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON, THE MAJOR AND THE MINOR and ONE TWO THREE. My favorite will always be THE APARTMENT. Megan had discussed lesser Wilder films on a podcast and although I had seen LOVE, I watched it again too.
Watching HACKS, BARRY, THE STAIRCASE, UNDER THE BANNER OF HEAVEN. Can't watch PBS until I figure out why my Passport is not working with the new Roku.
Reading a book about Billy Wilder as you may have guessed. CONVERSATIONS with Cameron Crowe.
I lost a hearing aid. It will cost me $2500 to replace and I am sick but the combination of mask, glasses and a hearing aid has always been troublesome. It has gone flying a dozen times. I sent away for masks that have elastic rather than go around the ear. But I doubt that will completely solve the problem because I know on my knobby head the elastic will slip and end up at my ears.
What's up with you?
