'Baby' ~ Dinner ~ Movies ~ Ron Lancaster ~ Corn Fritters

Good 47º (burrrrrr.....) morning. Shudda had on my winter jammies!!! Supposed to be cooler (80º's) and possible rain and thunder for the next couple days.

Trimmed a few grapevines yesterday, until the back said "enough!" Then the rest of the excitement came from doing laundry!

'Baby' hangs out here all day and is waiting for me in the morning for chow! Sorry, lousy picture, took it through the glass storm door... See, her extra front toes.

...... and dinner! OMG that was just more over the top excitement than most people could stand...

I watched a couple of good movies. First one, silly, "See Jane Date". A single girl living in New York tries to impress her high school nemesis by inventing the perfect boyfriend as her date to an impending wedding of her snotty "I'm better than you because I have a man" cousin, then embarks on a string of blind dates to fill the bill. Starring Charisma Carpenter, a real cutie. (she was named after an Avon perfume!)

Then I watched Secretariat.
Penny Chenery Tweedy, played by one of my most favorites ... Diane Lane, and colleagues guide her long-shot but precocious stallion, she calls Red, to set, in 1973, the unbeaten record for winning the Triple Crown. It also stars John Malkovich, who is weird weird and plays weirdos, but was surprisingly good in this movie. Well, except for his wardrobe,
(salmon, gag) at least it
improved by the end of the movie! Good movie. I enjoyed it.


I love this...... turn up your sound!

I didn't know until yesterday that it was Ronnie Lancaster's birthday 7-15-45. Thanks for that, April. Ronnie worked Temple in the 70's and was a roommate to Jerry and Steve Voors. Ronnie, you were a good friend and you are so very missed! Happy Birthday. RIP.
