You're A Star, Jazzy Girl!

June 2, 2017

Good morning.  Goodness, I did not want to wake up this morning.  I finally fell into a nice deep sleep and I wanted to stay there for a while.  Alas, my little doggie likes to have his breakfast in the morning.  Actually, he'll take it any time I'll get it for him.  But if I don't get up to make his breakfast, I feel so guilty all day, like a really bad mama. 

I cooked my little guy some hamburger for his supper last evening, and I made a little extra for his breakfast this morning.  A nice way to start his day.  When Pogo is happy, I'm happy.

Folks, I had a new quick page to post for you today, but for some reason, I'm having problems uploading to MediaFire.  I'll keep trying, and hopefully, I'll be able to post it by Sunday. 

Today I want to share some really great news.  The Brockton High School Drama Club has so much to be proud of.   They have received twelve MET nominations for their production of Sister Act. 

Our Jazzy was nominated for Best Featured Actress.  Woo Hoo!  Let me explain a bit.  The MET Musical Awards is an educational program sponsored by Broadway in Boston, and run by the METG (Massachusetts Educational Theater Guild, Inc) as a way of recognizing outstanding performances  and production values as displayed by Massachusetts high schools and middle schools during the course of the theater season.
There are nineteen categories, and Brockton High School got fifteen nominations, including:
Best Set Design and Execution, Best Lighting Design and Execution, Best Costume Design and Execution, Best Stage Management, Best Dance Ensemble, Best Chorale Ensemble, Best Acting Ensemble, Best Overall Production, Best Featured Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Lead Actress,  and Best Specialty Ensemble.
Individual Performance scores do not count towards a production's overall score.  Individual actors are scored at the adjudicator's discretion based on what they feel are outstanding performances worthy of individual recognition.  Adjudicators are not required to recognize any individual performances within a production if they feel none merit award consideration. 
The final awards will be announced on June 24th at 7 p.m.  Good luck everybody!
Are we all a bit puffed up and proud?  Woo Hoo!  Of course we are!  Jazzy, I am so proud of you.  I hope all your dreams of Broadway come true.  I'm looking forward to seeing your name up in lights at one of Broadway's (and Boston's) finest theaters. 
Now I'm off to find some fun mischief for Pogo and me to get into.  We were hoping to go out shopping today.  Hmmm, that's certainly a possibility.  So, till Sunday, Y'all have an awesome weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.

I am thrilled for her to have been recognized in her achievement, what a great Honor! I do so hope that all of her dreams of Broadway will come true and that her name will be up in lights and that I may someday be able to say, "You see that girl? That is my friend Edna's beautiful granddaughter" and I do know that your all very proud of Jazzy.
Not to mention receiving that many awards. It is just awesome how kids are being recognized for their hard work and dedication. It makes it all worthwhile in the end.

It is hot and sticky and I have been inside most of the day. It was just too hot and too muggy to go out today for very long. I did go out to the trash and get the bags set out and I was also able to get about 5 more rows done on Karyn's afghan. I am stopping for the night tho. I am getting rather tired and think that I will take a shower an go to bed early. No reading tonight. My eyes need a break so I am thinking of putting on my head phones and listening to some music to help me rest.

Give Pogo lots of cuddles and kisses from us. Cisco sends Pogo lots of sniffs and a bark or two in doggie greetings and I am sending you a great big bear hug and wish I could see you. I miss you a lot.
Good Night my friend and have a wonderful evening. Love Beth and Cisco
