SHE'S BIGGER ON THE OUTSIDE


                                                                                                             And looks just like Jodie Whittaker, who I'll stop calling "Danny's Mom"(from Broadchurch) My BFF sent the TARDIS awhile ago.

REMEMBR WHEN THAT HURRICANE CAME THROUGH?
 And did this to one chimney?


 Here it is, plied up neat and tidy. We're so lucky (and happy) that the bricks came down 1-2 at a time. This hitting the roof would have been a true nightmare and would have cost more then $500 to repair. Thank you, homeowner's insurance. The fire place this was attacked to sits between our bedroom and dining room.


 I moved all the broken bricks to the front yard.


And we now have  sweet brick edging.

Here's a fan favorite character...………...

Beric Dondarrion, with his flaming sword. Last seen running for his life (with Tormnd) away from the Night King's attack on Eastwatch- the -used-to-be -by - the -Sea. Did they make it to safety? We'll have to wait...…….and wait.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 317

Remember these? What was their appeal? Always thought that they were just ugly. Not to mention creepy as hell.                                                                                                                                          

   My internet problem seems to be fixed. For now.

INTERNET ISSUES


For the past couple of days , I've been have problems accessing the internet. All fixed now. Regular posts will continue soon. Meanwhile, enjoy the cat                                                                                                                                                                              
The regal Mr. Scooty, gone but not forgotten

WE DODGED A BULLET                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        We're fine. All we got was the outer eastside of the hurricane. The power flickered off and on around 7pm, but stayed on. The wind gust started about 10pm. That caused the cap on one of the chimneys to blow off and wrap around a smaller chimney. The noise that made was awful, coupled with the bricks blowing unto the roof, rolling down and off to the ground. It sounded like a monster was jumping up and down. Thank goodness it didn't last long. By midnight, it was over. Wanting to live somewhere where the weather isn't trying to kill me isn't asking too much, is it?

Here's Dany from season 3, I think. Oh, Game of Thrones, duh.  We're sitting around waiting for yet another hurricane. Shh, don't say "climate change", in the past 10 years there sure have been an up tick in how many are going over my area. The university is closed today and tomorrow all staff and faculty report back to work....who are they kidding? The director of FEMA said Southwest Georgia could have a power outage for 2 or 3 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry, can't sew in the dark. I'll keep you posted when I can.


As of 11:15am est, usa, no wind or rain. We should get the brunt of this in the evening/overnight. Yeah, no sleep of me.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 315



It's the Last Centurion, AKA Rory from Dr. Who                                                                                                                                  
 

Rory was an awesome companion.  I've been a Dr. Who fan since the mid-80's (Hello, Tom Baker) so I'm really looking forward to the new female Doctor! Which I think starts in the next couple of weeks.

A SHOW POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WHAT!!!!!!!!



I know it's been awhile since I posted about a show. Our first one this year was called Hands on a Hardbody. The hardbody being a pick-up trunk that a dealership in Texas was giving away to the winner of a contest. The last person standing with their hand on the truck wins. It's based on a true event.                                                                                                                            
 Our talented student cast, a mix of freshmen and upper-classmen. male and female, Black and White.                                                                                                                                              
 The men: Terrance D. Searcy (Ronald), Brandon Chandler (Greg), Mark Sheme (Benny), Aaron Thomas Moore (JD), Daniel Lennox, Jr. (Chris), Melvin Galloway (Jesus), James Bohler Rowell, IV(Don, husband to Janis) and Savannah Kern (Virginia, wife of JD)                                                                                                                          
 The women: Diana McCasland (Heather), Taylor Gay (Kelli), Savannah Kennedy (Janis) and Liz Perez (Norma)                                                                                                                                  
                                                                                                           




Heather my have a leg up on winning. With Jared Watson (Mike) owner of the dealership.









 Janis suspects something is rotten in Longview, Texas.

 Cindy (Ursula Trassorras) tells Jesus that she'll need to see his "green card" if he wins. But he was "Born in Laredo"

 The last 3! Norma, JD and Benny. No spoilers!

