My Dream

This mooring right before I woke up, I had such a cool dream.

In this dream I sat up in bed and turned on the TV and naturally not being able to find anything to watch I started flipping through the channels. Finally, I stopped and watched what was on and even though it looked different I recognized it. IT WAS PINWHEEL!!!

Now as I said it looked different but somehow, I just knew it was Pinwheel; I’m not sure if it was the 1977 version or a completely updated show but it was definitely Pinwheel and I'm pretty sure that  Aurelia was in the part I saw. Actually I'm very sure otherwise how would I have known it was Pinwheel. 

So anyway, in the dream I grabbed the phone and called my Mother and said, “Put it on 285 and tell me what you see.” So, she turned on her TV and went to that channel and said okay this is what I see, and it was the same picture I was seeing and I told her that it was Pinwheel. Then I woke up, but I wanted to blog this dream so that I wouldn’t forget it and I thought you guys might think it was pretty cool too.

Do Not Pass Go

It is with the deepest of sorrows, and many tears, that I bring you this news.

As you all know I filled out a grant application with the Economic Development Corporation (EDC) to try to gain funding for our Nickelodeon Fan Convention but last week I received a letter telling me that my application was rejected. The letter reads as follows:

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

June 21, 2019

Dear Peggy:

The Altus/Southwest Area Economic Development Corporation Tourism Committee met on June 5, 2019 to review the Fiscal Year 2019-2020 Tourism Requests. Your request for the Nickelodeon Fan Convention (Nick Fan Con) was discussed and considered however there was now enough information to support the event and the details have not been fully worked out.

The committee agree they would have considered it further had the event been a little more organized and if you had acquired addition al outside funding. It certainly looks to be an interesting program and perhaps the event can still be realized should you obtain further funding and backing for your budget.

If you can work out the necessary details needed, perhaps the committee can reconsider another request at a later date for at least partial funding of the event. We appreciate the work you put into this project and your efforts to bring this event to our community. Please stay in contact should you firm up the details of your program.

Linda Walker, Executive Assistant

So, there you have it. I’m so, so sorry everyone, I feel like I’ve let all of you down and there’s nothing I can do to make it better. I’m practically home bound these days because of my arthritis, and I don’t have any contacts who can help me sponsor this, I just don’t now what to do. ☹ But ya know, at the very least they could have approved the Pinwheel Live but they didn’t even make that an option. And frankly, by the questions they asked me I don’t think they were convinced that these stars, Marty Schiff, Craig & Olga Marin and George James, were willing to come all the way down here to Altus just to do this convention. Anyway, please forgive me for getting your hopes up again, I really did try. ☹

If you’d like to call the EDC and complain please feel free.

Classic Nick Thursday – Summer of Music

Hey Guys,

Summer is almost (officially) here and what better way to spend it than enjoying some really great music? Tune into my blog on Saturdays this summer to hear a collection of music with a weekly theme. In no particular order here are the collections I have planned.

Slumber Party – Dreams and Sleep Theme (already posted)
Matters Of The Heart – Songs With Heart In The Title
Patriotic Tribute
About A Wedding – Videos with a Wedding Theme or Wedding Dresses
Summer Vacation
Dance Songs
Let’s Go To The Movies
School Days
The Cosmos – Spacy Type Songs or Videos
Christian Music
Animal Songs
Classic Country Rocks
The Cockroaches VS The Wiggles – Did you know that two of the Wiggles, Anthony and Jeff, were members of an 80’s rock band called The Cockroaches? Well, several of the songs the Wiggles sing used were originally sung by The Cockroaches! I’ll post the originals and the Wiggly versions for you to compare.

So there ya go, a whole summer of fun music for you to enjoy. If I planned that right, then these should take me to about September and then in the fall I’ll be added two new features to my weekly posts. I don’t have all of the days worked out, but the two new features are:

Mystery Mondays
In the ‘80’s Nickelodeon aired The Third Eye, but since I’m not into the paranormal my version will be Mystery Mondays where I will post mystery movies and televisions shows as well as some B Science Fiction themed films.

Lights, Camera, Action! – Movie Making Tips for Beginners & Pros
Playing off the original Standby…Lights! Camera! Action! theme this weekly series will help both beginners and pros with costumes, prop making and more. I’m not sure when I will be posting this series yet so if you have any ideas for me please let me know.

Everyone have a wonderful summer; stay safe and I hope you enjoy this Summer of Music!
