“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” To this day, especially in times of “disaster,” I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.” -Fred Rogers

Pammy and I went to Tres Rebecas today to look over the space again, taking notes as to what we wanted it to look like. Our goal is to make it a multi-purpose space where we'd have art exhibits, teach classes
and do puppet shows.
We also want to do theatrical readings there. Lots of ideas. We hadn't given any thoughts to New Years resolutions except to try new things. Nothing specific. This space will allow us to try many things, all related to the arts. It's going to be a good thing for us. It's a self-administered shot in the arm for us. And long overdue.
The photo on the right is the first floor of their their store full of lots of fun, colorful goodies.
Our space is located on the second floor which we'll share it with several other artists. Follow us upstairs please.
It's nice space where we'll have plenty of room to do so much even though the photo (left) doesn't give that impression. We're looking forward to setting it up for use pretty soon.

I meant to post last night but I ran out of steam. So here goes! We had a good dinner of homemade burgers and fries followed by our Saturday Night lineup of fun! Started with Batman. The last few weeks of the series had Batgirl, which, if I'm not mistaken was the last season of the series. Anyway, last night's episode didn't include Batgirl in the credits and the directing style of the show was noticeably different from season three. After looking up some info on Wikipedia I found out it was the first season pilot. Very cool! Frank Gorshin starred as the guest villain in his first appearance as the Riddler. I really think he made an outstanding Riddler. I liked Jim Carrey's version but Frank Gorshin set the standard.
After that we watched Lost in Space and Star Trek and finished the evening with Svengoolie who was featuring the classic 1950's giant monster classic:"Tarantula". As always, he had plenty of trivia for us to enjoy. It had a cast of familiar faces but of special note, making a brief appearance at the end of the film as fighter pilot, was a very young Clint Eastwood. Fun night. Can't wait for next weekend!
