When Felix got home and heard about the schedule, he quickly flew off the handle. In the above photo, you can see that he is on the phone calling TCM to offer some "constructive" suggestions. Among his ideas-- play more movies with Jack Lemmon in them.

The fashion show was a resounding success. Later today I am heading to Canada for a hockey game, though I'd much prefer to remain in this warm climate.

I am heading back to the U.S. today. Musician Richard Rodgers called to tell me his partner left him for Jerome Kern. I referred him to a support group for men dealing with similar issues. It's all composers who attend those meetings. The group was founded by Peter Tchaikovsky and Aaron Copeland.
