our production of 'It's a Wonderful Life' opened Thursday night, not a sell out crowd by any means (Thur night) but a good crowd.
It seemed close (as it usually does) but we managed to pull it together!

NOW just got to get through This weekend, setting up and tech-ing a dance show on MY stage this weekend, then running almost an hour away to do wonderful life too.

\\Yep. I'm a glutton for punishment.
And clapping. LUV the clapping. :)

How did they Do the rest of the weekend? have you caught the theater bug? SYMPTOMS an addiction to greasepaint, putting taps on your sneakers, and a need to recite Shakspeare in front anyone who will sit still for 5 minutes. there is no known cure.

I was given a really large portrait of my first D&D character, an Anti-Paladin. it just really touched me that they appreciated me so much for all of the last 33 years of gaming. It's a wonderful rendition of the character and I am ever so grateful for it. They're a pretty ok group of folks. Guess I'll keep 'em a while longer.

Howdy everyone! It's getting near the holidays, so...

I am doing this giveaway thing again, if you want to jump in.


Hey groovy people,

How goes it today? Good? Bad? Ugly? In my case my back is feeling a tad bit better today. Enough so that I think I'll be able to go grocery shopping later.

Glad to hear it Cal! But don't overexert yourself.

Believe me, I'm not. I'm still taking the shortest walks possible with the dogs. Just long enough to allow them to do their business then back home.


My knee has decided to become a trick knee - I think that's what they say when they mean it occasionally goes POP and shifts to one side or front and back and hurts a whole lot and you fall over.

Can't help but think this is not a good development.


Yup. I think that's a trick knee. I had to deal with that in 2016. I had to have surgery on it to correct it. It was outpatient surgery and I was walking once the anesthetic wore off.

As for my own pain issues, I was wrong about being able to go grocery shopping today. I barely got started before I had to leave because I could literally feel the muscles in my lower back begin to tighten up.

LOL,.. WHAT 'rest' of the weekend?!? ;P

In case you misunderstood my elderly ramblings, ;P
-I run an auditorium on a university campus. I handle all of the music schools concerts, student performances, the universities dance shows, some operas, and ALL of the outside rentals I can stand. :P
-This LAST weekend, I spent friday at work as usual, and ran an hour away to perform in Wonderful Life.
-back at work early on Sat morning, loading in and setting up/ writing light cues/setting up sound playback and mics and rehearsing for a dance show rental 'Cajun Nutcracker'. (Think Louisiana Redneck Nutcracker) ;P
-After spending all day there, I run my daughter and I to where we are performing Wonderful Life, leaving my (mostly) competent student workers in charge of the rental show. :/
-Sunday, same thing, let in the renter, run to the outlying town to perform, leaving student workers to run the rehearsal and show. (I think my lead tech only PO'd the renter once, so my damage control will be minimal. I hope.) >_<
-,... So yeah,,... WHAT rest of teh weekend?!? :P

-AND you seem to be confusing my daughter and I with 'normal' theater folk. WE are musical theater folk. We are MUCH worse.
Instead of reciting Shakespeare, we break into Broadway Tunes at the drop of a hat!
:D

That's one of those things that sounds way more fun than it really is.

Bleah indeed. ;/


I have never shoveled snow in my entire life, even when I was younger and we got snow nearly every winter. Sometimes more than once. The closest I came to that was taking an ax and breaking holes in the ice on ponds so the cattle could drink. Of course, it no longer gets that cold here often anymore. Thanks, climate change.

I like it, there's no one out, just you, the night, and your shovel.

Although we didn't have enough snow to shovel so it was just a salt run through the condos and Trader Joe's.

I read the other day that the "permanent" Arctic ice is no longer so permanent. It's beginning to melt, and scientists aren't sure what that means for the planet, or the humans on it. Probably nothing good.

I believe it's definitely bad. It will open up a summer trade passage which will further damage a fragile ecosystem while allowing a new cold war over deep water oil drilling.

Now, no more politics from me today. I just hammered a guy on FB so I've had my fill... lol

Blargh, what a terrible time to be broke....


Indeed!
Great Deals,
BAd timing,... (For my pocketbook) ;P

OF course, I already have those books in hardback and paperbacks,... so its not like I NEED another set. ;)

There's four Half-price Book stores near me. No shortage of good deals in Pittsburgh. Oh, and about a dozen The Exchange stores for music, DVDs, and games.


I found a website that has the best prices among book-dealers. I was in hog heaven tjl I run out of room on my shelves, then out of space on the floor, then setting spaces dwindled, I have given most of my books away, no Sci-fi or fantasy, just art Books.

F%&+ cancer!

OH NO! If I may ask who is the victim of this horrible affliction?

Mom. Fifth bout. Breast cancer that spread to the right lung (fourth time) and then to the brain (fifth bout, not done yet). Two tumors that were discovered about 7 to 8 months ago due to her having 3 seizures in 5 days. One of the tumors has almost gone away, but the second had shrunk to half the size it was, but it has now grown again and is slightly larger. She starts radiation treatment next week.

The law says that you must be at least 6 months seizure free before you can drive again. She has been 7 months seizure free but the doctor wants her to not drive for another six months or more due to this tumor. Needless to say, mom is not happy about that either.

And to add injury to insult, one of our cats is sick and at the vet for treatment. I am confident in her recovery, but the bill is at $680 as of right now and I expect it to go up.

I so hate to hear that you and your mom are having to go through this yet again. There's been very little cancer in my family, for which I am very grateful, but I do know many others who have personally dealt with it or they tell me of their family members they've lost to this insidious disease. I truly wish there was something I could do that would help you, your mom, and your cat.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

I admit that it could be much worse. Mom has a good team watching out for her. Plus she has had a good life so far.

Prayers and well wishes for your mother Sharoth.

Cancer sucks, I wish I had the Infinity Gauntlet with the stones/gems, and I'm still waiting with hope for a Snowy Christmas.

The extended forecast here calls for a Christmas in the low 50s during the day. It perturbs me.

I read a science fiction short story years ago, in Analog, I think, about a guy in his 80's who wished he could see snow one more time before he died. Problem was, he lived in Los Angeles. The weather control folks heard about this last wish, and they made it snow - on his house only. :-)
