Today we are going to Muse about a series of unfortunate events. If this is your first visit, welcome to Musings. If you have been here before, welcome back. Over time we are going to talk about many things: the past, the present, perhaps the future, travel, art, society and more. Wherever my musing takes me. I hope you will come along with me.

Look away. Look away.
That is the advice given when you tune into the new Netflix offering Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.
“Every single episode is nothing but dismay. One cannot understand “why a decent person like yourself would want to view it. If you are interested in stories with happy endings then you would be better somewhere else. In the story there is no happy ending, no happy beginning and very few happy things in the middle”.
And so begins “a Series of Unfortunate Events, the first of which is A Bad Beginning.
If you are into droll, you should watch this.
These are stories that play to two audiences. They are children’s stories and they are suitable for adults. The stories are tongue-in-cheek cheek fun and farcical. And the visual effects are stunning. I don’t normally recommend movies or television programs but this is an exception. You will love it or hate it, but you should at least see it.
Last Wednesday was the opening of my exhibit of watercolors, most of which depict places in Palm Beach County. The show was hosted by Jennifer Garrigues, Inc at the store (308 Peruvian Avenue) in Palm Beach. We were pleased with the nice turnout. The works will be on display through February 18th Monday-Saturday from 10:00 am to 6:00pm. I encourage you to stop by if you are in the area. Jennifer’s place is fun.
Last weekend I had the pleasure to play in the Fusz Cup at the Everglades Club in Palm Beach. Nancy Reynolds invited me to be her partner.
The Everglades Club has a single court, about half regulation size. It is bordered on the west by the Intracoastal Waterway. This is the view from the covered loggia. That is West Palm Beach across the water.
The food was in the loggia.
There were sixteen teams and the games were short. And, I think we all had a good time.
Nancy and I especially enjoyed it. We won.
