Well…We Partied!

I was mentioning to one of my non-puppeteer friends that I needed to post the pictures from the After-Christmas Christmas party and she told she was pleased to hear the party has come and gone because now I’ll update my blog! My blog…which is only about puppets…has followers that are not puppeteers. This comes as a bit of a surprise to me. I’ve oft been told by my dear mother that my blog was uninteresting to her and that I need to have another blog in which I journal the story of my life. See Mom, other non-puppeteers don’t mind that I blog just about puppets!
At the party, the subject of my blog came up, and to my delight Rob D’Arc announced that he liked my blog. However, when I stated that I had not posted in a while, he assured me that my *not* posting was one of the things he liked. Once you read my blog, you’ve read it and now it’s over. Not sure how to take that one…
Speaking of the party…which I meant to do this blog post…I got a book about finger puppets! There was actually a bit of a theme towards finger puppets for the whole event. Both my sister and Becket got actual finger puppets. The puppet that Becket made was finger puppet sized and I think the item that Mylinda got was on the smaller size as well. It looked like a toy theatre story. I made a glove puppet…a Christmas Punch! See:

The food hit of the potluck was Joan King’s fabulous baked beans. I took deviled eggs myself…which is usually a liked dish. It’s the first thing I ever learned how to make as a kid. Mom once told me I used to make a real mess of it too. She’d find little shells every where.

Rob told the best humor story of the evening…he regaled us with the adventure that was performing his “Flea Circus” show in Galveston this last December 2008. FEMA, being the snappy organization they seem to always be lately, had not yet recovered Galveston from the hurricane. But the show must go on! Kudos to Rob for donating his performance fees back to the town. “What was the story,” you ask? Alas, I cannot do it justice. You’d best ask him to tell you. But make sure he doesn’t leave out the part about the Texas Suite.
