Effie at the Farm

Do lots for Dolittle

With opening night of Dr. Dolittle fast approaching, Ferg and I went to check up on the props coordinators.

We arrived to find Gillian swimming on some sort of wheeled contraption. Still not sure what that was all about.

Ferg timed the between-scenes prop shelving:

I hear talk of a special 8x10 glossy programme insert in honour of all my signage contributions...

including Fergus as Mad Eye Moody and Effie as Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. Eff made her glasses and Ferg's eye. I stuck tape on my Indians jersey. Crafty!

A birthday(s) Celebration

The White Rockians came over this weekend so we made an impromptu birthday celebration out of it. Erich and Effie were born on the same day but don't tell Erich they're birthday twins - they are two years apart!

Saturday night cosmic bowling:

Joined by the Duncanites for a sunny Sunday - perfect for plane flying off the bluff, bocce and lounging:
