Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?: A Theatre Review

As endings go, it would be hard to top Mammoth’s local theatre company.

The Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre (MLRT) ends its season with a fiery explosion in the form of the expletive-laced, tremulous relationship between George and Martha in Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”

Fido & Me - Play Ball

April 8, 2013

 

“I’m not sure I was cut out to be a center fielder,” Fido panted.

“But you’re a dog!” I said. “It seems like you’d be a natural.”

“Not really. My legs don’t work that way. I’m mostly a chow-chow. Ever hear of a Hall-of-Fame chow in center field?”

“Now that you mention it, no.”

Off The Trail- Meet the Devils Postpile’s forgotten little sister

April 3, 2013

 

Lower Rock Creek trail, one of the best early season hikes in the area, holds many secrets—including the Devils Postpile’s forgotten little sister.

Fido & Me - Spring Sniffs

April 3, 2013

 

“My sniffer is working again!” Fido yelled.

“Pray tell, my big fine fellow,” said I.

“It’s like someone just flipped the ‘on’ switch! Don’t you sense all these fine whiffs?”

“Human aren’t that tuned in to sniffs, like dogs.”

“That’s too bad. Let’s go over here! No! Over here! No! Over there!”

Needy Fido

March 7, 2013

 

“Geez Fido, get out of the way, will ya? It’s about the third time today I’ve almost tripped over you.”

“I was just making sure you knew I was still here,” Fido said.

“It’s not like anybody could miss you. You’re 80 pounds of Big Red Lug.”

“But I don’t care about anybody. I care about you, you, and you.”

Fido & Me - No can do

March 6, 2013

 

“Road trip, Fido! Fetch your feed!”

“Oh boy, oh-boy, oh-boy. Where are we going?”

“It’s quite up to you, Fido. I have nothing on the radar that jumps out at me. But every now and then it’s good to get out of Dodge.”

“Let’s go to where it’s warm. Death Valley!”

“Um, there’s a problem with that. Can’t go to Death Valley.”

“But I’ve heard that it’s a lot better than it sounds.”

Fido & Me - Stormy Weather

February 22, 2013

 

“I said at the beginning of the week that we’re in for a long one.”

“You did,” I said, “and if you really wanted to help, you might want to knock some of that snow off the headlights.”

“It’s going to be a long winter,” Fido said. “Humans forget. They get a dry spell and they think it’s never going to snow, ever again.  But dogs like me know.”

“Just out of curiosity, Fido, what clued you in?”

A ‘grand adventure’

February 15, 2013

 

Longtime locals, Mono Lake rangers David and Janet Carle release a book about traveling around the world following the latitude of the Eastern Sierra

Climbing frozen water

February 15, 2013

 

The Eastside’s most ephemeral sport in full swing

On an unusually warm midwinter day, Juan Lopez swung into the ice with the hard-earned familiarity of years of working construction.

A veteran of a battle against diabetes and holding a laundry list of prescription medications, Lopez, 43, of Woodlake, said he was looking for moderation. He found it by climbing ice.

Fido & Me - The Week that Was

February 15, 2013

 

“Wotta week!” Fido said.

“Yes, it sure was. You must be exhausted, Old Sport.”

“That’s OK, because I’m a dog, and even when we’re exhausted, if there is still a little bit of fuel in the tank, we can keep on going.”

“Well put. Humans aren’t quite like that, and the older they get, well, you know. Did you have a favorite part?”

Fido showed no hesitation. He wagged his stump.

“Foolsday was my favorite part!”
