Please, Sir, I Want Some More . . .

My 13-year-old participated in Oliver! as a member of the choir of orphans and ragamuffins. I'd forgotten how many great songs come from that musical, including "Consider Yourself" and "Food, Glorious Food" (or as I was brainwashed by TV commercials to mutter under my breath: "Cheese, Glorious Cheese!")

My street urchin is the one in the middle wearing ye olde spectacles.

I love the music in Oliver. Now I will be humming it the rest of the day!

We did Oliver my junior year of high school. I played several roles, one of which was the wife of the mortician. I had to fall into a coffin, legs flailing. One time, my legs did not flail and the director started yelling at me. Until she realized I was unconscious from hitting my head on the side of the coffin. She never lived that one down.

My 12 year old daughter is playing Grandma Josephine in her school's production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory this weekend. I'm looking forward to watching her perform! Isn't it great to see our kids in stuff like this?

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! It's nice to meet you! :)
