Happy Hump Day

Wednesday==>Yes, HAPPY HUMP DAY to all of my loyal and faithful readers and followers out there in the hinterlands, wastelands, and boondocks, and in the morass known as cyberspace.

And ... yes ... even to my Worker Bee friends in their cubicles, wait-stations, broom closets etc etc.

Got stuff to do today, so let’s get this posting started with Billi Pod’s observations/comments on last night’s staged reading (remember, he does not give letter grades to staged readings) at the New York Musical Festival (NYMF) ...

NIGHTMARE ALLEY, about the ups and downs of a Depression-era con man and his carnival exploits, troubled past and fading love-life==>interesting and entertaining, but it needs a lot of work, of course. 

It comes close to being a rock-opera, rather than your traditional musical format.

When the show was over I came back to the cool confines of PHC to watch the 8:05pm YANKEES/RANGERS game from Arlington, TX.

It was a nail biter, with the Yankees scoring what turned out to be the winning run in the top of the 9th on a clutch hit from Brent Lillibridge (who??). The Yankees won 5-4, with Mo. getting his 32nd save of the season.

Tonight at 8:05pm is game 3 of the 4-game series with Andy Pettitte (7-7) on the mound for The Yankees vs. the newly acquired from The Cubs, Matt Garza (6-1) for The Rangers.

Moving on ...

This afternoon I have a routine appointment with my eye-doctor, Dr. Dina Weintraub, and then for the evening it will be an Off Broadway show down in SoHo ...

7:00==>BILL W. AND DR. BOB - “The story of the founding of AA and the power of recovery in the lives of millions, in AA and other 12 step groups.” (Off Broadway - complimentary ticket).

This is a revival of the show that had its New York debut 6-years ago. It is playing down in SoHo at the SoHo Playhouse and runs through December 3rd.

If the weather permits, I plan on walking back to the apartment (3+ miles) while listening to the final innings of the YANKEES/RANGERS game.

In closing ... yesterday wasn’t much of a walking day ...

Yesterday’s Pedometer mileage==>1.52 miles (or, 3,342 steps)

Total mileage since 7/1/13==>85.18 miles (average 3.70 miles per day)
