Friday Five ~ Easily distracted

It’s been a busy few weeks, it has, and my head is spinning. I start to do something and then… oooh! is that a shiny thing?

Sentences are going unfinished, and….

I forget. What was I talking about?

Maybe, instead of trying to write something coherent, I’ll just share a few fun things with you. And we can be all serious and coherent again next week.


We few, we happy few

Last night, we saw Kenneth Branagh in the National Theatre rebroadcast of Macbeth. It was exciting and fun. But not as good as Sir Ken’s Henry V. How cool a coincidence is it, then, to wake up this morning and learn that today is St. Crispin’s day?

This speech chokes me up every time.

Girls just want to have fun

Tonight. She’s here. At our local opera house. Are we going? You bet your bippy we are!

Mystery man

Sunday night, as if enough isn’t going on, we’re going to see Hugh Laurie. Because how can you not love this man? He’s going to playing songs from his new album (blues, piano), but maybe, if we ask nicely, he’ll play our favorite….

We will never ever move from Vermont

How can you not love a state that has designated, by law, a state pie? (Many thanks to Tammy at Wing and a Prayer Farm for pointing this out to me today.)

Broyhill or the box of badgers?

I’m delighted to know I wasn’t the only one who preferred the “booby” prizes on Let’s Make a Deal.


Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Rebecca-What an amazing place you live.

    1. Rebecca says:

      So you do you, Ann! Great to see you and Mel last weekend. We miss you and everyone!

      1. AnnL Cohen says:

        Mel and I really enjoyed seeing you Michael and Hyla. Hyla is growing up so fast. We are on our way home with Mum. Tomorrow it is Springfield to see the Lincoln hm and library. Today we went to the Ford library. If you want to come west one day we would love to host you. Talk to you later

  2. Tammy says:

    How much fun was THAT!!!!! Sometimes we are too productive to wax poetically in our writing, however, you’ve managed some of each! Love it!

    1. Rebecca says:

      🙂 Thanks so much, Tammy!

    Texas just got an official state pie this year. But I much prefer yours. =) (Ours is pecan; apple is my favorite.)
