I don't like to do this, but figure it's better to do this as an Update than even try to find a story to post this week.  I'm so "out of it"  I don't believe I could think my way out of a paper bag. has a photo that is a great visual of how I feel.

Stanislavski said "There are no small parts, only small actors."  I agree.  I just wish I hadn't agreed to be in a play right now.  Didn't even audition for it, but the director is a friend who was in need and  told me "only 1 line and 2 weeks of rehearsals."  It's been 4 weeks and we open this Friday.   I'm onstage for all court scenes and see myself as reacting as I hope the audience will. 

If you're here in the metro area, I hope you can come.  (The play version is very different from the movie.)

Déjà vu

I've never done this before and don't plan to do it regularly, but this was on my Facebook page.  I think you can see why I'm taking this very personal shortcut.

This week has been deja vu time @ St. Joe Mercy hospital. Years ago my older daughter had brain surgery there. Remember seeing 4th of July fireworks from the window. Monday I took my husband there & he's still there with a bad leg infection.

Nobody home to walk or feed our dog, so I can't stay the night there this time. It's cooler for the dog then, so I took him for a nightime walk. Fireworks everywhere made it sound like a war zone + some in the air. The "Magnificent Beastie" had no reaction, just another walk. Last year he went to Frankenmuth & a fireworks display. The only thing was the tons of fans wanting to pet him. With our current heat & storms I wish the 3 of us were there again.

Fortunately as of Tuesday I have off rehearsals from Pontiac Theatre IV's play of Grisham's "A Time to Kill" until Monday. Then it's "Hell Week" -- the final week until we open July 12 at the Pontiac Little Art Theatre.

I know, I know, when this all ends I'll be bored, but right now I WANT MY ROADIE BACK! . . . the one with the banjo!!! (Shh, don't tell him 'cause I give him a hard time about that banjo.)

Hopefully next week will be back to what passes for normal.
