Them Cypresses

Due to its being allergy season, and the oak trees’ blooming stuff is still around, I’ve been in an antihistamine daze. It causes me to need to sleep in the middle of the day; I sleep several hours, and then am up all night. So after getting some work done I’ve been watching The Borgias on Netflix. Takes place in Rome around 1500, when one of the Borgias has finally become Pope. In certain landscape scenes my jaw dropped, and I said, Hey, I know those trees! Those are JonDude trees!

I just love those cypresses, his studies were pretty much my favorite paintings. The hills frequently look familiar too. I didn’t realize we had gotten a tour of the Italian countryside -- or, at least, so much of one. I think I might go look at his site to enjoy those again.

the trees are somehow engraved on my brain and I have only to think of Jon's painting to see them.

Many of the people chosen for it look like they jumped out of famous paintings, too. I can't say Jeremy Irons does, though.

I just got caught up with Fleabag on Netflix---now watching Frankie and Gracie--Tomlin and Fonda are great!!

Lily Tomlin is always good, I have to see more of that show. Have you seen the Wanda Sykes comedy show on now? If not, just try the trailer. I've never liked her, but this had to be the funniest thing I've heard in my life.

I'm going to run out of things to watch pretty soon, I'll check out The Borgias - and the trees.
