evening Joan and I attended our third play of the 2017 season, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas at the Preston H. Thomas Theatre in The Merry-Go-Round Playhouse.The weather was most cooperative although it was wet when we left. Once in our seats we surveyed the crowd which was somewhat near capacity. The audience was enthusiastic.
In Paradise Valley, C. J. Box provides closure to previous a novel. Although the story line starts extremely slow, worth pursuing to the end. Good triumphs over evil but a C.J. Box reader already knew that. Look forward to future books featuring Cassie Dewell.
The central character is not Harry Bosch or Mickey Haller. Here Michael Connelly introduces his readers to a female protagonist, Renée Ballard. Although quirky Renée is one tough woman, however, she might be carrying a little too much baggage even for a law officer. A tricky surprise ending provided by an X-ray feature concludes this new chapter in the Connelly canon.
mural is on the outside wall of the Old Brutus Historical Society
Musem. This 11' x 26' mural was painted by Dawn Jordan of Weedsport,
NY. The mural depicts the Erie Canal of the early 1900s. The
location depicted in the mural is just down the road on Erie Drive
(Route 31), facing towards the traffic light. The Erie Canal would
have run behind the buildings where you now see Route 31. The bridge
connected Brutus Street where the traffic light is now located .
Several of the buildings can still be seen today. The steam powered tug
which is shown had to lower its smoke stack so it had the clearance
needed to get under the bridge. The Historial Society Museum is
located at 8943 North Seneca Street (Route 34) in Weedsport, NY.
