Gentle Readers and Dear Friends - the weather is gonna get a little cranky here in Baghdad by the Bay. We are now being told that along with the rain - that should start up tomorrow night - we should expect there to be some snow flurries. How odd is that!! Now, I know it feels cold enough to snow, but to actually have some here in the city is so very odd. I would love me some snow - for two reasons - 1) I just like the stuff and think it is pretty and 2) It will not stick so I can still drive and get around. We shall see what happens.
Yesterday the mail brought me a lovely ornament from my HOE Exchange partner, Ina. This ornament exchange was the Reindeer one and wraps up my participation for this round. Here is a snap.....
He is just darling and its hard to see but he is wearing a great little green bead necklace/wreath. Thank you so much Ina - he will look great on my stitching tree next year!! The next HOE Ornament Round is for a Quaker inspired piece - I think I have picked out what I will stitch - now to get it stitched and finished up.
Last night the flicker was "North West Frontier" - 1959 - (also know by the American title of "Flame over India) - starring Kenneth Moore, Lauren Bacall, Herbert Lom, Wilfrid Hyde-White, I.S. Johar and Ursula Jeans. Set in NW India in 1905 - the story revolves around a governess and the British are try to get an orphaned Indian Prince to safety. They attempt to do this by train going across enemy held territory. A fast paced and exciting British film with lots of action and wonderful scenery. At just over 2 hours you never feel the time passing and once the film is over you miss the "Victoria's" little band of travellers. I enjoyed the film and would recommend it to any fan of adventure films.
I worked a bit on Shores, but nothing spectacular and not a frog in site!!
That's about it for today sports fans. Thank you all so much for the kind words for yesterdays post!!
Do stop by again.
