First of all, we had a little excitement last weekend here in Sandwich… A car (I should say the person DRIVING the car) apparently thought the drive up window at Walgreens was a drive THROUGH window at the front door…At any rate, it caused a bit of commotion at the local store, and luckily not one person was injured…but the plate glass in the front of the store was totally wiped out!!
I just HATE when this happens…Can you imagine being in line at the checkout with your prescription in one hand and bottle of wine in the other (that’s just how I roll , and NO I wasn’t there).. when suddenly…CRRRRRASH!!!!???? Glass raining down and flying everywhere, people screaming, and the still running car now sitting inside the store! “CLEAN UP ON AISLE, NO WAIT A MINUTE….AISLES 1,2 AND 3…hmmmmm…MAYBE 4!!”…Perhaps the gas pedal stuck, or maybe someone hit the gas instead of the brake…At any rate…it sure gave us something to talk about for a few days, and it does give a totally new meaning to “drive through”…..
We had a cold and windy weekend here, and I am getting a very bad attitude. McGyver and I look like Mr. and Mrs. “Nanook of the North”, out hunting for whale blubber when we walk in the mornings..and I, for one, am tired of dragging my winter coat, hat and gloves out of the closet…If we were sure the grass wouldn’t need a machete, we would stay in Texas until April!! The weather person on TV says it is suppose to be 85 here by Wednesday…He also says he has some ocean front property for sale in Phoenix..yeah, right.
We did have one very bright spot to our weekend here. Dennis and I went to see Taylor, our 13 year old granddaughter, perform in “Thoroughly Modern Millie” at the Harter Middle School. (Harter is the school for 6th, 7th and 8th grades students). You may remember that this was a 1967 movie starring Julie Andrews….I sure do remember that movie! I remember I wanted to BE Millie, moving to New York and on her own, or else Marlo Thomas of “That Girl”…OK, now I’ll bet I’ve lost a few of you….But, believe me when I say it was every young girl’s dream.!
All I can say is that these kids are soooo talented at such a young age…Not me…I had ONE line in a play when I was a high school Junior and I was scared to death and almost collapsed before I went on stage!!
That adorable, sweet and small young woman in green would be Tay….She is the smallest in the cast, I do believe….
She was cast as Rita, one of the Priscilla girls staying at the hotel where Millie was staying…NO FEAR HERE!!
These kids had to learn to tap dance…I use to have tap shoes and I took tap dance lessons…Now I just tap dance when confronting something I don’t like….
Am I overdoing the photos?? Am I becoming obnoxious??? Probably….As Judy would say, “Tough Beans!” Am I proud?? DARN TOOTIN’!!..and I won’t apologize for it…
McGyver and I have to pinch ourselves every so often…We are soooo blessed to have such a wonderful family..every last one a keeper…WHAT A LIFE, EH??
FABULOUS JOB, TAY!!!! KEEP ON DOING WHAT YOU LOVE!!!!
