Yeah, a few but I really don't want any of the stuff from the 80's.

I would love to find The Night They Saved Christmas on DVD, I occasionally find it on Ebay, but WAAAY to expensive for a used DVD.

It was full of these large pieces of concrete, stones and clay and had been sittting there for about 5 years.

Needles to say, it was all by hand (shovel and wheelbarrow) and uphill to boot. Wheew, by the end of the day yesterday, I was about 1/3 of the way completed and so was I... I got up this morning and I forgot about how many muscles the human body has; ha-ha and everyone of them hurts! Oh baby, did a hut tub feel good to soak in! So today, I'm taking it a little easy, spending the day working on home videos again (still in my pj's - "what a bum", lol).

In a couple of hours, we are going to head over to Bertucci's for dinner (Oh, can't beat their brick oven fired thin crust pizzas) and besides, my son, his girlfriend and best friend all work there so we're going to go over there and harrass them for a little while, best of all he can wait on us, (he loves that part) lol... Then it will be on the road to drop my daughter back off at college later (spring break is over for her) and then hopefully, get back in time tonight to watch the Hobbit tonight; the mrs bought it for me yesterday.

Weekends, why can't they last longer? Man, it seems like they just fly by and before you know it, it's Monday morning and off to work again...Yuck; I think that should be outlawed....Oh well, I think a big bowl of ice cream and a movie is well deserved tonight....
Sounds like you could use some Icy Hot, I hope you enjoyed Bertucci's, we haven't been there since my oldest sons 2nd birthday which means it was just about 6 years ago.

I am not sure. It was in the discussion we had last week, talking about movies. I will have to go back through the posts and see if I recognize the name. I should have written it down. What is so funny is I just (about half an hour ago) bought a tablet and pen to set here by the computer to write notes and recommendations for myself as I read the posts!!! We have had so many good posts on movies, crocheting patterns, food, (etc.) lately that I didn't want to miss any. A day late and a dollar short, I guess, LOL!

Good evening,

I am still feeling pretty yucky, it is amazing how miserable you feel when your ears are blocked, I can't hear much and it is driving me nuts. I will probably head back to the Dr on Tuesday, see if there is anything he can do, prescribe, so on... We went to see The Croods for our niece's birthday, I didn't like the movie too much, give me the Flintstones any day. Then it was off to their house for pizza and cake, but I should have stayed home, but who can turn down pizza and cake.

I am feeling lousy, so I will probably say good night now, I do have to work, I can't afford to miss any more work time.


Good night everyone.

I bought one brand new off of Amazon a few years back. I will look to see if I can find any info. On who I bought it from...

Besides being a Christmas nut, I'm also a Charlie's Angels nut, I had to have it because I love Jacklyn Smith too
