I was six-years-old when the legendary Patsy Cline, age 30 and at the height of her incredible career, perished in a plane crash. While I heard her name, her songs, because my parents loved her music and because I'd seen a movie about her life; I didn't fully realize how wonderful and acclaimed this woman was - and still is - until this past week. Anticipating this show, I read all about her on fan web sites and on Wikipedia. It was information well-worth reading. In lieu of Waukesha Civic Theatre's upcoming show, Patsy Cline Live! Today, Tomorrow and Forever, March 4-6, 2011, I hope you'll do the same. It'll make this show even sweeter.
When my husband and I established our "nest" in 1977, it was full from the start; one of those package deal things. "Buy" one, get two free. Along the way two more boys arrived. The oldest two came and went depending, but the youngest two were constants. Other than an occasional church camp week, high school event or sleepover, alone time was rare, quite sporadic and greatly coveted. So, when our youngest left home, we rejoiced - greatly! Think Hallelujah Chorus.
'Back in the day,' the twenty-five days between Thanksgiving and Christmas were full of anticipation. Nothing appeared in the stores or was strung across the streets until the day after the turkey was consumed. Nothing! It made the wait all the more exciting. The days were filled with school and shopping and planning. But what to do in the evenings and on long weekends till the 'big day' arrived?
