I've learned from experience not to leave the room until the wood stove gets up to temperature and the top vent is closed lest a chimney fire occur. Therefore, I don't light the logs until after chores and can spend a little time in the living room. "Gaslight" with Ingrid Bergman, Charles Boyer, and Joseph Cotten was just starting. It's a movie I've seen more than thirty times and never tire of watching again. Nominated for seven Academy Awards and winning four, it's an exercise in perfection. Nineteen-year-old Angela Lansbury made her American film debut in "Gaslight." Needless to say, the room was warm by the time the movie was over.
The sun made a few brief appearances during the afternoon, but sundown was again overcast and cold. Phooey.
