Dinner was Murder


My very dear friends invited me to attend a dinner event in their place on Saturday evening. The dinner would benefit Actor’s Theatre, a group I featured on a previous post so, I quickly agreed. What I didn’t know was that the dinner would include murder and mayhem. Pictured above are the soon to expire Brock Barrington and his lovely but somewhat shallow bride, Chyna.



The event was produced by Murder Ink Productions, a well established company owned by Marney and Alan Austin. The mystery we found ourselves involved in was called “Die Nasty in Dallas” (pun fully intended) and it was written by Joe Chandler, attorney at law, known this evening as Brock Barrington (pictured above). I even played a role in this little drama as a gossip columnist and author of tell-all, unauthorized biographies.





In spite of the murder and pandemonium that ensued throughout the evening, dinner was served with the usual flair that the host restaurant is known for. You can see our waiter in the small photo arriving with dessert.

The dessert and the waiter looks pretty good. At first I suspected the man with the white whiskers was Ted Turner.

I saw him last night on 60 Minutes and found out he owns more land in American than any other person. Millions of acres. God bless him for that...the wildlife are welcome there.

I am finding I enjoy the theater over movies. Seems the movies are made for te 20-something crowd.

Looks like the waiter has talent too! I'm sure I would drop some of those lovely desserts.
