On Friday night, I had the pleasure of taking my two buds, Linda and Cathy, to see "Little Women" at our historic Temple Theater in Sanford, NC. Built in 1925, The Temple is a true gem in this little community and is working overtime to stay afloat in these uncertain economic times. I encourage you, if you're ever in the area, to treat yourselves to a show here. You won't be disappointed.
I can't imagine that there's someone out there who is not familiar with Little Women. But, in case not, this is classic, quality theater for the entire family. Little Women was inspired by Louisa May Alcott's classic 1869 novel and her own experiences. This particular performance brings to life family, friendship and romance.
On my way out, I snapped a quick shot of my "neighbor boys". I've watched these guys grow up. I remember Samuel, the one in the red shirt, coming up my field/yard with his pull ups on and a walkie-talkie stuffed down each side. He was helping his dad help me replace the pump in my well. Isn't that the best memory? It was a toddler's version of High Noon! I love these boys. They have a very special place in my heart. Benjamin is Samuel's older brother. That's him in the camo tee. I don't know the little guy peeking around Samuel's shoulder. But he can be my friend, too!
This past weekend was one of those in which you sigh a heavy, contented sigh. I'm sure you know what I mean. My path was crossed with friends and loved ones and confirmation of faith. And I think my preacher developed his sermon JUST FOR ME... a good weekend indeed.
