Village Square Theater

12 Jun 2017 – Second Samuel


Sat: #2 is better and off to a Bday party in the afternoon while Cindy took #4&5 to the movie Beauty&The Beast. Had hardly any sleep last night!! and also have seen the movie recently, so stay in to rest.

The Village Square Theatre, Lexington’s Community Playhouse, is owned and operated by the Lexington County Arts Association. Used  as a movie-house in the 1970s. Was told that it was also used as some auto show-room but unable to find any links to confirm that; this painting in the lobby does not even look anything like the present building.

It was a simpler time in the late 1940s, especially in South Georgia and specifically in a sleepy little town.  What had been called the Great Depression was quickly fading into memory. The war had been won, the election was now over, and ‘Give ’em Hell Harry’ was still president. It had been an exciting time for sure, but the folks in Second Samuel were ready for things to settle down and get back to normal. Except—this was the summer Miss Gertrude passed away, and deep dark secrets were about to be revealed. Nobody could have imagined how the death of one sweet little old lady would turn the entire town upside down, leaving everybody in Second Samuel wondering if anything would ever be normal again!

Delightful & entertaining performance with a touching message about life and friendships in the Southern treasure. Tkx Cindy for this.

Tonight’s clouds and sunset are for Gators’ Fans. Dinner@LittleChina Buffet. Food – nothing to write home about, but the a wild selection at reasonable price, even a senior discount.

Sun: Linn is on the road (3hrs there&3hrs back) to pick up the hiking gang@Ammons Branch Campground NC so that they can get to the car at their starting point@Burrells Ford SC. This year’s hike is about the same as last year except that they will hike further to ABC and not have backtrack to the car.

Family safe and sound home together and had a good hike with the best weather ever. VBS starts next week.
