Readers Theater

“You participated in a Readers Theater presentation at the Texas Library Assoc. Conf.?” Admin says.

“Yes,” says Spence. “Kind of fun, and the audience seemed to enjoy it.”

“Meaning no one threw anything?”

    Good morning. I wonder what a Readers Theater is? We are sure that OFA had a grand time with it with his sense of humor.
    Alas, the rain has returned here. Hoping for a better weekend as we have a show tomorrow. Indoors, but bad weather keeps people away.

    Good Day Everyone.
    Friday already? So Much to Do. So Little Time.
    Back to the (Dungeon) Garage.

    10:39 am on April 17th, 2015

    Good morning all. Good luck with the show tomorrow T & G.

    Bear, Your Nana and her sister will have such a feeling of accompolishment when the garage cleaning is done.

    We also were wondering about a Readers Theater.

    At the office again. This 2 day a week job seems to be becoming a 3 day a week job. Barb told her boss that she will not work full time!

    Good morning. We have showers here too, but tomorrow should be nice. We hope that is true for the Royal ‘Rents as well.
    Thanks for that link, Bee. We were wondering about Readers Theatre too.

    Ok, now we get the Readers Theater thing. How fun would it be to be doing Chet?

    Barb – remember when Mama worked for the Crazy Lady? That started as a “part time” too. But at least you like your boss. And he isn’t crazy.

    Good Morning All–I’m about to go pour forth wisdom and knowledge (or at least talk about economics) and wanted to check in witchall first. those of you with rain, know that I envy you, and stay warm and dry. Conan continues to improve thanks to daycare under the quilt, and I’m hoping for a wonderful day for ALL of us.
    Be well, everyone.

    Zoe, every once in a while, you’ve just got to say,”What the hay!”
    Diane, gald that Conan is doing better BUT,beware, he may become a card shark if he stays around Tenzig much longer!

    Howlers: You’re making me laugh.

    Zoe: I’ve been cleaning up the garden and I’m finding that it’s not as easy as it used to be. Sigh….

    3:12 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Natasha: LOL! Have you ever wondered who designed spike heels? And then there are pointed toes….

  17. Meashka
    3:42 pm on April 17th, 2015

    My heels are not spiked and my toes are not pointed. In fact, I am rather perfect.

  18. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    4:06 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Vould you believe high heels vere invented by Catherine Medici?

  19. Herd of Hounds
    4:22 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Natasha, In keeping with an international theme, perhaps you could try Cuban stacked heels. Graceful height with a bit more support.

  20. Basil and Sage
    4:49 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Meashka – T.C. is perfect. You are still a dog.

    And Herb Cats, you are now blacklisted.
    Heh Heh Heh!

    Mom is now on to us.

    And, by the way, today is the birthday of the most beautiful equine in the world: Psy Ann! Mom got her a chocolate glazed donut. Shhh it’s a surprise.

  23. Tupper and Gilly
    6:33 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Howlers – jeez, dawgs, why did you have to spill the beans on us? Now Mama says that we are only gazing adoringly at whatever it is she is eating.
    But since you are blacklisting those Wrotten Kats, we will forgive you.

    And once PsyAnn has her donut – please tell her Happy Birthday from us!

    Here’s a link to the history of the high heel. More info than you ever wanted to know but it is interesting.

  25. Wose-the small and meek

    Ahem! Yesterday, a long,bone-shaped package arrived at my door.
    A bone? I have no dog. But since I have constant pain in my lower teeth, I thought, “a bone might be a good thing” since chewing relieves the pain.

    Curious, I took the package in. I noticed that while there was a return address, there was no name. I carefully opened the package, and to my delight found a decorative flag of two of my favorite cartoon characters, Snoopy and Woodstock!

    I want to thank the unknown sender(s)for this thoughtful and kind gesture.

    While I have suspicions of who the sender(s) might be, I am still looking for clues….

  26. Tupper and Gilly
    6:53 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Bee – we read that article – lots of info, but still interesting. Especially the part about the butchers’ high heels. ewwww

    Rose – we were the recipients of an incredible package of goodies too. Absolutely made our day around here. Glad you got such a wonderful present. But clues….well, mums the word.
    tee hee

    Maskers!….Just so you know we here are watching the very last Justified show while waiting for our burgers to be cooked just right…sob!sob!sob!…But, hey! Yea to the burgers!…snort!

