Ann's dramatic representations of the dying son's mother reached a bit too far. But, other than that, the story makes for an entertaining show. The episode is on my favorites list. 12-20-15

Walrus '73

This was a very touching story & it reminds me of a movie called TILL WE MEET AGAIN where there's a lady who, like Mike in the story, was diagnosed with a terminal illness, who meets a man who's b'n convicted of a homicide & has b'n sentenced 2 death. Moreover.....it reminds of the ballad WILDFIRE sung by MICHAEL MARTIN MURPHY where he sings this guy who has a farm & the apparent ghost of a young woman ran out in a blinding, bone-chilling, blizzard looking 4 her pony, WILDFIRE who broke out of his stall & ran into the blizzard. Both the young lady & Wildfire were lost in the blizzard & succumbed 2 exposure in the elements(that's the only way the story in the song makes sense 2 me). The farmer is so fed up with farming that he senses the spirit of the girl's coming 2 take him away & they're both gonna be riding Wildfire, the pony, when they go. Very similar 2 what seems 2 have happened 2 Mike in the RMT play(it appears that Laura 4 him). This also makes me think of a 1983 song by the Aussie singing duo, AIR SUPPLY called TWO LESS LONELY PEOPLE. I give this RMT play an 8.5 out of 10. Have 2 move on but I'll be back 4 another adventure in the macabre. Until next time.....pleasant dreams. :-)
