Finally, Some Good News from Phoenix!

by Pa Rock
Seasonal Whiner

Sometimes it seems really difficult to think of Phoenix, Arizona, in a positive light - what with it being the home of Joe Arpaio, Jan Brewer, Russell Pearce, and thousands upon thousands of teabagger numskulls packing firearms and telling each other how much Jesus would have hated Mexicans.   The stupidity is absolutely exhausting.

Blanket all of that nonsense with day-after-day of record-breaking heat, and it the whole mess just seems unbearable.

But change is in the air, literally.  It rained last Thursday, a long, slow, lovely rain that soaked the ground and dragged the temperatures down - and tonight it looks and feels as if it could rain again.  Rain, glorious rain!

The other bit of good news is that the theatre season is ramping up.  Nearly Naked Theatre, a great small venue, will present Parallel Lives, a play by Kathy Najimy and Mo Gaffney from August 31st through September 15th.  And then four days after that production ends, the Phoenix Theatre  begins its run of Monty Python's Spamalot.   All of that should be great fun!

Now my goal is to have my house completely unpacked and settled by the time I go to Parallel Lives, probably on September 14th or 15th.  It can be done, but will take a lot of hard work and concentration because I am also going to visit each of my three children between now and then.   Going to the play will be my reward for getting my work done!
