Isolation Day 21 - Three Weeks and Grateful

Another good day for Connie. She's able to respond to voice commands (i.e. move your feet, open your eyes, move your arms). She is still sedated, but it's more of a relaxed, sleep where she can go in and out of sleep. The nurse said this is just where she needs to be at this point. Finally some real progress. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.


Today is the end of three weeks of isolation. We're safe, healthy, and grateful for what I have. We're entering the apex of the virus infection in New York, and the DC-metro area is not far behind. Here's hoping people stay home and the curve flattens.


Last night, Shelly and I watched the movie "Mystic River" starring Sean Penn, Timothy Robbins and Kevin Bacon. Amazingly, we hadn't seen this movie before. It's about three childhood friends whose lives become intertwined when the daughter of Penn's character is murdered. It's a dark drama, the acting is tremendous and story is very interesting. If you haven't seen it, it's worth a watch.


I twice listened to American Top 40 with Casey Kasem for the week ending March 31, 1973. Here's the top 10:



I watched the movie "Clear and Present Danger," from the Tom Clancy novel of the same name. It stars Harrison Ford as Jack Ryan, an intelligence officer in the CIA. This time he's up against a Colombian drug cartel. Good action and an intelligent story.


A throwback photo of our trip to Orlando and Key West. We went to Discovery Cove, donned wet suits, interacted with marine life and learned how to train dolphins. Here we are with some exotic birds. It's one of my favorite pictures of Shelly and me.



And in closing, changing from concert memories to Broadway musical memories. I absolutely love Les Miserables, I've seen the show 4 times. Here's the cast of the 10th anniversary concert performing "One Day More!."

Love Mystic River. I agree Penn did a great job. If you are looking for another great performance by Penn watch "State of Grace." NY Police drama. Great great cast (Penn, Gary Oldman, Ed Harris, John Tuturro, Robin Wright, John C. Reilly, Burgess Meredith, etc,) fantastic story and one of the best movie soundtracks of that decade. One of my favorite movies of all time.
