In minutes I will be off to Liscombe Lodge. I'll pickup my best pal and we'll head down the road. We'll stop for groceries somewhere - I need to find some kind of snack I am allowed cuz these are BIG snacking weekends and I need to be fortified against temptation. We have the scripts, the players, the blood, the gun. Ah, what a job! I like this script - I think it is funny and look forward to seeing what all the actors make of it. I like my part - Ninette Beazley - Nose of the North. She is kind of a eccentric journalist. I've played her before. I dare say she is one of my alter egos. She's sort of asexual and a bit like Jane Hathaway - sensible, acerbic. Wait a minute! You don't know who Jane Hathaway is. Why she's the indomitable assistant to Drysdale down at the bank that my friends the Clampets use. She's a bit mad for Jethro and loves bird watching. I adore her. They're both pretty smart Ninette and Jane. Ninette is the ninth of twelve kids her parents had. Uno, Duxie, Treise, Quatro, Fiva, Six (!), Septimus, Octavia, Ninette, Dixie, Onzie and Fred. (Her mum put her foot down at the end.) Well gotta fly. Let you know how it all unfurls - a nosey journalist, an aging child star, a lonesome cowboy, an aussie bounty hunter, a biker chick, a hard nosed business woman and a patsy!
