Rumors and Mr. and Mrs. Fitch

Busy weekend!  Friday night at the Melbourne Civic Theater we saw Rumors
which was absolutely wonderful! Great acting, a marvelous set...this comedic farce had it all!

Last night it was Mr. and Mrs. Fitch at Titusville Playhouse 2.  We enjoyed it.
Our regional theater here on the Space Coast is good and getting better every year it seems. Love it here!

Hitting the road with the RV for a bit...

We'll be heading out today with our Space Coast Sams group to Lazy Days CG near Tampa. From there some of us are going directly to Hillsborough River State Park.  Being in a Good Sam Chapter is a good way to get out at least monthly with your friends and keep the cobwebs off the RV :)

Going to the Tico Warbird Airshow today....


This is my "rant" in a letter to the Editor of Florida Today:
We have been going to the TiCo Warbird Airshow in Titusville for many years.  Yesterdays show was, as usual, excellent and you can tell a lot of people put in a lot of volunteer time and effort for this event to be so seamlessly wonderful.  But, there is always room for improvement, and there was one thing that did not sit well with me, or the people I attended the show with......the Thunderbirds production.  Don't misread me here please...the flying and precision, as always, was awesome and inspiring. The Air Force does send their best pilots, no doubt. That being said though, the pre-show hoopla was too long, too self-congratulatory and the real kicker was the 'music' that was not only too loud but extremely irritating.  We were prisoners being forced to listen to TERRIBLE sounds for at least 20 minutes before the first Thunderbird left the ground.  If they had timed it right, and had the demonstration start right after the enlistment ceremonies, and  had chosen either patriotic music or anything else that was NOT an irritant, we would have left the show with a smile on a face instead of the comment: "WHAT were they thinking, and WHO do they think is their audience?".  Because of this, I will probably NOT attend another air show where the Thunderbirds perform...it was that off-putting.  Sorry for my negativity on this, but it really was a bummer.
