Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!
I’d tell you that I got to see It’s a Wonderful Life at the Music Box Theater. I’ve loved seeing their Christmas show and White Christmas three times. When my friend who lives in France came home and invited me and some friends to see It’s a Wonderful Life there. I wasn’t sure it would be as fun, but it really was. The carols with the organist were jolly and one couple came dressed up with the lady in a bathrobe with BFHS* on the back and the man in an old time football uniform. Whenever Mr. Potter rolled in the audience hissed. Whenever there was a little romance the audience reacted with wit.
I’m lucky I got to the theater as the night before on the way home from working, I got a flat tire. Ugh! I was able to park in a retirement home parking lot. I had an hour to get to a party so I didn’t have time to wait for roadside service. Thus I had to deal with the car in the morning and the film started at noon so I didn’t have much time for delays. Luckily, the service came as scheduled and all was well, though I was leery of driving into the city on a spare.
Last Tuesday I did some Census recruiting at a local Toastmaster’s Club. This club’s been around since the 1920s! Many did apply, but one bonus was that I got to see how this public speaking club worked. I was impressed by the sense of community and support. In fact, I may very well join in the spring.
