Red Carpet

Graphic design by Opus & Roscoe

As we all gather here tonight for the premiere showing of CCSI II: The Santa Caper there are so many thoughts whirling around in my head. It is so hard to put into words the thanks I have for all who has worked so hard in front of and behind the scenes to make this evening possible. A special thanks for all of the countless hours spent working overtime in the Graphic Design Studio by Ruis, Karl, Opus and Roscoe. Without their devotion to the show and the viewers none of us would be standing here tonight. A million thanks to all.

All today I have been having a song from the musical "Gypsy" going through my head. Perhaps you are familiar with this wonderful song whose music was written by Jule Styne and the lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. This song pretty much says how I feel about what tonight is about and I want to share these words with my cast, crew, and the viewers:

"You'll be swell! You'll be great! Gonna have the whole world on the plate! Starting here, starting now, honey, every thing's coming up roses! . . .

l-r: Opus, Roscoe, Sassy, Mrs. Oz, Monte, Karl, & Ruis

. . . Clear the decks! Clear the tracks!You've got nothing to do but relax. Blow a kiss. Take a bow. Honey, every thing's coming up roses! . . .

l-r: Asta, Momo, Tigger, Gemini, Dragohneart, & Victor Tabbycat

. . . Curtain up! Light the lights! You got nothing to hit but the heights! You'll be swell. You'll be great. I can tell. Just you wait . . .

front l-r: Bonnie, & China Cat
back l-r: Tybalt, Samatha, Percy, Sanjee, & Miles

. . . Curtain up! Light the lights! We got nothing to hit but the heights! I can tell, wait and see. There's the bell! Follow me! And nothings gonna stop us 'til we're through . . .

standing l-r: Daisy, Pepi, & Adan in limo l-r: Sammy, & Willow

. . . Honey, every thing's coming up roses and daffodils! Every thing's coming up sunshine and Santa Claus!Every thing's gonna be bright lights and lollipops . . .

standing: Zoey
in limo l-r: Trixie, Pyewacket, & Tigger The FBI Cat

. . . Honey, every thing's coming up roses and daffodils! Every thing's coming up sunshine and Santa Claus!

l-r: Yao Lin, Maggy, Momo, & Charlie
front: Pinot

. . . Every thing's gonna be bright lights and lollipops! Every thing's coming up roses for me and for you!"

Thanks to Karl for a wonderful script! To Ruis for his direction and great red carpet photos and to you Sassy, for thinking this whole "animals write for Hollywood" idea.

Thank you, my dear Sassy, for making this huge event possible! We all look great and beautiful, and we are ready for FOUR days CCSI, with the premiere tomorrow!!

To all the visitors, I want to correct something about the photos --
I did them not all:
Mrs. OZ clothed herself.
Also Asta clothed herself, and Miles, Daisy, Adan & Monte were clothed by Karl.
