Martha: Missed Career as a Radio Actress

June 4, 2012

A couple of weeks back, our local OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learner Institute) held the annual end of the year “Picnic” and General Meeting. A lovely Picnic, held indoors with AC and no ants or other wildlife. The menu included bar-b-que, potato salad and desserts. But, the entertainment was the highlight for me: The participants in the “Curtains Up!” class, which studied and did readings from several plays during the spring term, shared scenes from those plays with the group. Who knew that my very on mother, Martha, had such talent? She took on a role played by Meryl Streep in “Doubt” for starters. She read the part of the wife in a Neil Simon play with impeccable comedic timing. As I said, “Who knew?”

I only wish I had been making a video/audio recording instead of just still shots.

I wonder what she's thinking... Not many good shots from this year's dance recital. The lighting is difficult, to say the least. But, I do like this one.
