MY DAILY CALENDAR – DAY 308 – NOVEMBER 4, 2013

MY DAILY CALENDAR FOR MONDAY, DAY 308 OF 2013: Well, I survived changing all the clocks to end Daylight Savings Time, with the exception of one … my internal body clock.  For some reason, it seems to get harder and harder as I get older and moldier.  Guess that’s why older people are called groanups. OMG, it even hurts me to be punny this morning. Mlle. Renee is having trouble with the time change too. So she’s just taking extra naps. Every time she goes outside, she can’t figure out why the trees are throwing leaves at her.

BIRTHDAY BALLOON UPDATE: It started moving around the house again last night. IT’S ALIVE! DSC08133And yes, I did receive a Taco Bell Talking Dog for Christmas, but I had to put him someplace high because Renee thinks he’s a real dog who can talk. Either that, or she wants to unstuff him.

BookWorm BOOKMARK BOB’S MENSA PUZZLE OF THE DAY:DSC08132

Guess they made today’s puzzle an easy one for all the people whose internal clocks need a quick start.

IT’S SHOWTIME! Decided to share some of my memories of favorite plays and musicals I’ve seen on Broadway. Back in the 70’s and 80’s I served as the broadcast advertising director of the company for which I worked. The job required a lot of travel for production, filming and recording. So I managed to visit New York a least a couple of times each year.   Back then, you could go to a Broadway show without pawning your favorite fourpaw or waiting in line at TKTS for half price tickets. On my very first trip to NY, I arrived in the late afternoon and after checking in at the hotel I decided to take a stroll along the great white way. As I passed the 46th Street Theater I decided to check the box office to see if they had any tickets for the evening performance. They did have a single ticket available, and that evening I saw the original cast production of …1776

My seat was in the exact center of  the first row. The set featured a square raked stage with the point of the square projecting out over the orchestra pit into the audience. My seat was right in front of that point.  Imagine my first Broadway show … and all the key action of the show was being played within a couple of feet of my seat. It was an intimate evening with William Daniels, Ken Howard, Howard Da Silva and John Cullum seemingly performing just for me.  What an introduction to the Broadway Theater scene! And I never had a seat as good as that first one.
