    • Merril, thank you for bringing a big smile to my face! πŸ™‚
      Sadly the entire parking lot was full of interesting and special activities celebrating 100 years of our local movie theater and luckily for the family, we were one of only twenty families attending!
      Yes, my oldest daughter saw the photograph and always was “my dress up girl” and she also, exclaimed: “Oh, Mom, my younger self wishes I could have seen her!”

    • This was my first time of seeing this tall of a woman on stilts and was amazed, too! At our county fair in September last year, there was a man with my two grandsons but not sure if he is part of this “troupe” of tall people!
      Thank you, Beth, for the sweet “dolls” compliment! Happy Fourth of July weekend to you and your adorable grandies (and adult family members)!

    • Joanne, I am on vacation!! So glad to have five work days and two weekends to relax, play “catch up” on blogging, spend time with my Mom, (I stay right in her senior apt) along with my brothers and sister in law. My oldest daughter with her two boys are at my brother and SIL’s home. We are going later, after breakfast, garage sale-ing! πŸ™‚
      Have a wonderful holiday weekend to you and your family! ❀

    • I am not sure if they were scared, Marissa. They may have a little bit of star struck astonishment on their faces! πŸ™‚ They truly loved her generous and kind treatment of them. We were shocked that this 100 years of the movie theater celebration wasn’t flooded with the City of Delaware community support. Cotton candy one dollar, later “E.T.” free with pop and popcorn! Trista, my DIL, and I each donated money at the concession stand inside the theatre. . .
      An amazing day with a special feeling of having much of it “to ourselves!” Possibly only twenty families here. . . More to come! πŸ™‚

      • Yeah, I think whenever my daughter takes a pic with anyone in costume she feels a little intimidated and/or starstruck. That’s probably a better word. I’m glad you had a good time and that it wasn’t too crowded.

    • Andrew, thanks for such a spectacular comment! I enjoy how you are spreading your wings with diverse words and writing genres. πŸ™‚
      I plan on having fun and special moments this week with my vacation up with my Mom! Cleveland is my “home” away from Delaware, since I grew up here. Hope you and Allie have plenty of magical memories “in the making.” ❀

      • Aw, thank you for your kind words. Cleveland??? You just won the basketball championship. Congrats, don’t know if you follow that. We will try to make some memories. Thanks. Be well.

    • Diana, it was a special weekend of 100 years since our Strand movie theatre opened. The night before, they laid marble stars in the cement with an elegant tuxedo and evening gowns, “affair.”
      These amazing tall people, balloon maker, guitarist and dancers, along with face painting were part of the daytime celebration. I have mentioned (finally away on vacation with my Mom, in her apt) to a few people, we were blessed with few visitors, but I was dismayed at the community not showing up! The whole day was exciting, full of activities and probably twenty families came. . . more to come! ❀
      My DIL and I each donated money once inside, free pop and popcorn with "E.T." 30 year anniversary presentation. Cotton candy was only a dollar. πŸ™‚

      • It sounds like great fun for the kids and adults alike. That is too bad that the community didn’t show. Perhaps the weekend will be busier πŸ™‚

  1. Well, you’ve certainly made my weekend wonderful – this is the first time in my life I’ve seen a woman on stilts and she is fabulous ❀

    • Ina, thank you for sharing this experience with my family. Only wish we could have had you join us, in reality! We would have had so much fun, watching balloon designs by a balloon artist, guitarist with dancers, face painting and more! The entire free day (except donations and cotton candy a dollar apiece) was to celebrate our local non-profit movie theatre of 100 years!
      Your interviews and dressy formal occasion with Croatian officials was so impressive, Ina. Hugs! ❀
