Well good people, here am I, sitting backstage of the Crown Theater with Jose (Don Juan), Duncan (Duncan), and Jim Hancock (Burley Minstrel) as we record a "new" young talent on Jim's portable recording studio. His name is Mac McGregor and he plays a lovely Flamenco Guitar - reminiscent of our old friend Malcom (of Cantiga). As "Blind Dog Entertainment" we are recording a demo for him. He is a good talent and a nice man - we're hoping he can find work in (or out of) our community.
Last weekend, Mother's Day, is a blur to me. I know it was fun. I know we all laughed..and that is good. On Saturday there was a benefit for R.E.S.C.U. (an organization which aids finacially troubled Rennies with medical issues) whereby MPIII (an improv group here at Scarborough), Coy (our General Manager) and Orvis (Marketing) performed improv on stage and sold water balloons to the audience (us Rennies) and we got to bombard them all! Wet and wacky!! They raised over a thousand dollars! (Good going guys!)
This past week was spent writing for the next movie/filming project. Duncan and I and the Nuns hung out and have been coming up with some pretty silly stuff - can't wait to see it come to fruition this summer! Also this was he Weenie Roast - last social fling week! SO MUCH TO DO SO LITTLE TIME! The Weenie Roast was great fun - we had special performances by Weenie Man, The Pickler, The Potato Person (double-baked) and Galactic Gal! Really wonderful performances, each one of us was truly amused.
Two weekends left...can't believe how fast the time is flying...soon off to upstate New York and cooler (colder) weather and the beginning of Spring (again). This weekend is Pirate's Weekend here at Scarborough - we're going to have The Corsairs sharing the stage with us and The London Broil this weekend. I miss the Corsairs out here and am glad that they'll be here for at least one weekend. It's gonna be wild, though, trying to fit us all on this stage. Stop by and witness the madness!
Also I wish to take a moment to congratulate all those kids who are now young adults who are graduating from High School this year (Ali, and of course my little red-haired girl). Be joyful in your graduating. This is a true accomplishment in life. And, as you all experience your lives, may you be shown beauty and grace in all of your days. May your dreams come true (but not too fast) and may you always find friendship and love in your lives.
