Plainsong, A Colorado Setting

Last night Mark and I joined my uncle Gil and Helen Murphy at the Denver Center for the Performing Art to view Plainsong. The play is a fresh adaptation of the 1999 novel by Kent Haruf. It's set in Holt, a fictional small town in eastern Colorado that's based on Yuma, a ranching community 140 miles west of Denver. The book was written by Kent Haruf, who happened to work as a shelver at the Denver Public Library before he was published. My aunt Jean was the head librarian and she kept watch on the development of his career. So we readers went out to view the stage adaptation version.

Following the play we dined at the Crue, a Larimer Street wine bar. The wines were great, the food average. The atomsphere was pleasant and the company was terrific. We discussed the play, our future travel plans and politics while we dined on ciopinno, ahi tuna, pork chop, and venison. The cheese plate was below average but the cheese fondue was delicious. Weather was in the 40s so walking around the city was a delight.

Well here is the long await unveiling of the 2008 Jamboree jammies.
The boys will be so cute! Almost can't wait.
