My Wacky Family

My wacky family: Stephen (brother), Mom, Nyssa, Dad. Posted by Picasa
"The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together." ~ Erma Louise Bombeck
Here is my wacky family, all dressed up and ready to go. They would like nothing more than the typical boring family portrait with "Mona Lisa" smiles, sober faces and every hair in place. Fortunately, they are just crazy enough to let loose and make wacko faces when asked. Well, at least all but Dad; this is as strange of a face as he can muster.

We were off to see "The Lion King". The show was good, not really "great" but very good. The stars of the show were the Timon and Pumbaa (warthog & meerkat) and the costumes. The music of Sir Elton is not the best in the world and the miking was poor tonight, hard to hear them. (The music of Beauty & the Beast is better.) The little boy who played young Simba was very, very cute but "bless his heart" he can't sing; dance he does well, but he was not even close with his main song. It was still fun, especially as it has been a very long time since we've been to a Broadway show. So, now it is off to work, Nyssa work, Mom therapy, more finalization of Medicare prescription plan for them, CME for me, etc.....'Nite.
