Elaine Paige! Elaine Paige as Mammy Yokum. In a ratty fur coat!

Nah! She'd be Daisy or no one.

That reminds me, my poor cat needs his food.  The pup needs a walk on the wet side. The brave and handsome husband seems to want to turn in.

I most royally, shall now to bed.
To sleep off all the nonsense I've just said.

I guess Ann never caught up - either that or she was afraid I was going to cast her as Earthquake McGoon.

Something for which I wish I had a picture:

Lately, Fletcher, the Dalmatian, has been insisting on der Brucer taking him for a walk.  The danged dog will actually get his leash and bring it over to der B, throwing it down at der B's feet.  So once a day der B gets his coat on and enleashes Fletcher.

There's a catch, of course.  Fletcher weighs about half what der B weighs, and is a heckofa lot stronger.  So try to imagine der B being pulled along at the start of the walk, as Fletcher goes on his initial run!

They do settle down after a bit, with Fletcher prancing happily as der B catches his breath.  But they are a sight to see!

 :D

Just dropping in to say hello this early morning. Our rain from Saturday has stopped. We had an impromptu get together with my English cousin on Saturday. We were expecting other friends to come over around 5pm and the buzzer rang about 4:45. "Oh, they're early" we said, so we pressed the buzzer and up the stairs comes Ray. Our other friends arrived about a half hour later and a grand time was had by all. We chatted and laughed and ate until almost 10pm. Then yesterday we had another friend drop by and we played Initials, a game I used to play in college. You put the alphabet (A-Z) down one side of a piece of paper, then find a random sentence which you write next to the alphabet. You then use the corresponding two letters to come up with famous people. You have 15 minutes to do this. There is scoring involved. It's actually more fun than I've made it sound but I'm tired from my weekend activities and I must get back to work.

Kerry, love the picture of you, Lyn and Sugar!

Ben,

It's been ages since I played Initials, and your post brought back some nice memories. I regularly played with Lynne, a friend from England, and it was interesting comparing our selections. Lynne's husband sometimes joined us. As you explained, there are two columns: one using the first 26 letters of a random quotation; the other, alongside the first, using the letters of the alphabet. Lynne's husband, not a great speller, would copy the quotation off my paper, which was fine. But then he'd copy the letters-of-the-alphabet column, too. Hello?

DR Ben, a friend of mine actually has a board game called Initials that I love playing.  Six sets of initials are somehow selected through throws of dice and then six category cards are drawn (dictating such professions as "Author", "Scientist", "Movie Star", etc.)  The object is to find names that match a pair of initials to each category against a time limit.  It's on the corny side, but a lot of fun.

I've used Britt Ekland and Billy Eckstine for BE. When I use Britt Ekland, I usually have to explain who she is and provide evidence of her "celebrity" status but then if no one else has gotten a BE, I get 15 points!

I kept getting bounced off HHW all weekend, probably my stupid dial up service, but everytime I tried to refresh, I would be knocked back to opening page of AOL. >:(

I did tried to upload a photo for my profile but was told it was too big and I could not figure out how to resize it.

Last week some kind DR offered to allow me to email directly to them and said he/she would resize it for me, but my poor befuddled brain has forgotten who it was who made the kind offer. ???

If you are still so inclined, please let me know.

I must now wend my way back to catch up on the weekend's posts...


I only realized after reading today's posts that you were looking for  "bad casting" but got Brendan Fraser stuck in my mind for Lil Abner after reading the notes and now I can't think of anyone else

Of course there are worse images one could get stuck in one's mind so I think I will just enjoy this one for a few moments
 ;)
Ahhh Brendan Fraser........... :-*
