Interests old and new . . .

Can't believe I'm posting twice in one day!

I'm having fun at the Judy Bolton list at Yahoo Groups. Judy Bolton was the thinking girl's Nancy Drew back in the first half of the 20th Century, a realistic version of the girl detective. I've been lurking at the list for some time, but I finally jumped into the discussion, and it's such a friendly, mature group. And it gave me an excuse to re-read 'The Haunted Attic' last week, a great children's book that was handed down to us by our mom. (The dedication on the front cover reads, "Gloria, from Mildred & Ethel, 1935." That was when my mom was 11 years old!)

In the meantime, I've been watching a little of FX's telecast of 'S.W.A.T.' between surfing sessions to the tennis and whatever else interests me. I can't tell if there was anything extra (yeah, I should know it all by heart, but I missed a lot of the pivotal scenes), but it looks surprisingly good on TV. Makes me think of the past year of my Gamble/Street obsession and how much I've enjoyed it and enjoyed meeting a few people who feel the same. (Love you, guys!)

Tennis: Blake managed to win again today, but Kiefer lost. Too bad about that.
