Gentle Readers and Dear Friends - WOWzers... thank you all so very much for the kind words about Lil Smokie and his coming into our lives. Although in a round about arrival he is a welcome addition to our family. Now, what we have to get used to is the training of Mr. Smokie - or the "Smokes" - his nickname after a day. We have the herd pretty well trained - there is always the occasional "present" - but for the most part we are on a schedule going out and doing our duty!! (dooty) :) With the new addition - we have started the training on the wee-wee pads - but trying to get him to leave his "Butt Cookies" (as we euphemistically call them) on the pad - I think is going to be an uphill battle. For such a tiny puppy - he seems to be working overtime in that department. Oh well, part of bringing up a new baby!!
There really is not much at all going on - the weather warmed up considerably yesterday - into the very low 80's and a slight warm breeze was a'blowing - so we spent a good long time at the pool after work - it was very relaxing!!
I am still plugging away at my little Sampler - which I have tentatively named "Two Birds Sampler" - not very original, but descriptive. If I can keep up the stitching pace I might have it complete in the next week or so. We shall see.
No good movies to report on - I have been watching lots of films, just not very good ones or rewatching ones I have seen before. I did want to mention that today on TCM the Showcase Star is.....
Joan Blondell - 1906-1979
Some of her films they are showing today include - "Gold Diggers of 1933" - 1933, "Footlight Parade" - 1933, "He Was Her Man" - 1934, "Sinners Holiday" - 1930, "Dames" - 1934 and "Stand In" - 1937 - She was a tough as nails kind of dame with a heart of gold. Many of her films are available on DVD they are fun to watch and worth a look!!
There you go sports fans. Thanks for dropping by, do come again!
