What a week this has been. Last week Gypsy was postponed to this week because of snow and snow threatened to cancel it for this week. I kept a close eye on the weather forecast and the timing for it all. After talking to Ron, here at Imperial Plaza, he assured me he would postpone if the weather would strike before we get there or while we were there. We were lucky, the snow hit while we were on our way back on Interstate 95, just a few miles north of Hanover. When we got back to Imperial Plaza, the snow was coming down. It looked beautiful.
Gypsy was a wonderful performance and the meal was simply great. It has been a while since I last went to a dinner theater. I have never been to Riverside Dinner Theater and it was great. I will return as soon as I can but I have so much going on, here at Imperial Plaza, that I don’t know when that will be. I’ll try to make it sooner than later, if possible.
I mentioned I was entering a book contest and I was to mail in the first part, well, I mailed it in. Keep your fingers crossed for me and wish me “Good Luck” in making it to become a finalist. In the meantime, I must write the rest of the book because if I become a finalist I will have a very short turnaround time to get the rest of the book to them. The first part was only 5,000 words and the rest must be at least 20,000 words or more therefore I will have to get a head start. That can’t be done overnight and edit too.
Today is Valentine’s Day and my wife and I went to the Valentine’s Day luncheon in the Richmond Room. There were quite a few people there and the place looked beautiful. I was impressed. The meal was great, as always and the music was good. Two women, that played the harp, were there. I remember going with Imperial Plaza, last December, to a performance where the Harp school performed with the entire classes of harps, including the smallest kids. It was great and I would like to see them again.
There was a lady at our table talking about how the residents go to an event an hour or more ahead of time and when the door open they will go in, get a table and then reserve all the seats for the friends who will come later. A lady, at our table, was doing that and the people never arrived. Personally, I don’t think that is fair but I am at a lost on how this should be stopped. Maybe someone, brighter than me, have an idea.
Well, I’m at the end and I hope you have enjoyed my rambling on (or is it venting) but until the next time, stay warm, stay safe and I’ll see ya.
