I realize that no one here will go, including yours truly. But, maybe the word will get out, through that other place, and everyone from DFW, Austin, and Houston will show up.

What? Me..............make phun of Phred................

Surely, you jest.

No, and don't call me "Shirley".

Actually, I am making more fun of the fact he is actually going to this gooberfest, and the goobers he is going to encounter. He has never gone before, and he has no idea what he is in for............

Of couse I have to mention the stand out moment of the show for me. Two 5 year old girls with voices like small birds were singing in the hall by my room as I leaving. I teased them and said " No singing in the halls". One replied "You are not funny".


I'll have to check it out next year.
