My gosh, it does not seem like it has been that long! I kept seeing polar bear items today. Even though I miss the talks we used to have, seeing the bears made me smile as I felt she was there in spirit.

Wasn't he in the silent Phantom of the Opera? That is an eerie film what with the odd colors. I liked it! I hope the party ends on time and that the enjoyment you get when you watch The Wizard of Oz makes the noise from the band unheard!

It had very odd colors for a silent film! There is one scene I remember where the Phantom is dressed in a skeleton mask and the colors are very vibrant and errie.

Good evening, MMC!

Long day again today. Worked, went to the ornament premiere, grocery shopped and even found a few goodies I can use in the store next time I put out stock. Topped last year's September sales by a good bit, too. Found out that a few of the items that have been there a few months sold - yay! All in all, a very good day!

When I got home I found Palmer beating her teddy bear up. I think she was taking out her rage on my leaving for the day on the poor bear. I'll toss it in the wash and it will be good as new. She slept with it when she was a kitten and now it is her punching bag. She seem to have forgiven me. Do you think it was the tuna fish I bribed her with?

Picked a small basket of tomatoes and four zucchini. Have never had a garden last this long - so cool! It looks like I will be canning on Monday due to storms tomorrow. I found a recipe for tomato basil jam and decided I had to make at least one batch. The tomatoes on the freezer are ripening fast and there is enough for the jam and some more chipotle sauce. Normally I freeze the sauces but, there is not enough room for that and the meat bought today. Tomorrow I get to rearrange items in the freezer. Might as well plan some meals while I am at, too.

My knee is feeling better - have been resting it for the past few hours. Time to go do a few chores and listen to the rest of the Greasy Skillet.

MERRY dreams!!! Stay safe, too!

That's okay! I had to kid you a bit.

Yep, he was the original Phantom in the movies.

We watched the end of the ball game---Sox won again! Now we're watching a Burns and Allen movie.

That scene was shot in two-color Technicolor (before the three-strip process was developed). A special process in the scene on the roof added some color to the Phantom. If you get the Kino DVD, you can see the effect. In the rest of the film, scenes were tinted various colors by a dye bath. ALL silent films were originally tinted that way, but today we often see only black-and-white prints.

Thanks, buddy!!! They had a bigger Santa on Ski's for just a few dollars more but he was more cartoony looking. I loved this one because he is a more realistic looking.

They had a Santa in a sleigh yesterday that I really liked but they were all gone today. So I got the one that looks like a Santa faced carved into a log. He was the last one of those they had too. He actually has a little scuff on him on the very back of one side that you can't really see. They gave him to me for $6 dollars though instead of the $15 they had on him. So that's probably how much they paid for him. I just wish I knew where they got them at.
