There you go
The Random Musings of a Wandering Soul "...is a thought, followed by a thought, followed by a thought, ad infinitum; a kind of wonder-wandering. I love to wonder-wander. It's what I am; it's what we are ... existential facts of some of my thoughts travels; collections of truths, half-truths, and fractions of truths that I wonder about."--Ken Nordine on Word Jazz copyright 2002-2005 Justin Thornburgh
That is my estimate on how much is packed.
For those who do not konw, we are moving to nice grown up apartment on Monday. We are moving out of the Knotty Pine Inn. We are moving into a nice 2 bedroom as yet to be named/photographed place. (If anyone is available, we will begin at 10:30 am...help...please)
It is hard to tell how much is actually packed since our little apartment is sprouting boxes out the wazoo. But in my estimation we only have the bathroom, about 1/3 of the kitchen and knick knack yet to pack.
This makes me happy, because packing is the worst part of moving in my opinion. I do not mind the schleping or the unpacking...it is the packing...
So, thanks be! We are almost done!

This comes for Tripp's most recent post. He talked about how his craft of a singer was affirmed by Bobby McFerrin. Here is my story.
I was working stage crew at college and Mr. Hal Holbrook brought his Mark Twain one man show through.
It had been a long day and was leaning against a table taking a break when someone started giving me a shoulder rub. It was Mr. Holbrook. He said Thanks, you all are great. Needless to say, I was Freaked out a little...I am getting a sholder rub from Hal Freakin' Holbrook. We chatted a little bit. I told him about me, and when I said I was from Springfield, he started asking about people who were extras in a movied he shot there years ago. He rememberd their names.
As for the afirmation it was 2-fold. One was that he encouraged me to keep plugin away at my craft, and don't be afraid to do my own thing. But the most important was that of a very humble man who did not forget those who helped him get to where he was.
One other one was Gary Sinise. I met him after the first preview of The Steppenwolf's production of One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest several years ago. He was also a very nice guy. He stood by the stage door chatting with 2 friends and I for a good 25-30 minutes. He encouraged us all to keep our hearts in the game and 2 of us started our own theater companies. But the other thing was that of a very humble man who did not forget those who helped him get to where he was.
Seems to be a theme. A theme I will never forget

Last night Mae and I went to a movie. More accurately, Mae, Trish, Tripp and I went to a movie. Actually, Mae, Trish, Tripp, about 1200 other people and I went to a movie last night. We all went to Kate's and Larry's movie. We went to the world premier of Say Hello To Clive For Me at the Pickwick Movie Theater.
Kate was the art director for the movie, and Larry co-wrote the script. It was a fun little crime drama/comedy in the veign of Oceans 11 and more had the style of the English Crimainal movies like Lock, Stock and 2 Smoking Barrells. It was quite fun. They began filming the movie about a year ago, and wrapped on our wedding day.
It was fun to go to a premier, everyone dressed up all nice and stuff. Mae looked fabulous. Trish looked like a movie queen in her black and white. And Tripp and I wore kilts. What would you expect. (I hope to have pictures soon.)
Afterward we went to IHOP.
All in all a good night!
