Been There, Done That

My Father's retirement party was tonight (Sunday).

Tom Arthur's been teaching at James Madison University for 34 years and this drawing includes every play he directed while he's been there. It also happens to be a list of the plays that I grew up with; watching him direct these plays or talking with him about them while he was directing them or talking to him about them after he directed them has been my primary theatre training for the last . . . well . . . 34 years.

He's gonna read and travel and watch all the DVDs I've given him for Christmas's and birthdays over the years.

Uhm, he's also gonna learn how to use the DVD player. And switch the signal from "satelite" to "line" on the TV.
