Peninsula Point Lighthouse...

I saw Herman's Hermits at the U.P. State Fair last night. Lost in the 60's. Peter Noone at 68 has not changed a bit! I knew every word to his songs.I do not know any words to current songs played on the radio, though.That must mean something, huh?
Finished Moby Dick or The Whale by Herman Melville all 1946 pages. I enjoyed it so much. Whaling is quite gory and the life of the sailors so difficult. Melville's language is so mesmerizing. I appreciate it much more as I have aged.  I started Barkskins by Annie Proulx. I feel like I am reading the lives of Ivan's (hubby) ancestors. U.P. loggers.

I went to a gig at the library where eighteen area authors showcased their books. I bought the play Willpower. Iris played the lead part the first time the play was presented in Marquette.
