It’s been ten years since my Marty was crushed to death by his fancy new recliner with the electric. The chair just went haywire while he was watching a Patriot’s game! (I wish it had been the Celtics.) I miss him every minute, but especially when there’s news and politics to discuss. I switched from soap operas to politics around the change of life. My son, Francis says I lost some brain cells along with my hormones. He has a mouth. I blame his wife.
I know I can be pretty tappy , but I pay attention to what those millionaires we elect to represent us are up to. What they’re up to is making sure the rich keep their tax cuts while the rest of us lose our pensions, our houses and our Bingo money.
Now they are talking about cutting Social Security and a lot of seniors are worried that we won’t be able to afford anything but cat food.
I’ll have more information next time, after I sample some brands. My cats are no help.
Tomorrow, Saturday April 9 at 8:30 come out and support Temple Emunah as they present the Naughty Nanas’ Bucket List. Dessert buffet included! 9 Piper Road, Lexington, MA.
Check out Kathy Shiels Tully’s article in the 1/7/11 issue of The Melrose Patch.

Our fearless videographer, Nancy Lynne Albertson, spent a day with most of the Nanas and the men of New Tricks Improv. She’s put together our Senior Speed Date video which will have its international debut at our show tonight. No red carpet; it’s Central Square, after all.
The Naughty Nanas gleefully give in to their ids because time is short. They give a comic twist to the invisibility of older women in our culture and the changes and losses that come with aging. Mark thee, there will be rituals

Bubby Bobbi here: The Nanas show at Amazing Things in Framingham was fabulous. It was a wonderful way to spend the first night of Hanukkah; so sorry if you couldn’t be with us. But while it’s too late to see us in 2010, you will shortly be able to purchase advance tickets for our Friday January 7 and 14 performances at ImprovBoston’s SketchHaus. Think holiday presents for your near and dear! Details to follow. Happy Hanukkah!
