We had a great time. The night started out early with our son and fiancé stopping by early to have a bite to eat. This consisted of home made chicken noddle soup and steak sandwiches, and let’s not forget, wonderful pastries that the kids brought, from a bakery in Falmouth. Brownies, cheesecake, raspberry thingy and a chocolate chip cupcake-very nice.
So after we eat and caught up a bit, we head to the Monmouth playhouse located in Monmouth, me, about a 30 minute drive from the house. The theater has gone through a renovation and looks wonderful. I should say that the evening drive, the 3/4 moon and clouds, we could have been going to see the legend of sleepy hollow and it would have been apropos, but it was not the legend we were going to see, instead it was the hounds of Baskerville- a Sherlock Holmes mystery- an outstanding production! A wonderful cast, many of whom played multiple people and did it splendidly. simply put, go if you can, it will be well worth it.
We (my wife and I) have seen many plays / musicals, and for me, this ranks in the top 2 best I’ve seen.
We will be headed back here next weekend to see murder for 2, with a favorite couple and my brother and his lovely lady friend, Joanna. This will be 2 times in 2 weeks, and my first times back in 40 years, which I might add, has been way to long.

That’s it for now, but I will try to post something after this next weekends event
