As soon as I get home from school, I will get it since I have Netflix. I can watch it on my Nook Tablet!

They follow this man around who transforms himself to becoming Santa. Others are interviewed as well and some history about Santa. I loved it! It's available on Netflix, if you have it. That is where I watched it.

Good Friday morning, my Christmas friends!

I worked at my brother's shop on the Camaro till 9:30 last night. We dis-assembled the front end and had it sandblasted. Last night we coated the bare metal with primer. In a couple days we'll spray it all glossy black, then re-assemble the front end. Then we'll be ready to drop the motor in!

This is my weekend at Bernie's (not quite like the movie!)


I hope y'all have a great day!

Make sure you make copies of the videos for your grandkids. That will be so special. I wish I could be there with you and your mom to watch the videos with y'all. That, too, would be so much fun. I'll bring the popcorn. Who wants me to pick them up in the Lear???

It's fun to watch her get excited about her childhood friends. She "narrates" and tells me what is going on in each clip. She has seen all these before but it's been over 20 years since the last time she watched it. I love seeing her and my aunt playing together, swimming at the beach, dancing, roller skating, riding bikes, traveling and more!

Xmas365, I was trying to figure out how I could give her that on DVD as a gift. It won't be possible because we have already been discussing getting this done together soon. But you gave me a really great idea! I make videos all the time with my grandchildren set to music. I also do videos for our church for certain services. A lot of editing and music added. My mom has always enjoyed my videos I make. Since these films are silent, I was thinking when I can get this transferred digitally I will try to edit clips to music and give her that for Christmas. She will LOVE it!!! So thanks for the idea!

I forgot to tell y'all that I had to scrape my car yesterday morning before I went to work. It was really hard to open my door, too. Hubby said this morning that he will go out and take care of that for me. He is so sweet. Because of him, I can count on my fingers how many times I have had to pump my own gas in the last 16 years. I am so lucky!!!

I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the suggestion, Brad. I will check for that one, too!

It sounds similar to a movie that was discussed on one of the podcasts. There was an interview with the writer of a movie called "They Wore the Red Suit", or something like that. It's supposed to be a documentary about the people who become professional Santas. I've been looking forward to that one, too.

We're starting to get into expensive stuff, so I expect things to slow a bit. Once it's safe to drive, it'll probably become a "work in progress".

Yea, but I count Christmas days, LOL!!! Now I will start counting retirement days, especially after Tuesday when I find out exactly! I never thought I would look forward to retirement. But I am not retiring FROM teaching; I am retiring TO do more crafting, help re-do the kitchen, and do more traveling!
