Legally Blonde at Prior Lake High School


Legally Blonde at Prior Lake High School
Todd Swank's Diary Entry for November 17, 2013


On Friday night, we went to see the Prior Lake High School Musical, Legally Blonde, starring the daughter of some friends of ours named Dana Bunker.  She played Elle Woods and did a darn fine job at it as she sang and danced her way through law school.


The high school students did a great job and the play stayed pretty true to the movie.


Except there was a lot more singing and dancing.  Which I guess are kind of important elements to have in a musical.


We ended up knowing a lot of the performers including our former next door neighbor, Greg.  I never knew he was such a song and dance man else I would have asked him to entertain me a lot more when he lived here.


It was a great play and it was made even greater when a couple of scene stealers strolled onto the stage.  I still don't know who received more cheers between the pup and the UPS Guy, but they were both pretty popular with the young ladies in the auditorium.  Lucky dogs.


On Saturday morning, we woke up bright and early to go help the Boy Scouts set-up the Christmas tree lot.  It's hard to believe it's already Christmas Tree season again, but that calendar doesn't lie.  


The boys had fun working and hanging out with their friends.  Emphasis on the latter.


Life has been pretty mellow around the Swank house.  So mellow in fact that for the first time since I can remember, I skipped doing a blog update last weekend.  I just didn't have anything to post.  Except for this picture of playing cards with some old friends of mine from Nor-Tech last Friday night.  I'm sure these guys would have been devastated if I didn't mention them on my website, so here it goes even though I'm a week late.  I hope they will forgive me.


Sunny doesn't mind that it's so gloomy outside.  He still wants me to throw him the dang ball.  At least the lake isn't frozen yet.


On Sunday, we took him to the dog park instead so he could go steal some other dog's ball instead.  It's a lot easier on my throwing arm that way.
