oh and PS -- click on the member spotlight and scroll down for an OLD picture of me if so inclined -- warning may inducing fainting LOL!

on pic -- recede hairline, add lots more gray to hair and wrinkles to face, then add enough pounds for a "proper double chin" (quote from Fiddler on the Roof -- yes, I AM a theatre geek -- can you id the song?)

Well, thanks for letting us know!

I was beginning to think you were in the witness protection program, because the thread asking where you went was deleted ~ twice!

Glad you're okay, just "a little" busy!

Yes, I can ID that song. "If I Were a Rich Man." I worked as part of the costume crew in college. I cried every night, because the play was just so powerful. "Sunrise, Sunset" was one of our wedding songs at our Catholic/Christian wedding.

My favorite modern musical is "Rent." I see it every time the tour comes to town. I guess I'm a theatre geek too.

Well, make that 6PM

finally, a few brief moments to relax

(oh and this week is end of the 1st quarter at school -- can we say grades?)

____

and BRAVO to my fellow theatre geeks jonahsmom and adonisthegreek1 for IDing the song. -- yes that is a beautiful, powerful musical. Someday I want to do Tevye.
