Yes! 149 Years Old

Dear Stephanie,

You are right. I am 149 years old !!!!! For the past 19 years I have been presenting shows for youngsters, but most of my life I was a Prospector. Do your know what a Prospector does ?

Dear Krista, April, Andrew:

First, I can't answer your question about calling you on stage right now. Andrew, try to figure out my age, I know you can do it. Oh, and Andrew that was a cute idea about Simon trying to get a pie, BUT that's not what happens. And I can't make the show any longer !!! Besides you should be happy and thankful for all the time you have in class--you get to learn such neat things and gain knowledge.

Your friend,
Prospector Parker

Dear Jeromy:

Yes, you'll see the show on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. My musical is based on a Mother Goose nursery rhyme. See if you can find it and read it-that will give you a little bit of an idea about the play. See you then.

Dear John and Andrew:

Thanks for your notes. John, you should be able to figure out the age, especially if you like Math. Andrew got it right !!!

I was a Prospector, Andrew, for as long as I can remember, but I retired in 1978 to start my theatre. I love doing shows for young people.

The conflict: hint--Simple Simon has a bag of gold, but he doesn't understand how valuable it is !!! Any ideas now ? John, 8 AM is an early time to start school, but I must admit most days I am awake and working by 6AM !!!!!

Only 4 weeks to go and I'll be at Delmar !!

Your friend,
Prospector Parker
