A golden oldie of musical theater!

Slice of Life is sponsored every Tuesday by Stacey and Ruth from Two Writing Teachers.  For the month of March, I've joined the challenge to post a slice of life daily. 

 From the moment the curtain went up and the overture began, I suppressed the desire to sing along with the actors.  It was one of the golden oldies of musical theater and although I’ve seen it many times, I couldn’t resist purchasing tickets for a delightful evening with  my husband, daughter, and son-in-law .  Nearing the end of the play, my daughter nudged me and said, “ There’s your song, Mom.” 
Was it “Some Enchanted Evening” from South Pacific?
Was it “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music?
Was it “Getting to Know You” from the King and I?
Nope, it was “Oklahoma”!  
And while this Oklahoma gal has now lived away from my home state for almost half my life, I'm always ready for a visit (except in the summer).  I love the beautiful Northwest, but home will always be where the wind comes sweeping down the plain.  So  spring break you’ll find me heading for Oklahoma where there’s plenty of heart and plenty of hope.


  1. My daughter and I also love and attend theater together. I sang my way through your list of songs to get to "your song" and was glad to find it wasn't the finale from Wicked. :)

  2. It was such a fun trip! Thanks for a great weekend mom! :)
