Ooooooohhhhhhh I just have to tell you where we went to eat the other morning around brunchtime—-somewhere between breakfast and lunch. I was so excited I almost wet my pant-tees—-until we got there and had to drive around and around to find a parking spot. My dear little impatient snuggle buns finally said, "that's enough wasting gas" and pulled into a spot. I scolded Wayne about parking in that handicapped spot but he just shouted, "Limp," and we went inside.

Just like the parking...

I really wish I could forget seeing The Forgotten. It is perhaps the worst movie I have seen since 8 Crazy Nights, and that is the bottom of my scale.

The Forgotten features Julianne Moore (The Hours) as Telly Paretta, a woman mourning the loss of her nine year-old son, Sam, fourteen months ago. Suddenly, Telly's steel-trap memory starts to falter. She forgets where she parked the car or put her keys, but surely she could never forget her son. The problem is everyone else has. Sam starts...

Reflections on All Hallow's Eve

 

Not too long from now, a secular holiday, which sells a lot of candy, costumes, and produces a lot of merry-making (and some mischief) will be upon us. I am referring, of course, to Halloween.

With the popularity of the Harry Potter books and movies, Halloween has taken on a somewhat different face, since I was a boy. It's true that when we were children in the 1950's and the 1960's many of us participated in annual "tricks or treats." We dressed up in...

The results were to appear in the next issue. Further along in this issue were listed...

Ooooooohhhhhhh I just have to tell you about Eatin' Good in the Waynedale neighborhood. That's what Wayne came up with, the little rhyme maker. He's so cute.

Have you been to the China Palace lately? They have the deliciousist noontime meals and even deliciouser cookies to munch on for dessert. Wayne and I got a nice booth in the main dining area. The air was nice and clean and there wasn't any stinky old ashtrays on the table either. I just wish they could play a little Kenny Rogers or Neil...

Sometimes I just get the urge to watch a really girly movie. I mean a movie with all the pretty dresses, makeup, hair, dancing, cute boys, the whole lot of prissy, filly, feminine features. I'm looking for the kind of movie that my boyfriend will refuse to watch. I got the craving last weekend, so my best gal pals and I went out to see Vanity Fair.

Vanity Fair, based upon the classic novel by William Makepeace Thackeray, features Reese Witherspoon (Legally Blonde) as Becky Sharp, a poor young...
