Toronto Day 4

A lovely morning, cool breeze coming from the kitchen window, birds chirping in the green yard. They are not the only ones. The security alarm for the house is chirping too as I do not know how to operate it. Marv will be here later and show me. Dora is sleeping and I started the day with The National Post, a cup of coffee (Folgers, classic roast, ground, from a five pound can), and email, via telnet.

Mayer said all his old buddies in the steam room at the Y read the news online in the morning, including the Israeli newspapers, and quite liked the idea of doing the same, so Danny gave Mayer a computer and set him up. But to no avail. Mayer has his hands full caring for Dora and painting, so it was just too much to deal with the computer too, so he cancelled the DSL because he wasn't using it. This means that I when I am on the computer, the line is tied up. Marv was smart enough to set me up with Mayer's cell phone so I can receive calls while online and sure enough Pinki and Mayer called from France this morning! They gave us a quick report. Dora asks about Mayer all the time and all of us are eager to get news. Everything is going well there in Mourmelon, where they are performing in the Rencontre Internationale de Théâtres de Papier, 14-16 May. Local residents are hosting the artists. We're hoping the organizers will be posting video clips online today as we are very eager to see what they are doing.

Tonight we go to the Buddhist vegetarian restaurant with Ann Jacobs and her husband, Marv, and maybe Shawna, if she gets back from Rochester in time. That will be a nice change for Dora, a little outing.
