Almost Heaven - West Virginia

We're in our last day of a whirlwind weekend visit with Jason and Jaime at their new home in Lewisburg, WV. We rolled in late Friday night, and spent all day yesterday walking the streets of Lewisburg, looking at shops and art galleries, enjoying snacks of every kind, and then going to see the play "Souvenir", about the singing career (?) of Florence Foster Jenkins in the 30s-40s. Jason had done the set design, and Jaime was the stage manager (both firsts for them at their theatre.) It was a very funny 2-person play about Jenkins (who thought she could sing, but couldn't), and her piano accompanist, Cosme, who reluctantly (at first, but then willingly) accompanied her during her rise to fame. They have one more weekend performance of Souvenir, then they have three days to strike the set and get ready for "To Kill a Mockingbird".

We're off to church with Jason and Jaime in a little while, then lunch at the Irish Pub, then it will be time to head back to NC this afternoon.
