The George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary ~ One REAL FUN Place to Visit!

With Tuesday having sunshine & blue skies, Lucky & Sugar-toes decided to play hookey and head to the  George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary in Delta, BC. We met some nice people from Abbotsford and Chilliwack feeding the birds. We saw all sorts of COOL birds, a Lucky Black Squirrel, 2 minks, flowers and a bus load of kids having fun with nature.

Sorry, Wrong Number a radio mystery play
by Lucille Fletcher
presented by DSR Productions
directed by Mark Carter
Synopsis: Sorry Wrong Number comes from a classic radio series called Suspense, that was broadcast during the 1940s and 50s. Sorry, Wrong Number, its single most popular episode, was about a bedridden woman who panics after overhearing a murder plot on a crossed telephone connection but is unable to persuade anyone to investigate. It was first broadcast on May 25, 1943, and was restaged seven times, the last on February 14, 1960 — each time with the legendary Agnes Moorehead. DSR Productions provides this classic piece of entertainment.

For the Pleasure of Seeing Her Again
a comedy by Michel Tremblay
presented by Vagabond Players
directed by Corina Akeson
Synopsis: This is Canadian playwright Michel Trembley’s funny, nostalgic work centered on memories of his mother’s irreverent tales of family and friends. He shows us how the mother’s vision shapes her son, not so much driving him into a world of words and theatre as opening it up to him in ways even she can’t really comprehend. The young son is not only accustomed to her histrionics, but amused and entertained by them as well.
