Location: Seattle, Washington, United States

What you have here is an old guy. In education for 30 years, started teaching elementary, ended as library and media director of community college. I've enjoyed mountain climbing, sports car rallying, was pipe major of a bagpipe band, played guitar and sang during the folk revival, walking and hiking later in life. Now fairly sedentary. Enjoy reading, esp. mysteries and fantasy, but my reading is pretty eclectic. Enjoy movies, giving Netflix a workout.

An Assortment, But Mostly Rhoda Williams

I was saddened to learn the other day that Rhoda Williams had died. Rhoda was an actress on radio, in television and movies. Her first role was at age five. She appeared on radio on Dr. Christian, One Man's Family, Arch Oboler Presents, The Life of Riley, The Lux Radio Theater, Father Knows Best and many other shows. She has appeared many times at The Radio Enthusiasts of Puget Sound's (REPS) Showcase, held each June in Seattle. She was very friendly and cheerful to everyone. She appeared on panels and in recreations of old shows with great enthusiasm, obviously enjoying herself. She was not with us last year due to ill health. I'm sorry about her death. She was a good friend to REPS.

On other fronts we just spent five days at our cabin near Mount Rainier. There was five inches of snow when we arrived and eight inches when we headed for home. We stayed inside most of the time, reading, writing some, and watching some movies on television. I had just read Margery Allingham's Mystery Mile and had just received the second season of Campion in the mail. So we got to watch the television production of that novel.

I was going to title this Hobson's Choice but held off because I'm not quite sure what Hobson's Choice means or what its derivation is. Will have to look it up. May report later.

If I remember correctly, Hobson was a stable owner. No matter what kind of horse one requested, you got the one he brought you, even if it was not right for your need--like a dray animal when you wanted to go pleasure riding.
