Let the Sun Shine!

Finally, finally after three weeks we had two real days of sunshine. No umbrellas for two whole days. I'd almost forgotten how good that feels. I did some running around -- banks, post office, pharmacy and groceries -- and got to services and to two plays.

"The Tin Pan Alley Rag" is about a meeting between Irving Berlin and Scott Joplin. The acting was very good and the music -- Berlin and Joplin -- even better. It was a totally enjoyable evening.

The second play, "Archbishop Supreme Tartuffe" is a very loose Gospel version of Moliere's "Tartuffe." Tartuffe is pictured on the currency above. The music was great and the cast, which included Andre de Shields (on the currency) who I'd seen in "Ain't Misbehavin" years ago and Ted Lange, Isaac Washington on "The Love Boat" were terrific. It was a completely fun afternoon.

Wishes to all for a great week!

We had a lot of rain here too. Then poof, it was gone. Now nothing!

Sounds like you were very busy. The two plays sounded great.

And now it's Monday! :)
