I have been so out of touch with blogging lately, I must apologize. Busy with the season as we all are, I guess. Last Wednesday I took a realtors' bus trip to New York to see the play "Wicked." This is the story of the two witches up to when Dorothy landed in Oz. I had to get up about 4 a.m. to meet everyone for the bus. I have done these trips before and they are always a lot of fun. There are snacks and prizes going up and then coming home everyone is pooped and dozes off. The play was excellent, however I kept falling asleep. I would look at my friend in the next seat and her eyes were closed and then once she nudged me to tell me I was snoring. Right in the theater. How embarrassing! I think I will read the book, though, and catch up on what I missed in the show.

Saturday night was our office Christmas party. I realized that it has been ten years since I started with this company and I think I only missed one party. It is done very nicely - held at a country club with a buffet, open bar and a live band. It is nice to see everyone dressed up in a different environment. This is a family run real estate company and they were all there, three generations from the oldest to almost the youngest. Did you ever see a family who seems to have it all? Looks, money, good manners, niceness? There must be a flaw somewhere!

Your trip to NY sounds like a lot of fun, although if I had to get up at 4am, I'd be snoring in the theatre, too!

Wow, a trip to New York. That must have been wonderful. Getting up at 4am is no fun and I'm sure you were tuckered out.

The office party sounds like fun with 3 generations of family there. Some families do have it all, but as you said, there is probably a flaw somewhere.

I've enjoyed visiting with you, as always.

YOU got up at 4 am???

Sounds like a fun trip! I've heard that Wicked was a good play. I read the book and didn't care for it. And then a nice office party too.

Are Beth and family coming down for Christmas?

I love the musical Wicked! It's such fun. I hope you like the book. I did, but I know it is a bit more serious than many people imagine it will be at first.

I have been missing your Posts, but completely understand how stretched your time must be.

Enjoyed your cartoon.
