We could each bring a chair and then leave it with you for another screening!!! I would love to see the Christmas movies.

On 16mm we have stuff from every decade from the 1920s to the 1980s, but heaviest on the 1930s and 1940s---lots of comedy, music, and mysteries, but also a little drama and Western. And a nice selection of Christmas movies!

We had a good day at school today. I had to choose Student of the Month, and I chose a kid who has been a pain for a good part of the year. I have worked with him on his classroom behavior, and he has improved greatly, especially this month. I told the principal that I had chosen Giordan, and she was thrilled. I told her that I wanted to reward his improvement, and I think it might help him to continue improving, especially with the new teacher. I can hardly wait to see his face when it is announced. He will get to have lunch with the principal. Even though it will be a pizza lunch, he will still get to have Round Table pizza with us (the other students and me). I don't think he has ever won Student of the Month in all his four years at our school! The announcement will be made on Wednesday.

Thanks! He is good to me! And thanks for the compliment on the bike. The bike is a bit wild in color and old fashioned looking. Might not be the style a lot of people like in a bike, but it's my bike and I love it!

I tried out the mountain bikes and some other styles but the cruiser bikes just feel more comfortable to me.

That is so very nice of you!!! I am sure that kid will remember that and always will strive to do well in the future!

That is wonderful, Seawaters!!

I'm sure that will be added encouragement & incentive that Giordan welcomes!

Let us know his reaction

Hospital emergency wards can be so boring! My eldest is here with a very bad cough that us making her sore and throw up. I think they forgot we are here. Waiting for chest X-rays.
She has been sick for some time but refused to get checked out until I made her come. We have been here since 4pm and it is now 8:15pm.
