Sunday Best: The Vaudeville Show

This morning on National Public Radio, I heard about a news podcast where listeners are invited to call in and report the best thing that happened to them in a given week. My half-awake brain thought this would be a great feature to try here. With all the bad things going on in this world, it’s time to focus on something good. Here’s the best thing that happened to me this past week.

Last Wednesday, I performed a couple of my humorous poems on the stage at the Wyo Theater here in Sheridan for a Vaudeville production. Each week during July and August, local singers, dancers, comedians, and other entertainers take to the stage for a show that’s fun for the whole family. My poems brought down the house. I was asked to read again this coming Wednesday. My singing group, Just Harmony, will also perform.

Now it’s your turn. What’s the best thing that happened to you this past week? Please share in the comments field. I hope something good happens to you this coming week.

  1. Abbie–Congratulations on your grand performance at the vaudeville production of the WYO Theatre! Which poems did you present? This coming Wednesday sounds like another good day is in store for you and the audience.

    A talk show host, John Williams, on Chicago’s WGN-AM radio does a segment of this type each Friday afternoon. Listening to the good news of others lifts my spirits. Although each week I am happy about how well my Leader Dog deals with all the construction in our area and with overhanging limbs, a new item which brightened my prior week was that I received the confirmation that print copies of my book THE CHRISTMAS CARRIAGE AND OTHER WRITINGS OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON will be sold at one of the gift shops of the Clinton, Indiana’s Little Italy Festival, during the four days of Labor Day weekend.

    Thanks for another great idea for your blog–Alice Massa and Leader Dog Willow, Wisconsin

  2. I’m so glad my hot water tank quit heating the water in summer. When I had the new one installed, the old one took ages to empty. The valve had rusted shut but water was leaking from behind it. I spent a few hours emptying ice cream pails filled with water into larger ones and dumping the water outside. Had the tank quit working in the dead of winter, I would have had to haul water all the way to the bathroom and dump it into the tub or toilet. Leaving the door propped open would also have let in icy air which would have run up my heating bill. Thanks to God’s providence, I had enough money in the bank to pay for the replacement and I didn’t have to worry about sub-zero air pooling in my basement.
