Here we come!   The other day Avenidas staged its second annual Avenidas Follies, and JoAnn, one of the young lady participants and I were asked to do a skit.  I was handed a book of skits to look over.  Then JoAnn and I talked about it, and the following evolved out of two brief discussions we had.


Don:  Hi, JoAnn.

JoAnn:  Hello, Don.

Don:  That was a pretty good lunch the other day.

JoAnn:  Which one?

Don:  The rigoletto and chicken.

JoAnn:  That’s rigatoni!  Rigoletto’s an opera!

Don:  Oh.  You mean the one by Joe Green?

JoAnn:  That’s right.  Except it’s pronounced Guiseppi Verdi.

Don:  You know, they’ve asked us to do a skit for the follies.  What do you think?

JoAnn:  (doubtfully)  I don’t know.

Don:  Have you ever done any acting?

JoAnn:  The last time I was in a play was back in high school -- back when dinosaurs roamed the earth!

Don:  Give it  some thought.  ‘Bye, JoAnn.

JoAnn:  I will.  Goodbye, Don

It ran for about 30 seconds.

I didn’t realize that photos were being taken, so Cliff took this one of us after the show was over.

Now for other (?) humor --


A person who has stopped growing at both ends and is now growing in the middle.

The place where women curl up and dye. 

The only animals you eat before they are born and after they are dead.

A body that keeps minutes and wastes hours.


  1. What a team! Next time you and JoAnn are going to have to do a longer skit! How about this one:

    If there's no blackboard you could update it with a PowerPoint slide show.

  2. I forgot to ask for your autograph! You two did a great job!

    Now that you've seen the show, you can start planning for next year!
