Tomorrow is the big day for the Patient. He gets the feeding tube removed. Recovery has gone on for over 8 months and it's finally time. I think the procedure is pretty simple but will know more tomorrow. It has been a long, slow process, getting this far. There will probably be a small, tasteful celebration of some sort. Since it is July and I am always dry during this month ~ just to be sure I can still do it ~ perhaps we will wait until just after midnight on August 1 to toast a long and healthy life!

We have been watching the 1976 PBS series I, Claudius. Last installment tonight. Derek Jacoby is a genius. Patrick Stewart before he shot himself into space plays the treacherous Sejanus, the doer of many bad deeds on behalf of the Emperor Tiberius. Livia, Tiberius' mother and the Emperor Augustus' wife, is the incarnation of evil ambition. Siân Phillips is the actress who plays her. Absolutely delish! Tonight we get to see Caligula come to a bad end. Then stumbling, bumbling, shrewd Claudius becomes emperor and has his own downfall. So it goes.
