Cute DR Jose.  It doesn't look to me like your lemonade sellers were inside the park.

Well, I was wondering if that was them post-Riverside Park, post-ticket - since the original story mentioned that they set-up shop in the lobby of their building after they left the park.  -They made $19!

*I just really wish I would have snapped a pic of the sandwich boards that that group of kids had made.  Now those were cute!

Not sure, DR Jane.  If the daughter who lives in NW Ohio is still in town, she's probably staying with her sister, who lives nearby.  She only stayed with us last week because her sister's household had bronchitis.

I forgot the reason she stayed with you, thinking it had been a full house at her sister's.

Continued vibes of strength & comfort!

Speaking of high school, I am going to meet a girl from high school who contacted me via Facebook.  She was a very nice girl and was my girlfriend (kind of) when I was 14.  Haven't seen her in about 37 years or so.  We've probably changed a little since then.  Just a little bit.  ::)

I've been chatting on FB with John's youngest daughter.  The older 2 are now both home with their families, as it should be.

Yes, nothing like the comfort of your family.  When my mother passed away we had just moved & Keith had a new job.  He stayed home while I took the boys to L.A.  They stayed with my in-laws & I stayed with my father.  It would have been much nicer if we all could have stayed together.

Good OLTL today as Kyle made another play for Fish who initially responded but then Kyle covered for him in front of Cristian and you could see the ice begin to melt. This should get very interesting in the weeks to come.

DR MattH - Since I don't watch "OLTL" - Is the character's name really "Fish"?

Yes, Oliver Fish.

I finished the last of the Japanese noirs tonight - A COLT IS MY PASSPORT. A cat and mouse plot with a hitman and his best friend being persued by the gang whose boss he rubbed out. Not as good as the previous two or three films, but still very good.

I enjoyed that set, but I am SO glad to have that set behind me. When you're dealing with those Japanese names and actors you aren't the least bit familiar with, it's daunting reviewing so many films in the same package.

When I finished that, I wanted to veg out without needing to follow a plot or anything, so I watched STARDUST: THE BETTE DAVIS STORY. Just the right documentary to relax and watch.

Then I completed my evening viewing with tonight's THE CLOSER. I echo other reponses to its wonderful, tender, and touching story. I pretty much figured it out before we got the identity of the killer, but it was still very moving.

Ah, Thank You.  I was thinking that "Fish" might have been an "Olive", if you get my drift. ;)

I have a big day tomorrow. I haven't decided if I'm going to go to the trouble of going for the license renewal again tomorrow morning or not. I think it will depend on how I feel.

I went and did a two-mile jog just before it got dark.  Then I finished the awful movie - Tango and Cash.

Well, here's a puzzle that I think may actually challenge - or even stump - a couple of DRs:

Play Broadway Musical Squares

For some reason I have an urge to get some bossa nova music.  Any suggestion? JMK, aren't you into bossa nova?

That's like saying, I have the urge to get some chocolate.  ;)  Too much good stuff to try to pick.  What are you in the mood for?  Vocals?  Instrumentals?  You can't go wrong with Antonio Carlos Jobim (Girl from Ipanema, Corcovado, etc.).  If you're new to bossa nova, start with him.

I believe TANGO AND CASH was the rejected first title for EVITA.

Well, we had call-backs tonight.  Everyone read a couple of scenes and then we had the dance section.  Some danced better than others, but I don't think anyone was horrible.  For the singing, we sang through the title song, both the narrator's intro part in unison and the first chorus.

But there was a problem with the music, BK!  Josh, the director/music director was running the audition, and was playing from the piano/vocal score.  We just had the vocal parts.  However, when he started teaching us the chorus parts at the "People of Earth beware this warning..." section, he was playing notes that were not in our music!  Our music only had two vocal lines...the men were starting on a D-flat above middle C and the women were supposed to sing a B-flat above that, in harmony with each other, but Josh played different notes.  When we realized that they're different, I looked at his score and he had four-note chords for that section.  Josh said that we'll learn what is in his vocal score, but if it's different than the music that the singers have, it'll be a hassle.

Hopefully, this will be all be fixed by the time rehearsals start. :-\
