New Theater

Our little town is restoring the old theater that closed in 1969.  They tore down the pharmacy that had been in its place for years and a group of citizens started working on it.  They had to clean the walls down many layers.  They found old murals on them that would have been neat to have been restored by they were too damaged.  The floor had to be all re-done also.  They just got the new front doors put on and now they are ready to put in the seating.  They are having a drive for people to help buy the seats.  There will be 215 seats and have 200 to buy for $250 each.  Then I am sure the filming equipment will be next.  Now that everything is digital, I have heard that part of it is quite expensive too.  It is supposed to open next Spring or Summer and will certainly be a great addition to our small town.  The nearest theater is 17 and 20 miles away.  You could walk to this one from most anywhere in town if you wished.  We old folks would drive of course. :0) I am looking forward to it opening.

First Car

It seems one of the first things a boy wants to do is drive the car.  It doesn't matter how young or old they are, they love to drive.  Here you see one of my little great grandsons taking a spin in his first car.  Wait another 12 years and he will probably have his permit and be driving a real car.  It doesn't take long for them to grow up.  They grow up way too fast it seems.

Birthday Party

Two great grandsons celebrated their birthdays together.  Their Mom made quite a cake and feast for all in attendance.  A pinata was had for the kids and they all had a great time trying to break it.  There was a lot of laughter as the little ones swung to break it and get the candy.  They didn't have much power behind their swing so it took awhile but once they broke it they scrambled for the candy.  It was a  lot of fun.

Scary Halloween

There are all kinds of costumes today.  A lot of super heroes and old time faces like Frankenstein.  Here is a scary mask. I think the little one isn't sure about his brothers scary mask.  But they had a lot of fun dressing up.  Kids always have a good time on Halloween.  Next year they will be older and will enjoy it even more

The great grandchildren came to see me.  There are some who live right here in town. It was so much fun to see them in their costumes.  I tried to have some fun with them.  I asked them if they were going to do a trick for me?  NO NO  CANDY was their cry.  I then asked if they would like something like an apple or perhaps a banana and they cried CANDY!!!!!  It was lots of fun to see them in their cute costumes.

Sound and Vibration Insulators

Have you ever been in a building where there were many people talking all at once and you could not hear the person next to you due to all the sound coming from everywhere?  We used to go to this fish fry every Friday night.  They had just built a brand new building.  It was set up to serve a great many people over a two hour period.  The first time we went, we did not know if we wanted to ever go back again.  Although it was a new building, the sounds of the people talking were almost unbearable. It just vibrated throughout the building.   Then I am sure they contacted the right people for sound control and installed a ceiling that absorbed the sounds.  It was so much more pleasant to enjoy a dinner there.  You could not hear all the kitchen banging around either and the kitchen people shouting to each other to fill up the buffet.  It is so good to be able to find high quality sound and vibration insulators to take care of such a problem and a great many other problems such as the one I wrote about.
