Mama Mia! A funny, entertaining musical with the music of Abba. Went to the opening night 7 pm showing in Oshkosh on July 18 and the theater was full. Also attended Monday eve at the Point theater in Madison after playing tennis. It is rare to find a movie worth attending a theater for. mammamiamovie.com this site is not recommended if you have dial up. Beautiful scenery on a Greek Island.
Attended German Fest Friday night. Enjoyed Alpen Echoes from Minnesota and Johnny Hoffmann & Die Herzbuben from Milwaukee. The bands from Germany that I saw were more rock oriented. The fest is changing. Not all polkas and Volksmusik anymore. Many attending with walkers or wheelchairs. Bought 2 Edelweiss plants at the Fest and planted them next to my raspberries and flowering oaks. The Edelweiss are mountain flowers and need partial shade and good drainage.
Have picked 2 Yellow Boy tomatoes, lots of lettuce and green beans, peas, a little spinach, radishes and a few small carrots from my garden. Flowers include many tall snap dragons, 2 geraniums, 2 flowering oaks, 2 double impatients and now the 2 Edelweiss.
