Reagan's death, while nationally huge, is more so here. His ranch is just over the hill from the Alisal. The Reagan center had a memorial service in Santa Barbara yesterday, and his burial is on Monday, I think. The Parkers will be heading down. Fess apparently knew him very well from their mutual Hollywood days, and his daughter was an intern. On a personal note, he was the first president I remember.
Its a C.S. Lewis weekend. I read That Hideous Strength again, Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, and parts of Mere Christianity. My fix for the month...
Ahhhhh! Two days off! I have a list of things to do as long as my arm, but I have plenty of time to do it!

Wendy and I are down to the last installment of Pride and Prejudice. We've been watching it a movie a night --except last night. We couldn't very well leave the Darcy thread hanging.

And we're halfway through L. M. Montgomery's the Blue Castle. If anyone liked the Anne of Green Gables Series, this is better! Well, that's sacriligious, but it's wonderful. Valancy has less spunk, but more wit than Anne.
