  1. Amazing Becky! What an incredible journey these productions have become for you. It’s remarkable to look at how much you’ve accomplished in the last couple of years!

    Congratulations!! πŸ˜€

  2. Thanks very much Vanessa. I’m certainly not solely responsible – if it wasn’t for Harvey Crabsticks, and the rest of the cast and crew, we wouldn’t be anywhere as far as we’ve come. By the way, we sent you an invite to the preview by notecard, did you receive it? I know they can get “lost in the mail” sometimes. Check you inventory πŸ™‚

    1. Yes Becky, I was a little imprecise in my use of the term “You”! πŸ˜€

      Humpty Vanessa sat on a wall and said “When I use a word it means exactly what I mean it to mean, nothing less and nothing more.”

      And in this instance I’m sure I meant for “YOU” to mean BOTH “You-All” as in Harvey and your whole incredible cast & team… and “You-Becky”. Lots of youz!

      Oh… actually I somehow did miss your notecard… I’ll go check! TY!
