A Pick Up

One of my favorite movies that I used to share with my 95 year old friend was on today!

“Donovan’s Reef” came out in 1963. I remember being in grammar school and the nuns treating us to this movie in 1972, when I was in 7th grade.

Starring John Wayne, Elizabeth Allen, Lee Marvin , Cesar Romero, and Dorothy Lamour ,among others, it is a cute movie of the period.

The only ” issue” in the movie is when the doctor’s daughter from Boston is meeting her step-sisters and brother, and the audience is wondering, in 1963, if she’ll accept them because they are half Polynesian. My, how time’s flown.

So if you are looking for a cute chuckle of a movie, catch “Donovan’s Reef”. You won’t be sorry.

Back in the Saddle

We are back in the Lankenau shuffle. My mother in law is back in so we got up here tonight to spend some time with her.Her leg is really bad, and needs to get antibiotics four times a day .She is not the easiest patient. We do manage to get her to eat when Jim is here.

She enjoys strolling with him too!

Here’s hoping for a speedy recovery!

The Big One

Today, my youngest Godchild is officially one year old. ” Holy Cow”‘,Luca would say. How fast has time flown.

From this little guy in a walker to a one year old with a Barcelona soccer ball.

My standing allegiance has to be to his big brother, Matti, aka Mr. Taffy, as I have seen all his 4 years.

When I came in this afternoon to take these shots, Matti had informed me that the soccer ball was Luca’s. Evidently boundaries had been set…😂

In the meanwhile, mom Bella supervised the birthday boy who had his biscuit in one hand while trying to commandeer Matti’s LEGO’s in the other. A busy afternoon was had by all indeed, except for Kasia.

In honor of his first birthday, she supervised Luca and even let him pet her headache few times gently.

Happy birthday dearest Luca. I was surprised and honored to be your Godmother, and I hope we’ll be in each other’s lives for a long time to come. Jim, Kasia, and I love you to bits!

Sto lat!

First Comes Love…

Then comes marriage…that’s how the old saying goes.

I can’t help but wonder how the dueling, per se,went down at Buckingham and Kensington palace. Of course, Harry and Meghan had to have their choice of wedding day, so Eugenie got the leftover season.

Isn’t it funny now that Harry and Meghan are expecting their first child…I guess Eugenie and her husband will be looked at as Brits wait for the next step in the catch up game.🇬🇧

Another Royal Wedding

I managed to catch the wedding on television this morning of Eugenie and. Jack.

I had to laugh as the groom took off his glasses once the Princess made her way up to meet him at the altar. I also had another good chuckle when Prince Andrew and Princess Beatrice both went out to straighten Eugenie’s train.

And of course, there were a ton of Royals,

So here’s hoping best of luck for the newest batch of Royal couples. I hope their drama is minimal and lives are long together.

Party’s Over

Well, in anticipation of the storm Michael, Jim turned our tables over snd saved the plants so they wouldn’t fall over.

The did he is slowly going down. They clean tonight will be the first cool night in a long time. I am happy that my fall wardrobe is up and ready to go.

The mums are ready to lead the way and welcome us into the fake.

It’s about time that’s all I have to say.
