I would LOVE to see that movie! Obviously, the books I read were the ones that were NOT politically correct!

I read 'em all!

Have you ever seen the Five Little Peppers movies starring Edith Fellows? They are set in the modern day (the 1940s) and are probably not very true to the books. The little girl who plays Phronsie is a hoot. We were watching one of the movies where the Peppers go to a boarding school and are snubbed by the other students, especially one very snooty girl. This girl was giving Polly a hard time near a pond. We were yelling at the screen, "Push her in, Phronsie!" And she did!

I am relieved to hear she is doing better. It must have been really good to spend time with your friends.



Yeah I agree, you can't let the cream shop close without having some!



Me too!

Maybe we will be there for dinner! Who wants to go?

The screen of my digital camera has been smashed, I think it might of been the baby playing with it. I don't know when it happened. Anyway DH ordered a new screen and it came today . He is hoping that he can replace it . I hope that is the only problem with it and it works! Fingers crossed. It was a christmas gift from DH a couple years ago.

I hope you all are having a good day. Back to making dinner and bath time for the children. DH won't be home from work till late.

I hear you on the weight, too! I have stopped working out but picked it back up again this week. It's kicking my hind end! I feel great after I do it, but its tough waking up early enough to get it done. Now i just need to eat better! Good luck with yours...I know you can do it!
