I am sure it has something to do with the old theater in our downtown square. I will try and get pictures of it next time I am at work and will send your way.
Thank you! I'd love to see a photo if you can manage it!

Thanks for saying so! It's very sad that Laurel & Hardy are almost unknown today. I'm showing my age when I say I grew up seeing them on TV and everyone knew them. Now younger generations have never even HEARD of them, much less seen them. They've gone from universally known and loved to practically unknown in the space of a couple decades. In another couple decades, I guess they'll be an obscure footnote in film history, like Lloyd Hamilton or Lupino Lane. Oh, what joy the world will be missing if that day comes!

Mr. heads the local Sons of the Desert (L&H appreciation society) chapter. The meetings used to draw an audience of 30 to 40 of all ages. Now a dozen is a good turnout, and they're mostly the ones who have been regular attendees for years. Well, we'll always love them here. We met thanks to the boys---they brought us together.

Chipotle sauce about ready to go in the water bath. I got my second wind and decided to do the basket of tomatoes I forgot earlier - now I can make something else tomorrow. Me thinks the coffee kicked in already!

THE HOME STRETCH HAS STARTED!
Ninety percent of our journey has been completed and nothing -- not a single further Milestone -- stands between us and the begining of Christmas Season 2013, barely over a month away now!
(Can it be? Can it really be??)

A very brief hard rain fell last night.
This morning has started damp but without active precipitation.
We stand at a warmish 73 degrees here in the capital city at this hour.

Have a Marvelous Monday, Folks!
Woohoo, the season is so close I can almost smell it!!!!!

I have a stress fracture of one of the metatarsal bones. So for the next 4 to 6 weeks I get to wear some fancy new footwear and use Crutches. Which I hate and probably won't use. I'll just use a cane to keep some of the weight off of it. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope your foot heals quickly, those boots are a pain in the....um...um...foot.

It will be a shame when that day comes. When I'm having a bad day, L&H can cheer me up. Earlier today I (jokingly) made a comment that women can't tell me what to do. It reminded me of the hilarious scene from Sons of the Desert where Stan is telling Ollie just how he stands up to his wife! That part makes me laugh every time.

We don't have a Sons of the Desert tent here but I wish we did! If I ever make it up to the north east I would love to show up some night to Mr.'s tent and enjoy some laughs.

Glad your knee is getting better!!!

When I wore mine a few years ago, I would only wear it if I was going out. Then my Dr told me to wear it all the time while I was awake, that is when my foot finally started healing.
