Autumn Crisp

Farm fresh tart apples from Upstate. In a flaky crust. Clean crisp air. Parades on Fifth Avenue. Yep. It’s Fall in the City.

Won’t spoil anything about Season Finale of Succession. Except to say it was perfect. The Politician on Netflix a quirky Falchuk-Paltrow vanity piece. Yet. Worth it for Ben Platt’s version of Joni Mitchell’s River.

Ann Patchett’s new novel The Dutch House a pretty good read. Her narrator Danny a bit flat. Guessing Margaret Atwood’s sequel will win the Man Booker prize. Find out at 4:30.   Half right.

In other rumors. If Biden out. Bloomberg in.

If It’s Tuesday …

The Yankees must have won the ALDS in a sweep. The Forty Niners must have crushed Cleveland. Trump must have done something nutty enough that even the Republicans are in revolt. See Nikki Haley.

Family’s recovered from the rollicking wedding in New England.

Everyone must have watched Succession. Okay. No spoilers anyway. Just a little tease. Blood sacrifice. Next week. Season finale.

Emmy’s. Favorite wins. Phoebe Waller-Bridge & Fleabag. Peter Dinklage & Game of Thrones. Alex Borstein. Bill Hader. Ben Whishaw. Jesse Armstrong, writer of Succession. Most favorite. Jodie Comer of Killing Eve. Happy Nominated. Schitt’s Creek. Most annoying. John Oliver. Stupidest. Kardashians saying reality tv is real.

On Succession. Those poor Roy kids. Ruthless father. Disinterested mother. And. Marcia will be the key. Woman scorned. Never good.

NY Giants. Daniel Jones. Yay.

Monday Grind

Rafa Nadal brilliantly battled out a 5-set grunting grind against Russia’s relentless Steely Dan Medvedev. A match for the ages.

U.S. Open has a new Queen. Romanian Canadian Anrdreescu. Serena slayer. Prez Trudeau sent congrats. While Meghan ditched her royal duties for a friend. Fashion week should rethink purple rain. Anna.

Logan Roy quotes Shakespeare to Cherry Jones. “Just Take the Money”.  The kids are not all right. Marcia goes rogue. Cousin Gregory rising.

Mark Sanford announces he’ll run against Trump for the Republican nom. He’ll focus on ethics and honesty in the party? That’s rich. Biden couldn’t muster a crowd at New Hampshire’s Dem convention. While Warren’s appearance filled a rowdy arena. Iowa & New Hampshire don’t seem to be going Joe’s way. But. Hey. There’s always Delaware.

For a belly laugh. Conan Without Borders in Greenland. Hilarious. Also his trip with sidekick to Italy and Japan. Bourdain-esque with lots of funny. ABC’s Sunday Rahm & Christie show continues to entertain.

Yankees won. Giants lost. Niners won. Pats. Duh. As NFL’s contracts get fatter, injured list gets longer. Good Luck!

Lobster Day Weekend

End of summer traditions. Steamers & lobster & corn-on-the-cob. Just a Metro North train away. Fabulous backyard clam bake.

On Center Court. Osaka showed heart & class. If not game in the end. #McCoco doubles team regained youthful glee. Djok choked. And. Sorry Serena. But. That outfit was just purple rain.

Over at HBO. Logan coddles a fragile Kendall. Roman goes to management training. Shiv shakes her head as Holly & Cherry join the fray.  But hey. Always intriguing new acquisitions at RoyCo.

‘Twas a bon weekend.

Succession

Logan Roy pits his kids against each other in a fratricidal competition, akin to Soapatriarch Victor Newman. In that other reality show, Trump sets up his spawn to vie for the family business with a nod to have the next G-7 at their Doral Resort in that swing state of Florida.

Over in Democrat land. Elizabeth Warren is drawing huge crowds. It could be a bloody fight with Sleepy Joe for the nomination. Uglier than a Kendall-Roman wrestling match where each ends up Shivved.

A rough & tumble Fall. For some of us. That’ll be fun.

Side Trek Sass

Still Like Mike. For Prez.

The Family on Netflix. Chilling documentary. Church & State.

Succession returns to HBO. Best series on that TV thing.

The Rahm & Chris Show. Emanuel & Christie should do a cable news politics gig of their own. They are funny, savvy and cheeky together.

Bry v. Bro. PGA champion Brooks Koepka has been outspoken about golf’s pace-of-play. While enduring the annoyingly slow Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks complained. Words exchanged. Money’s on Bro. My new hero.

Slow golf quiz for duffers from Williston, Vermont is EXCELLENT.
