I love My favorite Wife. Grant was always good and Dunne was always lovely and one of the best comedic actresses I know of. Have you seen the Awful Truth? They are both in it and it's very funny. I haven't seen Christmas in Connecticut but want to. I have heard it's great.

Hi Ryan ! It seems I have seen The Awful Truth but I can't remember for sure. I just LOVED Cary Grant in almost everything he was in and Irene Dunne, well, she had a beauty that none of the actresses today had, it came from inside out. I also loved Arsenic And Old Lace with Cary Grant. I could go on and on !! Yes, if you get a chance, see Christmas In Connecticut. It is very charming.

I thought he looked familiar !!! Do you think the Betty White character passes away at the end of that movie ?? (The Lost Valentine ) I was thinking that perhaps she does because she is there watering her roses thinking about her husband and imagines him there with her like when she was young and she drops the hose.....???

Arsenic and Old Lace is great! Have you seen the Bachelor and the Bobbysoxer? It is my favorite Cary Grant movie and one of my all time favorites, period. It's very funny.

I love that movie. It doesn't come on tv that often but if it does, I'll have it on - It's a scream.....

Goodnight everyone. I have stayed up too late. Hallmark Movie Channel had a new western on tonight. I will regret watching until after midnight, but it was pretty good. Have a good Sunday.

Good Morning, Folks,

Sunday.

What better day to rub the sleep from your eyes (I find that hard to do) so that you can clearly read this:
Days to the Season: 290
Days to Christmas Day: 332
In just 16 days -- two weeks from the day after tomorrow -- we will reach Milestone #2, the one-fourth marker to the Season.
(Then just wait until you see how close the next Milestone is!)

Well, thanks to slightly warmer temps, nearly all of the ice melted yesterday.
Would you believe possibly 70+ degrees by mid-week?
Weird!
We currently stand at 28 degrees here in the capital city.

And while you ponder the strange and exciting facts enumerated above, you allow time to have a Super Sunday, allrighty?

Well the housework wont do itself, nor will the dinner so quick catch up on what ive missed then Id better get cracked on!!

Have a great day!! x
