    My Daughter left this morning at 7:30 to go to Ottawa. Her band was invited to the "Nationals".
    They play tonight at 10, stay overnight and come back tomorrow.

    My "plan" for the day was to finish my Kraft Dinner Student's marking.
    That didn't happen. I did some, but I wasted a LOT of time online today.

    I think I just needed a mental "holiday" from the Silent Movie deadline. Time to breathe.

    Tomorrow I'll finish it.

    Really.

    • Ok, I thought I'd post the Silent Movie graphics, so you can see what I've done.
      Remember these are my 1st Photoshop drawings. (well, they are more like creative collage tracings)
      I'm going to include the narration. After each narration, the graphic appeared and the band played about 8 bars of music (a different song for each character):

      Narrator: A Nickelodeon Melodrama – The Saga of Larry Laroo

      Band: Introduction



      Narrator: This is a story of friendship, trust, and dastardly deeds. Our hero is Larry LaRoo.

      Band: Turkey in the Straw



      Narrator: Larry has received a letter from his dear old friend, Sweet Nelly Nicely.

      Band: Oh, You Beautiful Doll



      Narrator: Nellie has won a prize in a dance contest, a pair of Golden Slippers.

      Band: Oh, Dem Golden Slippers



      Narrator: She needs Larry’s help because someone has stolen her Golden Slippers.

      D Band: Oh, Dem Golden Slippers



      Narrator: For help on his quest to help Nellie and find her missing slippers, Larry calls on his old pal, Sagebrush Simon.

      • Narrator: So Sagebrush climbs on his mule, and Larry mounts his trusty steed Fred.

        Band: The Old Grey Mare



        Narrator: Off they go to meet up with Sweet Nelly Nicely.

        Band: Oh, You Beautiful Doll



        Narrator: They meet Nelly in Deadwood. Nellie has heard that a friend has some information about her missing slippers. And so it’s Westward Ho!, off to see Little Big Chief Running Nose.

        Band: Indian War Chant



        Narrator: At the Indian village they learn that the Golden Slippers…

        Band: Oh, Dem Golden Slippers



        Narrator: …have been stolen by Terrible Ted Tumbleweed.

        Band: Scary theme



        Narrator: The Chief says, (in chief’s voice) “Ted, he headum West!” So away they go after Ted and the slippers.

        • Narrator: On the trail they meet a mysterious lady dressed in red.

          Band: My Darling Clementine



          Narrator: She is accompanied by three very short miners, Weenee, Beenee and Sneezey.

          Band Wiffenpoof Song



          Narrator: Sneezy exclaims, (in Sneezy’s voice) “Terrible Ted (sneeze!) is headed (sneeze!) to his cabin on the (sneeze!) mountain.” And off they go, up the mountain.

          Band: On Top of Old Smokey



          Narrator: The group camps for the night. (agitated) When they awaken the next morning, Nellie is missing and the tracks lead up the mountain to Terrible Ted’s cabin. Now he has the Golden Slippers and Nellie. Larry sends Sagebrush to town on an important errand. He and the Chief close in on the cabin of Terrible Ted Tumbleweed.

          Band: Scary theme



          Narrator: When they reach the cabin they inform Ted that he is surrounded and he must give up. Ted yells out (in Terrible Ted’s voice) “I want $50,000 or you will never see Nellie or the slippers again.” Just then, Sagebrush arrives with Old Granny Tumbleweed.

          Band: M-O-T-H-E-R



          Narrator: Granny pleads with her son, (in Granny’s voice) “If you give yourself up, sonny, I’ll bake you your favorite Sweet Tater Pie.”

              Narrator: and dear old Granny Tumbleweed…

              Band: M-O-T-H-E-R

              Narrator: All head back to the Indian village for a good old-fashioned wild-west hoedown and barbeque, AND THEY ALL LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER!

              Band: William Tell (reprise)

              We had fun playing it and the audience laughed!
              Of course our narrator was a member of the community theatre company, so he was great!

                • LOL! Congratulations on all the successes! Your family is on a roll.

                  But I do think Larry was too soft on Terrible Ted... And what of the mysterious lady in red? There is room for a sequel here, methinks.

                    • Thursday

                      I woke up around 6:15, stayed awake for about 15 minutes. I thought about getting up, but I couldn't find a good enough reason. I fell back asleep and woke up at 9.

                      I FINALLY finished marking Kraft Dinner Student's exam and I handed in the marks.

                      I made the Papillon's pen bigger this afternoon. It now includes two large pine trees with branches touching the ground and a huge poplar stump. Lily is in heaven She has her own little "forest" to explore Josie doesn't really care.

                      For the first time since January (maybe October) I have NOTHING pressing to do!! I've finished with my Home Instruction Student, my ESL AQ is finished and the Silent Movie graphics are done. So, how long before I give myself another "job"??

                      My Daughter is home from Ottawa.
                      College Son worked planting tobacco today.

                                I fear I am no longer 139.

                                I refuse to get on the scale.
