Wiki Fact of the Day

Did you know? The Professor of Gilligan's Island lives on Bainbridge Island. Now you know. I'll watch for him at Town & Country Market. Wikipedia also says that Bainbridge Island is the birthplace of pickleball.

movie

There is a new film about the life of Edith Piaf. Marion Cotillard stars as the little sparrow, she was in one of my favorite movies, Big Fish. Looks like it opens in Seattle June 22nd. As an aside, watching the trailer made me think, people everywhere should shout at each other in French, it sounds so nice and you couldn't be angry. Below is a youtube video of Edith Piaf singing.

for James and Susan

Dilemma

There is an iconography class in Portland in July, which is six days long. I've arranged the time off of work to go and have the $ to pay for the class. The problem is the $ doesn't include lodgings. The other problem is that it is the same week as our parish feast day, and now it looks like our dearly beloved bishop will be with us and my good friend James will be tonsured a reader. So I am at a loss as to what to do. The iconography class is taught by Father and Matushka's good friend from New York. I have been wanting to do this for a while and this is the first opportunity that has come up. Any suggestions?

Wedding

My dear sister got married Sunday, June 3rd. It was such a joyous time. It was wonderful to have family from all over the country together for the weekend. I took so many pictures, of course, which can be seen here. My only complaints would be that I ended up with a bad cold Saturday night, which I still have, and that there wasn't enough time to see everyone I wanted to, like the dear Plews and their new little one.

wedding

I fly to California in less than 12 hours! I left work after midnight after an awful day, and picked up my bridesmaid dress on the way home. It is still hard to imagine that I'm going to California for my sister's wedding. She's such a sweet and lovely woman, but I still remember my cute baby sister. I still need to finish packing and try to sleep a bit. The one time I can't sleep, before a flight. I have to make sure everything is ready.
