breakfasting at wimbledon

My sister Joan and I used to have a tradition of getting together to watch the Wimbledon tennis women's finals -- "breakfast at Wimbledon".  I was a Jana Novotna ("the choker") fan -- those were the days.  Our tradition fell away sometime during the Williams years, but we are back at it this morning.   Mary is a big tennis fan, and it's cool that we get to watch it with her for once.  Jerry and James are baking what we call "Bob Jones coffee cake", and the coffee is on (James is making progress -- he only puts 3 1/2 spoonfuls of sugar in his coffee now).    We're all a little sleepy -- it's early here when it is tennis time in England -- and we were up late at the Jungle.

If you're local, try to see A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum at the Jungle while it's still there:  a fun, impressive production with a surprisingly large cast on a small stage.

... so nice to have a long weekend...

I didn't even know James drank coffee.
