Why write when I can bask?

Rather than drone on about myself on this, my birthday, I decided just to share pics of the women I love dearly...

Cammie, of course, looking through a Portal To The Future, I think...

Ah, I see Nicole has brought a present!

Mira, impatiently waits for...? I can't tell...

Hey, Julianne! Whatcha lookin' at?

Sandy, don't get all goofy on me now!

Hmmm...Ginger seems to have a clue...

Scarlett, aren't you going to get ready for the party? Well...maybe nevermind!

And once the ladies have left us? Well, Noahie and I will have fun with just a straw...

I'm Open To Suggestions!

Me Birthday is next Tuesday, the 31st...What I'd like to ask people is what should I do? If it's interesting, I may well do it, and blog it also!

vox populi, vox dei!

Victoria asks, so I'll have a bash!

If you check the loverly (my Dick Van Dyke British!) Sundries blog, she has a great post on this fantastic Egyptian theatre in her neck of the swamp...and in the comments she asks me to come up with other Florida related films.

let's see...

Key Largo, of course
The Cocoanuts, complete with Marxian Florida Land Speculation ("Why a Duck?")
Earl Morris has a cool doc, Vernon, Florida
2 Fast 2 Furious! for the cheese value.
A Florida Enchantment, 1914's answer to Transamerica!
Miami Blues, an odd and funky Alec Baldwin vehicle

Cammie's son, 3 1/2 year old son Noah, gets in a vote for Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, which has nothing to do directly with Florida, but is tropical in spirit I suppose. He would vote for CCBB for greatest Film Noir as well, which shows a loyalty to the script and the director which exceeds the bounds of film criticism, which is a good thing.

All I can think of offhand!

An Early (for me!) Morning post! What does it mean?

I just thought I'd give Cammie something to chew on, as Washington Journal ain't ringin' my bell this morning!

Sometimes I view the Internet like my neighborhood, and I like to start the day by making my "rounds," not unlike walking around downtown to see what's new! The drawback is that you can easily get too locked into certain places, which makes exploring a bit tricky...on the other hand, it's near-inifinite in it's ability to surprise you!

I shall now make more coffee, and seek more cheap thrills...

My moods -- like taxi cabs!

So I stand in the rain and wait for one, but the wrong one comes along, and the next thing I know is that I'm headed downtown, when that's NOT where I wanted to go! So I get out, catch a mood going uptown, but dammit, it's the wrong mood, and not wanting to shoot myself somewhere in the upper 40's, I get out and walk. Can't afford a limo, and the subway? I'm just not ready for the subway of my mind just yet. Could I take the bus? Sure why not? So that works for awhile, but I see just the right mood out the window of the bus, and I stop to try and catch it, no matter where it's going...but I never do. Always in a cab, even if I have no place to go.

The Cars, Like Jewels

Maybe it's me, but don't the cars in films in films from the late '40's to the early '60's look fantastic, better than they do now? I noticed this looking at Liz Taylor's little Sunbeam in Butterfield 8. Then I saw it in Dorothy Malone's Allard in Written on The Wind, and again in Grace Kelly's car (what is it?) in To Catch a Thief. Is it just the women's cars? Do we have to wait to James Bond to get a cool ride for men?

Just thinkin' about it!

Cammie's Coffee defines the Year!

Nothin's going on, which, at this point in the year is how I like it! Yes, so far, it's about the sublime enjoyment of coffee and the pedestrian enjoyment of taco chips.
