Preshow

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of seeing the premier of Frozen The Broadway Musical in Denver, before it even hits Broadway. My son and my great-niece came along and we really enjoyed the show. The music was wonderful, the set versatile and the northern lights were beautiful. The ultimate beaded curtain representing the frozen ice-palace made me want one! I was wrapped up in the characters and story, the stage disappearing as I was pulled into the land of Norway.

We all wished the soundtrack had been available so we could sing along on the way home,

but we settled for The Lion King and belted that out instead..”This is the morning report…” Now, I am surprised to find that tomorrow is September 1st! How did that happen? We’ll soon be on our way to the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion in Rollag, Minnesota.

It all started in 1940 with a little idea sparked from the soul of some local Threshermen over supper. The Nelson boys fired up the old Garr-Scott engine to thresh with steam again for old time sake with family & friends. The event continued once a year until 1954, when Western Minnesota Steam Thresher’s Reunion

met formally for the first time and invited the public. Today the show has grown to include hundreds of demonstrations and exhibits spread over 210 beautiful acres” (Rollag.com).

We’re looking forward to traveling some new roads, seeing some new country, and enjoying Labor Day Weekend. Enjoy yours too!
