Dear Hildie:


We watched the Agatha Raisin pilot last night. I know the Hamish MacBeths on TV were disavowed by M.C. Beaton, and I wonder how close this TV adaptation of Raison is. I hope it’s not accurate, because, on TV, at least, she’s an obtuse and obnoxious idiot. I wanted her to be the one murdered.


Went out to empty the garbage last night and there were blue lights everywhere—neighbor’s big oak tree had dropped a limb across Hundred Oaks. Nobody hurt, though.


Worked out yesterday and didn’t die! Hurrah!


Enough of this rain.


Take care.
