Pac, sorry to hear about your water woes. I hope it all gets sorted quickly.

Laurie, sorry to hear about your rough night. (((Gentle hugs))) That was awfully sweet of TB.

I don't want to see you lose too much more weight. {{{{{{{{{{{{{Addie}}}}}}}}}}}}}
I limit what fruit I take in. Due to the natural sugar. I could afford to lose another 30 pounds and still be healthy.

I think I'm an addict. After watching the first live performance of The Sound of Music a few weeks ago with Carrie Underwood, I watched the reprise the following week. Now I discovered the original with Julie Andrews is on ABC.

I think Carrie got a bad rap when they compared her to Julie. First the script was a bit different, and even Julie wouldn't attempt to do it live today. Julie was America's sweetheart. She could do no wrong.

Whew, my water heater is finally lit again.
Now I'll find out how quickly it recovers. I need a shower and the DW needs run.

I found Carrie's performance to be charming, so I watched it twice! And I've seen Julie's performance about 4 or 5 times. Love the musical!

You're not an addict until you know all the words to ALL of the songs...

Thank Goodness, I thought maybe we would have to do an intervention...but only if you promise to grill for us.

It was different!! The choir was dispersed throughout the audience. Unfortunately not much effort was made to seat the sopranos, tenors, baritones, etc together. The only person up front was the conductor. There were about 10 times the audience rose to sing in unison. The soloists were outstanding though. Taos has many professionally trained voices and the concert was beautiful. There were a few times that is sounded a bit bad in the back of the audience. I often wondered if it was a pleasant experience for the conductor, trying to keep the audience somewhat together!
