A Lot Has Happened In One Short Week - Thank You Bill III - Out Of Gas On Lover’s Leap - The Yankees - Tony Predictions

Friday==>It is hard to believe that at this very time one short week ago your favorite blogger was dealing with movers, tons of cardboard boxes, and a cable installer in a bare apartment located on the second floor at Paseo at Winter Park Village, here in The Sunshine State.

WOW! So much has happened in such a short time.

Yesterday afternoon, with the help of Bill III, we completed the last “major” project in making my new apartment feel like home, and that was the hanging of most of my 20 paintings. Actually, The Bill did 95% of the work and for that I am so very thankful.

This is what the living area looks like now ...
I still have to hang paintings in the bedroom and bathroom and that will probably be done tomorrow. I will do this by myself.

The hanging process was begun after we returned from Bill’s annual examination with his cardiologist. He did very well on his stress test and the doctor was pleased with everything.

The doctor, Barton G. Sickinger, was very pleasant and personable so I have scheduled a “new-patient” appointment with him for 10:45am on Wednesday, June 10th. Hopefully my medical records will be faxed to him by that time. His office is located about 2 miles from my apartment.

For the evening I had another major walk and wander session in my ‘hood and then settled in for an evening of baseball. The Yankees had the night off.

The walking stats for the day were pretty AWESOME==>6.60 miles.

Moving on ...

Billi Pod has a show for this evening ...

8:00pm==>OUT OF GAS ON LOVERS LEAP - “It is the night of their high-school graduation and Myst and Grouper, two bright, well-to-do teenagers, have driven to the local lovers leap for a private celebration. Myst is seventeen, and the daughter of a fading rock star of dubious morals; Grouper is also seventeen, and the son of an ambitious, self-important U.S. Senator. Myst is determined to deprive Grouper of his virginity, but he wants to wait until they are married and settled into domesticity. As they drink beer, smoke pot and engage in sharply amusing, yet disheartening, interplay, it becomes increasingly evident that they are very lost young souls whose ideals have been sadly eroded by the shoddy, self-centered example of their elders.” (discounted $12 ticket)

This is the opening night for this comedy/drama playing at The Breakthrough Theatre on West Fairbanks Avenue in Winter Park.

The venue is a little less than a mile from my apartment and I will, of course, walk to and from the show.

Now ... moving on to the sports scene ... for you Marty, even though you are way up there in The Big Apple.

Tonight at 7:05pm at Yankee Stadium, The House That Greed And Ego Built, the Yankees (29-25) start a 3-game series against the LA Angels (28-26).

On the mound for the Yankees will be Nathan Eovaldi (4-1) vs. Jered Weaver (4-4) for the Angels.

The Yankees remain on top of the AL East by 1-game over the Rays.

You are welcome, Marty ... 

In closing==>you loyal and faithful readers and followers can expect to have the benefit of Billi Pod’s Tony Award predictions in tomorrow’s posting.

In case you have forgotten, the show, hosted by Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming, will be at 8:00pm Sunday, carried on CBS.



Yesterday’s Pedometer mileage==>6.60  miles (or, 14,433 steps)

Total mileage for 2015==>619.69 miles (average 4.00 miles per day)
