Just got back from a wonderful performance of Brigadoon by the students of the Fine Arts department at Indian River Community College. There were 13 major parts, 18 villagers/chorus, 31 in the live orchestra, 10 crew members and several in box office and such -- almost 90 students giving their all for the community and their art.

And, art it was -- acting, singing, dancing and instrumental -- an absolutely first class performance that left me laughing, feeling chills down my spine, crying and cheering. All 8 performances over 2 weeks were sold out.

Wow.

I'm still on a high, but decided to check in here for the latest foolishness before hitting the sack.

We ran into the drama professor before the play began, and had a pleasant conversation. 20 years ago, our daughter performed in several of his productions and starred in one, a difficult drama entitled, Royal Hunt of the Sun. He told us he had recently located the original video tape of that production and is about to transcribe it to DVD -- he's making us a copy. We're thrilled; we can't wait for our grandchildren to see their Mommy when she was 16.

Uh -- you can't tell that I'm a little bit proud, can you?

I have been rewiring my home network, fixing a computer for a friend, and building my new robotic lawnmower. This will be a gift for my parents, I just have to figure out how to make the mower seek and chase zoning inspectors....
