Doubleheader

Actually this post has nothing to do with baseball. I'd written a "D" post and was all set to go with it. But last night I saw Debbie Reynolds and couldn't not share it here. So there are two "D" topics for today. Debbie was a good mile off-Broadway, the second topic returns us to Broadway.  


I'm also a good mile from the stage -- from my spot in the balcony -- and the figure in the black pants outfit is Debbie Reynolds. I promise it is! She was funny, quirky and still so adorable. Not surprisingly, it was a lot of fun and I put seeing "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" near the top of my to-do list.

My original thought for today was "Dog Day Afternoon." We love our pooches on the Upper West Side and it's a rare walk outside my apartment building when I don't see dogs being walked. This morning, on my three block walk to the subway, I counted six dogs being walked.




I like both of these pictures. They're not extraordinary pictures, but they are so typical of a Saturday afternoon in my neighborhood. People are going into one of the local coffee shops, walking their dogs or doing errands and carrying their purchases home. 

I'm really enjoying Blogging from A to Z Challenge and I've met some of the nicest new blog buddies. I feel like I'm at a fun party, where everyone is friendly and I am so lucky to have been invited. My featured blogger of the day is a dear blogger friend, who is also blogging from A to Z. Please stop by and visit sweet Lura. I know you will have a wonderful visit. 

I hope you had a Delightful Thursday and have a perfectly Elegant Friday.

I am loving your posts! I saw "Unsinkable Molly Brown" years ago, as well as the "Tammy and the Bachelor" series. Debbie Reynolds has been a favorite of mine for many years. How exciting that you were able to see her!

Looking forward to Friday!

"The Unsinkable Molly Brown" is worth putting at the top of your to do list. ENJOY!

I so hope you enjoy watching "Unsinkable"!
Seeing her live must have been such fun.
For some crazy reason, Jennifer Anniston reminds me of her. Maybe it's jsut the unfortunate parallels I draw between Eddie/Debbie/Liz back then, and Brad/Jennifer/Angie today.

Aaaanyway, I love the pooch snapshots (you knew I would, didn't you?)

Have a great Friday!

I just realized UNSINKABLE is the name of Debbie's new autobiography. let us know how GOOD it is.

Glad you had fun seeing Debbie!

I like those pictures you posted too. They're very normal and perfectly captures your neighborhood for a person who has never been there (namely, me).

Thank you for mentioning me in you blog today my friend. I wish I could have gone with you to see Debbie. I'm glad you got to see her..... And thanks for the stroll in NYC. I too love dogs. I miss our Heidi since she died. Dogs become like family.

Have a good day tomorrow. I wonder What will be your E?

Baseball season is starting up soon, it won't be long now at all and I'm hoping for some warmer weather for the opening day. Enjoyed seeing and hearing about Debbie and also the dog walkers. Hope your Friday is a fantastic one!

Like Theresa, I saw her on a talk show this week also. She has not changed a bit. She looks younger than her daughter.

Debbie Reynolds has become one of the show business "grand dames" that are such treasures to see. Katy Couric is hosting three others--Mary Tyler Moore, Betty White and Valerie Harper. They are an inspiration to all of us!
