I haven't been on the forum for a while, been working too hard. Any free time goes to my wife and kids first. My first thought on logging in was how are you coming along. Is the Spinchicklette still excited about her impending baby sister? I love kids, wish we had a daughter, 3 boys can be too much testosterone sometimes. Did you ever finish that book...what was it? Ulysses? Questions, questions, questions. Praying for your health and an easy delivery!

Thanks OW, for asking. We just took our daughter to a sibling class yesterday. Based on her answers to some of the instructor's questions, she has a better handle on what to expect from having a baby around than most kids her age(which surprised both hubby and me). She's also "in charge" of decorating her sister's room - a job that had the potential to turn her into a pint-sized tyrant but one she has in fact, handled beautifully.

As for Ulysses, I am s..l..o..w..l..y wading though it. Actually enjoying it more than my attempts in the past. Thankfully, it's keeping me too busy to obsess about the beautiful rides I'm missing this Spring.

Be well!
I have a question for you SpinchickOutWest

Hows your Shakespeare? I picked up a couple of tickets for Bard On The Beach, here in Vancouver, where they set up big tents and a stage to perform various plays with the Pacific as a backdrop (unless its raining but thats fun because I love the sound of rain on canvas). Anyway we have to choose between Twelfth Night, Cymbelline and Henry V. I am familiar with the comedies so we could go to Twelfth Night but all I know about the others is that Cybelline is a drama with a happy ending and Henry V? I know nothing. Any comments?
Unfortunately, my Shakespeare knowledge is limitedSpinchick

as well. I attended a production of Twelfth Night done by a community theatre that was absolutely hilarious. For your setting, however, seems a drama would be a great choice. I read Henry V but don't know anything about Cymbelline. I seem to remember someone on this board having a decent knowledge of Shakespeare - maybe JS Haiku or Harlett? Whatever you decide, outdoor theatre in the summer is always a great way to spend an evening. Have fun!

...we chose Two Gentlemen Of Verona which was also hilarious. I'm leaning towards Cymbelline but you are right I'll post an enquiry. I wouldn't immediately chose Henry V because I would be afraid of it being too in depth for a rookie. On the other hand both my wife and I have found we enjoy plays so I wouldn't want to dismiss any of them out of hand.
THX, OW
