Went off to Thomasville this past Sunday to see a production of Guys and Dolls put on by the TOSAC theater group there. My friend/musical partner Karen is involved with them -- she served as assistant director and stage manager for this show -- so I was able to get a free ticket (and be at the post-show cast party). A pretty decent performance; being close to the big college town of Tallahassee helps with the talent pool!
Speaking of college towns, I'll be off to Tuskegee again on the 30th of this month to do a recording job. Dr Wayne Barr, the head of the music department, has asked me to record his organ recital for the second year in a row. It's nice to know that your work is good enough to get repeat business, even though it always sounds lacking to my ears. And, killing two little birdies with one stone, it gives me a chance to see my friend Lynda who also teaches up there. Nothing like being paid to go visit a girl, is there?
Today is my mom's birthday. 87 and going strong. That most certainly calls for a chocolate cake and a bottle of good wine, doesn't it?
