The Fantasticks

Last week, we took Sarah and her friend, Taylor, to a local production of the musical, The Fantasticks.  Happily, it was only about five minutes from our house and better yet, it was free!  (I just love free!)

The girls decided to put on some make up for the occasion; since Sarah really doesn’t like make up, that was quite a big occasion for her.

But don’t they look mah-ve-lous, dahling?

The musical was held in a small auditorium surrounded by a whole lot of loveliness. (J just love small auditoriums.  And loveliness.)


Everywhere we looked, there was something eye catching to gaze at.  (I just love gazing at eye-catching stuff.)

For the musical, we got to sit in the very front row.  (I love sitting in the front row. Of small auditoriums. Surrounded by loveliness.)


The musical was performed by students from East Carolina University.  It was well done and funny and featured a whole lot of great writing.  (You guessed it.  I love great writing.)  From what I understand,  the show's original off-Broadway production ran a total of 42 years and 17,162 performances, making it the world's longest-running musical.


And so that was our big outing for the week, an event blessed with lovely ladies and lovely surroundings!   (I just love loveliness!)


A Few of Your Comments to Comment On:

Anon said: Your website keeps coming up on my anti-virus scan as a "dangerous" website. I refuse to click the "fix it" button, because I don't want to stop visiting your site. Do you know why this is happening? I am mostly a lurker, but I really enjoy your writing and reading about your wonderful family.

A.  Anonymous, I’ve had a couple other people e-mail me with the same problem.  So, since it’s happened more than once, I e-mailed my friend Wyatt, The Computer Guru, to see if he had any input. This is what he said:

“Many times this problem can be caused by the visitor's browser security or privacy settings being set too high, which filters out any tiny possibility of an attack.

To the ones who have brought this to your attention: They can simply put your site in their 'allowed' list in their anti-virus program and those bogus alerts will stop.”


Sue G.  prefaced a comment by saying, “I'm a bit behind in my reading, so I don't know if you will even see this late comment to your entry.”

I just wanted to let her (and the rest of you) know that I get an email reminder anytime a comment is left on the site, whether it’s from a recent post or a post from six months ago.  So you can comment away on old or new posts and always know that I will see the comment.

Speaking of which, THANKS to those of you who are so faithful to comment.  You really make my day!

Glad to see you're feeling better, and enjoying the "loveliness" of summer! :)

"Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift.
That's why it's called the present."

May you and your family continue to be blessed with MANY "presents"!

I've been reading your website for a long time....around the time of Sarah's relapse. I have never commented (shame on me), but read regularly. You have become a part of my family and I have prayed for you and your family many times. I don't know why it's taken so long to comment, but I guess it's better late than never!! Anyway, just wanted to let you know that you and Sarah are an inspiration. Glad you are feeling better.

Love and prayers,
Kelly in Auburn, AL

I am just blown away at the beauty of Manteo - I so want to live there or someplace very similar. However, I am going to try and notice some of the small beautiful wonders in my town - and maybe the big city!! Glad you are feeling better. Enjoy your weekend

P.S. Sarah and her friend are gorgeous! I am so glad Sarah found a good friend at school. I have been meaning to ask - what classes did Sarah choose for her Freshman year?

How fun! I love small auditoriums as well. We've seen some of the best shows at our local theater. If it were free that would be even better! said...
