If I sew it, They will come

It is a little known fact that the plots for the scripts I write for the SEO Regional Theater are determined by what costumes or sets I feel like making.  I know, how self-indulgent!  This year’s play, which is scheduled to take the stage on December 3,4,& 5, 2010 is a western.  The Buzzard’s Gulch Christmas Caper is my self-indulgent nod to the late 18 early 1900’s wild west.  I wanted to make can-can girl dresses, frock coats and a little red silk number with a bustle.  Lucky for me, the rest of the Theater Guild is happy to go along with the program.  I love this play, it has just about everything, comedy, tragedy, a mysterious stranger, a love story.

While I was away, my youngest daughter got married and had a baby (you know you’ve been gone too long when you can fit all that in!)  Eventually I’ll post pictures.  I would have done it today except there are no pictures on this computer.  They’re stored on my other computer..which has decided to crash just for the fun of it.  Or…they could be on the portable hard drive that is located in one of my purses.  If I really think about it, the pictures might be on that CD I found under the desk…I really have to get organized.

    Sounds a really good laugh, all the guys dressed in Wyatt Earp & Doc Holliday type clothes. That will certainly keep you even more busy in the next few weeks. Good luck.

    Glad to have you back. I went to Fab Follies Sunday. It is a local dance/song revue in which all participants are 50 or older. My neighbor is a long time member. She said the dressmaker who does their costumes remakes basics over and over for a completely different look. She does a fantastic job, and so did the hoofers. I’d love to see your Buzzard Gulch play. Sounds incredible.

    ahhh, the stories of the annual Christmas play! This is a sly insight you never provided before.

    Nice to catch up with you and your family, but you’re falling behind again. I suppose your excuse is that the play is in full swing. I hope you’re going to share some video.

    Haha, I like the way you decide what to write. It’s as good a way as any other.

    Yes, I agree, you’ve been away too long 🙂

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
