The Money in Uncle George’s Suitcase

My niece, Cassidy, took me and her mother to Dinner Theater last Saturday night.

Girl’s Night Out!

And we all needed it.

Cassidy tried to go with her husband the weekend before, but he didn’t like it, and they ended up leaving before it was over . . .

Katy’s husband had accidentally set fire to the back pasture at their place . . .

And My Cowboy had spent half the week in the hospital.

We were ready for some fun!

The event was held at the Catholic School in a town about 25 miles away. We got there early so we could stand in line for good seats, and we did get good seats. Which is extra good, or I wouldn’t have been able to see a thing!

As folks piled in, what I found funny is that almost every group was carrying a cooler packed with alcohol. They didn’t serve it at the dinner, but evidently, you were free to bring as much of your own as you wished, and boy, did folks have coolers!

They also had a drawing, and you could buy chances at winning the big prize. I think Cassidy must have lost her ticket, cos she’s rummaging.

None of the three of us won the prize.

They served us a wonderful dinner of pork chops, cheesy taters, and sweet ‘n’ sour green beans, with hot rolls, preceded by a yummy salad, and followed by a yummy dessert.

After eating enough to nearly be comatose, there was a brief intermission before the play began. Some of the men gathered in a gaggle at the back of the room, evidently needing to get up and move around after that feed.

Everything was decorated like a country cabin, one that’s inhabited by someone who loves to hunt and fish. That would be Uncle George.

The play was called “The Money in Uncle George’s Suitcase”, written by Pat Cook. With only 8 cast members, one set, and lots of good laughs, it was completely delightful. The time passed without us even realizing it.

As we were all lined up and leaving the auditorium when it was over, someone knocked over an entire table of glasses, bottles, and dishes. We could hear it rattling and bouncing and shattering all over, and it seemed to go on forever, but probably didn’t seem as interminable to us as it did to the person who did it! When it finally ended, everyone clapped and cheered!

And I came home with these things in my pocket:

It was a good Girl’s Night Out. I’m suggesting to my niece and my sister that we do it again soon.

  1. What is that think that looks like a worm in that last photo?

    Sounds like a really fun night. I’m sure the coolers helped get (and keep) some of the guys there. LOL.

  2. Yep, sounds like y’all need to do that again. Tell the men that fires and hospitals are off limits.

  3. Oh my goodness… When my daughter was a senior in High school ..the Senior drama class..( very small school ) put on that play for their Dinner theater.. Such fun.. I got to help out with the rehearsals… costumes. My main job was to guard the door to the girls dressing room. LOL during costume changes… LOL pesky little boys…LOL I should have let the girls beat them up….LOL

    Such..fun.. Thank you for giving me a trip down memory lane.

  4. Sounds like a fun, entertaining evening. And the play was good, too.
