Sorry, I just was not up to replying then even though I was glad you posted.
Yes Dottie's absence leaves a gap, and sadly I'm not altogether sure she has left because she is in a good place. I certainly gained immensely and I'm sure you feel much the same. I do think it was very much mutual support, and hope our contact gave her a little ease and security when she needed it.
I looked at what you said to Moon about those two movies, both thought provoking in their way. I never watched Me Before You as the reviews indicated the main character dies and I did not want to watch that. I will watch The Intouchables if I get the chance.
I must confess any film dealing with quads does ,as you'd know, pretty things up so much that it feels a little unrealistic to me, dealing as I do with such matters regularly. Another that glosses over the same matters is The Bone Collector with Denzil Washington, otherwise a pretty good detective story.
Moon~ You warm thoughts are a blessing too. I know life is hard, it makes them that much more meaningful.
Woman is a lovely gentle romantic song, I particularly like it too. As For Ernest, farce or not it's truly great. I like you quote (very suitable of course) and also my favorite from there which is Lady Bracknell saying
To lose one parent, Mr. Worthing, may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness.
That December tour starts at $175 Melbourne & Perth and $250 Sydney, all going up to $800. Out of my league :-/.
No I had no idea Eleanor Rigby - or Father Mackenzie either - where anything other than names made up at random for lonely people. You certainly know a great many out of the public's eye type facts :). Who was she?
