South Pacific, Houston

The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts is a cavernous, but beautiful and highly functional venue. It's a strange sensation to hear your voice so loudly from so far away (because of the amplification): sometimes it seems like it's louder than my voice in front of my own face! The audiences here are harder to read, due to the distance to the back wall, but they have been extremely receptive and appreciative. We have such a good time when they have a good time!

San Antonio

Too bad we were only there for a week! The Riverwalk was just great. The people are really friendly. The audiences were wonderful. Now it's on to Houston.

South Pacific Seattle

We had a terrific time in Seattle. What a tremendous place! No wonder half of California has moved there. It's gorgeous, the food is exceptional, the climate, though rainy, is mild, it's just a very civilized place to live. My wonderful cousin and her family live on this idyllic lake just 15 minutes north of the city, and we watched a bald eagle on a floating log eating something for about 40 minutes! Another cousin lives in Port Townsend, right at the inlet of the Puget Sound, and that's another breathtaking place. Can't wait to go back!
