That’s right people, I was a child star! Check it out!
I was one of the wicked step-sisters in the play Cinderella! I had to post this as I have recently become Facebook friends with several of the members of that play. A couple of them have a pic of them in the play in their photo’s section. I just happened to see this the other day and finally got around to putting it on my Facebook page.
The theatrical group was actually created by the town doctor’s wife. She was an actress and has actually been an extra in some movie’s back in the day.
My mom worked at that doctors office. It was down the street from our house, so us kids hung out at the office a lot. We used to help with filing, copying and other menial tasks. My favorite was going through the filing cabinets and finding misplaced files. I found many a file that had been missing for ages!
My first job was babysitting the doctors kids. Let’s just say it was an adventure! These kids would ride bikes in the house, and just plain old raise some cane!
There was a fireplace between two room’s in the house. I was missing a kid…he ended up being UP the chimney!
My first REAL JOB was in the office itself. I was graduating, my mom was quitting (she was only PT and had another FT job) , so I took over. I knew most of the goings – on there since I had hung out there for years. I started a few weeks before my mom left so I could learn the rest.
That was one of my favorite jobs.
But back to my stardom….
I was also on the TV shows Salty Sam and the Magic Toyshop when I was a child.
And that led to my awesome career as a radio host – ha-ha!
I could have been a belly-dancer!
Several years after the theater stuff, the doctors wife then started teaching belly dancing classes. A couple of friends and I took the class, along with my mother and a few of her friends.
One night we had a practice or a show… I want to say it was a show with only a few people in the audience….
I had skipped it to hang with my new boyfriend. Apparently, in the middle of a number, MY MOTHER accidentally stepped on the hem of her belly dancing skirt and it kind of slipped down- quite a bit!
I missed the best show in town!
Darn that boyfriend…I also missed my prom and quit organ lessons because of him…..
(Are you starting to see how I got the way I am? Just wait till the book comes out….more secrets revealed )
On to Non-Stardom related stuff
A few days ago, the temps were around 60. It was so sunny and beautiful out. People were literally skipping around with Spring Fever!
My son got stung by a bee opening the front door! A moth was happily frolicking around the kitchen that night!
2 days later…..
Back to painting
This weekend I continue painting. I have one more bedroom wall and one more office wall, then it all needs a second coat. I figure I MIGHT start the master bathroom this weekend as well.
Oh course that could all be shot to Haddes if something better to do comes along!
