It was one of the first images of Canada that I remember, a children's show. Mr. Dressup, Casey and Finnegan. Ernie Coombs, our Mr. Dressup, died today. He trained with Fred Rogers in the US and in Canada. Mr. Rogers went back to the US, Ernie Coombs stayed in Canada and became one of the most beloved figures in children's programming. He had retired in 1996. To me he was a man of smiles, silly games, imagination, dress up. How I always longed for a Tickle Trunk!

New book on poet Edna St. Vincent Millay. I have a thing for her poetry - it is dark and emotional. Can't wait to read her biography.
