And the high school spring musical will be - "Anything Goes!" Lots of tap dancing and fun. Our daughter's boyfriend is the high school choir and musical director. He also designs and builds most of the sets (our daughter helps with painting). He'll be very busy!

Annie Live "the musical" was on tv last night. We did not watch it but that reminded me that I saw the original first show at The Good Speed Opera House here in Connecticut with the very first Annie many years ago. Fast forward to today and the director of our high school musicals (along with our daughter's boyfriend who is the Music Director) is good friends with the now adult woman who played that first Annie. Small world!

It seems it is the season for losing parents. My mother slipped away peacefully last night. At 96 and almost completely blind, I'm sure she'll be pleased to be earning her wings. One of my sisters had a dream a couple of nights ago of her, young, pretty, and walking off hand-in-hand with Dad, who was also young and very good-looking. I posted a notice on my facebook page with a photo of her asleep in the sun on the couch with her two favourite cats.

I am so sorry, vyon. I hope my parents are doing the same thing.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss vyon

I didn't win any of the "Light Up" prizes but had a very nice walk downtown to watch the parade. The businesses that participated did a fabulous job and all the vehicles had loads of decorations, flashing lights, music and riders. There were several fire pits downtown where you could warm up as well as popcorn and hot chocolate. One place even had an adult version where you could get a shot of Baileys in your drink. That by the way, was my favourite stop.

We're losing several of the older buildings in town. They've sat vacant for many years and the cost to get them fixed was worth way more than the building ever would be. One on main street had been a thriving business until a vehicle ran into it. The owner took the insurance, kept the business going for a couple years then tried to sell it like it was in perfect shape. When it didn't sell he just let it sit and rot away and eventually let it go to the town for back taxes. So much history but you can't expect the town to pour money into things like that when there are far more pressing issues to deal with.

Mausey, we lost several lovely old homes in the center of town years ago. For whatever reason the owners sold off and the homes were replaced by ugly, modern bank buildings. Not what I would call progress but unless a place is labelled "historic" there is really nothing that can be done.

We got our Christmas tree and it is in the stand in the Living room but not decorated yet. After 69 years it finally occurred to me that I could wrap gifts/put under tree/fill stockings now and not wait until the last minute. So, I am doing that.

We got our daughter 2 of the 4 new all season tires for her car for Christmas (she paid for the other 2). They'll be on the car, not under the tree!

Pain
Virginia Korleski
Part 1
When loved ones pass away, they leave behind a hole in your heart.
A hole which never goes away, one that time alone will not heal

But, when you recall the good times with those you love and miss, the hole is
filled with their warm memories, which are kept safe in your heart.

When you reach your breaking point, recall those memories.
They are there behind you, encouraging you forward in life.

It may be hard to do, but you can do it.

Part 2
The memories still fire up pain as you get to the next crossroad in life.
You feel the pain of one loss be they a person you knew or an animal friend!

You recall all of the great things you did. Or that special one did.
The amazing, funny or sometimes the odd thing they did.

You keep those memories close to you heart; for you know in a way they say go for it! I may be gone but my spirit is behind you in anything you do.
Good to read, ben

Also, know they are just a thought away!!! That's what I do when it comes to my best friend, Albert!!! If you lost your best friend, they are standing right by your side!!! I lost him when I was 30!! I grieved for him for 2 and a half years! I used to talk to him on the phone alot! When he was sick and dying, I visited him in the hospital much as I could! His illness could have been caught early if he'd gone to a doctor when he first got sick!! He had Wilson's disease! He died in the evening, that morning I asked my manager for time off to visit him and she told me "no". That would have been the last time seeing him!!! Before he got sick, we'd be talking on the phone and I'd sense his distraction, I'd ask "are you busy?" " yes m'am, I am" I loved it when he'd say that, but I never told him!! To this day, I regret not telling him! He died 10 days shy of turning 41!

Zen Hugs, I hope my own work helped, I lost my mom quite quickly to a brain canncer, and I have also lost a fewfriends to what I think is the same type, non grandmother passed away from brest cancer in both of them,, but she whas eldry and dad didn't want to stress out her at over 80 years young, and I alsothink after she fell, she stqarted seeing folks long dead ready to join them with God., LLost my uncle shortly before Christmas,if he took better care of him self he would be here, we think.
I hope they are all enjoying them self up their, I think of thembowling when its thundering out, With Gramdma K playing the music,, Gramma W-K Making hats out of the empantry washed beer can,. that the other are whatching the show. LLLoL It makes it easier for me duringing storms.

Sorry but I was LOL at the mental image of car tires under the tree,, as a Writing 101 Words idea, Starting with Tree, Presents, and Tires ! Eh! Why Noght , I might have a Holiday idea, Like a Gift tree, Like On the Word Association or Mabey I well use that as a starter for a drabble idea I shall have to think, and Work Off line and then post, Anytakers?

I Histortic area, Wausau WI USA had a lot to do with the growth
in my area, I might now have a way to see and report more later, they give self guided tours, even a hunted one, Hometown Stories
Wausau is a good DDVD non audio discription , from a few years
back but quite good. Right now I have a idea brewing off a post or two, soso more later.iHistortic
