Twenty Wishes: Wish #4

My 4th wish is to be on the stage again!  For years, my husband and I and other members the family participated in a number of plays and musicals at our old church.  Our kids even got involved on a couple of occasions.  We were all members of a group called the “POP-Corn Players.”  (POP was short for Prince of Peace, as in Prince of Peace Lutheran Church.)  It was truly great fun and between us we played quite a score of characters!  My husband, A.J., was a grandpa in several of the plays.  In more than one he was married to my mom; in another he was trying to marry my sister but married me by mistake (much to his chagrin).  He also played a country singer (ex-husband to my character who was also a country singer), King Pharoah to my brother’s Joseph (in a tribute to Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber), and he was even Joliet “Jake” Blues to my brother’s Elwood once or twice!  Meanwhile, I portrayed everything from a cafe hostess to a city clicker to a swine and a singing bird named “Kookie” (the pet of a mad musician).  Most of the plays were written and directed by my mother.  She is so talented and we were thankful that her nepotism always ensured we’d get a good role.  (Just kidding… NOT!)  Doing those plays together was such great fun.  I look forward to it again, someday soon, I hope, before we’re all too old to climb the steps to the stage.   Start writing, Mom, and find us a venue!  It’s showtime!

  1. Sheesh. My brain is tied up in knots over “Show Biz.” It’s exactly one week away and still have tons to do. Made a Carmen Miranda costume today.

    Let me know when you’re off on the 3rd. Friday of the month. I’ll write you in.

  2. I think other web site proprietors should take this website as an model, very clean and excellent user friendly style and design, as well as the content. You are an expert in this topic!

  3. Christian SuperHero… Your point is well taken. The Twenty Wishes series is completely separate from my purpose in life as God has intended it, but as I read in the book, and I am already learning in life, through my journey to accomplish all of my wishes, God is leading me to places I never imagined. It is a blessing.
