Waiting, watching and swoon!

I wish I had this guy's energy! It was fun to watch him herding and directing people in front of The Fox Theatre in Atlanta, while I was waiting for friends to arrive to join me in watching a play.  He chatted me up at one point - his name badge says he is "Top Hat Bob."  A very nice man and lots of fun to watch.

The view to the left.  I love the old mosque-style design.  It's always fun to people watch, but I was happy to see friends' faces when they arrived.

And this is what we saw.  Swoon!  I adored it.  My late father was a Gershwin fan and I know every word to a lot of musical numbers (from hearing his records played).  My favorite:  "They Can't Take That Away From Me."  Here's a link to Fred and Ginger singing and dancing to it. 

The weekend is upon us!  I am glad to see it.  I hope you have a wonderful one, my friends!

I heard of Fox theater last time I was in Atlanta, but didn't have the time to see anything

Agreed that the musicals are the best entertainment. We attended a performance of "Singing in the Rain" locally a few months ago. We have the film version of "An American in Paris" and it's one of Grenville's favorites.

You had a great weekend. I had a great weekend. I attended a friend's wedding where the guests were more royally treated than the bride and groom. They bought us all overnight accommodations at the casino where the reception was held.
