Yep, I have a “hidden passion”. My close friends and my relatives know about this… and now so too will my readers…

It’s a guilty pleasure. There are obvious reasons for my keeping this from you. Repercussions you know. Too often this passion causes assumptions (warranted or not) that one may not want to address. I however, don’t fit the “stereotypical” fan of this activity. This is something that gets me excited… watching it! I don’t participate, not because I’m left-handed (the reason I can’t participate in Jai Alai), but because 1 – I’m too old for it, and 2 – I lack the talent necessary for it…

I admire those who do participate at ANY level, and hold in awe those professionals that do it day in and day out – tirelessly and with seemingly unearthly abilities! It gives me the “goosies” as J-Lo likes to call them.

Last night I watched a very talented group of teenagers do it. I was amazed! They did it like they had been doing it for longer than their young lives would allow. Where do they learn these things? How did they get so good at it?

Of course, I’m talking about…

Musical Theatre…

Aw C’mon, you know you love it!

I’ve made it a habit… whenever I go to NYC, I try to see as many shows as possible. I’ve been known to squeeze in 9 shows in a week!

So, now you know BOTH of my passions! (I still have some “sub-passions” that I could share with you)

Getting back to last night. I watched a local company perform “Anything Goes”. First, I’m amazed that this show is still a) around, b) fun, c) relevant… after all… this show is almost 100 years old! Wow!

It’s enjoying a successful run on Broadway and is being done by companies throughout America. I’m hoping to catch it on tour.

Here’s a shot of last night’s performance of “Anything Goes”:

"Blow Gabriel Blow" starring Tabitha Hardy as Reno Sweeney




But, even as I write this, my main passion is live… I’m watching the horses at Keeneland in anticipation of the “Blue Grass Stakes” in about 2 hours from now. I’m especially interested in Hansen’s performance. There hasn’t been a lot of buzz around this horse lately… mainly due, I suppose, to his waiting for this race while the “hot” talk is about the winners and losers in the prep races already run.

This will either put the lid on him or propel him again to the top of this year’s class. We’ll soon see.

    I’m not sure exactly why but this website is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
