The Glass Menagerie and Time with my Girl

This past weekend I was able to get away and spend some time with my sweet Daughter at her college.  With all the craziness going on with my youngest son, I haven't had a lot of time to focus on her and lately she has been dealing with some things that just needed some extra time from Mom.  Not that I solved any of her problems, but I hope just having some girl time helped alleviate some of the stress. 

On Saturday we did a little shopping and then saw "The Glass Menagerie" which was being performed by a local theatre group known as the Averitt STARS at the Emma Kelly Theatre (as part of Averitt Center for the Arts in Statesboro, GA)  I hadn't read this play since high school and it was a lot of fun to see it on stage and the cast did a wonderful job bringing the Wingfield family to life.  It was also nice to see one of the great Tennessee Williams works in honor of his 100th birthday!  I think now I am going to have to reread some of his Southern classic!   

Don't think we were being too high brow though,
because we ended our night with delivery pizza and cherry pie
 in her apartment while watching an early 80s teen movie! 
A good time was had by all.
