Friday Wrap Up

GR&DF I really enjoyed the comments about Mama Pidge and the Pidge-lettes.  On yesterdays "Doo" outing Lolly startled the Mama Pidge and she flew up - hovered a bit - and the flew immediately back down - but in those few seconds I could see a couple of sweet golden chicks nestled together.  I'll try to get a snap this weekend, but really they are just fluff in a nest.

Laxsr night consisted of trying to finish up some finishing, working on a giftie and stitching a bit on "Monthlies" - and not a snap in sight!!  I'll get a snap of a least the Monthly progress for Monday.  

Last night the flicker was "Murder by Death" - 1976 - starring - Eileen Brennan, Truman Capote, Peter Falk, James Coco, Alec Guinness, Elsa Lanchester, David Niven, Maggie Smith, Peter Sellars, Nancy Walker, James Cromwell and Richard Narita.  A great flick that I always enjoy - It is a spoof of Private Eye types from films and books.  If for no other reason than the stellar cast this is a movie to see that is fun and funny!!!

Don't forget to throw a comment at this POST if you want to be included in the "B" Word give-a-way.  Winner announced on Monday.

Thanks for stopping by and for your great comments!!!  Do come again!

Take care,


  1. Murder by Death was one of the first movies I watched after we started our Netflix late last year. Love it!

  2. Oh my goodness, I love that movie...I think it is waaaay better than "Clue" (which I love too)...and the ending is awesome. I am going to have to add that to my Netflix list! Peter Falk is hilarious. I loved Maggie Smith and David Niven; there aren't too many movies that showcase her talent for humor...although, she was terrific in "Ya-Ya Sisterhood", and Harry Potter sometimes gives a glimpse of her sacastic wit!

    Can't wait to see snaps of the pidggies and your WIPs. Have a great weekend!

    Happy Stitchin'

    Can't wait to see

  3. Can't wait to see the baby bird pictures.

  4. I had no idea that pidgeletts were gold. You would think that they would be on the grey-blue side.

    Have never seen "Murder by Death", but there are so many actors/actresses in it I really like. Maggie Smith I can watch all the time. Just love her and so glad she is still with us! So many of the good ones are disappearing!

  5. I have a soft spot for Murder by Death. I think Maggie took us one Saturday afternoon.

  6. After looking at all these comments about Murder By Death I think I need to see this one!

  7. Murder by Death is awesome!
    Just think, you can take pics of all your doings next week and give us all an extra treat. I especially like to see your finishing finished!

  8. Love Murder by Death! So, so funny! Have a nice, stitchy weekend.

  9. Love Murder by Death! We have the dvd. Maybe it's due for a rewatch this weekend.A double header with Foul Play sounds good! I have Despicable Me from Netflix so I want to see that too.Looking forward to a progress pic of the monthlies. Hugs from cold NY, Nancy

  10. I love that movie, I must track it down on DVD - thanks for the memories :)

  11. Watched Despicable was great. Love Murder by Death and anything Maggie Smith. She is on Downton Abbey (wonderful series) on PBS on Sunday nights (Toronto/ Buffalo) playing a crusty old matriarch...her sarcasm is clever in this one. Loving the chick watch!
