Dad served in the US Army from '42-'45. While stationed in Oahu, he saw a performance of Macbeth with Maurice Evans and Dame Judith Anderson. He found out that it was a special unit of the army and sought a transfer and got one through his high school buddy Bill Corrigan in the Navy, who knew Maurice Evans. Dad served as technician for "GI Hamlet" and other shows that toured Hawaii (and after the war, the US), that started his professional career in the theater. We looked at photos yesterday. His army memories make him very nostalgic.

Feeling the power of motherhood today. 1) me and my (and @jiliangersten's) mom, Cora. 2) dad's mother, Henrietta and me. 3) Cora and her younger sister, Anita, with their mom, Ethel and un-ID'd tall lady. Or maybe someone in drag.
