For the birds, Les Miserales and Civil Rights in Greenville

Bob saw this idea in one of his magazines so we tried it and it works. The idea is you fill the cap with water, this is a cap from a gatoraide bottle, and the ants won’t crawl over it and into your bird feeder. Works like a charm.

Sunday, yesterday, we went to the Upcountry History Museum and saw the exhibit “Protests, Prays and Progress”,  Greenville’s   Civil Rights Movement.   Not a pretty picture but not nearly as bad as some other areas in the South.   Pretty much peaceful protests but plenty of arrests.   Wish I could say it is all behind us but it’s not.   Being raised in the north gave us quite another picture of civil rights, or lack of rights.

They also had a small exhibit on the writing of the Star Spangled Banner music and the war of 1812, which I admit I don’t know about.

After that next door to see Greenville Little Theater LES MISERABLESBob and I were both kind of reluctant to see it but we had season tickets.  We saw it years ago in MN and loved it and not too long ago tried to watch the new movie and after three tries I gave up.   I just couldn’t get into it.

I’m so glad we went.   It was wonderful.   Who knew little Greenville has such talent!  I had forgotten what a powerful story it is, on many levels.

Had my first Chinese cooking class, stir fry tofu and fried rice.   Pretty good.

We drove to New Orleans for a week of vacation a couple weeks ago so will tell you all about that great trip soon.   What a city!   Nice to visit but I sure wouldn’t want to live there.
