At the Top of Her Field

Happy Birthday to Dame Judi Dench. I am truly not "starstruck" though I respect good work by competent people in whatever honest endeavors they might be engaged. Ms. Dench does good work. Today she joins those of us who have celebrated a "diamond" milestone.

While she has been honored highly for many well-known works. my personal favorite is her role as Jean in the Britcom, As Time Goes By, opposite Geoffrey Palmer as Lionel.

Note that there are two postings this morning. I thought each honoree deserved a separate page.

She is one of my favorite actresses! Brilliant.

She's really good. I happened to catch the very first episode of As Time Goes By last week. I had never seen that one before.

She is, indeed, an outstanding performer, Elizabeth.

Sharkbytes, our PBS station runs these episodes about a season at a time, then we have to do without long enough to whet our appetites yet again. They just ended a run. Hope they'll be back!
