It's Wednesday

Not too much going on here - Yesterday - after work, I finally got the 4 hairs I have left cut so that my hair looks less like a bird nest than usual!!! Then is was off to the fabric store in south city - Joanne's to be precise, and they were having a SALE!! So needless to say I bought a butt load of stuff when I actually had intended to buy a only a few things. Then from there we went over to Home Depot and picked up a couple of light bulbs - for a large stand/torchere lamp that was my grandfathers and takes a special giant base bulb - these are only $4 at HD. From there is was of to Target for some plants for the balcony. Up until yesterday the balcony was sort of a dead desert zone now it is a verdant garden again, thanks to Rico!! After a quick dinner at Carl's Jr we got home and the rest of the evening was spent finishing up exchanges, so not a single snap today. :(

The movie last night was from the Rosalind Russel star of the month series on TCM - called "A Majority of One" - 1961 - what a great little film!!! This was the follow up project after the super smash of "Auntie Mame" - 1958. "AMoO" co-starred Alex Guinness playing a widowed Japanese businessman and Rosalind played an Orthodox Jewish widow. The plot basically was- "A gentle love story about a Japanese businessman and widower, and a Brooklyn widow. But before a happy ending can ensue, they must learn again the lessons of tolerance, kindness and forgiveness." I really enjoyed this flick although it was really odd to watch Alec in Asian Makeup and odd accent, but it was still a time in Hollywood where actors played outside of race and tried everything. If you ever get the chance to see it I would recommend you do.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
Take care,
edgar
