Gentle Readers and Dear Friends the rains they are a falling. Now whether or not they turn to snow tomorrow is still be predicted, but it is in the 40's at the moment so it has to get a bit cooler.....
Last night after Tacos a la Rico - I was in the midst of doing some mid week laundry. I brought up the first load of stuff and was separating and folding and I turned to the couch and in the middle of a pile of unmentionables and towels was a sweet little Lolly falling asleep.....
Somebody thought the snap was not worthy of posting, but how sweet is this, I ask you!! I know I have posted her in other piles of laundry, and it still amazes me how she just jumps into the warmth with abandon and snuggles right down. The Pete and Peach have never shown much interest in the warm laundry, but for Lolly it is Nirvana!!
Yesterday I posted a snap of the ornament that Ina sent me and then last night I got an email from the designer of the piece. It was one of the cute freebies from Daffycat. Click on over to see other designs. The reindeer that Ina stitched is called Mistletoe Reindeer. I am so happy to give the credit for such a cute design!!
The flicker last night was a doozy - called "Unconquered" - 1947 - starring Gary Cooper, Paulette Goddard, Howard da Silva and Boris Karloff. I really enjoyed this DeMille pseudo historical adventure film. Set in the American Colonies circa 1763 and the Uprising of the Native Populations in the Ohio River Valley - you get lots of "bad Indians", "good Colonists" and incompetent naive British soldiers. Do not look for historical accuracy or for any kind of political correctness - what you get with this movie is a whole lot of action and adventure. The film was originally shot in beautiful three strip Technicolor and the DVD transfer did not disappoint. The film begins in London with Paulette up on a murder charge and being given a choice of the gallows or a 14 year slavery sentence in the New World......... it's off to the New World and so begins the "Perils of Paulette." I can think of no actress so put upon in any film. She is bound numerous times (chains, rope, leather), has her blouse ripped off and almost publicly whipped, again her lovely dress is ripped and she stands almost burned at the stake, almost drowned going over a waterfall, almost raped ect.... When you watch a DeMille film you go along for the ride and forgive the inaccuracies. A longish film a almost 2 1/2 hours but good fun with a happy ending!!
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks you for stopping by do come again!!
