An official photo from this year’s meet-up at The Donway Seniors’ Residence. On the left, 94-year-old Alice Campbell, and on the right, my dear old mother, a sprightly 80. On the agenda for discussion were such
topics as “look at the beautiful sconces”, “the air conditioning is too cold” and “the Chinese”. Don’t ask.
Just down the hall it was movie night at the Donway, but whomever had started up the DVD for the crowded screening room hadn’t stuck around to press the play button—after hearing a loop of the same music about six times I realized that the audience was patiently watching a repeating title screen! I calmly stepped to the front of the room, and with a click of the appropriate remote became a hero for the day.
Sadly, this is the my biggest achievement in the film industry to date…
