Strange to see a different Ward and to see him smoking

But the burning question is, was he as worried about the Beaver?  ???

Hmm... I just got the "official" schedule for next week's Mary Poppins rehearsals, and it looks like I may have double-booked myself unintentionally for three(!) days next week.  Guess I should send the e-mail now..

So... Have her lawyers called your lawyers yet?  ;)

Wow!  We had a huge explosion here in Tacoma this afternoon.  People felt it all over the city.  If I could of felt it here, I wouldn't know, because I was napping.  Anyway, turns out that it was the Atlas Foundry in Tacoma, which is located just a few blocks away from my office.

He must have shrugged, evidently.

Hello, HHWers!

Thanks, DR Tomovoz, for the update.  Glad that you had a good visit.

DR elmore3003 - that Amahl issue is of great interest to me - thanks for the heads up!

DR MusicGuy - thanks for all the great photos!  It's great to see DR Laura!

Also - I got word today from DR Dan (the Man).  He is taking a break from HHW.  Not from anger or any reason, particularly, except that he is very busy at work and can't keep up with all the posts.  Although he didn't say so explicitly, I think it's a pretty good bet that he'll be back in the future.

Re: skunks

Once when I was walking Zach, we came upon a skunk that had gotten his head stuck in a piece of trash - it wasn't glass, I think it was actually a discarded McDonald's shake cup.  Anyway, the poor thing was wandering blindly into the roadway.  So, very cautiously [I knew he couldn't see me approaching, but didn't know what would happen after the reveal], I quietly approached, grabbed the cup, tore it off, and then Zach and I backed away, very quiety and very quickly.  The skunk looked startled for just a moment, then turned and ran off into the woods.  It made me happy to do the good deed and not get sprayed in return.  And - this was all accomplished without the use of a gun!  

[I realize that a glass bottle would complicate things].

I have conflicting information from NYMF...

Is Sunday's performance of Starfighter at 4:00 PM or 4:30 PM?

Thanks!

We are back from dinner at Pietrasanta.  We sat outside on 47th St. and without consulting each other decided on the same order - Fettuccine alla Pietrasanta, which is spinach pasta with zucchini and peas in a light tomato cream sauce.  Add an nice bottle of white wine and it was a delightful dinner.  Unfortunately, this bad cold that I have interferes with my appetite, so I didn't eat much.

Hmmm, IMHO, he nailed Legally Blonde sound-wise, but missed the style completely for Grease

He was the Star Music Boy at Goodspeed and caught the eye of William D Brohn who's responsible for a lot of his advancement.

DR Ginny - Glad to hear you liked the Monkey Cake.  And, yes, sometimes the cream cheese frosting can get overwhelming, however, the trick is to "ration" is so that you get a bit of frosting with each bite of cake.  Trust me, it can be done.  ;D

I had a lovely time today at Such Good Friends.  I was seated directly behind DR Noel and some of his family, and directly across the aisle from Peter Filichia.  And I did have a brief opportunity to introduce myself to Noel.  "Ah," he said!  "It's SlipShod!"  :)

The theater was full and the audience very receptive.  And it was a fabulous show.  The storytelling fluid, enhanced by very clear direction, set, and staging to bring the audience along.  I enjoyed it immensely - the review that Noel posted earlier today [which I did not see until after I'd see the show] echoed many thoughts and feelings that I had.

Just as with The Brain, the cast was exemplary.  How these productions in the NYMF pull it off, given the circumstances, is a testament to talent and professionalism.

Congratulations to DR Noel on his show and a very successful final performance!   I am so glad that I had the opportunity to see it.

Yeah, we did the rationing thing, but still had quite a bit left over.  Monkey Cake reminded me of the Banana Walnut Torte, which was my favorite dessert on the menu of one of my fav Cincinnati restaurants, The Grande Finale.  It was taken off the menu years ago  >:(

I'm back from SHERLOCK HOLMES (THE EARLY YEARS) and I thought the music was beter than the lyrics and the book, which seemed too slangy and colloquial to be set somewhere around 1880 London.  The band - keyboard, bass, violin, and drums - was tasty but it all seemed too silly at times, neither a really good mystery nor a very funny spoof but the majority of the audience appeared to like it more than I.  There was one funny "love" duet for Holmes and a clueless Watson (most of the story revolves around the dilemma of Watson on whether his true love is the beautiful - but quite mad - nurse or Holmes) and a strange disco number for the three bobbies who want to be dancers instead of policemen.  I thought its cast, choreography and direction quite good, however, but I wanted to like the show more than I did.
