A Christmas klaatu42 Video!!

Yay!! Here it is. Life is good.

AND, I just finished watching this show about John Wilkes Booth and the controversy about whether or not he died in that barn. It was quite interesting! But it ends with a question mark. They’d petitioned to have the body of Edwin Booth exhumed so dna tests could be performed and then compared to the fragments they have of Booth’s body. They’d also have to get permission to do dna analysis of those fragments, and the show ends with no answer about whether or not they got permission for either. So I google it and learn that they’re half way there!! Article here. Although, since then I’ve read more about the controversy and they left out some information that makes it seem less likely that Booth survived.

I took this last night. This restaurant had chairs set up outside. Who would choose to sit outside??

  1. Back in the 80s, I came across one of the BEST novels I’ve ever read — about John Wilkes Booth. In it, he is trying to get away and comes across this house where a lady lives. They have a brief, but wonderful love affair…and during that, there’s lots of questions raised about him/his dastardly deed, etc. I cannot remember the name of the novel or author, but it was incredibly fascinating. The author did a LOT of background research and it truly showed in the storyline.

  2. Who would choose to sit outside? Smokers, that’s who! I’m assuming NYC doesn’t allow smoking in restaurants anymore.
    By the way, am looking forward to finding out what your $10 gift was!

  3. Cara, I wonder what book that was! And Nora, of course! I didn’t think of it.

    Also, my $10 gift was not so great, now I’m embarrassed, but it’s hard to get something good for $10. And I found out about it late so I didn’t have time to mull it over!
