Some more responses from the fan mail that Elizabeth and I have been sending out. It's really cool how many successes we've had, actually. This time it is from Ann Blyth. She was a musical actress in the 1950s who starred with Mario Lanza in The Great Caruso. Of all her films (that we've seen so far) though, The World in His Arms, with Gregory Peck, has to be our favorite. It's all about San Francisco in the 1850s and the seal trade with Russian Alaska. And it has a super-romantic ending!
Elizabeth also got a response from Richard Bonynge, the famous Symphony Conductor (also married to Joan Sutherland). She's thrilled, as he is one of her favorite opera conductors. It's always fun to come home to a mail box full of this fun stuff. We were out this afternoon, and it was actually still 44'F at 4:00pm! Trees are actually budding --- some of the early ones. I can't believe that Winter is soon to end. Time flies when you're having fun.
