T’was a fun Mother’s Day. Tiger wins. But, oh, Sergio. What is the definition of loco? Tied for the lead. Decide to go right at Sunday pin on the island green, with a wedge. Twice. Splash. Twice. Machismo? A Van de Velde worthy choke.
MadMen6. Don & Sylvia loco show. Ok. Leave Megan, you don’t love her anymore. But, geez. Sick. Shower needed. Go for some young pretty thing at least. Joan saved her white knight. Peggy brought maturity to the playpen.
Our favorite show, Golden Boy got the ax. We must be wrong demo. Congrats to profesora AnneB, retiring after 35 years. Muy bien hecho!
Tiger and Sergio top leaderboard heading into the weekend. Island green and players on the loose. Lindsey Vonn take note. Seems Sir Woods was so tipsy after NY MetMuseum Fashion Show’s 19th hole, he hit the turf. Resurrection is good.
Rand Paul has been seen lurking in Iowa. Hillary is dodging RightWing Conspiracy Benghazi-Gate. Wow. Faux News couldn’t wait to put that on its banner. Rubio v. Cruz. Cubanos’ immigration debate. 2016 state of mind.
Jamie Dimon stays JPMorgan CEO. Good call, Board. He’s not to blame. Until regulators make as much and know as much as traders, nothing will change.
Oh and Happy Day to us Mothers. We are so very lucky.
Maureen Dowd’s Sunday column about Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy’s dogged support for gun control legislation. My comment was a NYimes pick.
Most beautiful name and nicest man in golf, Angel Cabrera with his son on the bag, edged by the greatest looking guy in golf, Adam Scott. Stevie won, too. Tiger stayed smartly in the middle of the pack as to avoid an asterisk for a tainted W.
Guess we must talk about MadMen. Last week, missed the last six minutes and Don’s long pre-Hawaii liaison with his prostitute mother reincarnate, Sylvia. Death, miscarriage, wife-beating, cheating. Geez. Not feeling the love.
Intriguing new books. Westerly by Will Schutt, Allende’s Maya’s Notebook.
Boies & Olson. On the same Supreme side. Gay marriage. No matter if they punt the legal decision this year, it’s already settled for society’s next generation. Not even close. Affirmative action. If equality for all races and gender, tipped, too.
Supreme Tiger. Back on top. So to speak. Does winning take care of everything? MadMen5 marathon rewind as we ready for MadMen6 in just a week. Anderson Cooper to replace icky Matt Lauer? Hmmm. What about Willie?
It’s almost porch reading season. Help! Good books wanted. Best Sellers. Either, I’ve read most of them a year ago. Or, they are 50 shades of insipid romance. And, I don’t follow Patterson or any other mystery serials. Any ideas? Donna Tartt’s third book in 30 years, Goldfinch, doesn’t come out until October.
Passover-Easter. Second week of Spring break continues. If you don’t like basketball, you are screwed. Sweet 16. Still have 3. FGCSU. Who? Golf delayed. Johnny Miller livid, a Tiger Sunday gone with the wind. Golf Channel today.
Too cold to take Sugar Shack Side Treks. Maybe next week.
Happy St. Joe. Swallows returning to Capistrano. We get dumped with Spring-eve snow. A-Man & GemQueen tied the knot at SanFran Fairmont on the 19th 19 years ago. Father’s Day in Italy where Papa Francis is taking office.
Tiger says he is officially “dating” Lindsey Vonn. Not going against type. Will she motivate him to win the Masters at Augusta and give him a Green Jacket hug?
Richard Engel’s VanityFair piece about his capture in Syria is spellbinding terror. Must read.
My pre-bracket picks are still in play. Kansas, Indiana, Duke, Gonzaga. UMass didn’t make the sixty-eight. Harvard did? Madness marches to its final fate. Workplaces take annual diversionary break. It’s fun. Longshot? Liberty.
Can the Cypriots bring down the Euro house of cards? A financial cascade could happen. Profit-taking time. Krugman calling. Austerity may soon be us.
Season finale Girls. Shoshanna breakup performance tour de force. Zosia Mamet can act. Marnie’s happy ending with Charlie contrived. Didn’t buy it. Hannah learns allies are hard to find, including her ‘girl’ friends. Adam’s loyalty rang true.
Sun warmed longer days as clocks click ahead. Hotel Giraffe’s roof mid-afternoon. Delectable late winter root vegetables and pork offal at Washington Square’s Blue Hill. Braised hake the winner. Birthday treat to remember.
Tiger took charge of the last tourney on the original ‘blue monster’ at Miami’s historic Doral. Trump is blowing it up for redesign. Sightings… Johnny Depp on West 14th. Jim Parsons Park Avenue South. He and Alan Alda dined at Ciano.
My final four picks. Duke, Indiana, Kansas, Gonzaga. Huh? Or, is that il Papa.
When did Friday become the new Saturday? Nothing on TV is live. Even news shows have old taped pieces and regular hosts don’t show up. Courts not in session. Congress nowhere to be found. Many businesses quit early or have casual flexibility. Unfortunately not true in the medical world, nor retail.
Good day to watch a rare stellar leaderboard at Doral. We dodged the snowfall, unlike south and east of us. Fifties tomorrow. Happy to me! Sixties?
Downton out. Killing off cast faster than General Hospital. Heartwarming liaisons formed. Baby boy born. Happy. And then, poof. No more Matthew. Speaking of silly, GH bringing geezer couples (Luke&Laura) back. Fast-forward.
Woodward smacks down Rove on Fox! Bob looked at Karl and told him he’s writing a book called, Some People Never Go Away. Priceless. McCain and Graham non-stop steaming as Obama and Woods tee off together. Hope Tiger doesn’t take Prez “out” while Michelle and girls are skiing in Aspen. Dangerous.
Sweet to meet the lovely and captivating Lilly Leigh at La Fiorentina.
Another visit to my favorite Bryant barn in winter. Thanks Dr.Photog.
