Darla: wow I am impressed! You have a Cary Grant movie rented?!! most don't realize what they are missing by not watching old movies. (it's like finding NEW movies because they've never seen these movies!

Libritouches: lol glad you enjoyed

CAth: oh please do!

Oh, I'm a big Cary Grant fan from way back (my mom roped me in, as she is an "original" not a rerun fan). :-) I'm enjoying getting my girls hooked on classic movies - they love Shirley Temple movies. So far they've only seen one Cary Grant film - Bringing Up Baby, and it was fun to see how tickled they were by it!

darla:how great!! and how wonderful to introduce the old movies to your children!! As much as I love Bringing Up Baby (I am a big Kate Hepburn fan also) I think I like Cary Grant's Arsenic and Old lace most of all.

Lovely meme - and hurray that you got to 5! Hey, there's alot of stress in your life right now, and you've lost two people that are dear to you very recently. The fact that you are blogging and keeping as happy as you can, is testament to your strength of character and determination, Pat.

As for your wishes, here's hoping a great many of them are fulfilled in a happy way soon. that sugardaddy just has to come soon! lol or you could try selling that trilogy you've written (that's your granny speaking, sugardaddy one hand, your work in the other....) :-D
