Diamond Jubilee Historical Vignette

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to perform at our stake Relief Society Activity.  Shout out to Melissa for inviting me to be in it/being the best musical director ever.
This was a really neat experience that allowed me to learn more about the history of the Pasadena Stake.  It seems like Pasadenans...Pasadenians?  Pasadena-ers?  Pasadena-ites???  Are really proud of the heritage of this stake.  I guess you can be when Howard W. Hunter is among the stake president alum.  (Oh yeah, Mormon name dropping.  We just entered a whole new dimension of nerd.)
It was also really nice to get to know some of the other sisters in the stake and my ward a little better.  Plus it meant Melissa and I got to hang out a lot, and who doesn't like spending time with Melissa??

Here are some pictures thtat Jenny O'Neil took of us rehearsing and performing.


Our buddy, Shakespeare.



P.S. This song we're singing is from the first musical I was ever in.




We could be on Broadway!!


Plastic Grapes...you just had to be there.  (And by there I mean the 70's)

Shakin' my tail feather.


This was just too good not to share.

Oh, how we loved those plastic grapes!! We made them in Relief Society and gave them to everyone we knew. Some people outside the church thought they were some kind of Mormon insignia!
