Smacksy Saturday Photo: Safe as Houses


Thank you for your concern for us during the Southern California fires. We are miles away from the worst of it and save for a little smoke, we are untouched and just worried about our So Cal neighbors who are riding out the firestorm.


Fans


This photo recently surfaced on Facebook from a 1981 production of Chicago I was in. (I'm the third showgirl from the left.) I don't remember much about the show other than I know that summer was a lot of fun. I'd never seen this photo before but seeing it, I felt that giant fan back in my hands. A long forgotten memory recovered - does that make it a new memory or a new-old memory? No matter. We razzle dazzled 'em.

32




32 Years ago, I was given the gifts of hope and help, and for that I am forever grateful. I celebrate sobriety today, and every day, and i know in my bones this life would not be possible without it.

Tuckered


Yes, of course I squished his little face.


Tiny Vase


I wish for you, a friend who remembers you with gestures like a gift of this tiny vase. (It made my day, Emily.)




Levels


Our hotel in Chicago was just fine and then I noticed this photo hanging crooked in our room. If you know me, you know I immediately tried to level it. To my horror, I found that the photo was screwed into the wall in this off-kilter way and not moveable. Screwed into the wall, friends. Obviously, it made me a little itchy the whole trip. For future not-screwed-into-the-wall situations, I may start keeping my tiny level in my purse. Yes, I'm a little crazy, but haven't we established that already?
