Teischan is standing, RIGHTMOST, in the bag (at the back) waiting to skip out.

Teischan is the furthest RIGHT.

Teischan is the LAST one at the back.

You can’t hardly see Teischan. She is right at the back to the RIGHT. You can just see her left cheek.


We plan to get some better pictures when we attend the Wolfeboro
performance given that my Canon Rebel T3i, set at ISO 6400,
can take some decent shots without a flash


Last year. As a Bon-Bon in Wolfeboro.

Teischan, in #2 t0 #4 above, took part as a Bon-Bon (as she also did last year) in both the Saturday and Sunday performances at Oyster River High School. Though we, of course, shuttled her their and back we did not attend either of those two performances. We go to one of the Wolfeboro performances because we consider that the ‘Home Game‘. So I only got to take pictures after the show. The very striking lady above is ‘Karen’, Teischan’s ballet teacher. She is also the one that you see, seated on the floor, in the ‘thumbnail’ image shown next to the links. I gather she used to be a talented and famous ballerina. I do not know her very well. But she kindly allowed me to take this picture. The two other girls above WANTED their picture taken and I was happy to oblige. They are so pumped after the show. Great stuff.

Well yesterday while Teischan was performing in Durham I bought tickets for all of us to go the ‘Nutcracker’ in Boston by the Boston Ballet. I will do a separate post on that. This is the funny thing about being in a show such as the ‘Nutcracker’ with such a large cast and umpteen acts. Teischan has never got to see the entire stage play. She just gets to see the act before the ‘Bon-Bons’ and the start of the one that follows. So she has only seen the entire show on DVD. Now she will get to see it, on a rather grand scale, on the stage.

I took in excess of 70 pictures of the parade, independent of the Clearlakes Chorale caroling ahead of the parade. I have all the pictures of the parade in two forms below: as an automated YouTube slideshow (video) with music or as a gallery. You take your pick. The YouTube slideshow is fun. You can, of course, look at BOTH. Enjoy.

We stumbled upon this very clever and guaranteed to be fun communal event after our Saturday morning ballet class in Wolfeboro, N.H. while waiting for the 2014 Christmas Tree Lighting and parade to start. I have to admit that it was the gingerbread lady that initially attracted me to the event. I wanted a picture of her. She kindly invited the two 8 year olds to participate. The rest is history.

Wonderful crowd inside. Realtors are always so convivial and one even mistook me for another ‘brown’ guy in Wolfeboro which kind of miffed me because I like being the only brown guy around. For the world of me I can’t remember if I have ever used Spencer-Hughes for any of my many real estate transactions around the Lake over the last 25 years. They all kind of blur into a jumble after a while. Got to meet the eponymous Mr. Robert Hughes (the President and Broker at the agency) and Fae Moore. Very pleasant people.

I gather this was an event that they had used to do and had fallen by the wayside for a few years. Glad they resurrected it. Kids loved it. Great way to get people to come into the office and get to know some of the people. Well done Spencer-Hughes.

Most Thursday nights for the last three years I had to take Devanee for Clearlakes Chorale practice in Wolfeboro, N.H. Didn’t mind at all. Gave me a chance to listen to the music and also get an hours walk, in the dark, around ever delightful Wolfeboro.

Now for the last couple of months I have to take Teischan to ballet classes in Wolfeboro Saturday mornings. Again I don’t mind. Yes, it means I have to get up a hour and hour ahead of my normal schedule but I would never begrudge that a child. While she is at class I use the hour for yet another walk, this time in daylight, around Wolfeboro. I love Wolfeboro. Have been going there since 1991. So never a hardship. Always fun. Always something to see. Something to learn. Today I really didn’t need to do an hours walk. I had done my usual 2.5 mile run Wednesday and had spent about 5 hours shoveling snow since then. But I did a leisurely walk, with the camera. Took some pictures. Devanee tagged along. That was good. We went back with about 5 minutes to spare. Managed to get these pictures.

Yes, our favorite Bon Bon was in it,
as she had in Durham for the first two performances.


Here is the YouTube video of the Bon Bons from Wolfeboro.

Here is the deal. Teischan, of course, has her own Website.

I created a dedicated Nutcracker 2013 page
on it for her earlier this morning.
So rather than duplicating stuff why don’t you please visit that page.

This is the 2nd Nutcracker by Northeastern Ballet that we have been to. We went to one two years ago. I bought the tickets online. So this year I got an e-mail that talked about auditions. The rest is history.

I enjoyed the first show we attended. With four kids I have been to quite a few Nutcracker shows. Despite my dramatic introduction to ballet, I sometimes feel that some of the ballet routines in some Nutcracker performances go on for a tad too long. Not so with Edra Toth’s production for Northeastern. Sheer Goldilocks. Just right. Perfection.

It was a wonderful performance. Hit the spot. Very talented troupe. We kind of feel blessed. Clearlakes Chorale and Northeastern Ballet. We have a division of labor here: I do Clearlakes with Devanee and Deanna did Northeastern Ballet with Teischan. Getting to go to the two performances, a week apart, was magic. That Mrs. Cook, Devanee’s 2nd Grade Teacher from Alton Central (ACS), now retired, was able to come with us was special. We all had a good time.

The show finished at 9:20.

At 9:40 pm, the Saturday before Christmas, everything was closed in Wolfeboro! Talk about being provisional. Wow. I was amazed and distraught. Eventually we managed to get sandwiches and microwaved soup at the Wolfeboro Inn.

But, it was a great, memorable night out.
