A Performance of “Guys and Dolls”, and One of the “Dolls” was Our Granddaughter!


  Well, FINALLY, out weather is acting as it should be…warm and 72 degrees today.  Den and I got lots done outside.  I washed windows upstairs and down, got out our birdbath.  Den cleaned out the gutters with the hose and then he rototilled out garden…I planted lettuce,spinach and radishes…so far.  We still have Yukon Gold and Red potatoes to plant, plus some tomato plants and pepper plants.  I also got our cactus out of the basement and hung up the hummer feeders (they had better be  here soon!!) ….But guess who just showed up at our feeders…


I was soooo excited to see these birds finally made the trip!! We have had Purple Finches already, but the yellow ones must have missed the first flightWinking smile!


I feel like my attitude is much improved with the improved temperatures…Last week, I was dressed like Nanook of the North for our morning walks..Ninja

   Our basement is now dry, and so it Jr. and Jeanette’s.  (This , too, will improve one’s bad attitude!)…Sooooo, all is now well in Casa la Cave ( for the time being).

Yesterday, the Harter Middle School put on a performance of “Guys and Dolls”…Some of you more mature adults might remember the movie, (done in 1955Surprised smile)…starring Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons, Vivian Blaine and Frank Sinatra.  Who can forget the classic songs, “Luck Be A Lady Tonight”, Sit Down You’re Rockin’ The Boat, I Love You, A Bushel And A Peck”…and many others…Our granddaughter, Taylor, had a roll as one of the Hot Box Girls, which allowed  her to do some dancing and singing…Did I take pictures? ….Do birds fly??? YOU KNOW I DID!!!


Tay is the one in the white dress that looks 12 years old and is really 14 1/2….



I cannot believe how many very talented kids there are out there…Everyone in this performance was “spot on” in their singing, dancing and acting!  The following is a 49 second video.  TURN UP  YOUR SOUND AND ENJOY THESE TALENTED KIDS…

The grand finale of the musical!

We had a great time….and of course her Dad presented her with flowers afterward….


LIFE IS SOOO GOOD FOR THE CAVE FAMILY..WE ARE BLESSED! (and I’m not PROUD at all, right?Rolling on the floor laughing


  1. It is good that the basement is dry, cactus is out, and that Tay was great in Guys and Dolls. What more could anyone ask for????

  2. Gosh she looks like didn't fall far from that tree.

  3. Aren't grands simply the best? You have a right to be proud - enjoy!!!

  4. I always love when you post Taylor's performances. She is so beautiful and talented. I know just how you feel! It's so fun to watch our granddaughters blossom.

  5. Thanks for posting the video - it was terrific and those kids can sing! Your granddaughter Taylor is a "Doll" and perfect for her part in the play!

    1. Thanks, Rick...We think so too, but we ARE a bit biased!

    2. Really??? Just, a bit??? You should be biased - and very proud!! I would be.

  6. congrats to Taylor and the cast of Guys and Dolls! yet another great performance!!

  7. Life is just about perfect for the Cave clan! Taylor did well, looked good, and the whole cast sounded fabulous. We hear that Guys and Dolls is going to be remade soon. Maybe they should come out to listen to Taylor's group so they know how it ought to be done!

    1. Thanks,you two! I am constantly in awe of this age group kids and how unafraid they are to get up on stage..I would have wet myself at that age!! STAY WELL OUT THERE!!!
