And on that note - a low A (bottom of the keyboard) - I shall be heading out and getting ready for bed.  I got an early morning ahead of me in a few hours.

Goodnight.

Dear Reader Laura - How is Oak Creek Canyon? Did you drive it  or did you go up the interstate.....or was it my fav drive up through Pine around through Flag and down the canyon to Sedona?  

I do miss that part of Az sometimes

We didn't go through it today. The fire was finally contained this week, I heard.  The merchants of Sedona are begging for people to come spend money.  Oak Creek Canyon is where we honeymooned so many years ago.

DR Laura, you do take great photos

Thanks. You didn't see the 50 I deleted, though.

Hello All!  I have not caught up.  It has been a very hectic few days between  hosting a little 2nd of July family barbeque, spending as mucgh "face time" as possible with my btrother and his family before their move to OHIO on Monday the 10th, having my niece over for a sleepover, clearing out the office and leaving things nice for my former co workers and starting the new job!

WHEW!!

I did catch up on today and was pleased to see that elmore's dad is feeling well enough to be cantankerous.


I am going to try to catch up over the next few days... but right now I am TIRED!!

Had some fun video experiences tonight. I began with two episodes of THE CLOSER from season one including my favorite episode with Jason O'Mara and Jefferson Mays as the guest stars.

Next I watched the last of the Charlie Chan movies from the boxed set - CHARLIE CHAN IN LONDON. I think I saw this long ago but didn't remember anything about the case at all, and I did guess the identity of the murderer which is always fun.

DR Elmore, I haven't mentioned how nice it is to have good news about your father.

The Charlie Chan featurette on the disc was fairly average in interest, but there were some VERY revealing restoration comparisons showing examples of the amount of work which went into getting the films to look even passable on DVD.

What impressed me most was how much they removed jittering from the films on their way to final DVD transfers. Very amazing the hundreds of hours of work that went into these films.

To round out the evening I watched a couple of episodes of THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW. I have the first five seasons (the black and white years and the years when Don Knotts was a regular on the show), and tonight I chose two episodes from season 2.

The first episode had Bill Bixby as a guest star playing a spoiled young man arrested for reckless driving.

The second episode guest starred Everett Sloane as a moonshiner who accused Opie of burning down his barn.

What delightfully funny and warm shows these were. THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW is one of those programs that I never tire of watching.

Back from a sparklingly sparkling dinner with Rodzinski and his ever-lovin' TPunk - TPunk looked beautiful, I must say.  Rodzinski had the pounded steak with country gravy (I know Pogue is now jealously jealous), TPunk had spaghetti with mushroom sauce, and I had the Combo Louie and only ate half the bowl of dressing.  Hopefully, between the jog and the fact that it was my only meal o' the day, I won't gain.  We laughed and laughed and just when we thought we could laugh no more, we laughed again.  Other things happened, but I'll talk about them in Ye Olde Notes.  

The DVDs were here on the porch upon my return, and I must say they look pretty swellegant.

I'm jealously jealous.  Only half a half bowl of dressing, not your usual bowl and half?  Of course, just half a bowl is half is 8,000 calories.  Meal for the day?  You're through eating for the week, mister!

And where are the pictures?  I hope you got one of your curmudgeonly waiter, just so I could get nostalgic.

We sit here at 198 postings since ten o'clock and no one can be bothered to show up and post because we are populated with nothing but WUSSBURGERS these days.  Are we all OLD PEOPLE here?  You have to get in bed by ten?  What happened to the days when we would stay up all the livelong night and have FUN?  Blechhh.
