Alphabe-Thursday on Things and Theatre

"Good teaching is one-forth preparation and three-fourths pure theatre." - Gail Godwin

Jenny, from "Off on my tangent" blog has presented the letter "T" this week.



By the end of my post you just may be inspired to perform any number of these acts yourself!  If you already have, why not share your experience here!  I'd enjoy hearing your story.

So many THINGS we find ourselves doing like-

and more importantly, why we deem it necessary to dig 

Like, to bury our wishes.
Inspired by Ziva's
"I Will"
note in an episode of N.C.I.S.
from her childhood days,
where you write down your wishes and find a secret place to bury it!

Other Important THINGS many of us have buried.

Time Capsules

of all kinds of sorts and styles.

other things such as-
Loved ones
Stones, for Stone Soup, and
too many other things to list.

Then there's one
entertains us.


Meet the Washing Well Wenches
They thrive at getting you WET!

The Wacky Chicken Show
a husband and wife team.
They also perform in
The Theatre of Fools
A Life of Serious Nonsense
a link for the Wacky Chicken Show

The Wacky Chicken's Rooster

A fairy fluttering about Fairy Wing Forest

Theatre, of all things that glitter and dance.  Fairies, pixies and magical creatures that call this place their home sweet home.

Just a group photo of all things creature-like.  They make appearances all day, along with the daily parade of the Royal Court and other fun festival entertainers that roam the grounds at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.
live on
16 Stages of Entertainment
besides live Armored Jousting
not to be missed.

Your life is filled with happiness and fun. I love it. BTW, one of my favorite characters of all time is "ZIVA" from NCIS. I am crushed that she is gone.

WAAAAA! I missed the last episode of Ziva on NCIS!!! O.k., so much for that. This is a brilliant post, Karen! I love everything about it, especially the dog digging and the road with the daisies. Oh, also the chicken lady. I really should dress like that.

I was sad to see Ziva go -- I really liked her character.
I enjoy our Renaissance Festival -- with the various shows and the parade! All the performers walk around the grounds and call us wenches and such!! So much fun!

Sandra Tyler said...

I would be afraid if my dog digs like that.

That looks like such a lot of fun! I'd love to see the Wacky Chicken show!

I did a time capsule once in elementary school. Couldn't tell you what I put in it or where it is now, but it was fun and I hope whomever finds it, enjoys!

Jenny said...

There are things that we treasure and seeing all of the terrific ideas you share is definitely one of them...

The performances at the theater look like a real treat too!

Thanks for linking to the letter "T"!


Jenny said...

And I remember burying time-capsules when I was a little girl...

I never actually dug them back up though...

Thanks for making me think of the times from my childhood that I treasure!

Hugs and another A+
