PAPA Presents "Sunshine Boys" by Neil Simon

Note that this information is outdated.

PAPA will bring another hilarious play to The Plaza Stage with Sunshine Boys by Neil Simon. The comedic play focuses on aging Al Lewis and Willy Clark, a one-time vaudevillian team known as "Lewis and Clark" who, over the course of forty-odd years, not only grew to hate each other but never spoke to each other off-stage throughout the final year of their act. The stubborn Clark, who was not ready for retirement, resented the wiser Lewis for breaking up the act when he opted to leave show business. It is now 1972 and CBS is inviting the team to reunite for a special on the history of comedy, with the pair representing the vaudeville era at its best. Clark is convinced by his nephew Ben to revive one of the old routines one last time. Buy Tickets or call (706) 923-1655.

When/Where: The Plaza Arts Center November 15, 16, 22, & 23 November 17 8:00 PM & 3:00 PM Matinee on November 17

Give the gift of life and donate blood

It's been a while since I donated blood.  Frankly I dislike needles so much that if you know me, you'd likely faint to know I have my 8 gallon pin.  For years I gave every couple of months when a former work place hosted the Red Cross.  They have to always put a big bunch of paper towels under the tubes the warm blood flows to the bag through so it won't touch my skin.  Makes me a little queezy to feel it and I don't look.   But for many years my Daddy was a blood doner.  He can no longer give and I guess I better get back in the habit.  So I plan to go to the Milledgeville Mall on April 28th to give my pint to save a life.  I hope I'll see you there.


When/Where: Milledgeville Mall April 28, 2012 from Noon until 5:00 p.m.

Inspired and entertained by Gene Espy

Monday I was invited to dinner with a few dozen of my parents friends to sit down and listen to a tail of the trail by Gene Espy.  Mr. Espy was the second person to hike the entire Appalachian Trail.  His adventures were so interesting and entertaining.  His journey took place in 1951.  He was 24 years old at the time and took off from Georgia headed to Maine with $300. and a back pack. 

He said he got lost a few times, killed a snake with his hiking stick and wore out three pair of hiking shoes and two pair of socks along the way.  He was always the adventure seeker it seems.  He built his own water skis and was the first person to ski on Lake Blackshear in Georgia (before Lake Sinclair was ever built).  He also took off while a student at Georgia Tech on a bet that he couldn't hitch hike to St. Louis starting on Friday and getting back in time to start class on Monday.  He made it... through Indianapolis.  He mailed post cards for 1 cent from St. Louis to "prove" to his friends he really made the trip. 

If you ever have the opportunity to hear him speak, please take it.  You can also order an autographed copy of his book from his on-line store. You will also find a photo taken of him in 1951 on the trail at this site, so please check out the link.

To take more than 10,000 hikers have done the entire trail.  This year was the first induction to the Appalachian Trail hall of fame and of course Mr. Espy was included. His now vintage hiking equipment is on display in the visitors center at Amicalola Falls State Park, Georgia near the approach trail to Springer Mountain.  So if you visit Amicalola Falls State Park, make sure to find it.

Selling a home on Lake Sinclair? Take our advice...

Take Our Advice…

As a homeowner, you can play an important part in the timely sale of your property by following a little advice based on our experience.

1.    MAKE THE MOST OF THAT FIRST IMPRESSION- Never under-estimate the importance of outward appearances- especially where your home is concerned.  Potential buyers begin their decision making process early, with the first glance at your property. A well manicured lawn, neatly trimmed shrubs, and a clutter free porch welcome prospects; so does a freshly painted- or at least freshly scrubbed front door.  If it’s summer, mow the lawn and keep it watered.  The fewer obstacles between prospects and the true appeal of your home the better.

2.    INVEST A FEW HOURS FOR FUTURE DIVIDENDS- Here’s your chance to clean up in real estate.  Clean up the great room, the bath room, the bedrooms and the kitchen.  If the woodwork is scuffed or the paint is fading, perhaps you might want to consider some minor redecoration.  Fresh paint or wall paper in the kitchen or bath can add both charm and value to your property. Prospects would rather see how great your home looks than hear you tell how great it could look, “with a little work”. Earth tones work best as new buyers can see their "things" working in your space.

3.    CHECK FAUCETS AND BULBS- Dripping water rattles the nerves, discolors sinks and suggests faulty or worn-out plumbing.  Burned out bulbs leave prospects in the dark.  Don’t let little problems detract from what’s right with your home.  These things are minor and can make a difference, don't neglect them.

4.    DON’T SHUT OUT A SALE- If cabinets or doors stick in your home, you can be sure they will stick in a prospect’s mind.  Don’t try to explain away sticky situations when you can easily plane them away.  A little effort on your part can smooth the way toward a closing.  Don't take the attitude that you are selling for less and the buyer can "fix that".  If you don't fix it, you might be the the one living with it.

5.    THINK SAFETY- Homeowners learn to live with all kinds of self-set booby traps: toys on the floor, slippery throw rugs, low hanging overhead lights.  Make your residence as non-perilous as possible for uninitiated visitors. I know I am guilty of this.  I leave dog toys on my floor and I myself recently tripped in the night.  Before a showing pick up.

6.    MAKE ROOM FOR SPACE- Remember, potential buyers are looking for more than just comfortable living space.  They’re looking for storage space, too.  Make sure your attic, basement and/or storage room are clean and free from unnecessary items. And if your rooms are stuffed with furniture, consider storage for some of it.  Less is more.

7.    CONSIDER YOUR CLOSETS- The better organized a closet, the larger it appears.  Now’s the time to box up those unwanted clothes and donate them to a charity.

8.    CREATE DREAM BEDROOMS- Wake up prospects to the cozy comforts of your bedrooms. For a spacious look, get rid of excess furniture.  Colorful bedrooms and fresh curtains are a must.  Earth tones work best if you are painting. Pick up a copy of Southern Living and copy a bedroom, make it look like the spa.

9.    MAKE YOUR BATHROOMS SPARKLE- Bathrooms sell homes, so let them shine.  Check and repair unsightly caulking in the tubs and showers.  For added allure, display your best towels, mats and shower curtains. And make that toilet bowl shine.  A air freshener that isn't sweet or over powering is nice too.

10.OPEN UP THE DAYTIME- Let the sunshine in! Pull back your curtains and drapes and open your blinds so prospects can see how bright and cheery your home really is. Walking into a dark house or room can turn off buyers.

11.LIGHTEN UP AT NIGHT- Turn on the excitement by turning on all your lights (including lamps) - both inside and out- when showing your home in the evening or daytime.  Lights add color and warmth and make prospects feel welcome.

12.WATCH YOUR PETS- Dogs and cats are wonderful companions, but not when you’re selling a home.  If possible take your pets away from the house.  If that's not possible a crate is a must.

13.THINK VOLUME-  When it’s time to show your home low volume soft music works best.  I bet your television comes with some nice soft music you can set to a low volumn for showings.

14.DON’T TURN YOUR HOME INTO A SECOND HAND STORE- When prospects come to view your home, don’t distract them with offers to sell those furnishings you no longer need.  You may loose the biggest sale of all. And pack away those collections, nicnacs and photos off the refrigerator.  Less is more.

15.THE SMELL OF MONEY- It’s best not to smoke inside your home when it’s on the market.  This is a big turnoff for buyers, even buyers who may smoke.  Clean carpet, drapes and add an air purifier if you are a smoker, so your deal won’t go up in smoke.
