I love me some Laurel and Hardy! What is your favorite one? Mine is Sons of the Desert. My favorite short they did is Helpmates. Stan can make me laugh like no one else.

We have had that happen here too, just a few weeks ago. It is so strange to see lightening and hear thunder in the winter!

I was thinking about this the other night, but I didn't have a bottle of Coke or Pepsi! I think I will make a run to Wal-Mart and get some to have on hand when the mood hits me!

Yes, it is strange, Star. The first time I heard about thunder and snow together and thunder in the winter was in the movie Christmas Snow. It just seemed so weird to me!

I don't think it is yet. I think it just premiered this weekend. I caught some of it last night and it was very good! Tom Hanks provides the narration, and there are actors portraying Lincoln, Booth, and the others. I'm guessing it will come to DVD soon. I'm going to try and DVR it on the next showing.

A great movie that was made some years ago for TNT is The Day Lincoln Was Shot. If you're interested in the subject, I recommend it. Very good movie.
