E Friday - Memories

In following the tradition of Clare we return again to E Friday, where I post photos of my darling granddaughter E, because VG really likes to look at these pics.

OK, no photos today but a video treat. Several weeks ago the traveling version of the musical Cats hit Portland, and E was taken to see it. She really liked it all, and it is now her absolute favorite musical ever, which is not really hard to believe since it’s the only musical she has seen. Since then she has been dancing around the house singing the songs. Her mom had an old cassette tape of the show from back when we took her to see it and it became her absolute favorite musical ever (also being the only one she had seen), but being a rather old tape it didn’t last too long. So when B was up in Portland for E’s fifth birthday last week she took along a CD of the show so that E would have the songs to listen to again, along with a DVD of the New York version, which had scenes and songs the traveling version did not. She took a lot of pictures and some videos, one of which is here:

I really like the dramatic pause at the beginning, the turn, then the stage cue for the starting line.

Lovely, very tuneful.

Very sorry to hear about all the grief with your hand btw - hope its all better soon and doesn't prove too costly. Coming from a country with a long established National Health Service, which is pretty good and efficient despite the bad press it gets, what you've had to contend with seems utterly ridiculous.

What a natural! She's wonderful! And the fact she remembered the words is pretty good!

Joe, you might want to delete the comment before this one, it's a link to a porn site!

I hope your finger is doing better.

Too cute with E!

She's lovely! Cats was a huge hit at our house for some time too.
