My in-room coffee maker comes with Starbucks coffee. Yes! This is what I need. Most coffee supplied in hotel rooms is rather bland with not-quite-enough punch for me in the AM. The housekeeper cleaning my room this morning even gave me an extra pack for tomorrow morning. Her suggestion, not mine…perhaps I look slightly sleepy?
Had a good night’s sleep on this great mattress…I tried to stay awake through the end of the Phillies/Dodgers game, but in the end, I gave up. It was obvious the Phillies were going to win. I am in the midst of Philly-fan country here, so everyone is quite happy with the outcome. I must admit that I struggle a bit with this one. I lived in Philadelphia for 5 years and have fond, fond memories of that time. So my instinct is to cheer for the Phillies. However, since it looks more and more like the Yankees are going to win the AL, I had this fantasy of the Dodgers vs. the Yankees in the World Series, with Joe Torre back in Yankee Stadium (the new Yankee Stadium that is.)
Have you seen these?
They are pewter charms that are attached to your cell phone. I had no idea that these existed. My sister, being younger and therefore hipper, knew about them and bought each of us one at Rhinebeck. I let her take care of attaching it. It is a little lamb – I’ll give you a close-up.
Finally, for all you pink lovers – here is the pretty paper covering the toiler paper in my bathroom.
Last night’s performance of WOZ was delightful. Lots of kids in the audience, laughing at the Lion, oohing and aahing over Toto, and in the case of the little girl behind me, carrying her very own Glinda magic wand. Adorable. And to prove that WOZ affects people of all ages, the little girl’s Mom was sobbing during the scene where Dorothy says goodbye to the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion.
