Warm Underwear = Snuggly Place

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!!

Take care,

My late and dearly missed Jackal [a rat terrier] usd to do the same thing ... he particularly favored towels, chenille bathrobes, blankets and bedspreads ... anything really cozy and likely to retain the scent of either mu husband or myself. He was "my" dog and used to growl at my husband whenever he came to bed but then would abandon me and cuddle against him once he was in bed because Jack was nothing if not an opportunistic little guy and my husband generated way more body heat than I did.

Aw..such a cute pic. We too are getting poured on from the heavens. First wave is past us and the second is yet to come. At least it won't get cold enough here for it to turn in to snow!

*whew*

My dog, like most, actually prefers the dirty laundry that has all our good smells on it. My mother's chocolate lab Cazzie would carry around dirty unmentionables.

I hope Lolly doesn't shed like Stella! That could get prickly.

Rachel S said...

Sweet photo! My old dog would do that. She loved to roll in the warm unmentionables. Cute . . . til we realized how much she was shedding.

Daffycat said...

Oh, there's nothing like a pile of warm laundry to snuggle in!

Thanks for the shout-out, Edgar!

Dear Lolly,

Tell your fa-ther that you require a freshly warmed blanket, right out of the dryer to be presented to you each afternoon for nap time.

Oh, and don't forget the cookie too!

With love from your pal,
Stewey, who has a mo-ther who has been providing him with warmed blankets in the attempt to get him to stop weeing on the drapes.

Awww, how cute! The movie sounds like a good one. Did you watch it on T.V. or is it on DVD? I'm here in Arizona and will be receiving those rains/snow real soon.

Berit said...

Love it! Lolly is too adorable there! r

Love Lolly! Clarice just jumps right in the dryer with the clothes so be glad Lolly waits until they are out. I'm constantly checking and rechecking before I start it up.

Lolly looks so content!! Nothing like clean, warm laundry to snuggle in!!! Our cats just love the after dryer basket of clothes.

Deborah said...

That lolly is a cutie! We are getting alot of rain tomorrow, thankly it is not snow. I have had enough.

sheri said...

Awww, Lolly is adorable. No flies on her, she knows how to live the high life! It's like a Spa Treatment!

Snow in San Francisco, that would be something. Hope you get some snaps if you end up with some of the white stuff!

Alice said...

Isn't Lolly cute! She looks like the cat that swallowed the canary. My daughter likes me to pile towels fresh from the dryer on top of her so she can absorb their warmth as I fold. She has much the same expression as Lolly does.

Perils of Paulette! LOL That makes me think of Snidely Whiplash and Penelope Pitstop. Whoa. That's a blast from the past.
