Day 994

Sunday, October 4, 2015

Alice came over to Oakland in the a.m. with dumplings from Irving St.  We had breakfast, then headed up the Oakland Hills to Howard and Leslie's house for a little ping pong.  It was a blast! Alice is a natural and showed Howard her great spins and returns.   We arrived a little after 10:30 and stayed until 1.

In the afternoon, Alice worked on a new cruise she wants to go on with me and Austin.  We're looking at a 7-day cruise aboard the Royal Princess in late May from Barcelona to Rome.  Nice!

In the evening, we watched Iris, a documentary about a costume jewelry collector and NYC fashion personality, then 60 Minutes which had a couple of riveting segments on the Holocaust and Ted Kennedy's son Patrick Kennedy (the secret of addiction and alcohol abuse in families).

Alice left around 8.  I watched another documentary about a children's book illustrator that was extremely well done.  The production was amazing and the story about Tomi Ungerer was interesting, too.
