Treasure Island - Forrest Theater, Carmel by the Sea

As is my custom, when attending theatrical performances, I would like to write a review of Treasure Island now playing at the Forrest Theater. However, my review will be incomplete as I was only able to attend the last half of the show. Do to a few "hiccups" on the way to Carmel from Gualala state park campground, Clayton and I arrived to the said theater at intermission. We stayed for the rest of the performance so I would like to give you what little I can in case anyone would like to attend. The play closes this weekend if you plan to go.

It was cute. The props were awesome, as always, the atmosphere was light and fun (we attended the 2:00 pm matinee on Sunday) and everyone seemed to be in a jolly mood. I did have some problems with the acting however. Young Jim Hawkins left a lot to be desired. OH sure . . . he had his words memorized, but there was no feeling or emotion behind them. ok, ok. . he is a kid . . . but still!! Long John Silver was great along with Ben Gunn. Many of the others were somewhat pitiful actors.

Overall, entertaining but would not go back to watch the entire preformance.

Now.. . . next month they are showing Alice in Wonderland in which we plan to attend. I will write another review at that time :-)

New buddy

This lil'guy showed up on mine and clayton's doorstep about a month ago begging for love, attention and food. We put him in our backyard with food and water but were going out of town for the weekend. When we came back he was GONE! oh no! I happened to see him in our next door neighbors back yard and when he noticed me there, ended up escaping from their backyard to ours. We checked with our neighbors and they were going to take him to the pound. I decided it was a good idea to take him to the parents house (though they didn't think it was a very good idea) After a few days of trying to find a home for him, Clayton thought he was going to take him to the pound. I kinda fell in love with the little guy and convinced my parents to keep him on a temporary basis . . . he is still there :-)

We named him Jack (sometimes referred to as Jackie-Chan by myself and Jack-Squat by my lovely mother) . . . Jack has had some very trying times, escaping the house to be found on the other side of a very main road, being backed up over by a toaster car and having pulmonary contusions, eating a variety of dead animals and leaving them in pieces on the front yar. . but continues to remain OUR DOG! he's a sweetie

. . . whewww. . . it has been a while. . . .

I decided to recommence my blogings and pull away from other social networkings. There is so much more to share with a blog . . life experiences, travels, feelings. . .

I didn't know really how to start. . . so I thought I would start by thanking my parents . . . they are truley amazing people and I am so proud to call them my parents. Thank you for always being my encouragement and my security. As I now start my own life adventure (marrige, new house, perhaps children) I want to thank you for everything that you have helped me to become and the keys to success that you have put in my life . .

I love you both more that you will ever know!
