100 % Esther Greenwood

On Saturday, Gail Crowther, who is visiting from England, and I did a little tour of Winthrop, Nahant, and Swampscott to see Plath's North Shore. While on the beach at Nahant, we decided to conduct a bit of an archaeological dig to try to make and discover a bit of history...

For those interested, please re-read the first bit of Chapter Thirteen of The Bell Jar, and then view the following...

I am sure Smith would be delighted to have such an exclusive, rare object, and would keep it in a separate cabinet (with built-in refrigerator, just to be on the safe side, even if the object has proven to be able to remain intact and sustain all climate conditions imaginable). Not for nothing did I call you The Detective in one of Amanda's photos investigating a Plath's mailbox I think in Boston. Any enforcement agency would not ask how much to have the privilege to hire such a talent.

I think I get a hint of an entire Plath Profiles devoted to Plath food items and experiences!

(Gee that looked appetising...)

Kristina, Kim, and Melanie - Thanks all for your comments! As you can imagine we were completely and totally surprised to find the wiener on the beach. We felt as though we were to top dogs!

When Gail returns to NYC, she's going to look for the clothes Esther Greenwood let fly from the Amazon. And then we're off to go to the Forest Hill's Tennis Club to look for Marco's diamond stick pin in her imitation jet bead evening bag.

But what happened to the bap and the relish?

Peter, you're hilarious!

Anonymous, believe it or not I re-read the chapter to make sure I hadn't forgotten the bap and relish. You got me.

Marie Augustine! If you come to Mass. let me know...

Julia - Thanks. You're awesome. It took three takes to get this one and it was extraordinarily difficult to keep a straight face. I dislike beef hot dogs so that was also kind of trying...had to cover it in sand before I could touch it...
