Show Biz, Piano, Dead Mouse

Many thanks to all who sent me birthday wishes yesterday via various media, and the special friends who asked me to tea with its after-meal DVD viewing of the (starring) Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Will Ferrell and Uma Thurman 2005 version of The Producers, directed by Susan Stroman; hilarious and instructive as a How To manual for putting on a show. It is a remake of the 1968 Mel Brooks movie which starred Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel.

By co-incidence, since the wonderful gift was made months ago, a post-birthday piano arrived and crossed my doorstep at 9.15 this morning all the way from far-off Stansbury. Thanks handlers Shaun and Andrew. Big thank you, Lois. The instrument is a Waldorf upright, a veteran in the best sense, and with a beaut sound.

Those are all positives. Alas, the downside to household matters this week is the pong of dead mouse in the vicinity of the kitchen. Has to be that. I have yet to track to source, and there are issues of unloading and moving large bits of furniture. I have to admit I know of no way of de-ponging deceased meese other than by finding and removing the little sods.
