The Dwyer family of Park City, UT. Never heard of them? Let me tell you a thing or two. Their youngest son, John, was a Winkie Guard and Citizen of Oz with Vic when we did the Wizard of Oz three years ago (or was it four)? Yes, in case you have forgotten, Vic was a WINKIE and also got to wear green tights as a Citizen of Oz. His specialty? Polishing the Tin Man. NEVER think that you are out of teasing material with Vic.
But I digress.
John Dwyer and I also performed together in Suessical (the Musical!). Kristine, the mother, has always been so nice to me. To this day she still calls me Glinda. John and I are now in our third production together-Peter Pan. He is a Lost Boy, and you all know who I am. This is actually quite humorous since he is 6 foot 3 and I'm almost 5'2". It's fun to be able to push him around, I'll admit. So here's where the Thanks comes in. Get ready...wait for it...THEY GAVE ME A CAR. HELLO! I repeat: They gave me a car. A 2000 Toyota Rav4. Cute as a button. I wouldn't care if it was a Buick. Oh, wait, maybe I would care. The point is..they gave me a Peter Pan car. It is mine to use when and however I like until the show is over. Can you believe it? I've been on time to every rehearsal, I've gotten to go grocery shopping during the day and run errands and even visit friends. Some of you may be going into shock at this point because you are realizing that I have been a stay-at-home mom for almost a year and a half now and haven't had a car. It's true. I cannot tell a lie. We were this close (picture it), to buying a new car for me when the Dwyer's offered to loan me theirs for the next few months. The timing is perfect because it gives us time to save up a little more cash (and sell the CJ-5...any takers?) before making our new purchase. To my knowledge, the Dwyer's don't read my blog (but nor do my favorite hand me down clothes or other items for which I am grateful...) but I want to thank you for your generosity and kindness. What a blessing! Vroom, vroom!
