I hope that everyone saw my recent post giving thanks to all the commiittee for their planning.  My life is more complicated than I want.  Besides my health issues and my husband's bad hip we got a call from our youngest son in the Navy yesterday morning.  He headed out yesterday on assignment so we might not hear from him again for some time.  This keeps us on edge.  I don't know if anyone has been affected by the recent Cyber Security attacks but we have been on an iPhone of my husband and my computer.  I've been on top of it and have good protection.  Just warning people to check your protection on all your devices.  I thank the reunion committee for all your work.  I hope to join you at another reunion.  Please stay in touch.  Have fun.

Happy 50th Reunion to all my fellow 1967 graduates.  Unfortunately I am unable to attend the festivities due to a previous 2 day seminar commitment I will be attending.  I have enjoyed reading all of the posts and wish everyone a wonderful celebration!!  I do hope to get to Monterey Court to see Craig play.  Maybe I'll get to see some of you there.  50 years since high school has been quite an exciting ride.  I wouldn't have changed a thing -- well, maybe one or two!  I am happily retired from telecommunications for over 12 years and now work for a locally owned Auto Glass Company.   No, I didn't go back to work due to boredom.  I went back to manage my time.  Seems there is an incredible volunteer network in Tucson and when they find out you volunteer everyone calls.  Going back to work, part time, was a great way to be home more often.  So, my volunteering has been downsized to the NICU at UMC, now Banner UMC.  Best wishes to everyone, Rosie

Posted some pix on the photo gallery, but being computer illieterate, there are a couple that need rotating...if anyone can do that, feel free to do so!  Had a great time at the Reunion seeing people we haven't seen in 50 years!   Thanks again to the Reunion Committee for your dedicated and hard work!  Waiting for 55th!!   Blessings to all!!!

That should be "illiterate."   I may be computer illiterate, but I usually am a pretty good speller  (or should that be "spelor?")

Ok PV Classmates, it's been a while since I posted anything with the move back to Tucson and all, but, the good news is that I will be playing at Monty's (Monterey Court 505 West Miracle Mile) on Sunday, August 5th for Sunday brunch! I will be joining the host, Nancy Elliott, from 10 to 1 ... and the format is 45 minute sets ... she starts off for 45 minutes, then me for 45 minutes, then repeat until one o'clock (so I'll be doing 2 sets). Some info you need to know ... due to the monsoon and warmth of the Tucson summer, the venue will be in the cafe, not in the outdoor patio ... unless we get a super cold front coming through:) With that in mind, you'll need to make reservations, 'cause they can only seat 40 people ... so call to reserve your table asap ... 520-207-2429! Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces there:)  Btw, this message is from Craig Plotner:)

Just a quick reminder ... I will be pick'n and grinnin' at Vero Amore (2920 N. Swan) this Thursday, the 16th from 6 to 9 p.m. (inside where it's cool). If you have not been here, you are in for a culinary treat ... check out their menu on fb! And don't forget, I'll also be at the Plaza Palomino Farmer's Market/Mercado (same location) on Saturday, the 18th from 8 to 11 a.m. This market will have 60+ vendors for your shopping pleasure! And then, I'll be at the Picture Rocks Farmers Market (Picture Rocks Rd/Sandario Rd on Sunday, the 19th from 8 to 11 a.m. Would love to see you at one or more of these events:)

Gig change ... I was informed a couple of days ago that the Picture Rocks Farmers Market has decided to temporarily suspend the live music on Sunday due to small vendor and foot traffic response, so I won't be there this Sunday! HOWEVER, I'm looking forward to being at Plaza Palomino tomorrow morning ... 8 to 11! Btw, thanks to those of you who made it out to Vero Amore last night ... had a great time and really appreciate your support:) And special thanks to Kay (Freistedt) and Randy (Reiter) Novotny, Susan Mackin and Gavin Kayner for coming in to listen ... it was great to see you all!

Ok, here's the final gig schedule before my 'vacation' of several weeks from my knee replacement surgery on the 29th! I have been asked to return to the Plaza Palomino Farmers Market/Mercado this Saturday, the 25th from 8 to 12 AND, I will be at the Picture Rocks Farmers Market (Picture Rocks/Sandario) on Sunday, the 26th from 8 to 12 as well. Hope you can make it for one of those ... lots of great Christmas shopping ideas:)

Hey everybody, it's been a while since I've been on here, but just want to let you all know that Sandi and I moved back to Tucson (from Kansas) 2 years ago and boy, are we glad to be back!  I'm still pickin' my guitar an singin' in venues around Southern AZ (when we're not dealing with COVID-19), but I also want to let you know that I'm doing a Livestream video concert on FB every Thursday at 4 pm Tucson time.  Today (5/14/2020) will be Episode 7 of my Home Gig series.  I play a wide variety of styles and genres, but it's mostly what I call 'easy listening'.  If you want or need to relax a little while dealing with all the stress of the day, tune in, sit back and enjoy!  I'll be doing 2 - 45 minute sets with a 15 minute intermission and this is a public event ... you can find it on my FB page, "Craig Plotner".  A few classmates have already found this, so I'm hoping a few more of you would like to join us:)  Hope you and your families  are all well and staying safe!

Hey Craig,

Thanks for your latests news. Will definitely check out your posts. Glad you and yours are keeping well during these strange times. Norma and I are hanging in - some days by less than fingernails! Keep on pickin' and grinnin'! Gavin

Thanks for your response, Gavin.  Hope you're still writing ... with everything we're dealing with now, it seems you would have lots of opportunity to do what you do so well in expressing the human condition.  Stay safe, my friend:)

C - yup, keeping busying with the writing. For example - writing stories based on Edward Hopper paintings - keeping me off the streets. Pax - G

Good to hear, Gavin ... certainly wouldn't want you out on the streets ... LOL!

Hey Craig,

 

Did I note your presence at the OPP Zoom meeting last evening? Gavin


11/03/20 09:38 AM #38    

Craig Plotner

Hey Gavin,  yes, we were on the OPP Zoom meeting last night for Mel Hector's 'St. Be Seein' Ya' play.  Sandi did all the T-Shirts the cast members were wearing.  The sad part is that because of the positioning of the actors as far as the cameras for the zoom, we couldn't really see any of the shirts completely!  There was the title on the front with a 'waving hand' representing a Caucasion hand and then on the back, there was a larger waving African-American hand.  For the second act, each actor got another shirt with the colors reversed.  We enjoyed the play, but were disappointed that the shirts were not completely seen as they added more of a visual to the story line ... lots of work went into those!  By the way,  the shirts were not screen printed ... it was all vinyl, with multiple separate layers on each side.  Also, Sandi wanted me to mention that we actually met Mel when we attended your play, so thank you for that connection:)  If you were able to see the shirts completely, please let us know.  Hope you are well my friend:)

Craig,

That's right, your wife is in that sort of biz - the T-shirts.

Unfortunately, as you suggested, they didn't play as well as they night have due to screen size and actors' positions.

Clever idea, though.

FYI - I'll have a brand-new play being read/performed Monday, November 16 - 7 PM via Zoom at an OPP meeting and November 23rd - two short plays.

If you care to eavesdrop and even add to the commentary following - send me your email address and I'll pas the link along.

Take good care,

Gavin

Craig,

Wanted to check in with you - make certain you and yours are faring well.  And that however your Thanksgiving is spent - it is safe.

Craig Plotner

Hey Gavin, just saw your message from yesterday (11/23), and unfortunately, I missed your play:(  When you mentioned it a couple of weeks ago, I had planned on watchng, but time got away from me!  Please let me know when you have other productions available.  Hope you and Norma have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving as well:)
