Finally I don't have to put the heat on in the morning to get the chill out! The temperature has been flirting with 80 degrees, hasn't made it yet but it looks like we might make it this week-end.


Pool days are few and far between. One day the sun was shinning, there were a few dark clouds hanging low but I really wanted to take a dip in the pool, so optimist that I am, decided to put my suit on and take my chances.

Well, once I got into the water, it started to pour. I quickly got out of the pool and found shelter. Eventually it stopped raining but it still looked threatening. I decided to make a quick get-away - well, the sky opened up and Millie got soaked! All things considered, better than getting stuck in a snow storm!!


I had the pleasure of attending an Original Florida Follies show, "Another Op'nin" Another Show" conceived, produced and directed by Cathy Dooley. The cast members are very talented with "show girls" between the ages of 60 to 94!!

The costumes were like what you would have seen in a production of the Ziegfeld Follies.

One of the outstanding numbers was when the cast presented a tribute to Abba in a medley from "Mamma Mia."

Another outstanding number was when they did "A tribute to Michael Jackson - "Beat It"

You had to see it, to believe what these ladies did!!!


The new community center in Delray offers many great programs. The one that I am hooked on is "Movies With Roger." This gentleman is a volunteer and shows his personal collection. After the movie is shown he conducts a discussion on the film that was shown.

All the films that I have seen so far, I have never heard of. Each one was a special experience:



American Violet

Nowhere In Africa

One movie I missed was "Two Family House" I did see that movie in 1999 and wanted to see it again but the capacity of the room is 37 people and it was filled to capacity!

Have you heard of, or seen, any of these movies?

And February isn't over yet! ;-)

I've never even heard of them, Millie, but if I run across them, I'll try to watch. I would love to see the follies women! Hope your temperatures rise soon.
Wow! Makes you wonder why you left Boston! Hope it warms up for you!

The revue sounds fascinating and fun!

I hadn't heard of any of the the but I am adding them to my Netflix queue. I especially interested in American Violet -- the preview frightend me but didn't surprise me.
Hope you have the opportunity to see the King's Speech, It's wonderful
I agree with Keith. The King's Speech is super
Your Follies sound like fun. Wonder if some were professional dancers when younger? They have a similar show group that receives good revues that I've read about in Palm Springs.

I haven't seen any of those movies but they sound interesting. Sounds like you'll have more in the future.

King's Speech does a very accurate job of presenting Speech Therapy's state of the art at that time for stuttering intervention. I enjoyed the movie -- some very good acting.
We had a similar group of dancers here called the "Hot Flashes." They were very professional and popular. I don't know whether they are still performing or not.

Some of those women in the grid look like they are in their 20's or 30's.

I am putting East/West on my queue. It looks interesting.

I posted a comment but it didn't show so I will repeat part of it.

I wondered if the daughter asked her mother if she wanted to get out or if she was assuming it would be best for her mother. Sometimes we think we know what is best for someone else, when that is not always the case.

Assuming the mother wants to be with people there are many organizations looking for volunteers and, not only is is rewarding, but it's a good way to meet people.

There are Senior groups in nearly every town where she can be with her own age group.
