Thanks for the report, Larry, and for being there to represent!  I'm glad Annie was smiling and glad to talk about Brokeback.  8)

A bunch of our Brokies saw a play based on BBM in Europe, Belgium, I think.  Leslie (MaineWriter) went over and saw it.  I can't find the thread, though.  It was awhile ago.

She sure liked the idea of copies of Brokeback squashing Gideon Bibles in motel rooms!

A few years ago, printed out much of the comment on and description of the Dutch two-man play.  Was surprised she didn't mention it.  Maybe that's what she meant when she said there was interest in Finland.

Finland, Netherlands, they're all fish-slapping lands over there somewhere!  ::)

Little darlins,

Great news.  Diana Ossana just responded on Facebook to my account about last night:   "Hmmm....maybe she's had a change of heart....thanks, Larry! I will definitely look into this."

You'd better be careful, Little Darlin'. I believe they "slap fish" in Sweden and Norway, too.  8)

That's exciting news! One gets the feeling from Story to Screenplay that they got along and worked well together, Diana and Annie, I mean.

Our reports about the play begin here:

The actors met our Brokie group after the play. :)
Good times! :)

Thanks, Chrissi.  I don't know how I missed seeing that thread.  Sometimes you miss the very thing you're looking for.  :P
