Around here you would be looking at close to $100 for Mobil 1 full synthetic oil.

Well my afternoon got ruined. I had to go get mom from work because she had a migraine. Then we spent an hour and half at the doctors office waiting for her to get a shot. We are finally back home though. Now what to cook for dinner?

I saw him on a panel at a film convention, and someone phrased a question that implied he might have had a better life if he hadn't been screwed up by his childhood in films. He promptly shot back, "I've never been screwed up!" And his cameo appearance on "Cheers" was priceless. I have a photo with Spanky.

You wouldn't recognize the names of most of those I've met. Some went way back into the late 1920s and early 1930s (before Spanky, Darla, Alfalfa, etc.---the series ran from 1927 into the 1940s). But here goes: Dorothy DeBorba (Echo), Harry Spear, Pineapple Jackson, Jerry Tucker, Jacquie Lyn, Eugene Lee (Porky), and the very first Our Gang member: "Sunshine Sammy" Morrison. Mr. once had a nice chat with Darla Hood at an airport, and also met Jean Darling.

I attended a film convention in 1992 that was unforgettable. Hal Roach (head of the studio where the Our Gang and Laurel & Hardy films were made) was a guest, at the age of 100. Several Our Gang "kids"---now in their 70s and 80s---were also there as guests. So in one place were the now-elderly "kids" and their 100-year-old "boss"!

I've almost met a few of the "Babes in Toyland" (1934) stars: Virginia Karns (Mother Goose), Henry Brandon (aka Henry Kleinbach--Old Barnaby), and Felix Knight (Tom Tom). Again, unforgettable!
That's impressive!!! I know you are glad you met these legendary people!!! I will have to show my dad this. He loves things like this!

This just sparked up a conversation with my mom down memory lane. She just left my house about a half hour ago. We sat on the computer looking up a couple of houses she lived in Long Beach, California.

She absolutely could not remember the actor who was on the Little Rascals but it was not the top ones (like Spanky or Alfalfa, etc), she knows that for sure.

She did bring up an artist they lived by and visited often when they moved to the Peninsula in Long Beach by the name of Frank Bowers and his wife Vicki. She has told me about them many times and he was known for painting murals in California. My mom's family would visit with them and he would be in the middle of painting so she got to see a lot of his work. While she was here I did a google search of him and quite a bit of info came up about him. She had no idea that there would be any info on him online but it seems that he made quite a name for himself and there are some forums of people discussing his work. I have never ever heard of him except for my mom knowing him and that's it. What really amazed her is she recognized one of his works of art online that she watched him paint in his home!

We had quite a bit of fun going on Google Earth looking at her home on the Peninsula. She said it still looks the same, with a little fresh paint of course! We had fun doing this together today and my mom's eyes just lit up on things we found online. She just called me and told me to go over the home movies that were made when she was a child to take a look at that neighborhood back in the 40's-50's. I might be doing that later. We had all the films transferred to VHS many years ago.

This is fun! Thanks, MerryCarey!

Sorry to hear that. Hope the shot is helping her, and she feels better soon. Migraines are not fun.

I just started making some pasta. We're doing that w/ a five cheese marinara & some garlic cheese toast. What are you hungry for?

I have been freezing all day! The heat did not come on very often in my classroom even though it was so cold outside. It is still overcast and freezing outside now. I am going to take a pain pill and rest for a while. TTYL
