Gentle Readers and Dear Friends you are so kind about my crazy conversions!! Thank you so much! You do realize that as I start September Cottage if the colours aren't working i might just have to change them again, I held out some of the reds and pinks and even a dark brown that didn't make the cut..... that may just work better.... we shall see.
I spoke to my sister last night catching up before they leave on their trip to South Dakota... specifically for the 72nd Motorcycle run in Sturgis.
A few years ago Rico and I drove out to Rapid City, SD, where Rico's family is from. Sturgis is just north of RC. Since I can't show any stitching snaps today, I thought I would dig out some snaps of the Badlands of SD.....
It was a super trip and the landscape was just spectacular!!!
I caught two Myrna films last night... "The Thin Man" - 1934 -
the film that started the series of Thin man films... and ... "Cheaper by the Dozen" - 1950 -
a great film that Myrna stars along with Clifton Webb and Jeanne Crain. An interesting tid-bit about this film is that some of it was shot on the back lot at MGM, and was a 20th Century Fox film.... Fox didn't have a standing house set so they used the house the Smith's lived in in "Meet me in St Louis" on MGM's St Louis street.
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks again for stopping by, do stop again!!
