Go Soak Your Head
I'm in the habit of DVRing back-to-back episodes of multi-part programs I want to see so as not to lose continuity. It's also a good way to have entertainment on days when it takes too much energy to move. I'm not a fan of much on daytime television. PBS has a new series going (love PBS) called The Crimson Field staged in World War I (the war to end all wars, more's the pity it didn't) about medics and nurses in a field hospital, an early-day MASH unit, as it were. I would recommend it. Poldark is okay, a kind of Jane Austen knockoff. (The opinions expressed are those of the management only.)
I have to laugh at some of my quirks. I get a kick out of identifying film bloopers. Whoa! Did I really see what I thought I saw? In Out Of Africa, there is a scene in which Robert Redford is peeling fruit from a bowl. There are two pieces in the bowl, he takes one out and suddenly there is one in his hand and again two in the bowl. Hmm. Yesterday I watched an episode of NCIS, New Orleans. A woman poured perhaps a finger of whiskey into a glass, took a drink, and when she put the glass down it had more than she'd poured in the first place. I want a glass like that!
Bessie Anne likes to go to the feed store. She knows I will always come out with two milk bones for her, and believe me, she checks before I can get back in the truck, and there must be two! I had to wait until late afternoon to go to Mt. Aukum so the truck would be in shade for Bess. I waited until this morning to unload the bags of feed. Only in the mid 70s at 6:00, it was better than waiting for the sun to come up.
I think today is going to be a rerun.
