    I hate to brag, but I gotta…just a little bit.  There is a professional theater company in this region that hires people to do plays…i mean, they get paid to do parts and they do tons of the plays.  Well, I’m not into movies, plays, etc., myself, but my daughter and grandson are.  Anyway, he auditioned for the part of Tiny Tim in the Christmas Carol this year…and, crazy enough, he got hired for the part.  He’ll be making more a month for the two months that they work him than I ever made in my life…how’s that for a second grade education?  LOL…anyway…we are excited…I don’t have the clothes you gotta wear to these performances, they are never videoed, and can’t afford th admission cost…but daughter can get us half price tickets and I’ll find some kinda “non-hick costume ” I can wear for whichever night we can go to see it.  We’ll just see the one performance…they put on a buncha of them.  I hope he still talks to us after this is over…lol.

    That is fantastic!  I’m not surprised after seeing him in your belly-dancing (substitute) act!

    Thanks for inserting that very important parenthetical info, Angela…lol.  I can assure everyone it’ll be a cold day way down yonder when I ever even get close to thinkin’ about belly dancing. Well, Steve and Angela, thanks…hopefully he will do the theatrical break a leg…I think he has to be on crutches or carried around as Tiny Tim, during the show.  We are all proud, plus stunned…did not really expect him to land the part. ..they just thought it would be a fun experience for him to practice saying a poem with a British accent in front of strangers at an audition. I wish I could film it, but it’s a professional theater organization and there ain’t no breaking the rules in that place. We’ll just have to do our best to soak it all in for the one night we can attend.  Or…maybe i could wear grandson’s hotwheels car camera on top of my head during the show…maybe????  Wouldn’t look weird or anything, would it?

    Thanks, guys…except I’m no performer, just daughter and grandson…lol…i just like to play my music…wherever or whenever.  John, there won’t be any videos as this is a professional theater and they are very strict about copyright, etc.  The only things that go out are photos they make themselves for advertisement of their plays.  Nothing else goes out…no videos, no photos, etc.  After the shows they have to dress up and meet members of the audience for question and answer…this is like a black tie event…lol…the one night we go, I seriously don’t think I’m up for dressing up the part…I hope they don’t kick me out if I just find some old black jeans and some kinda…whatever to go with them…it’ll be wintertime, so I can hide behind my jacket…which is worn, dirty, ripped up…you know…the way you get running around the woods through all the stickers and such.  I’m not up for the costumes the audience has to wear…the black tie business…my greatest challenge will be figuring out how to dress…then, like I said…i’m so tempted to stick that velcro hotwheels camera car strap onto my head and get the 20 minutes of video you can get from a hotwheels car…lol…I’m sure they’d send me to jail if I even thouht about that hard enough.

    A big congrats to Roro!   Whatever his future, keep this boy well away from that evil land called ‘Hollywood’!

    This is true, Cricket. But I would recommend that you opt for something other than the Moo Moo and runners!   🙂
