Bingo and Gloria Fiona

Happy Birthday, Canada! A 157 years old today. There are lots of parades going on in celebration and tons of poutine, perogies, and beer to be consumed – enjoy my beloved ‘Old Country.’

The second bingo in Act2PV history took place last Saturday. From start to finish, all we did was laugh between and during games. Everybody was heckled at some point, and the Xocodiva chocolate prizes flew off the piano first. Sharon Gerber Scherer is doing her best to single-handedly build the elevator for Act2 all by herself. Come and see next weekend if she can continue her winning streak(s)! Sharon’s sourdough bread and Marsha Ward Ross’s cookies would be fabulous bingo prizes, don’t you think? Just a (strong!) suggestion!

Jan Dorland and I quickly walked down to Nacho Daddy to catch the end of Gloria Fiona’s last show of the season. That venue will enjoy taking the summer off, leaving Act2 and La Catrina Cantina as Vallarta’s major entertainment meccas until the fall.

Gloria was in fine form with excellent pianist Isabel Muleta and guitarist Jacob Ordoñez. These two musicians will be part of Gloria’s Adele Tribute at the enormous Teatro Vallarta, with Jacob as Musical Director. The dance troupe Fusion 91, wove their interactive magic throughout the crowd, and their final dance was mesmerizing, with lengths of tiny lights intertwining the dancers – fascinating to watch.

Today is getting clearer and clearer as the morning progresses; I all of a sudden can’t wait to get out in the sunshine and walk down to the Malecon along its length to McDonald’s, hang a right, hit the gym for 20 minutes or so and walk home, buy some veggies on the way and see what else this glorious day will bring.
