Don't post your answers in your comment. I will announce the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner after everyone has had time to guess. Hopefully the subjects of each drawing will at least be able to guess themselves.  LOL

BOBBING ALONG

We loaded up the van and we headed for Beverely....for the movies to see THE JUDGE.  The vote was unanimous among these friends from the Senior Center for all thumbs up.  But, reading the reviews this morning, I see everyone is not a fan, so I guess you will have to be THE JUDGE.  

It showed some great courtroom drama and villains deserving the title.  It was a tough one to get through in some places but many of us have seen the same or worse in caring for persons with illness.Take a box of Kleenex  for both the crying and the laughing.  

All the "Bobs" were great.  Robert "Bob" Duvall, Robert "Bob" Downey Jr., and Billy "Bob" Thornton.  Plus Vincent D'Onofrio did a great acting job in this so you can call him Bob if you want. He is a favorite of mine.

Here is a sketch of Billy Bob Thornton that I did on my
Kindle drawing app while watching
FARGO the TV series.

CATCH UP NOT KETCHUP

1.)
My friend Janet surprised me with a nice warm flannel jacket. She made this for me with her own two little hands (and her sewing machine) as a gift for no reason other than our friendship.  How nice is that?!


2.)  
Mama David lives.  How can I explain that my cat which was eulogized a while back for being run over by a car, is actually alive and well? Chewbacca Kitten had looked and acted just like Mama David since the beginning.  Chewy was very elusive and I had not been able to catch her to have her spayed.  Finally I did and learned that the cat I took to the vet for spaying was Mama David.  It was her identical daughter Chewbacca that was struck and killed by a car.  Kind of a  happy/sad tale.  Mama David is resurrected.  She is also much nicer since she was spayed. I have changed the memorial photo for Chewy's short 4 months of life.

CHEWBACCA RIP April 14, 2014 to August 1, 2014
The other siblings turned six months old yesterday and are due their neutering next.  Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia (both boys) and Han Solo and Yoda, both girls. Hope I don't go broke before they all are fixed.


3.)  
I was able to light the pilot on my furnace all by myself.  The cold came in and I called my son to come 160 miles round trip and light the pilot for me until I realized I should be able to do such things myself and I did.  I told him he did not need to come after all because "I am woman, hear me roar!" and he said "No surprises there.  I have been hearing you roar for 44 years."  LOL


4.)  
The neighborhood vultures are standing wait at the back of my field.  I hope it isn't me they are looking for in eager anticipation of their next meal. 

At least they aren't circling.

THIS ABOUT COVERS IT

MY 50TH HIGH SCHOOL REUNION

42 people who haven't changed a bit so why didn't we recognize each other?
Believe it or not, this is our high school English teacher with me.  She is 92 years old and was amazing.  We were thrilled to have her there because she had been everyone's favorite.
Our DJ Ronnie Kaye a local celebrity from our era.  (I posted this for LL Cool Joe)
Our town theater has been restored and they welcomed us for a special showing of 1964 movie GOLDFINGER. Surprisingly no couples sat on the back row of the balcony to make out during the movie.  We really are old!
It was an overwhelming party filled with happiness, sadness, nostalgia, and fun.

NO SCRATCHING AND PATTING

I am not a person who can scratch my head and pat my belly at the same time.  Today I leave for my 50th high school reunion and cannot think about anything else.  I have packed and re-packed at least a dozen times.  So I have not been commenting on your blogs.  Forgive me.  I shall catch up when this is over. Taking my senior picture, my senior ring, my memorabilia charm bracelet along. Oh and my 68 year old self.  Yikes!!

STILL UNDER $5.00


No more frozen chicken water this winter and it only cost $1.38. Of course that doesn't include my son's labor costs or the cost of the other supplies that I already had on hand, like the concrete block, the extension cord and the light bulb. I saw the process on YouTube and immediately knew it was the answer to my problem. Plus I did not want to pay a minimum of $40 for pre-made water warmers. A notch was cut under the block to allow the cord through and my purchase of the plug in for the socket and the bulb was set in the cord. Plug it in and set the water on top and there you have it. Hooray! I can wake up with snow on the ground and go back to sleep because I will know the chicken water is not frozen. Thanks son!



Cut the concrete block in half and carve out a notch for the cord.  Insert plug and light bulb.




The light will warm the block and under the water container.

A happy chicken looks forward to water all winter.
