This And That

Yesterday's high winds lifted the cladding  off the garden wall. It was very ugly cladding and I'm not sorry to see it go. Now I have to dispose of all the rubble.

Judy's father once bumped into Ayn Rand at a New York party. He said afterwards that she was the ugliest woman he'd ever met. I was watching footage of her last night- and I didn't think her ugly; I thought her reptilian. The two things are not the same. Lizards- for example- are very beautiful in their own way.  Rand has never caught on over here; from what little I know of her I'd say it was because she was entirely lacking in a sense of humour.

The French Open is under way. We had the TV on yesterday afternoon. Eurosport runs adverts you don't encounter anywhere else- mostly for airlines. "We are Turkish airlines/ We are globally yours." Such a pretty tune. I have devised a dance to go with it.  I noted, with bitterness, that the sun was shining in Paris.
