I have mentioned before that I used to be involved in Community Theatre-The Fort Findlay Playhouse. I haven't done anything there in years except last June when I took part in a presentation of old radio scripts. I loved it because there were only a few rehearsals and nothing to memorize since they read scripts on the old radio shows. I played Mrs. Anderson in Sorry Wrong Number--a role created by Agnes Moorhead who I think was a fantastic actress. I had a ball doing it and had hoped to take part in this year's show but I had a conflict. Anyway, tonight was the Playhouse's Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet. Since I'm not a member anymore and only took part in the one show, I didn't go. Bill, who lives with us and who is very active in the Playhouse of course attended. I had even forgotten that tonight was the banquet until he walked in tonight and presented me with an Excellence in Acting for a Female in a Major Role. I about passed out!! I had no idea that the radio shows were even considered for awards. So, wow!! I am thrilled and I couldn't be more surprised. Geez, I didn't even have an acceptance speech ready. Anyway, I had to brag a wee bit.