    I’ve enjoyed hearing from our Natasha (who may have some dating advice for our ML).

    A dreary, cold morning has turned into an afternoon with intermittent sunshine. This is good because I’ve been such a slug and my house is at “critical mass” and needs tending to. Sunshine helps my mood and energy.

    Garfield, the 22 pound cat has a new owner who will pick him up tomorrow. Mr. Big has a adoption visit here at the Hobbit Hotel sometime this weekend (they wanted Garfield but will consider Mr. Big.). I am taking Blossom and the blind Mr. Magoo to the adoption clinic Sat and Sun. I love each of them but want them to find good, forever homes.

    Monday night we are trapping 5 feral cats in Willow (on the same road as our favorite musher), and getting them spayed on Tuesday and returning them Tuesday night. The guy lives in a small trailer with no running water with 18 indoor cats and 11 outdoor cats. Cat rescue groups for over a year have been helping getting them all fixed and helping with food and litter. I have mixed emotions about this. No one should be feeding 29 cats. No one should have 18 indoor cats especially since he is their “owner” and not finding homes for them. He lives at poverty level himself (a couple of people in my rescue group have taken him human food). Supposedly he loves these cats but it seems like a hoarder situation.

  30. Herd of Hounds
    7:48 pm on April 17th, 2015

    CHobbit, you have a point! The emotion is there but it seems the common sense is somewhat lacking.

    Too cold here today. Lake Dreary (Erie) usually has the ice gone April 1st when the ice boom is removed so the ice can go down the Niagara River and over Niagara Falls. Well, I looked at my February calendar with Loulou and Sammie and see it’s April 17 and the ice is still here. The weather forecast said 64 degrees except near the lake it’s 47! I’m near the lake! I had to wear a ski hat to take a walk.

  32. Tupper and Gilly
    7:58 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Hobbit – thank you from all the furry ones here, for all you do for these homeless little ones.
    It does sound like the man is a hoarder, but the local shelter probably figures it is easier to enable than fix. Too many issues going on.

    MPM – ummm, we may wait til later in the summer to come visit you. It DOES get to be summer there at some point, doesn’t it?

  33. Oley Howlers

    It was a lovely, leisurely birthday ride, followed by a nice birthday party. Annie loved her donut and we loved our treats.

  34. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    8:05 pm on April 17th, 2015

    We have groups here that trap feral cats, neuter them and release. It seems to be a better solution, because if you simply remove them, new unfixed cats come into the space and then multiply. I think it is called a TNR program.

    I never knew there was so much social/sexual/historical information about high heels. Wow, who knew! Makes sense that men would think this a way to confine and control women. Better then the bound feet of the Chinese women before the early 1900s.

  35. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    8:06 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Happy Birthday PsyAnn!

    Vacation for my mom! A weekend, a school week, another weekend! She is all mine! Now, if the rest of the snow would melt, all will be perfect.

  37. B.Stover
    8:08 pm on April 17th, 2015

    T&G: I found the info about the butcher’s high heels interesting also. And the people in the Middle Ages wearing high heels to avoid street “debris.”

  38. B.Stover
    8:12 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Barb: The “control” aspect is interesting. I think I already knew that. Heels and mini-skirts…. Sigh.

  39. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    8:18 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Yes, the butcher aspect was something else we didn’t know, and it brought about a very graphic image. And what about the French king that actually had rules that no one could wear heels higher than his? Come on!

    8:25 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Flats!…Yeeep!…Everyone around here wears flat sensible s-hoes. My friend is still wearing Grandma’s sho-es….snorkel!….It is amazing what a little sh-oe polish can do….heh!heh!…Even Beau and I have flat paws…sniff!

    After Nick and Nora enjoy a Manhattan (shaken to fox-trot time), we will be investigating the mysterious Snoopy and Woodstock flag case.

    Jazzie!…We played kissey face thru the fence with ole Jazzie…snorkel!…She is Floyd the Wood Carver’s gal…heh!…She is as stiff as she is fat, but always wants a few pug kisses…chuffle!

