Hangin' With the Kid and Grandkids Part 2

The kid and grandkids seemed to enjoy the play at the Schoolhouse Theatre the other night. It was probably the first actual play the grandkids have been to so I was skeptical. The play was Lucky Stiff, a musical farce. They both said they enjoyed it so I guess they did. Their dad and I also told them a lot about when we did theatre--back in the day. Dave and Karen grew up at the Fort Findlay Playhouse where I directed, acted, did tech etc. The kids both were in plays and worked tech on many, many shows. Anyway, it was fun reminiscing.

Yesterday was pretty much spent just chilling. We spent a lot of time on the deck reading. Mr. Snowbird, Dave and I are all reading Randy Wayne White books. And today, Sam caught the bug and he is now hooked also.

Last night Dave, the grandkids and I went to play miniature golf. I hadn't played in years but didn't do too badly. We really had a lot of fun and hit Schnappers afterwards for ice cream. Yum.

As evidenced by the pictures, we have been eating most of our meals out on the deck. The weather has been perfect this week. In the 70's and 80's. We have been grilling on the grill. Steaks the other night and brats and burgers last night. Again, yum!

Today, we will probably head to the beach. And tonight we will go out to eat.

Oh, and by the way, today is Mr. Snowbird's and my 46th wedding anniversary. Happy Anniversary to us.

I used to "do theater" too - community and regional musical theater, directed a couple of times, stage managed a couple of times, and then somehow moved into exclusively "doing opera" when I was around 30. It's crazy trying to perform and have a whole 'nother career and finish school all simultaneously. I'm exhausted just thinking about it! Every now and then, I get the urge to hit the stage again... and then the urge passes. LOL
