araisinposterLast weekend my wife, friends and I went to see “A Raisin In The Sun” at the DeSoto Corner Theatre.  We also went last year and it was just as good this time, if not even better.  I tell you, I don’t know how the cast can do a performance like that night after night.  The show is yet another gem by the African American Repertory Theater.  If you recall not long ago I put a post on another play they did called, “A Soldier’s Story.”  Man, these guys & gals are GOOD!

The play stars an incredible Irma P. Hall, Vince McGill, & Regina Washington as well as some other very, very gifted actors.  I truly believe that kids of all ages should see this play as well as anyone interested in watching a moving performance filled with character growth and a peek into the American past.  Just when you were about to give up on the main character, he does a 180 and you really do not see it coming.

Thank you to the cast of “A Raisin In The Sun.”  You are all absolutely awesome!  Thank you.  The show dates are through April 12 on Friday, Saturday, and Sundays.  The DeSoto Corner Theater is located at 211 E. Pleasant Run – Desoto, TX  75115.  Do not miss out on this incredible performance.  You will not be sorry.

Peace and gratitude,


Tonight my wife and I went to see A Soldier’s Play.  We were looking forward to seeing Vince McGill play Captain Richard Davenport because Vince is just AWESOME in every play we have seen him in.  You can see instantly that he has “BIG TIME” written all over his name.  These blog posts might end up being worth a fortune someday!  Normally I just talk about Vince but not this time.  There were 12 actors, and I can honestly say each of them gave memorable, incredible performances!  You were given a glimpse of each of the characters’ past and it really opened my eyes to how fathers can influence their children.  However, not everyone uses it as an excuse to do something that is simply wrong.  I believe that every high school child should be required to see this play.  Wow!  What a powerful performance.

The play, as it is written, can get a little confusing at times because of the flashbacks and flashbacks within flashbacks but somehow they pulled it off to perfection!  I was never confused and I was completely into it from the first to the last scene.  The acting was so strong that I am sure all of these guys will be leads in future plays wherever they choose.  Great, great job!  You all nailed it!

If you live in the DFW area, take the time to go to this play.  There are only 4 performances left so do yourself a favor and go see it.  The DeSoto Corner Theater is located at 211 E. Pleasant Run, DeSoto, TX  75115.  Conveniently located only 15 minutes from downtown Dallas.  You can purchase tickets online at http://www.aareptheater.com/ or at the box office. 

Peace and gratitude,


Hello everyone.  This morning there were some powerful storms that came through the Dallas Metroplex.  I was looking out my window after the heavy stuff was over and saw two kids playing in the rain.  They had a little puddle that they just could not help playing in.  One rode his three-wheeler while the other one pushed a big dump truck back and forth through the water.

This reminded me that I used to do the same thing when I was growing up.  After each heavy rain, I would immediately go outside and play.  I loved to build boats and “launch” them down mini river that was actually a ditch.  Boy, that sure was a fun time.

I think we all can learn something from this.  Sometimes we need to just have fun.  Forget about all of our worries and just do something fun.  Because of this, I set up a golf outing for later this week.  This boys sure taught me something today.  Thank you!
