On Friday some friends from Cassowary rang to invite me to join them for dinner on Friday night at the Julatten Tavern (yes, I'm becoming a regular and they now know me by name!) Once again it was a lovely night. I clicked with Di the moment I meet her at photo club and her husband is a real darling. I'm sure the four of us will enjoy lots more dinners next year.
Saturday was election day for us. We are one of the four shires across Queensland that is de-amalgamating. Last week I went to Mt. Molloy to hear the council candidates talk about the ideas for the future of the shire so I had a good idea where my votes were going.
Last night was the Julatten Theatre Group night of "One-Act" plays. What a great night it was and I really wish that I had the courage to get up in front of a group of people and act. Sadly that is not going to happen! Mount Molloy State School put on a fantastic supper with all food grown in and prepared from their Stephanie Alexander garden and kitchen. What a wonderful scheme that is. I had the privilege to photograph their delicious produce for a competition that they were entering. I will tell you about that in another post.
Back to the plays. The first play was "12 Angry Pigs"and it was a spoof of the award winning movie "12 angry Men". The difference being that the jury are pigs and the accused is the "Big Bad Wolf"
The last play was called "Sandra's Shadows". Sandra's plans for a dinner party are upset when her invited guests cancel. How the rest of the evening develops brings some interesting revelations when she is confronted by her inner-selves. the "Bitch", the"Slut" and the"Perfectionist".
