What luck that I found out that a group was putting it on a couple of weeks after I finished reading "Anne of Green Gables"!!! My sister hadn't read it, but at the beginning of the play they did a recap of sorts. It was enough for her to get the background, anyway. They did a good job: the girl who played Anne had most of the lines: I'm amazed at the job she did. Of course, I don't know if she had cue cards in the back. If she did, she did a really good job of disguising it! One of the little boys was a little hard to hear, but he didn't have many lines, so it didn't affect the rest of the play.
We had a good laugh on the way back to the Small Town: When we had to get back onto the interstate, with both of us being "directionally-challenged", we didn't know which way to get back on! On the way to the play, when we got off of the interstate, I misunderstood her directions, so I took a wrong turn and had to turn around. (She was reading the directions.), thus our confusion as to how to get back on the interstate. Funny thing about how I figure out whether to go east or west when getting on the road: I have to picture the state of Tn. to decide which way I need to go. If you don't know anything/much about Tn.: there are 3 very distinct parts: West, Middle, and
And, we realized we had something in common. This sister's young adult life was very different than mine. Well, hers just took a different route than mine did. She's a biiiig numbers' person...numbers don't mean a thing to me, and it absolutely floored her when I told her that. She's always been so responsible whereas I feel like I was pretty immature as a young adult.
When she walked into my front door, she took a look at Ally (my schnauzer) and said that she didn't know "that one". She was really surprised when I told her it was Ally. See why?
Yeah, she's got the "miniature sheepdog" look going on right now. A visit to the "Beauty Parlor" is on the calendar for this week!
