Two Short Entries

Thursday, July 11: Hudson, MA-4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
"Do You Want To Come To My House?"- Little Girl At Intermission

Tuesday night the harness inside the big mouth prop broke, and today Fridman was nice enough to weld it for us.
Thank you, Fridman!

Ryan had a lot of family visiting this evening-his parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins!

Thank you, Patricia, for the photos.

Ryan, Carolyn, and Becky's friends and family members made up the majority of the audience at the second show.
We got to see Bob Lessard at the first performance; it was probably the last time we'll see him before we leave New England. 
Take care, Bob. Hopefully one day Ryan, Peter, and I will get real jobs!

Friday, July 12: Palmer, MA-4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
"Hey, Clown! Boop Boop!"- Man With A Great Big Bushy Beard 
Miles: 54
Lot: Laviolette Park

During the first carpenter gag the bungee extension cord attached to the saw broke once again. Since that has been an almost regular occurrence over the past couple of months, Ryan and I went ahead and put in an entirely new length of bungee.
We bought 100 ft. of bungee cord at the beginning of the season, so no need to be stingy with it!

We had a lot of people complimenting us during the second Intermission, which always makes us feel good. One teenage girl loved the Ricola bit that Ryan does during the trombone act, and a group of three ladies came over to tell us they came back to the show this year to see us. Whoo hoo!

Ricola fans

Even though the audience was enjoying the second carpenter gag tonight, there was one woman in the front row that just looked miserable. I tried my hardest to get her to crack a smile, but she wouldn't budge.
I finally gave up on her and concentrated on the people having a good time.

Finally in the mouth chase she lost her stony demeanor and actually guffawed. Sometimes the smallest victories are the sweetest!
