Good story. Did you do much acting?<quoted text>
You never can tell! lol
I had the priveledge of working with both Austrians
and Germans when I appeared as an extra in the
Oberammergau Passion Play.
At first there was much 'clicking of heels' as we
stood in the wings waiting to go on stage...
Overcame that and became firm friends, in fact, we all cried on
the last night at having to part. No, I don't think it was out of
Little story. I was caught talking on stage and the producer sacked me.
There were Austrians, Germans, and English in the comapny.
Guess who came out in sympathy with me, and of course without them
the 'show' could not go on.
It was the Germans, the stars of the performance. Each and every
one refused to carry on until I was reinstated.
I apologised profusely to the producer in front of everybody to save his face, as after all he was right to take the stand he did, he then reinstated me. I will never forget that.
I'm hesitant to say too much on Topix, but guess I'll take a risk. Since I'm talking about me,(I am actually the center of the universe- BTW - but my wife won't buy it), my grandma on the other side had 'Young' for a maiden name, so you and me might be related? She was a good Catholic. She was also very musical, so I think I might be related to Angus Young of ACDC. I know, he is an Australian, but, aren't all the Caucasian Australians descendents of convicts from the UK? LOL? Her brothers (from New York) did kind of look like Angus (I would not say she did! lol). They were outgoing and a little 'wild and crazy'- for 70 or 80 year olds.
