I've A Feeling We're Not In Kansas anymore...

"I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore..."  I whispered as I waited for our ticket confirmation.

The Grand where The Jason Bishop Show was being performed was majestic.  Well, actually his show was in the Baby Grand right next door.  But first we had to go to the box office at the Grand to get the tickets that Jason had put back for us.

Someone once told me that this world would be a pretty boring place if everyone were the same.  What a profound statement.  This town proved to be very entertaining.  And I'm not just talking about the show...  LOL>

Pinocchio, the ballet was playing at the Grand.  Above> Arguments about which line to get into eventually provoked a hissy fit with the female of the couple as she stomped out of the box office and into the busy and strange streets of Wilmington. 

Above, far left you will see a ticket scalper.  "I don't understand why people look at me like I'm strange..." she said to me.  "I'm just trying to get rid of these tickets since my daughter can't come to the play..."  
Sure she can't come....  

People talking to themselves and even arguing with themselves.  Some pedestrians were having a real hard time walking straight and I could've swore the one guy was going to meander right into a light pole!  Whew.  Close call.
I didn't notice the attire of the fellow above  until he turned the corner.  He was in front of us and screaming at someone about
 stuffing a foot up their *^&*@*!
The parking was free, however a sign said that we should park at our own risk. 
Everything in the trunk!!

The Jason Bishop Show was great, though.  And he asked us to stick around after he signed autographs so we could talk and get hugs and pictures.

Dear Diary,

Suitcases. Vacation. More hugs than usual. I knew it could only mean one thing.  I'd be spending the night alone.  No wonder I got the dysentery.  My nerves are shot. 

But then, Lindsey and Rissie stopped by to 
take me outside and to feed me. They came by again... and again... 
I guess I'll be okay.  Gracie.


  1. Hi, it's early here in California and I didn't realize you were on a trip to a show. All I have to say is that I love Gracie's Diary and I want to see it published. So I can have it and read it both for me and to Samson. Love it!--Inger

  2. What a strange and rather spooky post!!! Is that levitation shot from the show or is it a poster? You seemed to run into the oddest things!! Anyway, you all look so happy and like you had lots of fun!! Sorry Gracie got sick!!!

  3. Sounds like a fun show! And Gracie is getting a lot of attention while you're away.

  4. Off hand, I would say that you had a great time! That's some poster!

    Poor Gracie, our babies learn the signs of their eminent isolation, quickly, don't they? :-)

  5. Exciting day for da peeps. Sorry you didn't get to go along, Gracie. But you got to have a nice quiet day of rest.

  6. Gracie was alright that is the main thing, right??
    I am glad you and your Hubby had a good time!!
    xx, Fern

  7. Well.......that sure sounded like a different thing to do. Glad you enjoyed in spite of the strangeness around you! lol

  8. Girl, you described that rather COLORFUL town so well, I felt like I was there with you! Glad y'all had fun...

    As a "Pet sitter" my heart just goes out to Gracie, But I do know that my sister and I shower the pets we take care of with love, walks, hugs, chew bones, doggie treats, and lots of toss - the - ball fun...

    Have a great week!

  9. Bobbi, sounds like an interesting trip all the way round! Big cities have 'a lot' to offer as far as 'different' go.
    Looked like a great show.

  10. Dear Gracie,,,,, Remember to watch movies,, while everyone is away,,, you can also have a house party,, and if you do,,,I will come over

  11. Sounds like a pretty cool experience!

  12. Well if you weren't in Kansas, were you even in the United States? Whew...I'd get out of there fast!
    No, glad you had such a great time but poor Gracie...she looks so forlorn !

  13. Dogs or cats - - they all seem to know what the suitcases mean. Hooray for other humans to feed our furry friends!

  14. Sounds like a fun show! Our Tigger gets upset when we leave on vacation. It breaks my heart!


Veterans Day - Remembering Dad

Pulling Dad's letters from an old tin,  I feel his loneliness as I read his letters home.  (FYI, Jo was my mom) Jan. 18, 1...
