I used to read a lot of Stephen King, but I stopped around IT. (I did like their ad campaign: "Don't leave home without IT"!)

My favorite adapatations that I've seen: CARRIE and SHAWSHANK

My favorite books: The Shining, The Stand

Speaking of Shawshank, I'm up at his hour, and he leaves without so much as a goodbye kiss!

DR Cillaliz, I'm glad you had so much fun at the circus. It sounds like a magical evening, and what a cute picture!

I used to work for the conductor of the Atlanta Pops. His parents were circus performers in Europe (his mother did a balancing act on a horse), and on his mother's 100th birthday, we took her to see Ringling/Barnum & Bailey. During the show, the horseback act riders came over and presented her with a big bouquet of roses.

It was neat to see the expression on her face when they sang "Joyeux Anniversaire".

Our little French boy took us out to dinner at a fancy restaurant up the street. He ordered a nice bottle of champagne before Greg was able to tell him that I can't drink because of the medication I'm taking. (I did have a taste...)

His husband has had diverticulitis so it was good to be able to talk to him about what was going on with me. (Not that it has been diagnosed yet, but it seems too similar not to be!) He said that since his DH had the surgery 5 years ago, he hasn't had any problems since.

But I hope it doesn't come to that!

We were celebrating our move into the house (he gave up thinking we would ever move and actually has lived in this house before WE did, when he was here for a couple of weeks working) and the sale of his house in Paris. He made a huge profit, so he paid for dinner!

Has anyone ever done a musical version of DAVID COPPERFIELD? That's my favorite Dickens book.

Oh, that's right---we're talking about Stephen King today.

Wasn't there a musical version of CARRIE?

I stopped reading Stephen King after; actually during The Stand. However, up to that point I thought The Shining was his best novel. It was well written and an interesting read. I also enjoyed his collection of short stories. Some of them were really spooky to me at the time I read them.

And now off to work

Yes, there was a musical version of Carrie and it ranks as one of the biggest bombs in Broadway history. I didn't see it but I have been regaled with stories about the show. It began in London and the divine Barbara Cook played the Mother. She, wisely as I've heard, left the show before it came to Broadway. I have heard there is an ootleg bay opicay ideovay floating around New York.

Hello and Goodbye, DR Edisaurus!  I'm so sorry, I honestly didn't see you there this morning or I certainly would have said "hello" AND "goodbye"!

The truth is, when I got up this morning, my eyeglass frames fell apart!  So I was sitting here quinting at the screen and barely got some posts in.  I've got them taped together well enough to drive over to an optical store to see what they can do.

Good morning, all!   Yes, DR edi, DAVID COPPERFIELD was made into a second-rate musical in the early 1980s and conducted by my friend Larry Blank with orchestrations, I recall, by the late great Irwin Kostal.  The wonderful Carmen Matthews was Aunt Betsy and George S Irving Mr Micawber.

BK, have you called Mr Rodney Gilfry? He'd be good for a BAKER'S WIFE number like "Merci, Madame" or something else.  He said to call him about getting together and I left you his number.

Back to Toyland this morning, and after that, who knows?

TOD:
   SALEM'S LOT is my favorite vampire story after DRACULA.
   THE SHINING terrified me the first time I read it; it was a post-surgery gift from DR Ginny around 1977.
   CARRIE is a better film than a book, I believe, but the musical was an abomination.
   The short stories and DANSE MACABRE are quite wonderful

I think a lot of Mr King's later novels have good points but suffer from lack of pruning (I thought IT would never end!) that a good, or really strong, editor might have prevented.

There was a Broadway musical COPPERFIELD in the very early 1980's.  It was the first show in which I saw the divine Mary Stout.

I had the strangest dream last night.  There was an after-hours HHW gathering in DR Cillaliz's basement rumpus room.  I know DR Miss Karen was there, but the rest is rather hazy.

Was this gathering after all the HHW folks helped me move all the boxes and clean the basement? Otherwise there wouldn't be room for a gathering down there  ;D

The cooler weather continues, and I continue to be thrilled about it. High today of 70. That is the best news I've had in ages!

I'm really glad Cilla decided not to use a shotgun to get the kleenex box off of her kitty's head!

LOL, no and she was so freaked out I just couldn't take the time to get the camera and take a photo.  I had to help her right away
