I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Jake's Women
Friday, Saturday and Sunday Through October 9

This wildly comic and moving play features Jake’s flashbacks about the women in his life – that are occasionally interrupted by the actual women! Jake's women include a revered first wife, Julie, who died years earlier in a tragic accident; his daughter, Molly, who is recalled as a child but is now a young woman; his boisterous and bossy sister, Karen; an opinionated analyst, Edith; his current wife, Maggie, who is contemplating her future with, or possibly without, Jake; and the newest arrival, Sheila, a woman who just may be part of Jake's future.
