  • ML, Mary Louise, my mother-in-law, invited up to go out to dinner and then see the movie we had just purchased, Never on Sunday.

    The movie was mostly in Greek. None of us knew how to operate the remote--seriously--so we watched the whole movie in Greek without subtitles because we didn't know how to turn them on. I've never owned a TV with a remote and had no idea how to operate it. It was the first time in my life (I'm 66 and a half) that I ever wished I could operate one of those.
