the rest of the evening as I had an hour or so
- Here is the little bit I got done -
The second dogs eye looks weird without the stitch in it!!
The movies last night where a Netflix pick and an TCM pick - The Netflix selection was "Pygmalion" - 1938 with Leslie Howard (the year before he was Ashley Wilkes in GWTW) and Wendy Hiller - what a gorgeous picture and so well done!! This was the filmed version of George Bernard Shaw's play and the basis for the musical "My Fair Lady" - 1964. While watching the film it was hard not to be expecting the songs to pop up at the appropriate spot!! This B&W film has more social commentary than the musical but then again that was what the play was about - I would highly recommend this movie as both Hiller and Howard are top notch. This was only the second film for Hiller but she completely masters her character and you totally believe the caterpillar to butterfly evolution.
"Pygmalion" was followed by "Night of the Iguana" - 1964 - a film I always enjoy!! Yesterday was Ava Gardner Day on TCM - and this was the mid evening showing. With Richard Burton, Ava Gardner and Deborah Kerr - these three give stellar performances!! In fact for both Gardner and Kerr this is a true
Now to the answers for the comments -
Tiddy-Kitty is the kitty cat the lives at work and takes care of the mice as they infiltrate this building - I am not too sure that she really cares about the mice as that may be more trouble than she wants to put into anything... usually she is just sitting around or lounging around waiting for some scratching and pats from everyone. She seems to live on my desk during the day as I usually have and electric fire going underneath to take the chill off - this makes the desk a pretty warm spot that I am sure she thinks is just for her.
A Pig Picken cake is a cake that Dale makes that I always see at BBQ's or have seen in the past - not out here in the wild west but back in NC - it is basically a yellow cake that has pineapple added to the mix. The finished cake is iced in whipped cream that has more pineapple tid-bits added - I have had it where coconut is also put in but since Dale does not like that he never adds it to either the cake part or the icing. I really like it and may be wrong about what is in it - I will find out tomorrow and report back if I got it wrong - which would not surprise me in the least.
I had an annual check up at the Dr's yesterday - how great is Dr. Knox by the way - can I get a woo woo!!! - But, everything is fine and I even lost some poundage!!! Will miracles never cease!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
