Thanks to for sending me the teeshirt and pen. I know the photo is goofy, but that's just me. I have grown out my hair and beard for a production of Fiddler on the Roof. Unfortunately, I am having some health issues, and my ability to continue in my role is iffy. Therefore, the director and I have decided that it's best I bow out, and let a healthier actor take my place. Ah, well. At least I have to keep me happy. 🙂

So sorry to hear of your health issues. Hope you can get back to feeling better soon. Congrats on the shirt and pen!!!

Thank you. I am following the doctor's orders. Today I feel pretty bad, but we'll see if it gets better. 🙂

@BestWithoutGods Sending you a hug, they seem to help when you feel bad. Hope things improve for you soon.

@Redheadedgammy Many thanks. 🙂


Well done. You don't look especially goofy, or have I been on this site too long ?


I hope your health improves . . .

I cannot easily recall how oft I have used this to illustrate to a fundamentalist that tradition does not equal good by default.

I agree. Traditions based on mythology should be replaced by knowledge based on science. 🙂


Like the shirt.


Too bad with the play. Actually it was that production by a local theater group that got us to this island. We saw the tremendous effort and talent here and wanted to be a part of it. Now I get (have) to help with lighting and stage set-up for our annual plays. Be careful what you wish for.
Here are some shots from that play: []

I’ve been in similar situations due to a spouse or child - wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything🙂


Sorry that you're feeling under the weather.
Rest up and get well soon.
Love the funny photo!

Thanks! Best to you, too. 🙂


Congratulations! I'm getting closer but still so far.

Keep after it!
Looking forward to seeing you in a blue t-shirt🙂


You look like you have gone native mate! 🙂 Get well soon, look forward to your posts mate!


Your photo isn't goofy, it's cute!


Very nice, & mine is the purple as well....the best!


Awww.. sorry to hear about having to drop the show. Hope your health improves.

Thank you! 🙂


All the best to you. I thought you were red green until blew up your picture.

Thank you. 🙂


May the shiniest of Aliens give you their bright strength to lean on. hugs Kathy


Mazal tov!




Sorry to hear that health issues meant that you could not continue in the show. Which character were you going to play? I was taken to a production of it when I was about 5 had nightmares for weeks as the only thing I remembered was the ghost of the wife during the wedding scene. Have watched the movie a few times since (mainly with my parents) Loved the music from it.

Yes. It's a great show with great music and a great story. I was just one of the villagers, Yussel the hat maker. It's a minor role, but as a villager, I was in quite a few of the musical numbers. It was fun while it lasted. I'll always have the memory of playing Tevye in high school. 🙂


How did it come? Was it regular post?

Yes. It came in my mailbox. 🙂

@BestWithoutGods Thank you for your reply.
