July 1, 2008.... a sad day for me...

As I write this latest blog topic... I'm actually rather sad for quite a few reasons today.... I won't go into everything that has me down today, but I'll give you 2 things that are keeping me down at this time.  For anyone who knows me... they know it takes a lot to get me down.. so here they are....

 

1--As I've mentioned in my previous blog topic, I've been lucky enuff to have had a small role in Central Wisconsin Children's Theater production of  Disney's "A High School Musical", which has been at the Grand Theater the last few days.  I can NOT say enough about the job the cast and crew has done over the last several months.  I've only been with them the past few weeks and I'm already sad that I won't be around these talented people in the same capacity probably after tonight. 

To the crew: THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for inviting me into your production.   You've done a great job and I hope my phone will ring again in the future to help out. 

To the cast:  I'm sorry I haven't had much of a chance to get to know you all better in the past few weeks... you are all wonderful individuals and I know that this will NOT be the last production for y'all as you continue in your lives and careers and wherever that may take you.  Y'all have been awesometastic to me over the past weeks and I can NOT say it enuff... how much I appreciate you !   I will miss you guys.... keep in touch and let me know how Port Washington goes!  If there's anything I can ever do for y'all... just lemme know-- including pushing your wheel chair "Jack Scott", calling you Michael Bolton and not Troy, or changing my sunglasses every performance just to keep things interesting.... I will miss ya!

 

2--Another thing keeping me down today,,, it is Alison Struve's last day at the station today.  I am losing this fantabulous young woman to her hometown of Green Bay (tv station) .... I really don't know where to begin with this lovely and talented person... she has been my rock through the trying days, she has been my right hand "man" so to speak, she has been the sister I never had, she has been my lunch partner when I needed the company, she has been my towel holder (Polar Plunge in February), she has an unique affinity with manatees, she has a "kind of" crazy cat, she has been someone that can get me to smile even on the bad days ... and she has a great and bright future ahead of her.  I know I will miss her dearly.. but I am happy that she is returning home to work and continue to grow in her career.
