Just finished watching "Christmas in Connecticut"---I'd forgotten how delightful "Cuddles" Sakall is in that! It's hard to understand everything that he mutters, but he's fun to watch.

Mr. got the entire "Thin Man" set on DVD---we watched the first two or three back in the summertime when we got them. Maybe we should watch "The Thin Man" again now that the Season is here!

My favorite "non-Christmas/Christmas" film is probably "The Shop Around the Corner." There's a Christmas scene in there that makes me glow every time ...

After the Thin Man is a great one to watch in New Years too!

MerryCarey, TCM is running screwball comedies tonight for their evening showcase. Some of them sound pretty good!

I can't wait to read thru the posts and see who has decorated already. It will take me forever to catch up. In the meantime, Merry Christmas Everybody!!! I think about my MMC pals often, and I sure am happy to be back !!!!!

Hey Tamara, nice to see you!

Merry Christmas!! 🎄

I was very frustrated at the time but then I realized that I have nothing to loose so I'm absolutely fine now. You always need to look at the bright side of the things, don't you?

Wish you all a nice Friday evening!
Good luck with your work this weekend, Victoria Hope you can still have some fun!

I am really behind with my shopping this year. I use to have a lot more time to myself when the girls were younger. I would send them off to school and they wouldn't be home until 3:30 in the afternoon, I would get so much done. Now they all have different school and work schedules and there is usually at least one of them home with me, which is a good thing! I love when they are home, it's great. But it's hard when I'm trying to Christmas shop for them! Even though they are older, I still like their gifts to be surprises.
I hope everyone is well and having a happy Friday so far!!!
Hope you found some great gifts!!

Which ornament did you pick up?
