If you remember, one of my goals to work on after I retired, was to work my way through the boxes (and boxes) and albums of photos that I seemed to have amassed over the years. My idea was that I would sort the photos into different categories and then scan the photos to make digital albums. There would be a copy kept on our portable hard drive and then there would be copies stored in either my Facebook account and/or my Box account. The latter 2 methods of storage mean that there is yet other copies which can be retrieved from any computer not just ours. The Facebook album of my mother's family has been brilliant for all the younger members of our extended family as they can copy photos for themselves.
One lot of photos that I've been putting aside for quite a while and have quite a pile, were photos taken at functions and celebrations at our church. The other day I had fun scanning and putting together a digital album of a concert we had in 1992 to raise funds...and we had lots of fun!
In the kitchen...
|These lovely ladies were even having fun with the washing up!|
|There was a wonderful buffet table in the kitchen and one of the cheeky players was getting up close and personal to one poor fellow...|
Some of our young parishioners provided musical items...
There were recitations...
|This lady was a lecturer in the English Department of the University of Queensland...before this she worked as a teacher aide at the school where I worked, and she wrote pantomimes for my Year 7 Drama Club...|
The ladies guild worked on an act too...a medley of songs from 'My Fair Lady'... lots of rehearsals for that!
|Waiting in the Sunday School room waiting for our item to be announced...|
Melodrama # 1
|Phew! We're nearly at the end of the drama now, having survived forgotten lines by one cast member who then ad libbed and jumped a whole page of the script...and that page had my character's funny lines too! sigh...|
Father Neville organised this in friendly opposition to our Melodrama#1! They had had less rehearsals than us...and it showed! lol But young Peta was brilliant as Poppy the poor heroine....
|The holey stockings were a nice touch! lol|
|Peta's mum, Pat, and Father Neville were the villains...|
There were heaps of other musical items and also some dancing. It was a great night and it's been fun to 'look back'.
