It's Hump Day - and I can see the weekend

It'll be a short no snaps kind of post today - I stitched on exchanges last night after packing up a bunch of things that have to be mailed today - The HOE Christmas ornament, The ornament exchange for Carolyn, the Smalls Exchange piece for Naomi and a bunch of Swap-Bot obligations. It's a bag full of fun flowing out into the world.

The movies last night were WWII themed as it was Veterans Day - and TCM showed a really good one called "Hollywood Canteen" - 1944. The movie is about a fictionalized visit of a wounded soldier to the Hollywood Canteen who is obsessed with Joan Leslie (today we would call it stalking). You get to see lots of stars and lots of entertainment. I have always enjoyed this flick not because it portrays anything real - its just a nice movie. This was followed up by "Stage Door Canteen" - 1943. I only saw about 45 mins of this an promptly fell into a coma. I eventually lapsed out of that coma and the movie was over and it was way to late to be up so I trotted off to bed. A pretty exciting evening living on the edge like that!!! The second Canteen movie - what I saw of it- seemed pretty good and when it comes on again I will try and watch it.

Thanks for stopping by!!

take care,

Don't you just hate getting into a movie and the waking up to find you've missed the end?
