[Ed. note: my apologies to Chris, who had this post ready to go before the holiday, but fell victim to our technical difficulties.]
We live—I don't know how but we are still part of the
living! We never surrendered, and Liz and I are still talking to one
This is the wildest part of the adventure, and sadly, there has
been no time to sit down and jot a few thoughts and invite you into our
wacky world. Had been involved with a few meetings/events in
Boston, then came back last Friday to find out that our broadband is
down. I am writing this from the library.
I just came back from the
laundromat after Tom helped, er, actually stripped the dining room table,
helped to cover the chairs. Yeah, the money pit is alive and
well. Deborah [Hood, producer] and Isa [Markevitz, Production Coordinator] have been great trying to help out on that
end. I have only caught 2.5 episodes of the show—a lot of folks kid
about being a movie star and I just tell them that I have the same
agent as Lassie…yuk yuk!
I feel like Ray Liotta in Goodfellas, when he has 1,000 things

No poetry, no prose, but one big THANK YOU on this aptly named holiday, Thanksgiving!
Seriously, no one could fully describe the man hours, the hard
work and added touches of so many artisans, craftsmen and excellent
workers—UNBELIEVABLE! There is no alpha and omega, no end to it
all—the laughter, the tears… Yes, there have been tears, but out of
appreciation not out of frustration. The dust, the dust—did i say dust?—the empty water
bottles, the blog, the ACTION! calls. Are we even on the blog radar?
And of course to our readers…(Isn't that what I am supposed to say?) No, really, the feedback has been great and hopefully when the dust—did i say dust?—settles, I shall be encouraged to do more writing, as it
has been quite cathartic and alot of FUN!!!
So, everyone: one HUGE THANKS!!!!!! Appreciate and enjoy the day.
