Hi Gang, Went down to "the official opera house of Texas" yesterday. (The Grand - built in 1894 in Galveston - and survivor of _many_ nasty storms over the years.) Interesting place! Drove down to see the play "A Tuna Christmas". Nope. Had absolutely no idea what it was going to be about .. it just sounded like fun ... (I knew Galveston was famous for their 'Dickens on the Strand' extravaganza ... but I wasn't sure where this fit in.) [It's a tough show to get tickets for ... always sells out early ... but we finally remembered early enough this year (a couple months ago) to call ahead and reserve some seats.] The two actors, who have now written three plays involving the mythical residents of Tuna, Texas (3rd smallest town in Texas) have been touring these shows for over 20 years now. If you get a chance to catch one of these, I think you will enjoy it. A wonderful comedy lampooning the stereotypical residents of small town Texas. (Heck, I think more than half of the characters were in the audience with us!) And they were all there ... from the farm report radio DJs of station OKKK ... to the waitresses down at the Tasty Kreme ... from the reform school taxidermist ... to the chain-smoking owner of Didi's Used Weapons ... Great Fun: http://www.greatertuna.com/atc/atcphoto.htm Light hearted entertainment ... highly recommended! RonL.
