I Have No Pictures to Share...


...but the play, "A Steady Rain" was good and I got to shake Hugh Jackman's hand. This happened five hours ago and I am still walking on air.
Some time in September I was thinking about all the treats -- plays, concerts etc., that come to New York in the fall. Everything sounded so good, but I knew I' had to choose. I thought what would I like to see more than anything else? "A Steady Rain" was my answer. None of my friends seemed especially interested and I was pretty sure the tickets would sell out, so I went ahead and got myself a ticket. I've been waiting for this day since Labor Day weekend.
After the show I waited by the stage door figuring I could get a photo to share with all of you. It was dark and too crowded to get a good shot, but I was in the second row and I stuck out my hand and Hugh Jackman smiled right at me and shook my hand. I didn't worry about hand sanitizer and didn't think about swine flu, my hand was out there!
Thanks all for your concerns about my tooth. I have a 3:30 appointment tomorrow to see the dentist. I spent every scrap of disposable income last year tending to a fractured tooth and I am taking good care of this one. I'm joining in counting a blessings for each day of November and my blessing for today -- besides my new friend, Hugh Jackman -- is my wonderful dentist, Dr Z. and her terrific staff.
Wishes to all for a week of wonderful surprises and sweet pleasures

Even though we experienced a good deal of rain we certainly enjoyed visiting your city for the past week!

Oh Buttercup, I'm sorry about your tooth...I started monday off with a trip to the dentist and ended up with an appointment to see an Oral Surgeon.....But Hugh Jackman would have made things look a lot brighter for me....Feel better soon!
