The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas

This 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.

Review by David Wilcox.

Review by Len Fonte.

Review by Syracuse NewTimes.

Review by BWW.

After the play we went to Parker's for dinner. 

Borrowed the movie staring Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton from Seymour Library. Joan and I watched it one night about one week after the play.

Other shows of this season:

Guys and Dolls
The Best Little Whore House in Texas
Ghost: The Musical
Always Patsy Cline

Week Thirty-Three - 19 To Go

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.

Week Thirty-Two - 20 To Go

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.

Weedsport Erie Canal Mural

This 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.
