Tree Friend

I love the city. I do not think I could ever call a city home again. It is 6 a.m. as I listen to the bird song and open the door to allow the voice of the robin that will build its third year’s nest in the leaves of the red maple I can almost touch.

Do you believe one can make a friend of a tree? I have a tree friend. My willow friend is there each time I walk out my door no matter the time of year, month or day.

THE PROJECTS – A Dinner for One

A Dinner for One

Was presented on Saturday – March 21 at the Fortney Caberet
in the basement of the Hotel Fortney
Main Steet – Viroqua
The original Dinner for One, also known as The 90th Birthday, or by its corresponding German title, Der 90 Geburtstag , is a comedy sketch written by British author Lauri Wylie for the theatre in the 1920s.
German television station Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) recorded a performance of the piece in 1963, in its original English language. This short comical play subsequently went on to become the most frequently repeated TV program ever (according to the Guinness Book of Records, 1988-1995 eds.; later editions no longer have the category).
The 18 minute black-and-white 1963 TV recording featuring British comedians Freddie Frinton and May Warden has become an integral component of the New Year’s Eve schedule of several German
television stations and Danish national television.
