Sliding doors may have been out ol" favor Ib-r a few .years bul they certainly are not new. When an uncle of mine built a new home about 1950, he ira:laded several sliding doors. Only instead of calling them barn doors as they are now often called, he called them [x~ket dtxws for the slid into the wall instead of being exp,u like the ttglay's barn doors, I first realized the usefulness uf i~:ke dt~rs while visiting tim Olive [-|ill ~nage with my parent- My parents and the couple pastoriag the church were friends, We were froq ue~tly invited to the pa~---~nage after evening ~rvices, As a little guy w~ld nap on the fro~t atom couch as Ihc adulls gathered around a table in the dining room.

When my lather added on to tmr hembe ~m Bl~uvell'.~ Hill in 1 )53 and 1956. he utilized sliding dtx~ to clo~ off two large closets. I think they were better than Ihe hi-fold d~wn's which in recent years have been popular ckw, et closurer:s. Barn doors, pocket doors, closet dt~)r~, whatever you call them, each design may have slightly differenl hardware but the principal is the same. They ride on tracks and slide back and forth, Thai i-,n't a new concept. I~t.~rs have been doing that for a long t~me. Jttst a.~ them ape dil't~nmces in the ~ay sliding d~,~l's are designed, barn dtxw hardware is r~ot all the same. My falher built a shed in 1949 in which he.slored molter vehicles.

'As a y~Jngste I watched my Gm.dfather Blauveh shave with a straight-edge razor, 11 w;~ quite a proee~ for the former barber. Firsl he used a strap to get the razor's edgejust right. Then he wra~ his face in steaming hot towels m soften the whiskers. Finally he drew the raz.t)r over his face. He never had the oppt~lu nily to givehis grandson a shave for which I am thankful, He did get to cut my hair while he instructed my father about the barbering an, tt wasn'! a gtxxf experience, l think hisold hand operated clippers pulled out as much hair as they cut.

Shaving at Grandfather Wrench's hnu.',e was much ~ess stw.ssful. Grandfather putled a chair up to the liztl-lcngth mirror mounted in the clos door under the stairway and leisurely ran his electric razor c~wer his. face. He must have enjoyed il tbr he continued the pr~ess long a~er I thought he was done. Before I was old enough m shave, my father had ~.x>nverted m an electric razor= He preferred the kind wilh three rotary heads. While I have ased a safety razor when camping, I much prefer the et tric variety. Sunday morning, while cleaning my razor, the rotary heads fell on the floor,Two wcro easy to find but one rolled behind either the water softer, st" or water heater.

A Different Slant By Ch~k Minan On Sunday, I attended a monthly table read in Omaha, an event altended by area ~'reenwrilers and actors and hosted by a few friend-~ of mine at the office of Independent Gorilla Productions. Table reads are great Ionia for writers who want to hear their script.'; perf~rmed by actors ~ lh(:y can make changes if they hear something they don't like or if they find out something they t hought wou|d get a big laugh fal Is flat instead. They are al~ greal for actors because they're asked Io read variousparts, which keeps lhem aelivcly exploring their craft. II's al.~o gt~x:l praclicc for "cold readings." which can be helpful during an audition, Though it'~ probably rare. sometimes table reads result in aclor~ and filmmakers finding each ~lher anti going tm m make the prt~jecl Io,~elher Writers are lypically allowed about 20 pages ~f any project they're currently working on.

The experience ,ff having it ~ad aloud by g~',d actors is invaluable to me. So far. 1 have picked up on ~vcral things to work on, but overall 1 believe i|'s in great shape. "Su~'iving Megan" is .~heduled lo go imp pn~uclkm later this summer as my fir~l time dixcc|ing a 1"~ature film. Kathy and I are pr( .~Iucing and the film will fall under the auspioes oflhc ncwly-incorporaled label. Digger Bee Films. On Friday, we met with two additional prodnccr~ v,h~ c pn:sscd interest in the projec~ and we decided to v, cl omc them both to 1he lcam.
