Things that wow me locally...

I just saw the list of plays/musicals that are being done and shown in our little Altoona...Pippi Longstocking, Cats, Civil war musical, and more. I am amazed. For small town, this is one that is amazing musically. In the 1800's, this town had a theater on nearly every corner. People would come by trolley and go out to vaudeville show or "higher" artsy musical. It seems the tradition is alive and well. Altoona was a railroad town and though it is far from the city life it once was, theater life seems to be flourishing, thankfully. Hopefully, more will follow...

I just moved back here from Erie and if this is what Altoona has become, any withdrawal should be easier to cope with. :)

Really?! How great!! What part of Blair County/Altoona are you in?

We have got to met up once you settle in...there are some great places/people around here. Sending you a big welcome! :)

We're in Gallitzin actually, next door to Blair County a.k.a. "Up The Mountain." We're from the area originally so we're familiar but a lot has changed & evolved.

Fantastic! I checked out your blogs...wow! So very great to have you near. I'm not actually from Altoona (only been here 3 years) and am learning a whole lot about this interestingly contradictory place. If you ever want to meet, let me know. I should just email you, really. :)
