Wow!!  The forthcoming Beatles remastered mono box set [~$250.00] is already sold out on Amazon.  It is apparently still available at other sites.  There is also a stereo box set.

Periods in history?

There are really 2 eras that fascinate me.

1. The American West from the 1880s until the turn-of the-century.  [I don' think I'd want to visit there for more than a few hours.  I'd miss my modern conveniences (e.g. air conditioning, indoor plumbing), but it would be fun to meet people like Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and even Jesse James.]


2. Hollywood during the 1930s & 40s.  [I would have loved to be a part of Hollywood's Golden Era.  I guess I was born 30 years too late.]

Good morning!

Another day that's beginning overcast but will likely clear away later and be hot (upper 80s). Typical August here.

I've been up since 4:30, but since I went to bed relatively early, I actually got more sleep last night than I have lately. Pain was far less severe, but today I'm very tight through the right arm and chest. [sigh] I guess this is improvement.

I used part of those early morning hours today to begin a new book that DR td recommended a year or two ago. I bought it but never had the time to read it. Now, with these early mornings, I have time now.

TOD:

I think the 1940s would have been a fascinating time to be alive if I wasn't involved in fighting the war.

I'd also be interested in seeing what life would be like in Tudor England IF I could be a person of means.

I got that last disc five episode of NCIS watched and then rewatched with the commentary of Pauley Perrette and Sean Murray. So, four more episodes and two more bonus features to go. The review is almost all done, too, which is one good thing about taking three days to do a box set: I can build the review in stages and it not seem much like work.

I've enjoyed all of the MAD MEN caricatures. The show's third season begins tomorrow.

bk, That show's first two seasons are on Blu-ray and look wonderful. Excellent drama, too.

TOD-  because of music, movies, plays, songs, fashions, innovations, clubs, etc, I'll go with  Hollywood, New York and Paris in the 1920's and Hollywood and New York in the 20's, 30's and 40's/  I would have to money though, you understand.

I know what bk means about no more bs.   My dad left 25 years of his life neatly packed up in boxes, each one labeled with the year.   I went through everything looking for movie location memorabilia, but found nothing.  I also found nothing to suggest that he had a connection with having a daughter or granddaughter. So all the bs with my father is finally going to be left behind.   I had always suspected he was an out-of-sight out-of-mind person.  Now I know my feeling was true.  The illusion of family needs to be left in the past and I can be free to move forward with the rest of my life.

Onward to being free and happier.

Wow, Sam.  It is always difficult when you actually and finally realize the truth you have always known deep down inside.    I hope you can learn from its value and treat it accordingly.  You're free now!

Also found one movie can that says house on Hesby St.   I'm having it transferred to dvd tomorrow and praying it's the house I lived in during Jr. High and High School.  The only 6 yrs I lived with my dad.  It will be the only pictures I have of the house.

If it's not too expensive, there are two more cans that say Arizona 1967 (I did go back to visit during that year) and I'll take a chance and transfer also.  I don't remember too much from when I was 14 in 1967.

Hope the movies turn out good for you.  Personally I'd love to see Arizona of 1967 if includes Phoenix.  I have fond memories of the way Phoenix was then.

Thanks to those who have posted for Gabe--it's very sweet to wake up to good wishes like that and I want you to know we appreciate it so much.

We had our family dinner last night and it was a lot of fun.  My sister has evidently started channeling my late mother, the less said about that the better.  :)  And tossed in among the assorted nuts on Betsy's side of the family are some really wonderful people.  It turns out several of the women have crushes on Keith Olbermann.  Go figure.  ;)

I, too, would go for the 1940s.  The music, the fashion, the war, the films, the time of a truly "united" states.
Even though she's quite pitchy most of the time, Andrea Marcovicci's "I'll Be Seeing You: The Love Songs of World War II" gets a lot of play here.  I rather like her take on the times and her monologue, joined with a poem, about how people WAITED during those times:  for news from abroad, news of loved ones in action - especially husbands returning to hearth and home.
