It was so much fun to go see the Broadway production of 'How to Succeed in Business...' on Saturday afternoon and, then, sit in the hotel room on Sunday night and watch John Laroquette win the Tony Award for his performance in that play. We hit the deli on the corner and relaxed in our room with great food every evening. Great way to make sure we were ready to go again the next day!
Stacy and I went to Antigo and bought 28 pounds of strawberries from which we made 52 half-pints of strawberry freezer jam, plus we had a lot to eat fresh as well as quite a few that we packaged up and froze. The month of June wasn't very helpful (from a weather standpoint), so we weren't even sure that there would be any ripe berries, but we got lucky! On the drive over, we saw a black bear cross the road and spotted some vultures circling over something on our way back.
The stage production was a lot of fun and very faithful to the book, and held outside under a lovely star-filled sky. I wrote up the whole thing for the Wisconsin JASNA newsletter.
No more travels during 2011, but September marked the beginning of the new theatre season at the PAC and, with my season tickets, I'm expecting to have mini-adventures each time I hear the opening bars of the music!
