Smiling, we remember

Stars of Vaudeville

This mural is in downtown Salem, Oregon on the back of the Elsinore Theatre. It was painted in 1984 by art professor Jim Mattingly. It is titled “Theatrical Heartscape” and depicts characters from vaudeville because the theatre has a long history of vaudeville. On the mural are—W.C. Fields, Theda Bara, Marlene Dietrich, and Charlie Chaplin

Dreams Do Come True

Grandson in LA

Hollywood streets paved with dreams

Where some stars shine bright

Grandson is livin’ his it seems

He’s walking those streets tonight 

Syllabic Rhyme

My oldest grandson is a music artist in LA tonight to perform a show there on Friday. Tomorrow is his 25th birthday. He is so excited because he dreamed his whole life that someday he would go to LA and now he’s there for his birthday and to perform a show. I am so happy for him that his dream came true!
