January 7, 2023

Started the day working on the Spring Training trip. Organizing what we already have, and then getting tickets to the final game on the schedule. A Cubs game, because they held out making tickets available until today. And their website left a lot to be desired. So after I finally got the tickets I sent an email to the Cubs site. Low and behold, about 2 hours later a Cubs representative called our home phone. One of my complaints was you couldn’t see what seats were available, just choose a section. So after some apologies and a chat with Carl, they moved our seats to the better side of the section. Where fewer people will walk in the aisle next to the section.

Next up was work. Using everything I learned yesterday to start over where I was a few days ago.

And then we went out. The Grand Illusion is doing a Week long tribute to Dennis Nyback, our film archivist friend.

Tonight we saw Busby Berklee’s Golddiggers of 1933. It was sold out. As was the next show, Yojimbo. This is a 1961 Akira Kurosawa movie considered a classic. We’re going to their showing tomorrow evening, if I get tickets. There were only 6 tickets left when we got to the theater tonight.

All proceeds from the tribute week are going to the American Cancer Society.