 Oh, no! The last 2! Norma getting some much needed support from Ronald and Chris.   In this photo you can see the casters the truck was on so it could be spun around the stage. And the cover over the bed so the actors could jump on the truck. Yes, it's a really full size pick-up truck. The engine, transmission and gas tank were removed. The tires are real and the headlights work.


 Yep, our building has a loading dock, but it's not attached to the scene shop. Getting a full size truck into the building took about 3 hours. The 3 sets of doors had to be removed, the mirrors had to come off and the back bumper was removed. All the scene shop students can now put "auto body work" on their resumes.

After the strike, the truck was given to someone who towed it away for free. They wanted the body.


Bye, truck!

The photos are from Genny Muncy and Paul Levy.

The last 2 are from Phillip "We'll never get a truck up stairs to the Lab Theatre" Brulotte, our new Technical Director.

Esther Iverson designed the costumes, Noah E. Dalton designed the lighting, Ruth Brandvik designed the set. Jacque Wheeler directed. Oh, did I mention that this show is a musical?

Since last Wednesday, 3 more grads have come to visit! Our students must have had an awesome experience with us. We can't seem to get rib of them!

      

Here's a little Russian doll and a wooden St. Basil church. She has a pretty hand painted face. No idea what the letters spell. Any guess?

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 313


Hands up if you like Hitchcock movies. My favorite one is Vertigo. A Vertigo Barbie would be a broken one? Found this looking around Google Images. Don't know if it's a DIY one or if it was on the market.

Ga Ga was pretty good in the role. The next American Horror Story is returning in September, and yes, Jessica Lange is back!


Got an e-mail this morning letting me know how to get notices when comments happen. So Google is watching us, good thing I'm not paranoid! I followed the link and should be seeing comments again. Thanks for stopping by.

Found this searching the web images and there was no info on who's photo it is. If it's yours, let me know.

Still not getting notices when a comment happens. I don't know what's up with that. Thank you for the support over the past few years, it means a lot to me.

FYI                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Thank you for the support and comments.

The Belle action figure from the most recent version of Beauty and the Beast.                                                                                                                                      

Funny the dress looks better than the one in the movie.

I've been in a funk and haven't  been keeping up. Still working at my longtime job(we had great shows this summer) One of these days I'll get back in the groove.

Nothing offensive about that. (Yeah, there is) Look close: I think the difference between them is the beard. And the male has bangs

Haven't found any in a while. Last week I had a couple of days off and checked out a store I haven't been to for a long time. Found 3 dolls! Here's the first one:                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
She's made out of straw and I love the smile on her face.                                                                                                                                    

The label says: Made in Ecuador. Guess somebody when there on vacation.

 WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 305



  For some reason I put these two in the "Art Folder"                                                                                                                                    

                                                                                                              The exhibit was last year and the artist's name is Hannah A. Lindquist.

"The King of the North, The King of the North". The North doesn't care the his name is "Snow" and not "Stark".  They made him their King anyway.                                                                                                                                                
 Sam and Bran come running in ( ok, Bran gets wheeled in by Sam): Jon, we have something really important to tell you!



 Jon to Dany: Wanna go on a boat trip?


Sam to Bran: Too late! He's really a Targaryen and Dany's his Aunt!


Stay tuned for Season 8, sometime in 2019 and the next 2 books. Sometime in the future (we hope)

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 303

Can you stand more Game of Thrones? Of course, you can.

A big fan favorite was Oberyn Martell, AKA The Red Viper,   and Daddy of The Sand Snakes. He was holding a major grudge against the Mountain for killing his sister. Do to a round about story line, he became the champion for Tyrion. I know, if you don't know the books/TV show, you have no idea what I'm talking about.



Oberyn fights with a (poisoned) spear and lightweight amour. The Mountain fought wearing heavy amour and a big assed sword. To bad, Oberyn got all extra and didn't just finish him off. The Mountain ended up killing Oberyn in the grossest death in the series: popped his head like a melon.




Watch your back!

Another baby doll in a tree from Isla De Las Munecase in Mexico City. From Wonderers Hub


Is it just me, or does the doll look weirdly happy?

Sorry about posting so late. I've been having internet problems all afternoon.
