2014, like any other year in life, started off both good and bad but I think the good far outweighs the bad!!! From dinner at the Dubliner Pub to seeing “The Wizard of Oz”, seeing that old Ford in front of my doctor’s office to going out for lunch today, plus the usual Thursday shopping at the Dollar Tree and Winn-Dixie. Also today was Pantry Day and that place always amazes me. We got fried turkey rolls, baked ham, Dal with chaunk---I have no idea what that is but I’ll let you know!--in addition to banana nut muffins among canned goods. The best part of the Pantry are the lovely women who work there!
Going to see “August: Osage County” tomorrow and next week in the first of 3 winter concerts with Seth Rudetsky on Thursday. this one starring Megan Mullaly who played Karen on “Will & Grace” and starred in 3 Broadway shows. I have never heard her sing and am looking forward to their interplay.
Along with all the good there is that bad. On Monday I go for pre-op work at my primary doctor as Wednesday I have an appointment at 8 AM (UGH! That means I have to get up at 6 AM!) for an out patient procedure. I don’t quite understand what is going to happen but he will go through my groin to scrape plaque off my veins to ease my walking. That will take about 30 minutes but I will have to stay in the office for 3-4 hours for him to check on healing. My main concern--okay so I am crazy!--was whether I could go to the theatre the next night and he said no problem. And yes, I would have canceled the procedure to the following week!
February we will be seeing the touring companies of the Broadway shows “Memphis” and “Once” . We saw the former last year in Miami and enjoyed it. I have seen the movie “Once” which got rave reviews but I was not a fan. The Broadway version won 8 Tony Awards, including ‘Best Musical’ and a Grammy for ‘Best Musical Theatre Album so I look forward to seeing this version! Oh heck I just love going to the theatre!
All in all the year is starting off good--I am not asking for much except, even with the medical problems I had last year, I just want 2014 to be as good as 2013.
It is a wonderful life folks!
