Had a great day yesterday. Jim brought home three more walleye. Slowly getting our freezer filled up. Got our hair cut so we don’t look so much like shaggy dogs.
Stopped and visited with more friends. Hadn’t seen Kathy and Walt in probably 20 years. I worked with Kathy at this building when I worked for the IRS in Helena.
Over 200 Malamutes were rescued from a gentleman who had become a hoarder and they are currently being housed at a defunct nursery which just happens to be right across the road from Kathy and Walt’s home. (forgot to get my camera out) Needless to say, you cannot sit out and visit because the noise level is incredible. I feel real sorry for all those dogs and hopefully the courts will get the guy to release them so they can be adopted.
Went out to dinner with my sister and her hubby at a great little Mexican restaurant.

After dinner, the four of us went to the Grand Street Theater to see the musical Ragtime. Built in 1901 as a Unitarian Church, it became the public library in 1933 and then the Grand Street Theater in 1976.
Beautiful interior of the theater.
I wasn’t sure what Ragtime was about and I expected maybe a lot of Scott Joplin. Wrong. It’s a story of America in the early 20th century when Ragtime was popular. It’s the story of three groups of people: upper-class white suburbanites, African-Americans, and Eastern European Immigrants (Jews) and how their lives all become entwined during this very turbulent time.
Jim and I really enjoyed the show. An amazing cast.
