Well, for a few more hours, it's one-one-oneone. Then it's just regular old day to day stuff again.

I would love a 3 Stooges marathon right about now.

We're getting re-runs and crappy movies, etc.

@ehBeth,
If I remember, Bailey is the one most like Pacco, so I'll send him zorro good stuff.

I have to admit that I prolong my attachment to my now dead dog in keeping the photo as an avatar and keeping bringing up this dog up in conversation.

This will pass. Meantime, he was a balancer for me, and in a way still is.

No, no, no, their last name was Cartright... Hoss, Little Joe and Adam Cartright. I forgot what name Pa had? Then there was Hop Sing ( was this his name?)

I don't like the 3 Stooges, the Marx Brothers were so much better...

@CalamityJane,
Lorne Greene's character's name was Ben Cartwright.

Sons' names (in order of age): Adam Cartwright, Eric "Hoss" Cartwright, and Joseph "Little Joe" Cartwright. Their ranch was the Ponderosa. The nearby town was Virginia City. I believe they were supposed to be located near Lake Tahoe.

Went to the Susky River at Conowingo Dam and watched the eagles stealing fish from each other. Then went down to Glasgow Delaware to see "True GRit II" and went and had a nice latte at the Elkton New years town stroll.
Very Satisfyin and slow day , Twilight Zone is starting to repeat and Im off it for this year.

I suppose 3 Stooges isn't everyone's cup of tea, BUT Laurel and Hardy are better that Marx Bros. Wink

I like funny people. Each have their own personalities and routines and I love most all of them.

@farmerman,
Dammit, I'm losing my wits for flicking around re links on a2k. I hope this isn't permanent.

Meantime, Dys, be well and belligerent.

I just figured out that I was a day ahead of myself--the day I thought was New Year's Eve day was actually the 30th - I had a celebratory lunch here with friends then I drove down to Hastings (battle of 1066 country) to visit another friend.

I guess I was thinking that was New Year's eve as we had quite a fun celebration - he made lentil soup which was very good and we had some of that - went to the pub where he started in on me - you know, he's the sophisticated European and I'm the stupid naive American and a woman at that, AND a mother who'd stayed home with her kids so he said stuff like, 'Housewife is just a title women invented so they could stay home and do **** ALL while the man goes to work'.
To which I just laughed and said, 'Yeah and it was FUN ...I look at it like this...I quit my successful career so I could be a stay-at-home drunk....'
(I didn't make that up - I got that from a blunt card).

Then on the actual New Year's eve we went to see Canterbury Cathedral which is IMPRESSIVE!! I've seen a lot of Cathedrals - here and in the rest of Europe (because I like iconographic art) but I have to say there is just something really grand and substantial and amazing about Canterbury Cathedral. Maybe, because as my friend explained (he's an history and architecture afficianado) it's really two cathedrals in one - the early romanesque and the gothic added on later.If you ever get the chance to see it - don't pass it by.

Then we went to see this little Romanesque church in Brookland with the only lead font in England. That was quite something - it was 12th century and sort of a melding of the pagan with very early Christianity. You can see all the images of the people working along side what look to be pagan symbols.

I took a picture of my friend amid several crosses as a joke because he is so ANTI-christiness...

Then I drove home and waited for my daughter to get home from her party. She showed up the next morning. I fell asleep on the couch. I don't think I made it to midnight.

We're doing New Year's Day celebration today as my son has seemingly just recovered from his New Year's Eve celebrations enough to join us -I've invited him the last two days but he's been 'Tired'. So New Year's Day dinner with black-eyed peas and cornbread is today and then it's back to work for everyone tomorrow.

Happy New Year - and may it bring nothing but happiness to everyone.
