You may have noticed a bit of an absence on my part with not explanation. I had a severe attack of colitis a week ago and spent 6 days in the hospital. This is day 11since it hit, and the first day I have felt almost like a human being. The worst part is that I missed most of the performances of my show, “Bonnie & Clyde In Winsboro.” I was there for opening night October 17 and in the hospital the next day.
Yesterday, I had someone take me to the theatre to see the last performance and stay a little while at the cast party. What a terrific group of players who carried on just fine without me, although they were very happy to see me. They gave me this great shirt that they all signed, and we all cried. You can see lots more pictures of the cast at the Winnsboro Center for the Arts Facebook page. The young people who played Bonnie and Clyde were amazing.
Cassie Rose played Bonnie and Thomas Hulme played Clyde. In the background is Ian Dierflinger as Hank the mechanic. These young folks are all graduates, or near graduates, of my summer drama camp. They make me proud.
Since I am supposed to rest for a couple more weeks, my computer time will be relegated to working on my book, so I may only post an occasional piece here from my friend, Slim, and take some time off.
I’ll leave you with a few jokes to get your week off to a fun start.
These relationship questions were posed to children, and I love their answers.

Two boys were walking home from Sunday school after hearing a strong preaching on the devil.
One said to the other, ‘What do you think about all this Satan stuff?’
The other boy replied, ‘Well, you know how Santa Claus turned out. It’s probably just your Dad.’
Before I forget, I have a review copy of an anthology that will release on November 15th. I am pleased to have a story in this International Anthology, and I would love to send a review copy out if you are interested in reading and writing a review on the 15th.
