Waxing Nostalgic Before Thanksgiving

I am thankful that I no longer think this is an appropriate outfit to go partying in on a Friday night--or any other. I am also thankful for all of you that stumbled up or down the Goat Path with me, before there were steps.  (Yes, it is a nightgown--and 1985, so that makes it OK.)

I am thankful that I was doing lights on 'You Know I Can't Hear You When the Water is Running' and avoided the bad wigs that Denise & Chris were subjected to, and hope that Denise is thankful that she got to connect Eric's dots.

I am thankful that I got to learn Greek from some real fraternity boys.

I am thankful that we got to work with the professional dance troupe, Dance Teller for Amadeus.

I am thankful that Scott is part of my life.
I am thankful that on a warm summer day, I got to see the Monkees perform in New Jersey with a bunch of people who really appreciated the genius behind the music.

I am thankful that I do not remember throwing up in Scott's van Vera, on the way back from my first trip to the wall.
I am thankful that I got to spend so much time in this rundown, nearly rat infested office that I and the lot of you called home.  I am also thankful for Constance for sending the photo to me.
I am so thankful for the magical night Chris & I stole trays from the Kriner Diner to sled on.  I remember night and new snow.  Snowball fights with everyone and stumbling to Doug & Rabbits for hot cocoa.  

I am thankful that Chris gave me a stack of photos to post, so I can feel a part of those trips that I missed.

If you look carefully, you can see the real reason Lisa's shirt was so shiny is because it was plugged in. Love these.

Yea!!! Great pics. Oh, the green van, the sweet smell of gas and vomit.
I'm very grateful to be a Masquer! It was such a crucial time in my life and I feel very fortunate to have been surrounded by smart, creative, kind people who knew how to laugh.

Here's a test to tell who's a true Monkees fan, and who was just on the bandwagon.
Identify what the following is from:
"Hey hey we are the Monkees
You know we like to please
A manufactured image
with no philosophies"
No using Wikipedia - that's cheating and you will receive a zero.
