I have one rose left that hasn't collapsed yet. I moved it into a bud vase. The rest of them are hanging upside down drying in the laundry closet.
Sometimes I wonder what cats are looking at?
Or looking for? Maybe she's still looking for moths? LOL! (I've been keeping the porch door shut so the moths have been trapped outside.)
I haven't mentioned movies for a long time and have seen some pretty interesting ones this past month. Netflix, of course. New ones and a few older ones.
These were via the mail:
Albert Nobbs (2011)
Answers To Nothing (2011)
State of Play (2003-British miniseries)
Zen (2011-new British series)
Angels Crest (2011)
In The Valley of Elah (2007)
These were on the instant movies:
Everything Is Illuminated (2005)
The Tenth Man (1988)
No blockbuster comedies in there. But, honestly, the comedies I have seen lately, like Carnage (a comedy/drama, I guess) and Bridesmaids...I just don't find that kind of humor very funny. Vomiting, belching, casual sex, drunkenness, fighting...seems to be the direction most of the popular humor is going these days. I keep renting one now and again when they're raved about...parts of them may be okay, but I'll pass. Just not for me. Even though they are, obviously, very popular with a lot of people.
I miss when movies and TV shows generally had a bit cleaner humor and less gross out or shock tactics (not that they're the least bit shocking). Shows that I could giggle all the way through or get a couple good belly laughs from that weren't so demeaning, negative, and insulting, you know? I never liked that kind of sophomoric humor when I was young. Not a Three Stooges fan, for example. I know...I know...they are loved. But I always preferred a more gentle humor that came from knowing the characters themselves...like Andy Griffith, Leave It To Beaver, or Mary Tyler Moore. I even much prefer the darker more tragic humor...like in Mash or in Everything Is Illuminated...to fart jokes. Maybe I am a bit warped myself? Oh well. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. Any laughter is good medicine, right?
Anyways, I hope the links worked this time. :)
Been in the 60s and 70s--ahhh! Even clouded over, I love it! I worked on the Circle Letter for a couple days and got that off in the mail. Been in a letter writing focus the past couple weeks...and puttering my days away before I know it. :) Today the sun is shining through big fluffy white clouds. I am always behind reading blogs, so I think I will do some blog checking while I eat lunch today. :)
But first, Karma is very restless this morning and so I'm going to run around the apartment with her string toy for a while and wear us both out--LOL! ;)
Have a good one!!
