Phantom of the Opera

I ended up coming home from work sick today, victim of a 24-hour bug.

While I was crashing and burning in bed,I had Netflix on the phone and found the 25th Anniversary of the Phantom of the Opera, that was taped from the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Oh, those were the days.

Princess Diana of Wales, in photos with the cast opening night. Later, Sara, Duchess of York in New York in pictures with the New York original cast. The romantic story of Andrew Lloyd Webber and his wife and leading lady, Sarah Brightman. Who could forget Michael Crawford as the original Phantom.

I finally pulled myself up to finish things around the house and am moving a little gingerly, but the words and music of The Phantom of the Opera really soothed the soul, and made 24-malady a little more palatable.

Dodging the bullet…

…for a day.

Or at least three-quarters of a day.

Looking at the television, and seeing snow in Philadelphia, New York and other spots, when it came time for me to walk the girls in the rain, I was a happy girl. I even managed to get over 18,000 steps in today on my Fit Bit zip.

Because? Yes, I know “it’s coming.”The barometric pressure is coming down.The girls have been walked to the point of exhaustion.I’m beat too. Worrying about if we are going to lose power when the wet snow brings wires down.Do we have candles and flashlights?The house has everything and all we have to do is wait.

Stay safe,friends,especially if in the snow zone.
