Well, you've read the notes, you're now feeling a little akimbo, and now it is time for you to post until the akimbo cows come home.

Glad DR MICHAEL S is recovering.

Lunch With Cousins - isn't that a Jane Austin novel?

I got my MAD MEN dvd's yesterday.

MR BK - last Sunday when I ordered them.....the regular DVD's were $9.99 for the first two season and $12.99 for the third season, but the Blu Ray discs were $12.99 and $13.99 and would not ship for three to five weeks.....what day did you order the Blu Ray discs for $9.99?

Saturday morning greetings!  It's snowing here in SW Ohio - perfect for my plans to continue decking the halls.  Richard has to attend a funeral service and then go to the final Messiah rehearsal before tomorrow's performance.

Good morning, all! I went to bed around 10:30 and slept solidly until around 4 am. Then, I was wide awake for what seemed eternity. I finally passed out but I was to tired to get up when the alarm went off at 7:30. I slept until 8:30 and figured the time was nigh.

I have Act One edits on LADY OF THE SLIPPER at Toyland but I must first stop at the post office to mail the music for the January 5 recording session to baritone Jonathan Michie, currently with the Miami Fla Opera, who will replace Steven LaBrie in the session. Steven has scheduling problems, as you may recall, and he asked to be replaced.

I think tonight I will try to catch up on those Netflix discs sitting here and ponder my Christmas lists.

I once wrote a song with the word "akimbo" in it. Can't remember much about it, except it rhymed, of course, with "bimbo."

BK, back when Julieanne was President of the Hollywood branch of the LA  library, I used to go around and pick up books that people were donating to the library for book sales.  So I always got to have first pick of stuff, and I scored a huge cache of THEATRE ARTS magazine, over a hundred volumes from 1948 to about 1964.  They are, of course, great from an historical point of view; but also had a complete play in each issue...and big, important plays.
