Bloggers Invade Sight and Sound Theatre

Oh boy, we really did invade.
With white gift bags for the 
water, sugared almonds and 
an 8 oz candle for each person
in our party.  
The concession employees thought
it was great.  
They were all smiles as Warren
and I piled the bags on their counter
and filled them on the spot.
No, really, they were

We thought the show was wonderful.
I noticed that it was not the lead actor
playing Joseph and was very impressed 
by his understudy.  When the show was
over we found out that this was neither 
the lead nor the understudy, but a third
in line.  Wow!!!  He did an awesome job!
Now, that is depth of talent.  

Attending were:

Mrs. Rabe of Creekside Cottage was able to make it 
at the last moment!  She is having a very busy week
but things worked out for her.

Lindsay of Girl in Nature who is studying the art of 
training horses with the Parelli method, which is what
Sight and Sound uses.  She enjoyed seeing the many 
horses in the show.

Maurie of Gracious Interiors.  This was our first time
to meet.  Maurie is new to blogging.  I do hope you'll
stop by her beautiful blog and say hello.  It was a pleasure
meeting this wonderful and warm lady. 
I look forward
to getting to know her better.

Grandma Georgia who reads my blog very faithfully.
Poor dear, Warren set it as her home 
every time she starts up her computer...there it is!!

Grandma Phyllis who reads Creekside Cottage, 
Girl in Nature
and Hospitality Lane.  
She's Mom and Grandma to 
the Creekside Cottage Folks 
and has become a very dear friend 
of mine over the past three years.  
She is a very worthy opponent 
in the bowling alley as is her husband, 
whom I used to bowl with every week until 
my neck went kersplat!

Ellen, my friend and neighbor
was able to go with us, as well.
She has been such a 
huge encouragement for me and blogging.
A very faithful reader and 
always one to tell me that it is of 
benefit to her. 
I think that readers who 
know you in person are the scariest.  
They keep you honest.  

So, that was the group! 
Warren and I were so happy to host!!
I wish we could have taken 
every one who reads here.
The show is phenomenal 
both in artistry and in message.
When it was over 
Mrs. Rabe exclaimed that this was her 
favorite of any 
Sight and Sound Production she has seen.
Of course, you already know 
that I agree one hundred percent!!

We posed for a photo before Maurie had to leave us.
  Warren snapped the photos for us and so
wasn't in them.  
It was nice having him along.

We headed to Applebee's for dinner. 
There were paparazzi on the way!

  But we caught them at their own game....

It was good to have Mom join us.  
She had been working the show
and was done for the day. 
Technically she counts because
she is a reader, as well.  
But we would have let her come
anyway.  We're just nice like that.

It took a few minutes for her to find us 

so we had some time
to peruse the menus.  

Mom would have found us sooner but 
she was walking around the wrong restaurant with their 
manager looking for us.  
Poor lady.  
We all howled with laughter at her mistake.  
She laughed, as well.  
We offered to just pack up and head 
over there since she had been 
very excited about their salad bar.... but only in jest,
as we had all put in our order.  
Good thing my Mom has an 
awesome sense of humor. 
I love her, so much!!!!

We crammed eight of us into a space designed for six.
Cozy...would be one word for it.
Poor Ellen was crammed in the corner of our booth.

Maybe that explains the silly look on her face.
Or maybe she is just a whole lot of fun!!!
She wasn't sure she was going to be able to stand on 
her feet when she got out after being so squished.  
But she managed. 

I would just like to mention two other ladies who were 
definitely there in spirit....
Yvonne of Stone Gable ended up having to cancel due
to the need for emergency Oral Surgery.  
I felt so badly for her.
She was in so much pain.  
Hop on over to her amazing
blog and wish her well.  
You can tell her I sent you.
I was looking forward to meeting her.  
We've agreed to try to meet up 
once she is feeling better.

Kelly of Cozy Comforts wanted to come, as well, but 
things are progressing in the adoption of their little one 
and they had an important day with that yesterday.
We are so excited to see how things are working 
out for this adoption.  Their little guy is just so sweet!

If you get to Lancaster County while Joseph is playing
please try to get to see it.  You never know, I might even
get free to come and see it with you!  

With a grateful Heart!

Thanks for the invite; I loved meeting all of the people I had read about in your blog. The costumes and sets were amazing, and the storyline is life-changing.

Mrs.Rabe said...

It was amazing! I want to see it again and again and again....

Thanks for the opportunity! Dinner was a hoot - your mom made me laugh so hard!

And it was fun to meet Maurie - hopefully there will be an opportunity to meet Yvonne sometime, and I am already blessed to know Kelly!

Blessings and prayers,

Oh what fun it looks as if you all were having! I'm so glad that you had such a good turn-out for a last-minute opportunity. Some people really know how to grab them (last-minute opportunities)!

Kelly said...

I'm so sorry I missed it! But we didn't want to hold up the progress of our adoption, and Duane's work schedule is difficult right now, lots of overtime, which is good, but makes scheduling important appointments a bit tricky.
