'Man overboard! Save the blanket.'

We just watched a new movie last night --- well, "new" to us. It's a movie from 1940, but most of us had never seen it! It's called It's a Date starring Deanna Durbin and Walter Pidgeon. Wow!

If you've never seen it --- then see it! And if the title of this blog post doesn't make sense to you, then definitely see it! Walter Pidgeon is hilarious in this one as "The Pineapple King". The man who makes three cents every time anybody eats a pineapple. Deanna is the daughter of a famous actress, and she's even better than her mother. So she says. The supporting cast is great with Henry Stevenson, Eugene Pallette and Cecilia Loftus. Not to be missed.

Other than selling some stuff on eBay, we haven't been up to much lately. Buddy and Kay were over for a visit today, and we're hoping to make it down to their place in the next week or so! Elizabeth actually bought something on eBay. It's a sheet music book of the six songs from the 1940s film Rachel and the Stranger. Believe it or not, they are all sung (in the film) by Robert Mitchum, and he actually recorded them on record. They're gorgeous songs, and we're thrilled to get the music. Now, on to the practicing. :)

We were snowed in again this weekend and didn't even make it to church. That makes three in a row! It's supposed to stay in the cold temps for another few days. Summer . . . how much do I love you? Let me count the ways.
