For Theatre L’Homme Dieu and my attendance at a Cardinal boys hockey game . . .
Theatre L’Homme Dieu 2018 Season Announcement Party at The Garden Bar on 6th (photo courtesy of Nicole Mulder)
[Another beautiful December morning . . . ]
[The Super, always first to a party, holds her A list position . . . ]
[Then the Alexandria Area High School Carolers arrived . . . ]
[Always a season’s joy . . . ]
And so, let’s hear from the Carolers . . .
[The theatre’s executive director, Nicole Mulder, checks a selfie . . . ]
[“Stuffed like a can of sardines” came to mind . . . ]
[I gathered you here today because . . . ]
[Nicole and theatre board president, Fred Bursch, prepare for opening remarks, while Erik Schultz tickles his strings in the background . . . ]
[Party on . . . ]
[And now, anouncing the new season . . . ]
[Good ones coming, seeking a couple more!]
[And the Super adds hers . . . ]
[My applogies to Nicole and Fred . . . ]
Later that evening . . .
[It was a doubleheader hockey night – the girls won their game first. This would be my first look at the boys team, also expecting a superior season . . . ]
[But as you can see above, the result was obvious early. Some of the “boys on the rail” left then, a non-competitive game, and had probably seen a good part of the girls’ game.]
[I believe this was a score by Andrew Revering (2), sophomore defenseman, in the 2nd period. I was sitting with his parents then, who also happen to be the parents of last year’s all-state tournament player, McKenzie, now in her freshman scholarship year at UMD.]
[The final score was 12 – 2.]
[And the very next day, the Boys of ’65 visited Melby Outpost for our monthly lunch . . . ]
[And Uncle Mo enjoying the seasonal weather in Washington, D. C. (I believe sister Gretch employing her first time ever smart phone).]
