    True, when my father went on, I found my favourite photo of him, got it blown up, framed and hung, apart from a few little things that was about it really, didn't want to clutter the house with stuff that might have had sentimental value to him, but was worthless to me, memories are worth more!

    I understand. I have dresser drawers full of things that my in-laws saved of their family. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about the stuff, and they have both passed. Luckily, right now I have the space to spare. When I don't DH will have some decisions to make. It is an interesting mind exercise though, what will I save of my parent's stuff. Photos most likely, I will just scan and put them on discs. What will my children save of mine?

    I've never had an attachment to "things". My sisters are all the exact opposite. I had a beautiful teapot that was my Grammies. It sat on a shelf and got dusty and didn't mean anything to me so I gave it to my sis who cherishes it! So - clutter is not a problem I my house.

    dust - yes.

    I love coming back to find that you are still searching, striving, on a quest for better. I love knowing that their is a kindred spirit out there, even if we are both bat shit.

    I have a few things that were my grandmas and a can of rocks I got from my grandpa. They hold special meaning but I agree, it has to hold sentimental value to YOU, then it has value.

    First Meeting for the variety show was fun if a bit disorganized. Mike's suggested song will be used. He doesn't have a solo song, but will sing in the group numbers and be the bar busboy. I will be singing " Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" in an Andrews Sisters like trio and "Sentimental Journey" on my own. I let the directors put me where they wanted me.

    The director of "They're Playing our Song" has approached me 3 times about that show. Back in March he told me he wanted me for the lead. Last week, he made sure I intended to audition on Sept 3rd. Last night he told me that he would have the script for me next week. Gotta love favoritism in the theater. What lost me a role in "Hairspray" could get me the lead in another show. Hope I don't end up getting disappointed.

    BIW mod 3 lesson 9 Create Plays

    -Luck has nothing to do with will power. You need to create a series of plays to deal with an issue. A five step action process. ie. Starbucks LATTE method for customer relations

    - Get Stickey with it. Create an acronym to help you remember the steps.

    - Leverage muscle memory. Behavior change is enhanced when an awareness is connected with an action.

    You've got just what they want. Exciting to be courted like that.

    I'm still trying to puzzle out an appropriate rumble strip for my projects situation. But while I was doing so, I sat myself in the front room and did some clearing. Thanks for the inspiration, Pebbles!
