This Night Owl Blog has given so much!
It is a fun place, we don't bash and we have fun being "tedious"!
We offer advice, give love, lots of free food and an open forum which can be about anything that is important, thought provoking or just plain silly.
And sometimes we just March (some to different drummers, but all together). :)
It is not about a single person, it is about all the people on any given day blended together.....Goldie!
went to see Les Miserables........in Dallas.......with Michael's
sisters. We have been talking and thought it would be good to go see it
together. We decided to meet half way~ lol~ I flew 3 hours and they drove 3 hours to Dallas.
was such a liar!!!! His sisters, Janet and Vicki, are nicer than nice
can be. I kind of knew that already! I mean.....they put up with him,
didn't they?!!! We talked a lot....some about him....about growing
up...about our families.....we crocheted and knitted.....and ate.....and
talked some more.....and ate.....we talked fashion.....you
know.....like when to wear black and when not to~ We talked about
history....mostly about presidents~ I even learned some new things!
They were kind enough to bring me the scrapbook I had made for their
brother. They also brought all the cards I made him. I couldn't believe
he still had them. There were also some other odds and ends along with
pictures. It was quite a treat~ Before I left, I also got to meet Vicki's beautiful daughter and sweet grandchildren!
for the movie, we went prepared. I brought each of us a pack of
tissues. I felt kind of bad because, although I LOVED the movie and want
to see it again, it was getting toward the end and I couldn't imagine
myself crying. Then they started Bring Him Home.....and still nothing.
It didn't sound right. I looked over at Vicki and she was sobbing. By
the second verse, I lost it too. I was glad when the song was over and I
cleaned myself up! Well that was short-lived, because I cried two more
times! Michael and I would talk/e-mail all the time about musicals. We'd
talk about this one or that one.....which one was the latest craze....and
we'd always end up talking about Les Mis.....Our Favorite! Nothing ever
compared. He loved loved loved the innkeeper and his wife and Master of
the House. This was his favorite version.
also wanted to share our before and after pictures. Before the movie,
we kind of had to whore ourselves out to find someone to take our
picture. I, of course, was too shy to ask anyone. One of the sisters,
who shall be nameless, Vicki, was not! It's kind of hard to see the sign above our heads, but it's the name of the movie!
~ Vicki & Janet ~
a woman kindly took our picture outside. The horrid person said, right
before she took the first picture (which I'm not posting!), "Okay!
CRY!!!!" And so I did!!!!!! We had been wiping up our tears.....and
blowing our noses.....to get ready to take a picture.....and she tells
us to cry! The nerve!!!!!
