On Flamenco Monday

Oh wow … Summer-like weather descended on Cincinnati this past weekend – and it appears to continue throughout the upcoming week. How did you spend you weekend?

Our weekend was a small-bit slower than normal because we took it easy Saturday morning and early afternoon. Then again, we still had ballroom time, Quick Step formation practice, ushered at the Playhouse (Vania and Sonia and Masha and Spike), and I worked a shift.

The play was entertaining because a comedy with dysfunctional family members works. It could have been a bit shorter, but we enjoyed it … and given that we ushered, it was free. Here’s what is written on Wikipedia about the play, and take note of the original actors.

It’s possible that one of the posts this week will be something new – something I’ve never done before – believe it or not, writing fiction – but, I seriously doubt this will be a regular endeavor. We’ll see how the week goes.

On the First 2015 Monday

Greetings and Happy New Year … and welcome to 2015’s first Monday Morning Entertainment!

How did you spend time the past two weeks?

Our Christmas holiday was busy, thus included two 3-hour+ drives to family, a movie (The Imitation Game – aFa recommended!), an afternoon at a museum, hosting two dinners, attending two college basketball games, gatherings with friends, and (of course) a bit of ballroom time.

For those who enjoyed the Exploring series, please leave recommendations for future posts. Think person, place, or thing.

The start of the year is a good time to renew Life: The Musical … after all, only three acts remain. Act 15’s theme will the “Growing Old”, so song titles must include old, older, oldest, elderly, or aging. Act 15 starts Wednesday at 9:30 PM (Eastern US).