  43. Rio - The Evil Pug
    8:28 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Cards!…And a lovely post-card was received today….snort!…This birthday just keeps reaping rewards!…guffle!

    RIO! Your team is in first place in their division. Unfortunately, I can not say that for my team. The Rays have just taken the lead away from the Yankees. sob, sob, sob

  45. Wose-the small and meek

    Another home run for the Rays. Time for meds and bed.

    King Louis XIV was Absolute Ruler. I always enjoy that portrait of him.

  47. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi

    Rio – thank you for not giving Natasha puggy kisses through fence. Vould smear lipstick.

    B&M&L The only things missing at “Miss Julia Throws a Wedding” are 3 rings and a calliope! Funny, funny, funny and mom is chuckling.

  49. B.Stover

    Louis XIV had the “hunting lodge” of Versailles expanded into the palace it is today. (It’s beautiful.) He made the aristocracy live there and that is how he controlled them. Interesting history.

    If anyone is interested:

    Rio: Since when did you start wearing lipstick? There’s no judgement. We’re just curious. Heh.

    9:08 pm on April 17th, 2015

    HRH B, thank you for the High Heel info today. Reinforces some costuming class info from theatre classes. Interesting.

  57. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:44 pm on April 17th, 2015

    HOH, I think this third book in the series is the one we like best so far.

    Nighty night.

  58. B.Stover
    9:49 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Rio: I’ll try to catch up on Allegiance this weekend.

  59. Rio - The Evil Pug
    9:53 pm on April 17th, 2015

  60. B.Stover
    9:56 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Rio: I think I saw the first two or three episodes. I’ll check it out.

    Night all.

    9:57 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Bee – we must include Versailles on our tour of Europe and Asia.
    Mama will eschew spike heels for the journey, and will try HOH’s suggestion of Cuban heels. ( we had to look that one up)

    Bedtime now, show time in the am.
    G’ night, family.

    9:57 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Rio – we loved Justified and were so pleased they ended it the way they did. As you said, class acts all around. We’ll miss it. Somehow Mr. Selfridge isn’t quite as…exciting?

    Enjoy your weekend, Everybody.

  63. Rio - The Evil Pug
    10:00 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Blu-Kat!….snort!….Nothing can compare to Justified in the true Kentucky-Hills-Hillbilly-Marshal sort of way….heh!heh!…Lordy, I am going to miss all those hillbillies so very much….sniff!

  64. Herd of Hounds
    10:40 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Nighty night, all.

  65. dawson
    10:45 pm on April 17th, 2015

    I agree the ending to Justified was wonderful, and completely unexpected. I expected lots of blood.

    A Catty Librarian is in town and we 3 sisters are working hard packing. My
    surveyor son will be coming into town shortly. A U haul will be brought in tomorrow and loaded up. Then it will be over for the Western contingent. We will head to Bellingham via Missoula, Montana. Staff and Mr Fireslippers will stay a couple more days.

    I most likely won’t be posting for a few days while we drive cross country.

  66. Rio - The Evil Pug
    10:57 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Endings!…Season ending for Better Call Saul…snuff!…Now, those of youse who watch this show can you please tell me why Jimmy choose to take the road less traveled?…yeeep!..I was waiting for a monumental event to push him to the dark-side and I did not see it…gasp!…What am I missing? What didn’t I see?…yeeep!…No jimmy, No! Bad lawyer….sniff!

    11:20 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Gift!…I received the most amazing gift – the full 6 seasons of Breaking Bad on DVD…YEEEEEP!…Amazed and so thankful. I mean, this represents some of the best writing in Television ever. EVER! Seriously…snort!…I love that in NO WAY do they glorify the drug dealings of low-lifes… but they show the nitty-grit of what that life is if one is so damned stupid to go anywhere near that life-style…yeeep!

  69. Rio - The Evil Pug
    11:38 pm on April 17th, 2015

    Rocks!…The Rockies are playing the Dodgers tonight. Usually this is an exciting day, but both teams are wearing the same colored outfits – at least to me…gah!…It is making it very hard for me to tell one player from another so I am headed up to my cool soft bed where all my toys and Beau’s toys are in just the right places…heh!
