I will be fun to get behind the wheel again, even if it is just for one day.
We just got a notice that all of the local schools are closed tomorrow because of flooding over the roads. The rivers are bursting with water!

Here's quick shot of the field (not a pond, but a field) across the road from my office.

Whoa! Several years ago, our schools were closed for a week. Normally the flooding doesn't affect us like that, but a trestle broke and that was all she wrote! My MIL had to be "rescued" by airboat so she and her BF could go stay at a motel. Weird. Hasn't happened since, at least not for that length of time.

good morning everyone! we had another laid back weekend. we watched "American Horror Story" on Netflix Saturday. uh, that was kind'a weird. Not sure what network it was originally on, but it was extremely questionable!!!! Hubby likes watching anything that doesn't have commercials & we don't have Tvo. I found myself feeling quite uncomfortable @ times throughout the shows.

the weather has been rainy w/ yesterday being our only dry, sunny day.

does anyone watch "Once Upon A Time"? I have been enjoying that show. It's about all the fairytale characters from our childhood being stuck in this town & ruled by the wicked witch. I guess it's like a grown up version, you could say.
as you can see, all i have been doing is watching TV. lol

have a great day everyone!!!!
I have meant to watch Once Upon A Time but always forget when it is on ! xo

I've always loved the Marx Brothers. When I was a young teen I read everything about them I could get my hands on. (Well, there were no VCRs, so I couldn't collect their movies.) My favorite Halloween costume was Harpo, and I played fair---I wouldn't speak.

Bill Marx, one of Harpo's sons, had a traveling act in the 1980s. He played the piano, and his partner played the harp, and Bill talked about Harpo. I brought along a 1st-edition copy of "Harpo Speaks" for him to sign, and he wanted me to stick around to talk after the autograph line finished, but my ride was leaving (I didn't have a license yet) and I couldn't stay. I've always regretted that.

For a few years, a local TV station would run a Marx Brothers marathon on New Year's Eve, from about 5 p.m. till past midnight. My parents would go to a card party, my brother would go to my grandparents, and for one night in the year I had the TV to myself and all the Marx Brothers I could handle! Those were great evenings.

I agree that their movies aren't on TV often enough. The next generations won't have a chance to discover them. At least all their movies have been released on DVD.

It must have been quite exciting to meet one of Harpo's sons !! That is wonderful !!! xo

Have a MERRY day and be safe!!!

Enjoy your book and be sure to kiss that little tyke for me !! xo along with Mouse, of course xo
