WE OPENED THE FIRST SHOW!


Take that, hurricane! This giant pine tree fell the right way. Across the street and not into the Fine Arts Building!!!! Brookwood Drive has 4 lanes.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 263


Let's get the boring stuff out of the way.......a hurricane named Irma flew over our town. We live far enough inland that she was a tropical storm by then. I hate wind. We lost power for 36 hours.....no TV, no internet, no a/c. Good thing the storm cooled the area down. Power came back on at 8pm Tuesday. We're fine and no damage to our house.


My friend in Houston is still cleaning up the props storage at the theatre where she works. 10,000 square feet of storage will take a lot of time. She's been sending me doll photos.


 

Let's call this one Irma. There'll be more and more Game of Thrones scenes recreated coming soon.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 262


Another week, another hurricane or three. The next couple of week should be interesting. Hurricane Irma won't be near where I live until Monday, lots of time to freak out and worry about a different set of friends.


My four friends that live in Houston came through Harvey pretty much in tack. I have a friend who does props for the Ally Theater, which got flooded out. There's a interesting photo essay on the Houston Chronicle's web site, if you're interested. One photo was perfect for today.

She was floating around the props storage and ended up on a table. It's freaky that her face is clean. 

Stay safe and dry my friends in Florida.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 260


The season 7 finale of Game of Thrones is on Sunday. Here's my tribute to the trailer.


 Hanging around the dragonpit:

"Should have blown this dump up, too. How dare they make me, Queen Cersei, first of her name etc, ect, wait"

"Chill out, Sis. They brought a present (damn, it better not be that dragon)"


 The Dragon Has Three Heads, I mean, Jon Snow Starke Tragaryen, AKA The King in The North, Daenerys Targaryen, Stormborn, Breaker of Chains, ect, ect, ect and Tyrion Lannister, Hand of The Queen.

"We brought you a gift from beyond the wall"


 "Ewe, it stinks! I don't believe in grumkins, snarks or whatever this is!"


 "And I brought Drogon"


 Ser Bronn of the Blackwater:" Dude, I told ya, my loyalty ends at dragons. I'm on the next boat to Essos"

Meanwhile, Beyond The Wall: 1 down and 2 to go. bwahahaha!

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 259


Nope, nope nothing to see here.


Just of trio of weird dolls hanging out. Last month I ask the Doctor to clear off the dinner room table so I could have room to do the flower project. This is what he did with these little sweeties. That clown one is winking at us!
