This evening, couretsy of my niece Lisa, one of the stage managers at 7 Stages Theatre in Little Five Points (a "hip" suburb of Atlanta), D and I were treated to a live performance of the musical "Hair".
It was special because this is the first real night out together we have had since we got re-married, and we really enjoyed ourselves.
I didn't know how D would react to the nude scene (it was her first time seeing it performed live), but she handled it well. (I must be "corrupting" her a little). When the actors removed their clothing, it was done very tastefully. Not one of them cracked a smile or flaunted anything, and if you're familiar with what takes place within the play itself, that was not a time for frivolity.
At the end ("Let The Sunshine In") everyone in the audience was invited on stage to dance with the actors, but because my leg is still in this damn "space boot", I had trouble even navigating the stairs to get to and from our seats, so I opted not to join them.
The play itself made me nostalgic, but watching the band, I realized how much I miss playing my drums. The drummer's parts were mostly rhythms I played in the 60's, 70's and 80's and I could easily imagine myself playing with that band!
On to other things....
I have an appointment with 2 Social Security Docs - one an MD and the other a psychiatrist on the 15th and 16th respectively. Since it's on Soc Sec's "dime", AND since they require it, I guess I better go!
Note to Becks: Saw you joined us "Dopers". WELCOME! We're the biggest dysfunctional "family" in the world!
This is a picture of Suzette's (my dementia counsellor) Bill. Yes, Virginia, she has one too. Didn't y'all know that all next door neighbors, ex-husbands, bartenders and uncles are named "Bill"? I don't know if her Bill IS any of those, but here he is with Murphy and Friend at last years "Memory Walk" for Alzheimer's Research. All three would like you to remember to sponsor a walk team and also to click and feed the animals as well as vote for Paulding Humane in The Shelter Challenge!
This is from "Hair". It's called 3-5-0-0, and it's about the Viet Nam "War", but it could also be about the one in Iraq and Afghanistan. They're all "Dirty Little Wars"!
Oh, my God, OMG! OH. MY. GOD!
My D isn't as "prim and proper" as I thought!
She must have watched the nude scene VERY closely, because she just now told me that that guy who played "Berger" was....... "well-endowed".
She ain't never told ME that. :(
